Giants select OL Kenyon Green, QB Desmond Ridder in PFN’s 2022 mock

Is it too early for a 2022 NFL mock draft? Properly… sure, however right here we’re anyway, masking a mock for a draft that’s nearly a full 12 months away.

Pro Football Network just lately launched their newest 2022 mock draft and so they have the New York Giants holding and utilizing each of their first-round picks (the second acquired in a draft day commerce with the Chicago Bears).

With their first decide, PFN has the Giants deciding on Texas A&M guard Kenyon Inexperienced.

Because of their commerce with the Chicago Bears within the 2021 NFL Draft, the New York Giants are in a wonderful place to change the franchise’s fortunes dramatically. On this 2022 NFL Mock Draft, they maintain two prime 10 alternatives, an indication that sticking with Daniel Jones for one more 12 months perhaps didn’t work out all that properly. In fact, the pure assumption is that they’d use this choice on a quarterback, however everyone knows what assumptions do.

The 2022 NFL Draft quarterback class comprises lots of uncertainty at this level. Though the Giants will get a brand new signal-caller shortly, there isn’t a prospect that necessitates them working as much as the rostrum right here. Nonetheless, in offensive lineman Kenyon Inexperienced, there may be.

They should tackle the offensive line, and, for me, Inexperienced is comfortably the very best offensive lineman within the class. He’ll play deal with for Texas A&M this 12 months, however he’s an elite inside lineman. Wherever he traces up for the Giants, he’ll mechanically improve the road.

Contemplating PFN will get to select and select the place the Giants choose on this mock draft (they selected Vegas odds), the argument that “selecting right here means Daniel Jones failed” holds no actual water. It’s only a subjective assumption made by the creator and a few bookies.

That being stated, the number of Inexperienced is sensible. The Giants are arguably the weakest alongside their offensive line and particularly at guard. However once more, we gained’t know that for certain till practically a 12 months from now.

Subsequent up, as PFN beforehand alluded and appeared in a rush to get to, the Giants choose a Daniel Jones substitute with a near-carbon copy: Cincinnati quarterback Desmond Ridder.

The Giants are all in on Daniel Jones — apparently. Their strikes within the draft and free company have set the third-year quarterback up for achievement. The addition of Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney presents Jones the very best vast receiver room he’s had to date. In consequence, there aren’t any excuses. There needs to be success this season. Selecting twice within the prime 10 would counsel that success is absent from the 2021 Giants.

Cincinnati’s Desmond Ridder provides the Giants an thrilling different to Jones. Sure, there are some accuracy points that he must iron out. However if you mix the prototypical top of an NFL quarterback with a mesmerizing skill to create performs exterior of the pocket, Ridder supplies an intriguing potential substitute. He’ll possible compete on the Senior Bowl too, the place successful the MVP award would virtually assure him being drafted by the Giants.

The 6-foot-4 Ridder does have prototypical top. So does the 6-foot-5 Jones. And sure, Ridder does have a capability to create performs exterior of the pocket. So does Jones.

PFN doesn’t disguise that they’re not followers of Jones, so soak up this evaluation with a grain of salt.
