Good morning, New York Giants fans!

2021 NFL Draft: Ideal top two picks for every team - NFL.com

New York Giants

Round 1: No. 11 overall — Kwity Paye, edge, Michigan

Round 2: No. 42 overall — Levi Onwuzurike, DT, Washington

GM Dave Gettleman could continue to improve the team’s offense, as he did by signing receiver Kenny Golladay last month. But Paye’s power and agility on the edge would really bolster the team’s pass rush. He dropped down to 261 pounds at his pro day, showing he can play as a stand-up defender. Gettleman could be thinking receiver in Round 2, but he might not be able to pass up a defensive tackle that plays very much like Dalvin Tomlinson, who departed in free agency. Onwuzurike is only 290 pounds right now, but he could get bigger and still maintain his quickness off the ball.

An explosive athlete with all the tools needed to succeed, Kwity Paye has questions about production which have lead to some seeing him as a borderline top-10 talent while others see him going in the 20-30 range. Leevi Onwuzurike is another talented player, whom our own Chris Pflum said “combines excellent athleticism with a versatile frame, allowing him to play a variety of roles along the defensive front.” Do you agree with Reuter’s picks?
