2015 NFL Draft Order - Giants To Pick Ninth Overall

New, comments

The 2014 season is over for the Giants, but the 2015 draft season is just beginning.

For the first time since 2004 the New York Giants will be picking in the top-10 of the NFL Draft.

That year the Giants drafted Philip Rivers fourth overall before trading him -- along with several picks -- to the San Diego Chargers for Eli Manning.

The Giants have done well when selecting in the top half of the draft. They have come away with Eli Manning (2004), Corey Webster (2005, second round), Jason Pierre-Paul (2010) and Odell Beckham (2014).

Picking in this slot, the Giants could potentially find themselves with one of the "elite" prospects falling into their laps. At this point in the draft process, the elite prospects are Leonard Williams (DL, USC), Randy Gregory (DE/OLB, Nebraska), Shane Ray (DE/OLB, Missouri), and Amari Cooper (WR, Alabama). Of course, they could also draft somebody who isn't on our radar at all right now such as JPP, Prince Amukamara, Justin Pugh, or Odell Beckham.

Of course, we still have any potential coaching changes and free agency to get through before the draft gets here. Draft boards and team needs can, and likely will, change wildly before the 2015 draft gets here.

As of this writing, the final order looks like this:
