Giants Draft Needs
- OL: The Giants’ offensive line has been a pain point over multiple seasons. In spite of adding 2020 first-round pick Andrew Thomas, the team ranked second-to-last in sacks allowed per game (3.1) and will need to address this issue in the draft. Hopefully Dave Gettleman can find another “hog molly” in this year’s draft.

- OT: Projected starting LT Andrew Thomas finished in the third-percentile of Pass Blocking Efficiency (93.2) as a rookie in 2020, and projected starting RT Nate Solder finished in the 15th-percentile (94.8) in 2019 before opting out last season. Rookie swing tackle Matt Peart was even worse (93.2).
- OG: Prospective holdover left guard option Will Hernandez graded 59th of 86 guards while Shane Lemieux was dead last. Free-agent acquisition and projected starting RG Zach Fulton was better overall (44th) but posted just a 17th-percentile mark in Pass Blocking Efficiency (96.1).
- DE: The Giants finished with 40 sacks last season, tied for 12th, but their only player to compile more than four sacks was Leonard Williams (11.5), who primarily lines up inside.
