The first day of 2019 Big Blue View Draft-A-Thon is in books and now the Big Blue View community has done some solid work.
In the first round the New York Giants came to help with both offensive and defensive lines in Ed Oliver (iDL, Houston) and Jonah Williams (OT, Alabama) in the sixth and 17th overall, according to respectively.
Oliver swill slot immediately as a defensive end to base pack packages and a 3-technique defensive nickel package. He has unusual athleticism and movement skills to go to the wonderful power for a smaller lineman and should be an immediate boost to Giants' pass rush today that he is freed from playing nose tackle . Oliver's ups and downs are so big that he should be better at teaching as he learns to use his hands, learn more about play, and finish his rushes.
Williams is an immediate starter in the right direction, potentially allowing the Giants to move from Nate Solder if they choose after 201
In the second round the BBV selected Missouri QB Drew Lock for Giants, would have been solving their quarterback questions for a long time. Lock is an experienced passer, but is not accurate in all college races. The Giants hope that one year of being coached while sitting behind Eli Manning will help to use his physical tools, which are wonderful.
In the third round, BBV is faced with some uncomfortable selection. If the draft rules are allowed, a reach or a trade down is probably better to select one of the players within the ten best players list available. But without reaching or trading the table, the BBV community chose Ben Powers (OG, Oklahoma). Mississippi, which is very close to Dawson Knox, took precedence over most polls, but the Powers were closed and sent him for nearly fifteen minutes to go and finished with 200 votes at Knox & # 39; s 184.
Powers will start his Giants career as a great player, but strong guard can give Giants the option to move from Kevin Zeitler's lucrative contract following the 2019 season, which earns Giants $ 22 million saved in cap in 2020 and 2021 periods without dead money. Drew Lock (QB, Missouri)] The Draft
