After last offseason’s spending spree transformed their defense, the Giants are in no cap situation to make another such run in 2021. They are currently $11 million over the cap and made their free agency “play” already by tagging defensive tackle Leonard Williams.

Now, the team has to provide Daniel Jones enough help to prove — or disprove — that he’s the franchise guy. The Giants will be in luck at Pick No. 11, as it’s a near certainty that at least one of the top four receiving options — Florida’s Kyle Pitts, LSU’s Ja’Marr Chase, Alabama’s Jaylen Waddle and Alabama’s DeVonta Smith — will be on the board. Any will do.

Day 2 will be crucial, though, as the Giants’ second-to-last ranked offensive line may get even worse if guard Kevin Zeitler ends up a cap casualty. If that’s the case, I’d expect Ohio State guard Wyatt Davis to be the pick at the top of Round 2 with his plug-and-play ability.
