It is absolutely no secret that the New York Giants have to have a successful 2022 NFL Draft.  They hold the 5th and 7th picks in the first round tonight and they both have to be homeruns.  The Giants just like the Jets, have been irrelevant for about a decade or so now and I want them to be successful.  New York is one of the premier sports markets in the country and it would be awesome to have the Bills, Giants, and Jets all be good at the same time.  The Giants will certainly have a plethora of options available to them picking 5th and 7th.  Here is my quick take on this from the Times Union:

The Giants must come out of Round One of Thursday's NFL draft with a starting offensive tackle. New GM Joe Schoen will make upgrading the offensive line a priority and pick either Ickey Ekwonu out of North Carolina State or Evan Neal from Alabama when they select 5th overall. Both are can’t miss players who will open up holes for running back Saquon Barkley and protect Quarterback Daniel Jones.

The pressure is on for new GM Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll to deliver for the Giants faithful.  I can't wait to watch the draft tonight and see what our local teams of interest do here on Big Board Sports.
