70th Overall Pick: Kris Jenkins, DT, Michigan
The Giants will need to add some talent on the defensive line as they traded away Leonard Williams and may lose a few more pieces to salary cap cuts and free agency.
The Giants may look to grab Kris Jenkins, the son of former New York Jet Kris Jenkins, to fill that need. Jenkins was a solid defensive lineman on an incredible Michigan defense. He had his best season yet in 2023 being named a Second-Team All-American due to a 37 tackle season with 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and an interception.
For a defensive tackle, Jenkins is incredibly explosive and quick twitched which will make him a great player in the NFL.
Playing alongside an All-Pro in Dexter Lawrence would allow for Jenkins to shine early on in his NFL Career and could be a key piece of the Giants' defense in the years to come.
We've seen free-agent interior lineman signings like Rakeem Nunez-Roches and Justin Ellis not pan out which should push the Giants to look for a long-term fix.
107th Overall Pick: Braelon Allen, RB, Wisconsin
The Giants may also lose Saquon Barkley in free agency after an off-season filled with contract negotiations and associated drama.
Regardless of whether Barkley goes or not, they should look to add a running back in the draft as injury insurance while also setting the team up for the future.
Braelon Allen will enter the NFL Draft at just 20 years old due to reclassifying out of high school which is a massive positive with less miles on Allen's legs.
The three-time Second-Team All-Big Ten back will be a perfect addition for a team like the New York Giants.
At 6'2 245 pounds he has a massive frame that will be perfect for a massive workload like he may receive in the NFL. The size and strength of Allen allow him to shrug off tackles resulting in big gains. The only downside to Allen's game is his speed as he won't blow anyone away at the combine. Allen can also be a capable pass catcher, but his route tree was limited at Wisconsin.
