How does Ossai’s athleticism and versatility rank among the top EDGE prospects?

The EDGE class in the 2021 NFL Draft is an interesting one. Each of the potential top pass rushing prospects brings something different to the table.

In the case of Joseph Ossai of Texas, those traits are explosive athleticism and uncommon versatility. Ossai was able play multiple positions at Texas and truly threaten offensive tackles with his speed from a variety of...

Ed’s 6-round Giants mock draft: A scenario that probably won’t (shouldn’t?) happen

Ed thinks way outside the box this week

As I continue to try to present potential 2021 NFL Draft scenarios for the New York Giants, you might call this one the ‘Dave Gettleman would never do this’ mock draft. Let’s get into it, and you will easily see why.

In the end, I’m sure some of you will end up calling this the “what not to do” mock draft. This is either a very cool mock draft because of what it accomplishes long term, or the worst mock...

‘Things I think’ as we get closer to the 2021 NFL Draft

Thoughts on draft guides, draft prospects, Sam Darnold, more

We are less than three away from the 2021 NFL Draft. With that in mind, here are some ‘things I think’ as we wait.

The Beast is on the loose

One of the highlights of draft season, and most useful things you can get your grubby little draftnik hands on, is the annual draft guide from Dane Brugler of The Athletic. Brugler calls the guide ‘The Beast.’ Before Brugler was the draft...

Cornerback prospects to target in the later rounds

The New York Giants are gearing up for the 2021 NFL Draft after a successful free agency period. The Giants made a few splash signings in free agency. One key signing that the Giants made was that of Adoree’ Jackson, a talented cornerback that could help make the Giants’ defense one of the top units in the NFL this season.

NFC East Notebook: One big thing we learned about each team during free agency

Here are the takeaways from each team’s free agency haul

We are now in the part of the offseason when major free agency moves have already been made and mock drafts multiply by the day in preparation for the 2021 NFL Draft to begin in just three weeks.

A team’s moves during free agency are always revealing as they simultaneously answer some questions and pose others. So during this in-between time, it feels fitting to reflect on what we have learned...

2021 NFL Draft prospect profile: Najee Harris, RB, Alabama

Photo by Jamie Schwaberow/Getty Images

Harris figured heavily in Alabama’s offense, can he be a lead back in the NFL?

It might say something about how the running back position is perceived in 2021 that we are faced with a very strong class of runners and don’t hear much about them.

Two of the running backs at the top of the depth chart have been two of the most consistently productive players in college football, and yet have been left out of the first rounds of many mock drafts. Only a...

Giants select Rashawn Slater in this 7-round mock draft from CBS

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

What impact would drafting a lineman have on the rest of the Giants’ draft?

The 2021 NFL Draft is getting closer, and we will finally have an answer to the question “Who will the New York Giants draft?”

But until we get that answer, we’ll be getting a steady stream of mock drafts. We try to keep track of all the bigger mocks out there, and had to mention this seven-round mock draft from Josh Edwards of CBSsports.

For once, the mock doesn’t have the...

New York Giants trade-back scenario to add more draft capital

The luxury of a given NFL team having a solid foundation is that you can take the best player available in the first round of the NFL draft. The New York Giants, who currently sit at 11, have an interesting choice to make if a team presents a trade-back scenario.

Big Blue View mailbag: Draft, draft and more draft questions

The mail’s here

The 2021 NFL Draft is creeping closer, and this week’s Big Blue View Mailbag is filled with questions about how the New York Giants might approach it. So, let’s get to it.

Jeff Newman asks: Ed, most people feel offensive line is our biggest question mark heading into the draft. Let’s assume the Giants only devote one early round pick to it. I feel unless we somehow get Sewell, who is probably good to pass up, or Slater who could play tackle or guard, the bigger need...

We have a new leader as the mock draft board shifts away from receiver for the Giants

For the first time since our initial mock draft tracker three months ago, a wide receiver does not top the chart as the player most often selected for the New York Giants.

Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons, selected for the Giants in 11 of 80 mock drafts tracked this week (13.8 percent) tops a varied list of candidates for the 11th overall selection...

2021 NFL Draft prospect profile: Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech

Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images

Is Darrisaw a franchise left tackle?

A true franchise left tackle is one of the most sought after commodities in the whole of the NFL. Some prospects are known well in advance of the draft, some of whom are anticipated as early as their freshman seasons. Other players, however, don’t emerge to take advantage of their athletic tools until their final seasons.

That was the development arc for Christian Darrisaw of Virginia Tech. While his potential was known...

One underrated WR the New York Giants should target in the 2021 NFL Draft

Since the New York Giants don’t necessarily need to draft a wide receiver with the 11th overall pick after signing Kenny Golladay in free agency, they have the luxury of waiting until later on to find a pass-catcher with upside.
