NASHVILLE - The Giants had a busy first day of the NFL draft, ending up with three first-round picks before it was all over. Day 2 figures to be a lot quieter, at least at the moment.
Since they gave up their second-round pick (37th overall) when they traded back into the first round to select Georgia cornerback DeAndre Baker, the Giants currently have only one pick on the second day of the NFL draft. And they'll have to wait a while, too, because they don't pick until the 32nd selection of the third round - 95th overall.
Now, the Giants do still have six Day 3 picks and they are willing to trade some of them if they can move up from 95 to something closer to - or even in - the second round. But most likely they are going to miss out on some of the top prospects who were leftover after the first round.

So who will they be looking at in Round 3? It's a little hard to predict because they're picking so late, but here are a few names to watch:
OT Dalton Risner, Kansas State - It would take a trade up into the second round, most likely, to land this 6-5, 312-pounder. If the Giants do move up, you can bet they'll do it for an offensive lineman. Giants GM Dave Gettleman is likely going through withdrawal not having drafted one so far.
OT Greg Little, Mississippi - He's not likely to last long on Day 2, either. The Giants like the 6-5, 310-pounder, so if he slips they could try to pounce.
DE Jaylon Ferguson - They passed on edge rusher Josh Allen in Round 1, so they still need help at that position. Ferguson is a 6-5, 271-pounder who was very disruptive and seems to have a high-enough ceiling as a pass rusher.
RB Damien Harris, Alabama - The Giants are on the hunt for new backups to Saquon Barkley, though this might be a little high for them. Harris is a 5-10, 216-pound bowling bowl who could become the short-yardage back and save Barkley from some of the pounding he's likely to take this season.
C Elgton Jenkins, Mississippi State - The Giants like the centers they have, but they don't love them and they certainly could use a young one to groom for the future. This 6-4, 310-pounder has the talent and held his own in the SEC.
OL Connor McGovern, Penn State - The Giants might not have to move up far for this 6-5, 308-pounder. He's got terrific size and power and he can play both guard and center, too.
WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Stanford - The Giants receiving corps is small, and they could use a guy like this 6-2 receiver. Actually, they could use someone bigger, but he plays large, according to some scouts and knows how to get in position to make catches.
WR Jalen Hurd, Baylor - A 6-5, 226-pound former running back who is still learning how to play receiver. He could be sitting there for the Giants if they stay at 95. They sure do need a target with his kind of size. But there could be some growing pains. Might be a better Day 3 pick.
