The 5-11 New York Giants will pick sixth in the 2019 NFL Draft. The top 10 draft order is as follows:

  1. Arizona Cardinals (3-13) .527
  2. San Francisco 49ers (4-12) .504
  3. New York Jets (4-12) .506
  4. Oakland Raiders (4-12) .547
  5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-11) .523
  6. New York Giants (5-11) .527
  7. Jacksonville Jaguars (5-11) .549
  8. Detroit Lions (6-10) .504
  9. Buffalo Bills (6-10) .523
  10. Denver Broncos (6-10) .523

The Giants had the chance to move into the top five had the Oakland Raiders managed to win against the Kansas City Chiefs, but that did not happen. Even so, the Giants could have a number of intriguing options picking at sixth overall.

They could address their pass rush with a player like Ed Oliver (DT, Houston), Clellin Ferrell (EDGE, Clemson), Josh Allen (EDGE/OLB, Kentucky), Brian Burns (EDGE, Florida State), or Jachai Polite (EDGE, Florida).

They could also help their secondary with one of Deionte Thompson (FS, Alabama), Greedy Williams (CB, LSU), or Byron Murphy (CB, Washington).

They could also justify the pick of Jonah Williams (OT, Alabama), potentially address their quarterback position with Dwayne Haskins (QB, Ohio State) or Daniel Jones (QB, Duke) if either declares. They could, conceivably, trade down and acquire more picks — though Dave Gettleman has never done so and has historically stuck to his draft board regardless of team need or positional depth.

With a number of options and nearly as many holes on their roster, this draft season is going to be another interesting one for the Giants.
