Giants in line for No. 7 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft
The New York Giants won their third game in four tries on Sunday, upsetting the Chicago Bears 30-27 in overtime to improve to 4-8 on the season. After starting the season 1-7, Big Blue has been on a roll since their Week 9 bye week. With winning games comes a lower pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. At one point this season the Giants were in control of the No. 1 selection in the 2019 NFL Draft, but that has now dropped to No. 7.
Every week, Tankathon.com comes out with the 2019 NFL Draft Power Rankings. Following their win over the Bears, the Giants have the 11th-highest draft value, this is five spots lower than last week. Their draft value, using the standard trade chart, is currently 2,274.4. The No. 1 team on the list is the Oakland Raiders, who have a draft value of 5,109.4. Below is a look at the Top 15 teams on the list.
Pro Football Focus staff writer Michael Renner released his 2019 NFL Mock Draft on Monday. Renner has the Giants selecting Houston defensive lineman Ed Oliver with the No. 7 selection in the draft. Here is his explanation for the pick.
Odds are Oliver’s potential is still going to win out with NFL GMs. You simply can’t teach 280-plus pound men to move the way he does. That being said, he still has a ways to go as a pass-rusher. His 88.4 pass-rushing grade is only fifth in the country among interior players despite facing lesser competition in the AAC.
