While Adoree' Jackson awaits a free agent contract, the Giants have a hole at cornerback opposite Deontae Banks. The Giants land a player here in Josh Newton that entered the season that entered the year as a first-round pick but struggled in his 2023 campaign.

At 6 feet and 190 pounds, Newton has the ideal frame for an NFL cornerback and could become a mainstay in the Giants secondary for years to come.

In selecting Newton the Giants would be betting he could return to his 2022 form, where he defended 12 passes with three interceptions and allowed a passer rating of 56.4.

166th Overall Pick - Kenny Logan Jr - Safety

The Giants still have a significant need at safety after allowing Xavier McKinney to leave for the Packers in Free Agency. The team has potential replacements in Dane Belton and Jalen Mills however, the secondary could use more talent and youth.

The Giants use this pick to land Kansas Safety Kenny Logan Jr who can become a long-term piece in the New York secondary.

The Jayhawks safety has put up four seasons of solid production at the college level with some of his best coming in 2023 with 95 tackles, a forced fumble, and an interception. The experience shows in Logan's instincts as a fast twitch instinctive player that has become an impressive part of his game.

Joe Schoen showed this offseason that he'd prefer low-cost fixes to non-priority positions when letting Saquon Barkley and Xavier McKinney walk. Selecting a safety on day three allows the Giants the potential of having a long-term fix on a low-cost deal as they transition towards the future.

183rd Overall Pick - Javion Cohen - Guard

While the Giants spent big on guards this off-season in Jermaine Eluemunor and Jon Runyan Jr, long term the team would prefer not paying guards significant money. Here the Giants add a project player in Javion Cohen as a potential long-term piece.

As a former five-star recruit Cohen, has all of the talent in the world playing at Miami and Alabama in college.

Cohen at 6-foot-4 and 320 pounds is an absolute monster who will become a mauler in the rushing attack.

The Giants picked long-term project pieces in Marcus McKethan and Josh Ezeudu with neither panning out; here, the Giants get to reset the rookie contract period with Cohen.
