Regrading the 2021 NFL Draft classes: Dallas Cowboys, Miami Dolphins among biggest risers | NFL Draft | PFF

The Giants’ grade goes unchanged:

R1 (20): WR Kadarius Toney, Florida
R2 (50): EDGE Azeez Ojulari, Georgia
R3 (71): CB Aaron Robinson, UCF
R4 (116): EDGE Elerson Smith, Northern Iowa
R6 (196): RB Gary Brightwell, Arizona
R6 (201): CB Rodarius Williams, Oklahoma State

Initial Draft Grade: B+
1-year Re-Grade: B+

The trade the Giants executed to get a top-10 pick in this year’s draft has to be factored in here. That netted them Evan Neal, which should quell the sting of passing on Rashawn Slater. From a talent perspective, Toney looked like he could make this class an A-plus when on the field. Unfortunately, he was hurt for most of the year and the new staff is already reportedly shopping him.
