The New York Giants had a long time to wait between their second pick at 36th overall and their third pick at 99th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft, but only 11 picks will elapse until the Giants are on the clock again at No. 110 overall on Saturday.

Who will the Giants pick at the top of the fourth round? Let’s take a look at some of the best players who will still be available when the draft picks back up with the fourth round at noon.

Offensive options

Tyler Biadasz (C, Wisconsin) - A year ago Biadasz was heralded as a first-round pick as a red-shirt sophomore. He was advised to return to school after getting a second-round grade from the Draft Advisory Board, but that extra year hurt his draft stock. Biadasz dealt with an injury in 2019 and was on the ground too often, but he is a smart and experienced center with great size and good athleticism. [Prospect Profile]

Donovan Peoples-Jones (WR, Michigan) - Peoples-Jones is an interesting prospect. He was inconsistent and suffered inconsistent play at Michigan, which makes getting a read on him difficult. Peoples-Jones has an explosive lower body and enough speed to be a vertical threat, as well as good hands and play strength. He is a stout blocker on the perimeter and that could appeal to the Giants if they want to lean on running the football. [Prospect Profile]

Collin Johnson (WR, Texas) - Speaking of big receivers, Collin Johnson is one of the biggest of the bunch. He is a massive receiver with an uncommon ability to sink his hips and move quickly in a short area. Johnson profiles as more of a possession receiver than a true “X” receiver, but he has the ability to make contested catches and the Giants could like his blocking ability as well.

Defensive options

Curtis Weaver (EDGE, Boise State) - The Giants need a pass rush, and Weaver was one of the best in the country in 2019. He finished second in the FBS with 13.0 solo sacks and was consistently disruptive behind the line of scrimmage. Weaver has a short, stocky build and limited fluidity, but quick feet and an advanced ability to rush with a plan. He should be a contributor as a rotational rusher out of a two or three-point stance. [Prospect Profile]

Alton Robinson (EDGE, Syracuse) - Robinson has intriguing athleticism and was productive in 2018, but took a step back in 2019. The former transfer has 34 tackles for a loss in 34 starts, thanks to an explosive first step and impressive play strength. Robinson looks like a rotational player right now, but has athletic upside if he can develop a speed move to counter his power. [Prospect Profile]

Troy Dye (LB, Oregon) - Long, lean, rangy, athletic, and versatile, Troy Dye is custom-built to be a linebacker in the modern NFL. Dye was a consistently productive player for the Ducks, making plays in the run game, in pass defense, and as a blitzer. He also showed good competitive toughness, playing his final season at Oregon with a torn meniscus and a fractured thumb. Dye has starting potential in a scheme that caters to a modern off-ball linebacker. [Prospect Profile]

Akeem Davis-Gaither (LB, Appalachian State) - Davis-Gaither is small for an NFL linebacker at 6-foot-1, 220 pounds, but he is a true playmaker. His senior season he racked up 104 tackles, 14.5 for a loss (team-high), 5 sacks, 8 passes defensed, 1 interception, and a blocked kick. Davis-Gaither is instinctive and aggressive, and a tough player to keep blocked. He is a natural athlete and a fluid mover, and could be a favorite for a defense which can use a “tweener.”
