  • Recently the New York Giants have been flying a bit under the radar (at least nationally) given the scuttlebutt surrounding the New York Jets. But the Giants have had as interesting and eventful an off-season as any NFL team in the league. The 2019 NFL Draft was no different. General Manager Dave Gettleman spent a lot of time in front of microphones explaining and rationalizing his decisions even when unsolicited. It all came to ahead after the New York Giants drafted their quarterback of choice Daniel Jones out of Duke. While Couch Potato GM thought Dwayne Haskins of Ohio State would have been a better choice, Jones has some redeeming qualities necessary to have sustainable success at the NFL level. He will serve as under-study to Eli Manning at least on opening Sunday. With their 2nd first round pick the Giants selected defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence from Clemson. Lawrence has rare athleticism for a man his size and possesses underrated pass rushing skills. His presence in the middle of the defense should make everyone's life easier. In a bit of a surprise move the Giants traded up into the bottom of the first round to select cornerback Deandre Baker from Georgia. Couch Potato GM believes that this shrewd move was the best of the New York Giants draft picks in 2019. On Day 2 of the 2019 NFL Draft the Giants added edge defender Oshane Ximines from Old Dominion to help bolster an anemic pass rush. Gettleman than turned six 7th round picks into: CB Julian Love (Notre Dame), LB Ryan Connelly (Wisconsin), WR Darius Slayton (Auburn), CB Corey Ballentine (Washburn), OT George Asafo-Adjei, and DT Chris Slayton (Syracuse). Love and Ballentine offer great value in the 4th and 6th round respectively with intriguing press coverage abilities. Connelly isn't the twitchy athlete currently en vogue at the 2nd level of the defense but his consistency is exactly what the G-Men need in their linebacking corps. Giants 2019 draft picks. Darius Slayton's ability to stretch the defense could very well land him on the 53-man roster. Couch Potato General Manager. New York Giants Draft Recap 2019. CPGM.
