Redrafting New York Giants' 2013 Draft

Jerry Reese would have handled the 2013 draft a lot differently if he knew what he knows now.

Redoing the New York Giants' 2013 draft is the definition of “hindsight is 20/20”. It is also classic second-guessing.

Most importantly, though, it’s just plain fun.

Before we get started let's lay down the ground rules. First, I am using the original picks Big Blue had entering last April’s draft. Therefore, the Ryan Nassib trade that altered some of the Giants selections will be erased (I bet some of you would like to nix that trade for real but that’s another conversation all together). More on how this will affect the Giants' draft coming up in a few slides.

Second, the redraft is based mainly on 2013 performance, and how it would have not only helped the Giants last season, but also provided legitimate hope that the newly drafted player could be a mainstay with the organization for years to come. You may think Johnathan Hankins is going to be an All-Pro defensive tackle someday, but the reality is he still has a lot to prove after playing and contributing sparingly last year.

Finally, what transpired in 2013 for New York will be taken into account. For example, we now know that the Giants had major issues on their offensive line so that area will be addressed more seriously than it was when the draft actually happened.

So after all that buildup let’s take a look at their first-round pick, which is the only one of the eight picks that won’t be changed.
