The New York Giants had three picks in the first round, which should have helped the previous system put the franchise on the right track to winning seasons, but that didn’t happen. Big Blue has split from former General Manager Dave Gittleman, and the new management still has to see if Daniel Jones can make a good start.

As a rookie, Jones showed flashes, throwing 3,027 yards, 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, but his passing yards and touchdown totals were down after that. Although the sports caller ran for 1,000 yards and five touchdowns, he ran into some ball protection issues with 36 fumbles, losing 20 of them. The Giants refused to pick the fifth year in his rookie deal.

The Giants waived Deandre Baker before the 2020 season as he faced theft charges, but Florida prosecutors have dropped those charges.

Dexter Lawrence provided the largest return among the Giants’ Day 1 picks, with 145 tackles to lose, 14 to lose, nine sacks, 48 ​​push-ups and five assists.

In his first two years, Darius Slayton exceeded expectations, pulling 98 passes for 1,491 yards and 11 touchdowns, but he’s seen a big drop last year (26 receptions for 339 yards and two touchdowns). According to Dan Duggan of The Athletic, the giants shopped for him in the trade block.

In a mostly reserve role, Julian Love filled in some minor holes in safety and a back corner hole, recording 167 tackles for a loss, seven for a loss, 13 breakout passes and three interceptions. He’ll have a chance to start safe due to Logan Ryan’s departure to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

If the new coaching staff helps Jones collect his best year, the Giants will get a boost in their grade. So far, they clearly didn’t get enough of their first round investment.
