You could make the argument that New York should address their offensive line before this. However, they have so many other pressing needs and, considering both the value of the players taken before them and the linemen available in free agency, they may be able to afford to wait.

Ezra Cleveland, however, could be a valuable commodity out of Boise State. While his technique can be an issue at times, all of the physical tools that he puts on his good tape make you believe that he can be a strong asset at the NFL level.

If Reggie Floyd’s development were to go properly in New York, getting him with the first of the Giants’ pair of seventh-round picks would be an absolute steal. The Virginia Tech safety has great size and athleticism for the position, boasting versatility to be an asset in coverage as well as playing up in the box against the run. While he needs to be molded into a smarter player, the upside of pairing him with Jabrill Peppers is wholly enticing.

Kalija Lipscomb would be an interesting way for the Giants to end the 2020 NFL Draft. While not the most physically dominant players (6-1, 200 pounds) or someone who will blow up the combine, he has the ability to be an effective weapon in the passing game.

Lipscomb is a polished route-runner already, more so than even some of the top prospects at the position in this class. He could come in as a rotational, complementary player for the Giants offense and really help give Jones another option to work with.
