The draft wrapped up on Saturday and the New York Giants got a lot better. To be fair, the Giants really had no where to go but up after last season. It was breath of fresh air having a live sports related event on my T.V. but it brought the stress of sports right back with it. I sat there for 45 minutes waiting until the Giants pick with hopes that they would pick Tristan Wirfs because I had him as the first Offensive Lineman draft at +120. This ended up like my bets usually go, it lost. The Giants drafted the Left Tackle out of Georgia, Andrew Thomas.

Thomas is a 6’5 320 pound animal, who lives on big games. I am not gonna sit here and act like I have any idea how you can tell if an offensive lineman is good because I have no idea. This pick just seemed right for the Giants. This fills the massive hole that Nate Solder created on the left side of Thomas is also musician and what’s not to like when abnormally large humans play instruments.

 

Grade: A+

Xavier McKinney

The second round of the draft was up in the air due to all of the talent that was still on the board. Would the Giants pick another offensive lineman or fix their horrible defense? They fixed their atrocious secondary with the number 1 safety in the draft Xavier McKinney

McKinney seems like a piece to the secondary that was much needed after Landon Collins departure (crybaby). He hits hard and is a ballhawk.

Grade: A+

Matt Peart

Third round, the Giants went decided to fix another hole at right tackle. Matt Peart has the biggest wingspan in the draft and seems to be a developmental piece that the Giants could teach all year to get him where he needs to be when Nate Solder eventually retires. Peart also seems to be a very nice guy and I am looking forward to interviewing him on my podcast: New York Deserves Better.

Grade A+

Darnay “THA GREAT” Holmes

Fourth Round the Giants decided to keep the pattern going by selecting Darnay Holmes a cornerback from UCLA. This kid is fast as hell and a great corner that slid down the board due to injuries. A huge pick up for the Giants with Deandre Baker being a huge question mark. Also text Darnay if you want he is always available to talk.

Grade: A+

Shane Lemiuex

The fifth round the Giants took an offensive lineman, Shane Lemiuex. Not much to say about him besides the fact that he is a guard and hopefully he transitions to center.

Grade A+

I have to be honest, I do not want to go through the rest of the picks but if you caught on to the pattern you know that I have given the rest of the Giant’s draft picks an A+ grade.

The Giants are back baby!
