New York Giants choose two defenders in newest 2022 TD Wire mock

With the 2021 NFL season still a month away, what could football fans be less interested in than a 2022 mock draft? Not so fast. NFL fans and pundits are always looking ahead and would be remiss if they weren’t aware of what was lies ahead on the horizon.

Luke Easterling of Draft Wire recent published his latest two-round 2022 NFL mock draft and for the New York Giants that means three picks. Here’s how Easterling sees things shaking out.

Round 1, Pick No. 8 – Christian Harris, LB Alabama

Fans have to be concerned if the Giants are picking this high. That means they had another losing season and failed to qualify for the postseason again. If that happens, there’s little chance they answer with a linebacker with their top pick. If they don’t win eight games and/or Daniel Jones shows no improvement, general manager Dave Gettleman will be gone and a new GM will be calling the shots. That would likely mean going in another direction at quarterback. This pick will be used to either draft one or trade for one, possibly Aaron Rodgers.

Round 1, Pick No. 10 (from Chicago) – Drake Jackson, EDGE, USC

Again, this presents an issue. This pick will not be used for a EDGE rusher if the Giants have another losing season. This would also mean that Azzez Ojulari and/or Elerson Smith busted as rookies. This pick will likely be part of a trade to move up in the draft order or in a trade for a veteran QB.

Round 2, Pick No. 40 – Nick Broeker, OT Ole Miss

This pick is contingent on what happens in Round 1. I’m never averse to taking an offensive tackle early in the draft but this selection tells me that one or both Andrew Thomas and Matt Peart busted. That means Gettleman is surely gone and who knows what the new GM has in mind.

I have no issues with the players Easterling has mocked to the Giants but it stands to reason that if they are drafting eighth, they won no more than six games in 2021 and if that happens John Mara is likely to blow this thing up. That would mean eight losing seasons out of the last nine and that just cannot the tolerated. The fans won’t stand for it.
