The New York Giants chose to stick with Daniel Jones opting to instead select Malik Nabers with the sixth overall pick. The Giants likely won't be able to land a quarterback this round after the early run on quarterbacks meaning that the team will pursue the best player available for the remainder of this draft. Here are a few of the best players available for the Giants here on day two:

5. Chris Braswell - Edge Rusher - Alabama

While the Giants are pretty set at edge rusher with Brian Burns, Kayvon Thibodeaux, and Azeez Ojulari the Giants however, can't look past the talent of Chris Braswell. In his one season starting at Alabama, the ability Braswell showed was off the top.

After spending much of his Alabama career as a special teamer, Braswell stepped in as an edge rusher and recorded 8.5 sacks, cementing himself as one of the nation's top edge rushers. While his frame may be on the lighter side, Braswell's athleticism makes him a plug-and-play force at this level.

If the Giants draft Braswell they can deploy him either as a traditional defensive end or as a 3-4 outside linebacker. The Giants have performed their best when they've had a dominant pass rush and the addition of Braswell would be another step in the right direction.
