2020 NFL Draft: Ideal top two picks for all 32 teams -

I’m not sure I would like this duo. Becton I would be fine with. Weaver? Not so much.

Round 1: No. 4 overall -- Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville

Round 2: No. 36 -- Curtis Weaver, edge rusher, Boise State

The Giants are almost certainly going to address the right tackle spot early in the draft, the question is, with whom? Becton, a massive human with very light feet, played both sides of the line at Louisville when the team switched the line's strong and weak formations. If Lamar Jackson was still the Cardinals' quarterback, we would have been talking about Becton all season long. Signing free agent Kyler Fackrell builds edge rusher depth, but GM Dave Gettleman will be looking for more in this draft. If Weaver is healthy enough to return to his 2018 form, he'll be a force on the outside.
