He's smart, tough, physical and can beat defenses from inside the pocket. He's accurate and poised, having shown that this year with monster games against good defenses like Michigan, Northwestern and Washington.”</p > </p ><p > <p ><strong >No. 17:</strong > Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson</p > </p ><p > <p ><strong >Analysis:</strong > “After trading Odell Beckham, Jr. to the Cleveland Browns, the New York Giants own an extra pick in the first round. With Dwayne Haskins secured at No. 6 overall to play quarterback, the Giants' front office will likely look to bolster the defense. That's how general manager Dave Gettleman works. Right defensive end Clelin Ferrell can play with his hand in the dirt or standing up as an outside edge-rusher. Teams will love his length, burst and work ethic with a non-stop motor that allows him a number of effort sacks against top-tier blockers. Ferrell's ability to convert speed to power is eye-opening and could be everything the Giants are looking for in a top-tier defensive end to build around.”</p > </p ><p > <p ><code data-tlink="https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/draft/2019/03/14/nfl-mock-draft-2019-odell-beckham-free-agency/3148649002/&quot; ><strong >Nate Davis, USA TODAY</strong ></code ></p > </p ><p > <p ><strong >No. 6:</strong > Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State</p > </p ><p > <p ><strong >Analysis:</strong > “The makeover is officially underway with OBJ leaving town. Haskins has long seemed like the right guy for New York, given the value of an apprenticeship under Eli Manning. And GM Dave Gettleman's decisions to part with Beckham and S Landon Collins seem like a strong indication that he's less interested in winning now than setting this franchise up for the future. The Giants spurned the chance to draft a passer in Round 1 last year, but that seems unlikely now.”</p > </p ><p > <p ><strong >No. 17:</strong > Jeffery Simmons, DT, Mississippi State</p > </p ><p > <p ><strong >Analysis:</strong > “He might be a top-five pick with a clean résumé, and that kind of value might be too good for Gettleman to pass up (even if Simmons' 6-4, 301-pound build isn't quite at Hog Molly specs) as he restocks New York's ailing defense.”</p > </p >

The Giants, barring another deal, are on track to select two players in the first round for the first time since 1984.
