NFL Draft expert: 5 sleepers Giants should target

The Giants have eight picks over the final four rounds of the NFL Draft, which begins Thursday. 

That leaves them with plenty of opportunity to improve the depth of their football team.

NFL Draft expert Rich Cirminiello broke down five sleeper candidates the Giants should be targeting with their surplus of picks.

Ryan Finley, N.C. State, QB 

“In terms of second to fourth round quarterbacks, my favorite one by far is Ryan Finley out of N.C. State,” Cirminiello said. “Mature, outstanding leadership, 42 career starts, he’s 6-foot-4, throws with great accuracy, puts the ball where only his receiver can catch hit, reminds me a lot of Nick Foles.” 

Andy Isabella, UMASS, WR 

“I really like Andy Isabella in the slot. This is a kid who runs a 4.3 [second in the 40-yard dash],” Cirminiello said. “Not your traditional slot receiver. Over 100 catches last year. Tough, physical, undersized — I know the catch radius isn’t that great.” 

Trevon Wesco, West Virginia, TE 

“A battering ram of a blocker,” he said. “Tough, outstanding hands. Underutilized. … I think his trajectory is headed in the right direction. Developmental prospect, but I think he’ll get better throughout his career.” 

Ronheen Bingham, Arkansas State, DE 

“One-on-one last year, despite his limited size, was as good as any pass-rusher,” Cirminiello said. 

An MCL injury kept him out of combine workouts and has caused his stock to drop a little bit.

Brian Peavy, Iowa State, S 

“The way he competes — always plays bigger than his size — if you’re looking for a Day 3 corner, this kid is going to make someone’s roster,” Cirminiello said. “Could be in a nickel package early in his career, certainly will contribute on special teams.”

Peavy played last season with a torn pectoral. That toughness is inherent in the program that he came from, according to Cirminiello.

“These kinds of Matt Campbell type of players at Iowa State always play hard,” he said.
