I like what Jerry Reese is doing in this free agency period

I am a firm believer in the best way to work the draft is to go into the draft with no pressing needs.   Well the way Jerry is working the draft in terms of retaining players and adding players he is effectively eliminating any sort of pressing need (I am anticipating Hankins or a replacement to be signed shortly).   That means the team will be able to literally go best athlete available in the early rounds.   Now the team does ideally need to pick up a CB and a RB in later rounds but I classify that more as you need room for the new draft picks to contribute rather than a pressing need that forces a team to reach for need.

Now consider the positions

QB-  The team could draft one in any round including round 1 if they feel they can get their next franchise QB.

WR-  Perhaps one of the only positions with no really need.   This is not a strong WR draft class so it works out well

TE-  The team has space (by pushing out Will Tye who disappointed with his blocking in year 2) if a good one falls in their lap

RB-  The team certainly can draft a companion RB (in a strong RB draft class) for Perkins

OL-  Ideally the team could use a starting LT but if they don't get one, it's not the end of the world.  I think this offensive line could get by if need be.

DE-  The team could certainly add an edge rusher to give over worked JPP and Vernon a breather.

DT-  There is room for a 3 tech even if they sign one short term in the form of Hankins (or Ordick

LB-  The team has room to upgrade at this position or add depth

CB-  The team could add another CB who would be DRC's successor and provide good depth.  Again a very great draft for CBs so the team will should be able to find a bargain.

S-  The team looks pretty good but it wouldn't be the end of the world of they found a really good safety.  The team could go back to the heavy nickle package which has been successful in the past.

K-  The team would do well to get themselves a kicker in the later rounds

Return Specialist-  The team certainly could add one.

Could Penn State’s Hamilton shore up the Giants’ depth chart? The New York Giants probably aren’t selecting a wide receiver early in the 2018 NFL Draft. They were devastated by injuries at the position in 2017, but still boast an incredibly talented group of starters. Instead, the Giants will likely need to address and add to their depth at the position. That could lead them to look at more under-the-radar prospects like Penn State’s DaeSean Hamilton.
