New York Giants 2022 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft, we will update our New York Giants Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the New York Giants from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Giants:

EDSFootball - Hanson (5/10)

7. Drake Jackson, EDGE, USC

The Giants got a nice value with Azeez Ojulari falling to the middle of Round 2 in the 2021 NFL Draft and add to their pass rush here with Jackson. While not as productive in a shortened 2020 campaign, Jackson led USC in sacks (5.5) and TFLs (11.5) as a true freshman in 2019 and has the traits to become a top-five pick.

12. Christian Harris, LB, Alabama

The Giants have made a number of upgrades to their pass rush (including Drake Jackson earlier in this 2022 NFL mock draft) and to their secondary, but they could use a difference maker in the middle of the their defense. Harris enters his junior season as a three-year starter and had 79 tackles, seven TFLs, 4.5 sacks and an interception in 2020.

Touchdown Wire - Schofield (5/7)

7. Christian Harris, LB, Alabama

Quarterback here is indeed tempting...

After all, we are entering the "year of no excuses" with New York Giants signal-caller Daniel Jones. The team added wide receiver Kenny Golladay in free agency as well as the shifty Kadarius Toney in the draft, and with Jones entering year three, he has to take a step forward.

Assuming he does, linebacker is the kind of position that Dave Gettleman could look to address early in the draft. Christian Harris is a former defensive back, and his athleticism makes him perhaps the ideal modern linebaker.

11. Zion Nelson, OT, Miami (FL)

Thanks to the draft-night trade between the Chicago Bears and the New York Giants, the deal that allowed the Bears to move up for Justin Fields, the Giants are now back on the clock. Again, quarterback could be in play here if Daniel Jones fails to take the kind of step forward Giants fans are hoping to see in 2021. Or, Dave Gettleman could package this pick and the other first-round selection to move up to the top of the board and add a new face at QB.

Assuming that the organization wishes to move forward with Jones, offensive tackle could be in play for the Giants. Andrew Thomas looked better down the stretch in the 2020 season, Matt Peart performed well for a third-round selection, and the organization also returns Nate Solder for the 2021 campaign after he opted-out in 2020. Still, if the unit does not perform as well as hoped, tackle could be in the mix next season. Nelson started all 13 games at left tackle for the Miami Hurricanes as a true freshman in 2019, and followed that up with another seven starts in 2020.

2021 NFL Power Rankings: New York Giants

Throughout the 2021 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the New York Giants rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a Week 4 roundup for the Giants in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 29

Maybe, just maybe, the Giants have their answer with Daniel Jones. The biggest problem early in his career has been the turnovers. Well, he has one in three games this season. And Jones has competed pretty well early this year despite playing behind a rough offensive line that has contributed to him being pressured on 38.4% of his dropbacks, the fourth most in the league, per NFL Next Gen Stats. Jones might have only three touchdown passes, but he also has run for two others and had a third called back. It has been a promising start to the season for the third-year quarterback. -- Jordan Raanan

NFL.com -- Rank: 30

You cannot let the Falcons come into your building and beat you on Eli Manning Day. It just can't happen -- and Joe Judge is going to start feeling some heat if he can't start producing some better results. New York is all sorts of beat up right now -- Sterling Shepherd and Darius Slayton both exited with hamstring injuries on Sunday, while linebacker Blake Martinez tore his ACL -- but the Giants let a deeply flawed Falcons team steal a road win by failing to make the big play in the fourth quarter. (I'm looking at you, Adoree' Jackson.) An 0-3 start doesn't spell certain doom in the middling NFC East, but the Giants are a team trending in the wrong direction.
