2018 NFL Mock Draft - New York Giants Mock Draft
On this page, you will find all of our picks for the New York Giants in the 2018 NFL Mock Draft from Kevin Hanson.
Here are the picks in our 2018 NFL Mock Draft for the Giants:
*** PROJECTED MOCK TRADE: Buffalo trades both 2018 first-rounders (12th/22nd) and their 2019 first-rounder to Giants for the 2nd overall pick. ***
Round 1 - #12: Vita Vea, DT, Washington
By signing Nate Solder to massive free-agent contract, the Ereck Flowers experiment (on the left side) is now over. Misfit at left tackle and a major disappointment so far, Flowers still won't turn 24 until NFL Draft Eve so it may be too soon to call him a bust as he moves to the right (and his more natural) side. The offensive line remains a work in progress, so it's certainly possible that Gettleman considers an offensive lineman here, but I'm not sure that any available lineman aligns with Gettleman's board of best players available.
In my trade-back scenario, the Giants have three top-34 picks and I think they could address OL/RB needs with picks 22 and 34. At this point, Gettleman could view Vea, a freakishly athletic prospect for his size, as the best player available. Historically, Gettleman has used his fair share of high picks on the defensive line even when other needs appeared more obvious in Carolina.
Round 1 - #22: Will Hernandez, OG, UTEP
Upgrading the left tackle spot with Solder, Gettleman still has work to do on the offensive line. With Justin Pugh now in Arizona, the starting left guard is currently projected to Patrick Omameh, who struggled last year with Jacksonville and signed a one-year, $875,000 contract with the Giants.
Coming off a strong postseason (Senior Bowl and NFL Combine), Hernandez has started 49 consecutive games at left guard for the Miners and is unlikely to make it until Day 2. The Solder-Hernandez duo would solidify the Giants left side of the line for many years to come.
Round 2 - #34: Sony Michel, RB, Georgia
Round 3 - #66: Uchenna Nwosu, OLB, USC
Round 3 - #69: Duke Ejiofor, DE, Wake Forest
Round 4 - #108: Mike White, QB, Western Kentucky
Round 5 - #139: R.J. McIntosh, DL, Miami (FL)
