New York Giants’ General Manager, Dave Gettleman, has received hate and praise over the past three years regarding the draft. The fans loved when he drafted Saquon Barkley but his other draft picks did not go over as well. If Gettleman wants to gain support from the eager-to-win New York Giants fans, find out how he can in this Giants Mock Draft:

Giants Mock Draft: Six 2021 Picks

Round 1 Pick 11: Kyle Pitts, Tight End

The Florida tight end (TE) is more than just that: Kyle Pitts is a registered weapon. At 6’6” and 241 lbs, Pitts is the size of Calvin Johnson Jr. and can be used all over the field. Pitts took snaps at outside receiver, slot, and in-line tight end. Offensive Coordinator, Jason Garrett, could place him anywhere on the field and let Pitts go to work. The only potential problem with drafting Pitts is the Evan Engram situation. The Pro-Bowl tight end has had drop issues and is in the final year of his rookie contract. However, this may not be a concern for the Giants as Garrett calls a lot of two tight-end personnel.

Round 2 Pick 42: Alex Leatherwood, Offensive Lineman

Due to the cap situation, the Giants are currently in, cuts could be made to both tackle (Nate Solder) and guard (Kevin Zeitler). Those cuts would leave the Giants needing a lineman, like Alabama’s Alex Leatherwood. At the Senior Bowl, Alex Leatherwood came in at 6’5” 312 lbs with an 85-inch wingspan which is critically important at the NFL level. The potential downside with Leatherwood, he struggles against fast and flexible pass rushers. However, he could also start at guard immediately, where that would not be as much of an issue.

Round 3 Pick 76: Tylan Wallace, Wide Receiver

Tylan Wallace is the most underrated wide receiver in this draft class. Drafting Wallace at pick 75 would be a dream for New York. Wallace is great at catching the ball without letting the ball come into his chest, one of the skills that translate best to the NFL. Some fans would like a receiver earlier like Jaylen Waddle or Ja’marr Chase. But the combo of Pitts and Wallace is the best value for the Giants.

Round 4 Pick 107: Tre Brown, Cornerback

The only cornerback to make problems for Tylan Wallace was Tre Brown. The Giants are in desperate need of a second cornerback to pair with James Bradberry. Brown, coming in at 5’9” 188lbs, has all the skills a number two corner needs and can use the opportunity to learn from Bradberry. If the Giants get Brown, Darney Holmes can stay in the slot cornerback position where he had success in his rookie year. Defensive coordinator Patrick Graham’s unit of defensive backs will be complete and will thrive the longer they are together.

Round 6 Pick 172: Jaret Patterson, Running Back

It is likely that after a career year in the absence of Saquon Barkley, Wayne Gallman is leaving the Giants. So the Giants look to the Buffalo prospect, Jaret Patterson. Patterson, who plays like a video game, had 8 TDs and 409 yards in a single game this year. While this is not what the Giants would need from Patterson, he would be very valuable in taking pressure in playing all snaps off Barkley, who is coming off an ACL Tear.

Round 6 Pick 177: Chauncey Golston, Edge Rusher

Gettleman loves his defensive guys in the later rounds. In his past three drafts with the Giants, he chose defensive players with five of his six picks. Assuming this trend continues, Golston would be a great pick. Golston is 6’4” 268 lbs; in 2020, he averaged almost a sack per game. The value that Golston would bring isn’t that of a first-round pick, but he would have a real shot to make a name for himself with the Giants.
