As portion of The Post’s 2021 NFL Draft preview, we examine what the Giants may do at just about every position. Thursday: Cornerback.
Do the Giants have adequate cornerbacks? Maybe, if every thing goes according to prepare with the gamers they have on their roster, which practically by no means occurs. Could they consider a cornerback higher in this NFL draft — as large as the No. 11-over-all choose? That is unquestionably a probability, even though it is additional most likely they go in a diverse direction in the to start with round.
Two a long time in the past, the Giants traded up into the first round to get DeAndre Baker out of Ga with the No. 30-overall pick. That turned out to be a awful select, thinking about Baker experienced a bad rookie year and was released just after he was hit with really serious prison fees in Florida (the charges had been dropped following the Giants allow him go). Getting Sam Beal in the 2018 supplemental draft has also, as a result considerably, amounted to nothing at all. Beal’s NFL résumé includes only six game titles played in three seasons he opted out in 2020.
These misses created it very important the Giants open the vault in 2020 to sign James Bradberry and do it yet again in 2021 to indication Adoree’ Jackson. Bradberry was large in his Giants debut time. Jackson will be an quick starter. They also have Darnay Holmes as a slot corner coming into his second NFL period, as nicely as Isaac Yiadom, who began 10 game titles in 2020, as the Giants struggled to uncover an outside corner to use with Bradberry.
Caleb Farley of Virginia Tech is a stud, but there are damage concerns. Patrick Surtain II from Alabama should be on the board for the Giants. If he is, he is difficult to pass up, but the Giants most likely will do so. It is extra probably they go for a corner later in the draft.
