The New York Giants have some building blocks but not enough and the 2020 NFL Draft can get them on track, which they do in this 7-round mock draft.
It’s not exactly been a banner couple of years for the New York Giants. Despite getting an unbelievably talented player in 2018 by drafting Saquon Barkley, they passed on a quarterback in that class and didn’t get great value at No. 2 overall. They followed that up in the 2019 NFL Draft by seemingly reaching on Daniel Jones and Dexter Lawrence in the first round.
Of course, many of those selections have not been as bad as initially perceived. Barkley has proven to be every bit as talented as anyone could hope for, Lawrence has been a low-key stud for the Giants defense and Jones, though imperfect, has flashed the potential to be a franchise quarterback to take over for Eli Manning.
While that may all be true, there are still obvious holes that the Giants will need to fill in the 2020 NFL Draft. They have started setting the foundation for their roster but the finished product is not currently in view. And what they do in 2020 — even without a third-round pick thanks to the Leonard Williams trade — could go a long way in determining their long-term outlook.
Perhaps the biggest thing that the Giants must address is their defense. On every level, despite their additions, this team needs big-time help in stopping opposing teams. That’s something they should address early and often in the 2020 NFL Draft. However, the offense should not be neglected either, though, as Jones needs help both at wide receiver and on the offensive line.
So what can Big Blue do to address these needs in the 2020 NFL Draft? Let’s take a look at the haul that the New York Giants can come away with in this seven-round 2020 mock draft.
