Good morning, New York Giants fans!
A Draft Do-over for Every NFL Team over the Past 5 Years - Bleacher Report
New York Giants: CB Deandre Baker, No. 30 Overall 2019
The New York Giants gave up fourth- and fifth-round selections in 2019 to jump up seven spots and select Deandre Baker No. 30. He hardly justified that deal with his play as a rookie—starting 15 of 16 games while recording 61 tackles, eight passes defensed and no interceptions.
After Baker was arrested and charged with four counts of robbery with a firearm in May 2020, the Giants cut ties with him before the season began. However, all charges were later dropped. Regardless, New York basically gave up three picks to acquire a player who lasted just one season on the roster.
The Chiefs picked him up a few months later, and he appeared in just two games before breaking his femur.
Despite the injury, Baker re-signed with Kansas City.
With the signing of Kenny Golladay, the Giants are no longer in a true position of need at WR. However, with such talented players like the Alabama duo of Jaylen Waddle and DeVonta Smith likely to be available, would the Giants really pass on them?
A full mock draft was published by writer Dane Brugler, but Giants beat writer Dan Duggan doesn’t have a good feeling about it.
Yes, you read that right. While this is an impressive class of quarterbacks, the Giants have not made the slightest of moves that could indicate anything other than full confidence in Daniel Jones. It’s always possible, but it’s also highly unlikely.
