It was a shocker when the New York Giants traded back in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. It was the first time the team had traded back in over 20 years. The team wouldn’t wait another 20 years to trade back again — they wouldn’t even wait a full 24 hours.

Once the Giants were on the clock at 42nd overall in the second round, it was quickly announced that they would be trading back again, this time with the Miami Dolphins at 50th overall. There the Giants selected Georgia EDGE Azeez Ojulari, hopefully adding some much-needed pass rush to their defense.

Ojulari was predicted to be a top-20 prospect, with many stating that he would have been a perfectly fine pick at 11th overall. But then he tumbled past the 11th pick, then the 20th, then the 42nd, until the Giants finally stopped his fall at 50th overall. What caused his fall, and what kind of player could he be for the Giants in 2021?
