I like Gardner but would hate to pass up on either Neal or Ekwonu with our #5 pick. Gardner is getting a lot of mention. He's not likely to be there for our #7.
I wonder how the new GM and coaches feel about prioritizing a prized tackle or a lock-down corner?
I would not mind if they kept one of their first-rounders and traded back or traded for a future first-rounder (and more) for their second first this year. Acquire picks and build for the future.
Just make sure you nail that first-round pick!
I like Linderbaum also but aside from weighing only 290 lbs. he has very short arms. That makes two knocks against the Rimington Award winner and possibly enough to scare some teams. We need heft and power to open holes for Saquon.
This following on the heels of Logan Ryan's release:
[His departure leaves the Giants with Xavier McKinney and Julian Love as their only experienced safeties under contract. It could indicate that the Giants might be seriously eyeing Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton in the first round of the 2022...
I think that Gardner or Hamilton may find their way into one of our first two picks. They are playmakers. A blitzing defense better have DB's that can hold their own.
I have been reading that Schoen and Buffalo never drafted O-linemen that high. The belief is that an O-line need only have good...
Good player. Solid move. Signing him and Jon Feliciano, former Bill, helps solidify things on the O-line prior to the draft. The 3/14/22 write-up on Glowinski has me very optimistic! With him at right guard it will certainly help a rookie RT (looks like that is where we are headed).
I can see the Giants getting one of the two top tackles at 5 and trading back a bit for picks and a shot at either Linderbaum, Cross, Penning or Reimann. More picks and a chance to get one of the better guards in the second round - maybe Zion Johnson out of BC?
