During this year’s NFL Draft, the New York Giants will try to address any one of their several needs. The most of the Giants’ troubles during their 6-11 season were arguably on the offensive end of the ball, despite the fact that their problems were multifaceted. The consensus is that New York will most likely select an offensive player with their first-round choice.

That guy, according to Chris Trapasso of CBS Sports, is quarterback Drake Maye of North Carolina, who he believes may be selected by the Giants at number six. But others wonder if it was a smart move for the Giants to select a quarterback at No. 6 when they need offensive line and wide out help more.

The Giants, who have one of the weakest offensive lines in the league and allowed the second-most sacks in league history last year, would be able to start rebuilding their line with the addition of a top lineman. With three offensive linemen with high upside potential working together under new offensive line coach Carmen Bricillo—who had a history of getting the most out of offensive linemen while coaching the Las Vegas Raiders—the Giants would have a strong offensive line core if they could extend Evan Neal’s production.

Daniel Jones, or whomever the Giants ultimately select to play quarterback, would be better protected if the team selected an offensive lineman in the first round. If it’s Jones—general manager Joe Schoen has stated that if Jones is healthy, that’s the expectation—the Giants will have fixed a team that hasn’t been reliable in years, which is something they should have done years ago.

Others, however, think that in order to strengthen a receiving group that is among the worst in the league, the Giants should be more inclined toward a WR1, something they haven’t had since Odell Beckham Jr. There isn’t a receiver on the Giants’ roster right now that many league defenses would find challenging to slow down. Since Beckham in 2018, the Giants have not had a receiver conclude a season with more than 1,000 yards.
