With the seventh pick of the seventh round in the 2020 NFL Draft, the New York Giants select Trey Adams, offensive tackle, University of Washington Huskies.
An eye test winner, Trey Adams is going to be a good NFL tackle. On some draft boards, he is predicted to go much higher, so getting him 221st overall is a steal. Two years ago, Adams looked like he was first-round material but suffered some injury setbacks in his junior and senior seasons. A year from now, the Giants can afford to part ways with Nate Solder. Wirfs then moves to the left side and Adams can step in as the right tackle.
With the 30th pick of the seventh round in the 2020 NFL Draft, the New York Giants select Michael Warren II, running back, University of Cincinnati Bearcats.
Warren is a classic inside power rusher who batters defenders with his 5-9, 230-pound frame. For those who like smashmouth football, “The Truck” won’t disappoint. He produced on the ground for UC the past two seasons to the tune of 2,694 and 33 touchdowns in 26 games. This is a player who gets the one-yard when his team needs him to the most.
"While he lacks the burst to consistently gain yards outside the tackle box, he should be able to keep doing his thing between the tackles thanks to vision, footwork, balance, and power. – Lance Zierlein, NFL.com"
With the 32nd pick of the seventh round in the 2020 NFL Draft, the New York Giants select Nate Stanley, quarterback, University of Iowa Hawkeyes.
Gettleman signed Colt McCoy to back up Daniel Jones this year. Alex Tanney is still around as well. Both are over 32-years-old and McCoy will be 34 when the season starts. It’s time to start grooming a younger quarterback to be Jones’ wingman in the position meetings.

A “money” passer in his three seasons as Iowa’s starting quarterback, Stanley finished his collegiate career with an almost three-to-one touchdown to interception ratio (68-23). Over that time, he played in 39 games and racked up 8,235 passing yards.
He possesses an NFL arm and the necessary football IQ to go with it. To succeed at the next level, Stanley will have to work on his check-downs. That was a concern about him in college. Another area of improvement is putting the ball where his receiver can catch it without taking a big hit. He doesn’t have to be the number two QB this year, but its a role Stanley can grow into for 2021.
This would be a “dream” draft for the New York Giants. In many of these trades, I tried to move up (even if it was for only a few spots) in the later rounds to add better depth to the team.
