The New York Giants are at the moment slated to pick out eleventh total within the 2021 NFL draft, which is probably going too far all the way down to nab Oregon offensive lineman Penei Sewell.
Or is it?
Yeah, it most likely is, however that doesn’t essentially imply the Giants wouldn’t entertain buying and selling up if Sewell one way or the other slips a bit of nearer to their choose than anticipated. And that’s why the Giants have held a number of last-second digital conferences with Sewell.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler and Dan Graziano lately referred to as the Giants a “sneaky contender” for Sewell if he drops to round No. 8.
If Sewell one way or the other slips previous Cincinnati at No. 5, a possible commerce up comes into play.
The expectation, at the very least proper now, is his ground is No. 8. The Giants (No. 11) are a sneaky contender right here. We’re listening to they’ve completed a ton of legwork on Sewell, together with last-minute digital calls.
The Giants don’t have many belongings to work with — they maintain simply six whole picks within the draft — so a transfer up can be pricey. Nonetheless, if Sewell tops their draft board and they’re inside putting distance, it might make sense.
Offensive line is arguably the group’s largest space of want and lots of view Sewell as the most effective obtainable on the place. Nonetheless, there are additionally groups on the market who’ve a better grade on Northwestern offensive lineman Rashawn Slater, who can also be a chance for the Giants.
