Giants need receiver, cornerback with final 2 picks in draft

Saquon Barkley

Saquon Barkley will look awfully familiar to Penn State fans when he takes the field as a New York Giant for the first time.

Coming off a 3-13 season that cost coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese their jobs, the Giants seemingly found value and filled need with every pick in the National Football League draft that ended Saturday.

New general manager Dave Gettleman did just that. They needed to address their front seven and offensive line on Day 2. The Giants then added to its defense selecting linebacker Lorenzo Carter out of Georgia and defensive tackle BJ Hill from NC State in the third round.

So what did the experts and analysts think of Big Blue's haul?




One NFL evaluator told the News at the NFL Combine that he believed the 6-5, 309-pound Crosby, who has experience at both tackle spots, actually could grow into an All-Pro guard due to his strength and nasty streak.

Hernandez will open running lanes for star rookie running back Saquon Barkley and will immediately help in pass protection. Fellow free agent Nate Solder is set at left tackle and Brett Jones returns at center. It's more than a game to me. They already were without a seventh-round pick, which was traded past year for cornerback Ross Cockrell.

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.

We'll find out for sure on Sunday when the draft concludes if Barkley's able to uphold the record. Using a fourth-round pick instead on Kyle Lauletta, particularly with last year's third-rounder Davis Webb on the roster, was a little freaky.
