2020 NFL Draft War Room: New York Giants

2020 NFL Draft
The Giants are all in on Daniel Jones. Will the 2020 NFL Draft be a stepping stone towards trying to make him work? We go inside the war room! (John Sommers II/UPI)

The New York Giants really botched the last game of the season when they beat the Redskins in the season finale. What would have ended up with Chase Young, has now turned into a mystery selection. The 2020 NFL Draft will probably be the final one for Dave Gettleman unless the Giants make a huge turnaround somehow. Let’s get right to it. What will the New York Giants do during the 2020 NFL Draft? We go inside the war room.

The Giants have two choices with the number 4 pick. It’s either Isaiah Simmons or an offensive tackle. It’s really hard to pass on someone like Simmons. The man is an alien. However, I’m going to guess that the Giants go with a tackle. New York has invested so much into Saquon Barkley and Daniel Jones. Gettleman has to protect the investment.

I’m going to call my shot with this one. I think Tristan Wirfs of Iowa is the pick. I’m going to double down with my prediction. I think the Giants go with Tyler Biadasz, the center from Wisconsin in the top of the 2nd round.

Gettleman’s reputation is riding on the fact that Barkley can have a Hall of Fame career and Daniel Jones is a franchise quarterback. How do you do those two things? Give them a dominant offensive line. I believe that’s the primary focus for the Giants during the 2020 NFL Draft.

The rest of the draft can be put towards the defense. Golden Tate, Sterling Shepard, and Darius Slayton is a good enough trio so that you can really focus on defense. Leonard Williams, Dalvin Tomlinson, and Dexter Lawrence is actually a good defensive front. Blake Martinez was signed to be the middle linebacker. That’s a check. James Bradberry and Deandre Baker as young corners? Good there. What New York needs is a pass rusher.

Lorenzo Carter hasn’t quite popped yet. Oshane Ximines was fine as a rookie (4.5 sacks). The Giants need that one guy who can book mark 10 sacks. Julian Okwara in the third round could wind up being that guy. Okwara posted 19.5 sacks the past two years for Notre Dame. He can play either scheme too. The selection would make a lot of sense.
