A Rundown of All the New York Giants 2017 NFL Draft Picks

Sports Illustrated has a complete rundown of all of the Giants 2017 Draft Picks and some commentary as well.

Round 1, Pick 23 (No. 23 overall)

Evan Engram, TE, Ole Miss: If you happened to follow the SI draft rankings, it was Engram and not David Njoku who slotted in as this class’s No. 2 TE, behind O.J. Howard. In that context alone, this is a sneakily strong pick by GM Jerry Reese. It’s also a classic Giants pick, as it bypasses the team’s glaring need at linebacker despite Reuben Foster’s fall and Zach Cunningham’s availability. Offensive tackle could have been in the cards, too, but this pick will continue to push the Giants toward a throw-first-ask-questions-later offense. Engram, Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall, Sterling Shepard … how does a defense defend this attack?? GRADE: A-

Round 2, Pick 23 (No. 55)

?Dalvin Tomlinson, DT, Alabama: By taking Evan Engram in Round 1 (a pick that drew an A-minus grade here), the Giants sort of pushed themselves out of the early O-line market. This was a good range for the D-line, however, and the Giants needed help there after losing Johnathan Hankins. Tomlinson is a big, difficult-to-move body for the middle. GRADE: B?

Round 3, Pick 23 (No. 87)

?Davis Webb, QB, Cal: The Eli Manning succession plan is in place. That’s at least in theory what was happening with this pick. The first-round hype on Webb earlier this week was hard to figure, but as a sit-and-wait QB in this round, it’s a fit. If he turns out to be that Round 1-caliber player, the Giants will have their answer whenever Manning calls it a career. GRADE: B?

Round 4, Pick 34 (No. 140) Wayne Gallman, RB, Clemson

Round 5, Pick 23 (No. 167) Avery Moss, DE, Youngstown State

Round 6, Pick 16 (No. 200) Adam Bisnowaty, OT, Pittsburgh
