New York Giants 2022 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft, we will update our New York Giants Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the New York Giants from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Giants:

EDSFootball - Hanson (5/10)

7. Drake Jackson, EDGE, USC

The Giants got a nice value with Azeez Ojulari falling to the middle of Round 2 in the 2021 NFL Draft and add to their pass rush here with Jackson. While not as productive in a shortened 2020 campaign, Jackson led USC in sacks (5.5) and TFLs (11.5) as a true freshman in 2019 and has the traits to become a top-five pick.

12. Christian Harris, LB, Alabama

The Giants have made a number of upgrades to their pass rush (including Drake Jackson earlier in this 2022 NFL mock draft) and to their secondary, but they could use a difference maker in the middle of the their defense. Harris enters his junior season as a three-year starter and had 79 tackles, seven TFLs, 4.5 sacks and an interception in 2020.

Touchdown Wire - Schofield (5/7)

7. Christian Harris, LB, Alabama

Quarterback here is indeed tempting...

After all, we are entering the "year of no excuses" with New York Giants signal-caller Daniel Jones. The team added wide receiver Kenny Golladay in free agency as well as the shifty Kadarius Toney in the draft, and with Jones entering year three, he has to take a step forward.

Assuming he does, linebacker is the kind of position that Dave Gettleman could look to address early in the draft. Christian Harris is a former defensive back, and his athleticism makes him perhaps the ideal modern linebaker.

11. Zion Nelson, OT, Miami (FL)

Thanks to the draft-night trade between the Chicago Bears and the New York Giants, the deal that allowed the Bears to move up for Justin Fields, the Giants are now back on the clock. Again, quarterback could be in play here if Daniel Jones fails to take the kind of step forward Giants fans are hoping to see in 2021. Or, Dave Gettleman could package this pick and the other first-round selection to move up to the top of the board and add a new face at QB.

Assuming that the organization wishes to move forward with Jones, offensive tackle could be in play for the Giants. Andrew Thomas looked better down the stretch in the 2020 season, Matt Peart performed well for a third-round selection, and the organization also returns Nate Solder for the 2021 campaign after he opted-out in 2020. Still, if the unit does not perform as well as hoped, tackle could be in the mix next season. Nelson started all 13 games at left tackle for the Miami Hurricanes as a true freshman in 2019, and followed that up with another seven starts in 2020.

Here is where the New York Giants rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a post-draft roundup for the Giants in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 23

Player who benefited most from draft: QB Daniel Jones

The Giants were going to draft DeVonta Smith or Jaylen Waddle with the 11th pick if they had fallen to that spot. They didn't. But the Giants were so intent on getting more playmakers for Jones that they still drafted wide receiver Kadarius Toney after trading down to No. 20. As if adding Kenny Golladay, John Ross III and Kyle Rudolph in free agency and getting back Saquon Barkley from a torn ACL wasn't enough, now Jones has Toney (referred to as an "offensive weapon" by one coach) in the mix. Any lack of success from Jones in his third season won't be due to a lack of talent around him. -- Jordan Raanan

NFL.com -- Rank: 22

The Giants traded out of each of their first two picks -- unprecedented draft maneuvering for "Trader" Dave Gettleman, who had famously never traded back in his career before this past weekend. The Giants came out of the wheeling and dealing with multiple picks in the first, third and fourth rounds of the 2022 draft. Kadarius Toney, selected 20th overall after Gettleman's blockbuster deal with the Bears, gives Daniel Jones another high-upside playmaker. Jones will have no shortage of options in a make-or-break third year: Toney joins an offense that already boasts Saquon Barkley, Kenny Golladay, Evan Engram, Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard.
