As component of The Post’s 2021 NFL Draft preview, we look at what the Giants could possibly do at every situation. Thursday: Cornerback.
Do the Giants have ample cornerbacks? Possibly, if almost everything goes in accordance to plan with the players they have on their roster, which pretty much hardly ever happens. Could they take a cornerback superior in this NFL draft — as higher as the No. 11-in general select? That is surely a chance, whilst it is a lot more possible they go in a different way in the very first round.
Two yrs in the past, the Giants traded up into the very first round to choose DeAndre Baker out of Ga with the No. 30-all round select. That turned out to be a horrible decide, thinking of Baker had a undesirable rookie yr and was produced just after he was hit with really serious legal rates in Florida (the charges were being dropped following the Giants let him go). Using Sam Beal in the 2018 supplemental draft has also, so significantly, amounted to practically nothing. Beal’s NFL résumé incorporates only six online games performed in 3 seasons he opted out in 2020.
These misses designed it vital the Giants open the vault in 2020 to signal James Bradberry and do it all over again in 2021 to indicator Adoree’ Jackson. Bradberry was large in his Giants debut season. Jackson will be an fast starter. They also have Darnay Holmes as a slot corner entering his second NFL year, as perfectly as Isaac Yiadom, who began 10 online games in 2020, as the Giants struggled to uncover an exterior corner to use with Bradberry.
Caleb Farley of Virginia Tech is a stud, but there are harm worries. Patrick Surtain II from Alabama really should be on the board for the Giants. If he is, he is rough to go up, but the Giants most likely will do so. It is a lot more most likely they go for a corner afterwards in the draft.
