With their second pick in Round 3 of the 2022 NFL Draft, the 81st overall selection, the New York Giants chose LSU cornerback Cordale Flott.

Flott is a 6-foot-½-inch, 175-pound slot cornerback.

Dane Brugler of The Athletic had this to say in his draft guide:

He played across the secondary in college, including outside corner, in the box and as a split-safety, but he spent most of his time in the slot, where produced several quality tapes as a junior. Flott is a lean-framed corner with the foot speed, movement and mentality of a classic man-to-man corner. Despite limited busted coverage reps on film, he lacks ideal burst and acceleration out of his transitions and he would benefit from more plays on the football (never had more than four pass breakups in a season in college). Overall, Flott has slick hips to turn and run on command with inside-outside versatility, but he trusts his athleticism more than his technique with below average size and questionable playmaking instincts.
