For those who want an edge rusher, you’re good. For those who want a large receiver, you’re good. For those who want an offensive sort out, you’re good in case you’re choosing excessive. For those who want a quarterback, you’re screwed.
For those who’re Joe Schoen and Joe Douglas, that is your time to convey the Giants and Jets, respectively, again to relevance. Eight groups personal a pair of first-round picks, and the Giants and Jets are two of them. And the one two with a pair within the prime 10 … barring a commerce down.
Douglas additionally possesses the thirty fifth and thirty eighth picks, so that is his finest likelihood to shut the somewhat massive hole on the remainder of the division, beginning with the Josh Allen Payments.

5. New York Giants
Ikem “Ickey” Ekwonu, OT, N.C. State
Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley would choose up this kneecap-biter in a limo if GM Joe Schoen will get LT Andrew Thomas a bookend. See? Offensive traces could be fastened, in any case.
6. Carolina Panthers
Kayvon Thibodeaux, DE/OLB, Oregon
Sam Darnold pinky-swears he’s the very best man for the job, and though proprietor David Tepper and coach Matt Rhule don’t purchase it, they cross on a quarterback as a result of Haason Reddick has taken his 11 sacks to Philadelphia and Brian Burns will want a bookend cross rusher.
7. New York Giants

Invoice Belichick, with Dont’a Hightower and Jamie Collins seemingly out of the image, infuses much-needed youth with a flexible, full three-down playmaker.
22. Inexperienced Bay Packers

Not the blazer that Aaron Rodgers and coach Matt LaFleur want and wish, however someone has to switch Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, so a giant, 6-foot-2, 225-pound goal who may remind cheeseheads of Deebo Samuel Lite will do.
23. Arizona Cardinals
Devonte Wyatt, DT, Georgia
