2018 NFL Draft prospect profile: Kemoko Turay, EDGE, Rutgers

Could the Giants overlook Turay’s injuries and add him to their defense? The New York Giants’ once dangerous defense is suffering from an apparent lack of teeth in the pass rush department. Olivier Vernon is (currently) their only proven pass rusher, and while Avery Moss has flashed potential, it seemed as though the better he played, the fewer snaps he got in 2017. Beyond them, the cupboard is pretty bare after the trade of Jason Pierre-Paul. There is, however, an intriguing prospect right in the Giants’ own backyard. Rutgers’ Kemoko Turay is flying under the radar after injuries...

2018 NFL Draft prospect profile: Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville

Alexander is shorter than average, but big on talent The secondary was seen as a strength for the New York Giants coming in to the 2017 season. However, after a season which saw Janoris Jenkins and Landon Collins hampered by injury, the locker fractured, and an offseason that has seen veterans Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Ross Cockrell depart, the Giants have some work to do. While “nickel” sets, with five defensive backs on the field, are considered subpackages, the fact that defenses are in them upwards of 60 percent of their snaps means that a team’s third corner and third...

2018 NFL Draft prospect profile: Kolton Miller, OT, UCLA

Could the athletic but raw Miller be the future at offensive tackle for the Giants? The New York Giants need on the offensive line is well documented. The team made left tackle Nate Solder the highest paid offensive lineman in the NFL, moving Ereck Flowers to the new position of right tackle. However, both players might only be temporary solutions. Solder is 30 years old and has dealt with injuries in the past, while Flowers (who has always had technique issues) will have to learn how to play an entirely new position. The team could well look to add a developmental option who could...

2018 NFL Draft prospect profile: Michael Gallup, WR, Colorado State

Is Gallup a sleeper to reinforce the Giants’ receiving corps? The New York Giants have a need at wide receiver -- or at least for depth at wide receiver. They added Cody Latimer in free agency, but he has typically been a special teams contributor more than he has been a factor on offense. Meanwhile, they have lost Dwayne Harris and Brandon Marshall may yet be a cap casualty. Sterling Shepard showed himself to be a capable outside receiver between injuries in 2017, but the Giants might want to add more of a possession receiver for three (or four) receiver sets.
