2019 Big Blue Draft-A-Thon: Giants select DT Khalen Saunders, On the clock for pick 132

New, comments

With their first fourth round selection, the Giants pick Western Illinois DT Khalen Saunders and are back on the clock

NCAA Football: Senior Bowl John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

The first pick of the fourth round for our Big Blue Draft-A-Thon is in the books, and Big Blue View has selected Khalen Saunders (iDL, Western Illinois) for the New York Giants at 109th overall.

Khalen Saunders is a small-school prospect but he could well be a steal at the beginning of the fourth round. He made waves for himself at the Senior Bowl, and not just for his ability to back handsprings at 320 pounds. He is both powerful and agile (exactly the kind of defensive tackle the Giants like) and gave big-school offensive linemen a serious run for their money. He also had one of the most touching moments when he made time to go home for the birth of his daughter, and still made sure to be back in Mobile to play in the Senior Bowl, rather than just stay home because the scouts left.

After trading Eli Apple to the New Orleans Saints for a fourth round pick, the Giants are back on the clock with the 132nd overall selection.

Because of how the board fell this time, with roughly 20 wide receivers and running backs, I ultimately DID decide to break my own rules and am listing BPA at positions of need for the Giants.

Note: It is possible that the poll will not appear on some platforms. If you can’t see it, state that in the subject line of your comment and make your vote in the body. Only vote once and only comments that state the poll wasn’t visible will be counted. For simplicity’s sake I will not be counting write-in votes. I don’t agree with all of TDN’s rankings either, but we’re going to keep this as organized as possible.

Draft wisely.
