Giants' complete 2017 NFL Draft order is set

As expected, he reinforced the general consensus that the crop of defensive backs and edge rushers is especially strong.

But the how, the where and the who still need answers.

NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock sees Njoku being available in the mid-to-later part of the first round along with O.J. Howard, the highly-ranked Alabama tight end.

"Well, I think if you follow Ozzie (Newsome) and Eric DeCosta over the years, what they do really well is they typically get good football players because they don't reach for positional needs. Which is kind of incredible", Mayock said.

Garoppolo has one year remaining on his rookie contract and is scheduled to hit free agency in 2018. He also noted Ashland's Adam Shaheen, "a small-school kid that's 277 pounds and catches the ball really well". He's going to be an intriguing guy to watch at the Combine. "I would be surprised if he lasted that long, but".

As the National Football League combine and National Football League draft near, it's become apparent the quarterback class isn't very strong. "As far as this particular draft is concerned, the way I'd look at it if I was Kansas City and I was looking for a quarterback, I'd rather get a guy that I felt like had some talent". "In a typical year, 10 tackles go in the first three rounds, and I can't find 10 guys that I would give grades to their rounds one through three". I think Jordan Leggett is a different conversation.

The third issue was one that the leaders did not explicitly spell out but dropped hints about, using phrases such as "new concept" and "bigger deal" with "newfound allies".

"I think you have to be smart about how you're utilizing talent", Mayock said during a Monday conference call. "If Ramczyk was in last year's draft, he would be the fourth or fifth guy taken".

"What they really don't have, I don't think, is that big banger that is the 1st and 10 back, your fourth-quarter back".

"It wouldn't bother me at all if they drafted a couple corners, and I think they could". I think Derek Barnett (Tennessee) is one of the hardest working, toughest edge rushers in this draft or any draft. Mayock started off by saying something about Alex that I tried to point out the other day. There is a kid named Ahkello Witherspoon, 6-3, out of Colorado. "Or are you looking for a guy that can go out in the slot, play wideout and all that, when you already have Riddick?" "I would be stoked", he said.

If you're talking about what the Jets should do at six based on what they've done with their offensive line, they just released or didn't re-sign three of their starting offensive linemen. This time, of course, he's trying baseball.

Though he'll be in the minor league camp, he will get some exposure in major league spring-training games.
