TE – Evan Engram – Round 1
Eli Manning got another target at his disposal to complement the trio of Odell Beckham, Jr., Sterling Shepard and Brandon Marshall at wide receiver when the Giants drafted Engram with their first pick. He’s got the size at 6-foot-3, 235 pounds, the speed — he ran a 4.42 40-yard dash — and the versatility to thrive in both the red zone and down the seam.
DT – Dalvin Tomlinson – Round 2
After losing Johnathan Hankins, Tomlinson is a big body to plug in the middle of the defensive line. He didn’t get much press playing in a star-packed Alabama defense, but he is a great run defender — something the Giants will need if they want to stop Ezekiel Elliott for the next few years and beyond.
WR – Brandon Marshall – Free Agency
The veteran wide receiver didn’t have to move too far to find his new team. Marshall has yet to play for a club that has reached the playoffs; there’s a good chance that finally happens.
The Scout’s Take
“After fixing their defense prior to the 2016 season, the Giants tried to upgrade their so-so passing game in this offseason with additions of WR Brandon Marshall and rookie TE Evan Engram, but it may not matter if they don’t upgrade their OL. Until their run game gives them legitimate balance, and until they do a better job of converting on third down, they will be a dink-and-dunk pass offense that will be easy to defend.
Instead of depending on YAC from those short passes, they need to go to more vertical shots, and if they have a run game, Eli Manning will have play action available to him. Right now they will depend on an elite defense to dominate and get the ball back to the offense, and their margin of error is fairly small” – FanRag Sports’ Gary Horton.
