2022 NFL Draft: Best available prospects for Giants on Day 3

What surprises will Joe Schoen have in store on Day 3?

Syndication: The Record Danielle Parhizkaran/ / USA TODAY NETWORK

The third day of the 2022 NFL Draft is here, and the New York Giants look to be very active in the fourth and fifth rounds.

The Giants come into today with six picks across the fourth, fifth, and sixth rounds. Those are:

Fourth round: 112 and 114 overall (picks 7 and 9)
Fifth round: 146, 147, and 173 overall (picks 3, 4, and 30)
Sixth round: 182

The Giants also come into the third day with a number of needs yet to fill. The team is still looking for help at tight end, safety, linebacker, as well as potentially more depth at cornerback, offensive line, and wide receiver. The Giants have also done a lot of work at the running back position, and we could see a runner selected as well.

After a Day 2 that defied expectation, nobody seems to know who the Giants will target, or how they have even graded this draft class. That said, here’s a list of the players most commonly believed to be the best still on the board.
