Ready or not—and I know you’re more than ready at this point—the NFL draft is finally here.

It promises to be an intriguing three days filled with surprises and disappointments.

What can we expect? Well, based on how the offseason has gone, New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese has been anything but predictable in his quest to remake a 7-9 roster into a more competitive unit.

As for the draft itself, my gut feeling is that after putting such a heavy emphasis on the defensive side of the ball, the Giants are going to stack the draft depth in favor of the offense.

I also wouldn’t be stunned if there were a trade, nor would I be surprised if the Giants take a player who initially might not appear to be a fit for the team, but whose value proves to be too hard to pass up.

The wild card in the mix is new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, who thus far has only spoken to reporters back in late February and who provided very few clues as to the type of players he hoped to acquire for his new offense. 

Instead, he’s been busy working on developing his new offensive playbook, which the team has begun installing. Hell make tweaks as the front office brings in new players, and hell likely have a significant say regarding the outcome of several good competitions that are shaping up for the summer.  

As we count down the hours to the Giants going on the clock, heres everything you need to know about the decisions theyll have to make at No. 12—what theyve done so far and how that could potentially impact what theyre going to do.
