The Giants have promising quarterback Daniel Jones entering his second season in 2020.
Big Blue hit on at least one of their later picks with wideout Darius Slayton at last year's draft, potentially landing a long-term play-maker for their potential franchise QB.
Is it now time to protect their leader in the pocket?
In Bucky Brooks' first 2020 mock draft on NFL.com, that's exactly what the Giants do.
With the fourth-overall pick, Brooks has them taking the first offensive lineman off the board -- Alabama's Jedrick Wills.
Here's how Brooks breaks down that pick:
"Dave Gettleman's affinity for the 'hog mollies' could lead the Giants to add an edge blocker to protect their young quarterback."
According to Pro Football Focus, Wills allowed only one sack and 14 QB pressures in 450 pass-blocking snaps last season. He also made huge improvements as a run blocker, as his grade in the run game jumped from a 63.1 in 2018 to 91.4 this past season.
Wills was a two-year starter for the powerhouse that Alabama is, but the big question on him is whether or not he can play on the left side of the offensive line. At Alabama, he exclusively played on the right side and if he is the pick at No. 4, the Giants will likely want him to be Jones' long-term insurance policy on his blind side. The 6-foot-5, 320-pound lineman will have to prove that at the next level -- no easy task.
