After finishing 4-12, the New York Giants pick fourth overall in the 2020 draft. Who will Big Blue select? We compiled 35 different mock drafts to get a consensus.
This our final NFL mock draft compilation of 2020. Empire Writes Back compiled data from various mock drafts in cyberspace. Rather than our readers search the all over the internet for who the New York Giants will pick, EWB brings you our exhaustive consensus.
NFL teams are doing their final player background checks and interviews for what will be the most interesting drafts in recent times. Travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically hampered the scouting process. After the Combine in March, teams, and players haven’t met in person, and there were no Pro Days.
All meetings with prospective players have been done virtually; the same way this draft will be conducted over the weekend. Due to the lack of ANYTHING happening in the sports world, fans have been hyper-focused on the draft. Any tidbit or morsel will do.
We went the extra mile this time around, 35 different mock drafts were used for the 6.0 version of the New York Giants Mock Draft Compilation. Some of the mocks used have changed from version to version, but they are credible. Sources for this version include Walter Football, Pro Football Focus, ESPN – Mel Kiper, NFL.com, NBC Sports, CBS Sports, Fox Sports, New York Post, New York Daily News, nj.com, Tankathon, USA Today Draftwire, Athalon, Draftsite.com, San Diego Tribune, Baltimore Sun, Toronto Sun, Draft Diamonds, Washington Post, Draft Geek, The Draft Network, and The Athletic.
After a disappointing 4-12 season, Big Blue “earned” the fourth overall draft pick. They scored the 18th most points (341) and allowed the third most (451). With a record that poor, and the stats to prove it, there are plenty of holes to fill on the roster. Among the positions in the greatest need of upgrade are offensive tackle, edge rusher, cornerback, safety, center, and probably a long snapper.
New York Giants General Manager Dave Gettleman has a chance at redemption after some very questionable decisions last year.
