New York Giants: 2018 NFL Draft grades for Day 2 picks

  • The Giants drafted B.J. Hill and R.J. Mc Intosh to bolster the defensive line

New coach Pat Shurmur and Giants GM Dave Gettleman could go offensive line again before this draft is up. "He is a very athletic kid for his size". The latter came from Tampa Bay in the deal that sent Jason Pierre-Paul to the Buccaneers. "He can run, he can pull and he plays very smart".

The Giants are one of the few teams who were in need of a potential franchise replacement QB as much as the Patriots, as 37-year-old Eli Manning has struggled over the last few seasons to produce at his highest level. Gettleman described him as "cranky". He laughed when asked about his on-field demeanor.

"I think that's why I was brought here, to bring an impact to the running game, to have that same domination that I had in college where a team wants to just shut me down, and then it just opens up everyone else", said Barkley, who had 53 total touchdowns in three years with the Nittany Lions. Hernandez's movement ability can make it a more diverse ground game than the simplistic inside zone one we saw under Ben McAdoo, too. "So whenever I get on that field I take it with all seriousness".

The O-line: The offensive line will be dramatically different than the banged-up, inefficient unit that played a year ago.


Gettleman has been hard at work this offseason improving the Giants' offensive line, signing left tackle Nate Solder and interior lineman Patrick Omameh in free agency.

Flowers, however, is not taking part in the organized team activities and the recent minicamp, both voluntary events.

He'll compete with Jon Halpio, John Greco and John Jerry for the starting right guard spot. He forced seven fumbles, recovered six and had 54 pressures.
