New York Giants: 5 Potential Players The Giants Can Add On Day 2

With their first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the New York Giants selected offensive lineman Ereck Flowers from Miami (FL). That selection filled a major need for the Giants, as they needed to continue improving along the offensive line, adding youth and upside to what had become an aged, decrepit unit the past couple of seasons. Flowers is the third offensive lineman the Giants have selected with one of their first two picks the last three years, as they have made a concerted effort to improving that unit.

With the offensive line being addressed, look for the Giants to continue addressing other needs that they have on the roster. The Giants have a gaping hole in their secondary, specifically at safety where veterans Antrel Rolle, Stevie Brown and Quintin Demps have all moved on. Left is second year Nat Behre and third year Cooper Taylor, who have combined for zero starts in the NFL. That is an area of need, and something the Giants will surely look to address on Day 2. Recently signed Josh Gordy has a legitimate shot at making this roster as the most experienced safety the Giants have.

Another area the Giants will look to add production is in the pass rushing department. Other than Jason Pierre-Paul, the Giants have no proven pass rusher. They are still hoping that 2013 third round pick Damontre Moore can make the next step in his progression, and also signed JPP’s college teammate George Selvie to help on the outside. It isn’t the most glaring need, but if anything happens Pierre-Paul, the Giants would have arguably the worst pass rush in the NFL and have to protect against that.

A quiet need they could address if a player they like falls is to cornerback. Last season the Giants suffered an insurmountable number of injuries to the secondary, as Prince Amukamara missed half the season and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie battled injuries all season. Beyond those two, veteran Trumaine McBride is also recovering from an injury, and former third round pick Jayron Hosley has not lived up to expectations. The Giants need to cover themselves as the depth behind Amukamara and Rodgers-Cromartie isn’t overly strong, so if a cornerback falls into their lap they could pounce.

With all of those areas of need, the Giants could find some good value and help in Rounds 2 and 3 of the draft tonight. Here are five players that the Giants could target.
