The New York Giants were mocked to draft a number of different players at a number of different positions and when they were on the clock in the first round, they were in position to take a player I didn’t believe would be available to them, and they got their draft started off right.

Best pick: Odell Beckham Jr.

Worst pick: Jay Bromley

Analysis: I loved the pick of Beckham in the first round as he is one of the most versatile player sin the draft who will step in for the departed Hakeem Nicks and push Rueben Randle to be a better player while helping out in the return game. Weston Richburg is the top center in the draft and a Day 1 starter.

I like Bromley as a defensive tackle, but I thought he was a little too rich for my liking in the third round. But he plugs a hole on that defense and is one of seven former team captains drafted by the Giants this year.

Heisman finalist and w,000-yard rusher Andre Williams was a fine pick in the fourth round and if David Wilson can make a full recovery form his neck injury gives the Giants backfield a nice “thunder and lightning” component to it.

Late round pick I liked the most is USC outside linebacker Devon Kennard, i think he has some upside as a pass rusher off the edge.

Grade: B+
