New York Giants 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 6.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 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 (3/5)

11. Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida

In the previous iteration of this mock, the Giants selected Alabama's Jaylen Waddle. With Waddle (and the top three receivers) off the board, Gettleman still gives Daniel Jones another weapon.

A mismatch in the passing game, Pitts is a top-four prospect on our big board so it's possible that he's the best prospect available on Gettleman's in this scenario as well. A playmaker in the mold of Darren Waller, Pitts won the John Mackey Award, given to the nation's top tight end, and was the first tight end ever to be a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award. Pitts had 43 catches for 770 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2020.

ESPN - McShay (3/4)

11. Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

The Giants have to give this offense more to work with. They were one of four teams to average fewer than five yards per play last season, and their 5.9 yards per pass attempt ranked No. 29. However, Waddle's 18.9 yards per catch over the past two seasons ranked eighth in the country. There isn't a more dangerous player with the ball in his hands in the draft class, thanks to excellent top-end speed, vision and elusiveness. And I hope Nick Saban has been glued to his TV because that's four straight Alabama players off the board, including two first-round receivers for the second time in two years.

Jordan Raanan on his fit with the Giants: Waddle can immediately slot into the Giants' three-receiver sets alongside Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton. He would essentially step into the role that the recently released Golden Tate played last season but provide a big-play ability that the offense was missing. Plus, Waddle would contribute immediately on special teams as a returner.

2020 NFL Power Rankings: New York Giants

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the New York Giants rank in terms of average, best and worst in our consensus Week 17 NFL Power Rankings:

Below you will find a Week 17 roundup for the Giants in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 27

Leonard Williams, DT: The Giants traded for Williams last season and used the franchise tag to keep him. He ended up having a career year with 8.5 sacks and 25 QB hits and will now be even more expensive. Williams has hit the quarterback on 6.3 percent of his chances, which ranks ninth league-wide and is especially impressive for an interior lineman. It feels like he's been around forever, but Williams will be just 27 at the start of next season.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 24

They are still alive in the division race, which is amazing. They were bad in losing to the Ravens, but win and get help from the Eagles and they are NFC East champs.
