The Giants addressed their offensive line in Round 1 with the selection of Justin Pugh, the offensive tackle who will likely slide in opposite of Will Beatty Week 1.

Though protecting Eli Manning and creating gaps for David Wilson to burst through was a premier concern, the Giants still need to address areas of need along the roster.

The Giants next pick 17th in the second round (49th overall). One name rumored to be a fit is Kevin Minter, the inside linebacker out of LSU.

Alabama OL Chance Warmack

In Rotoworld's Evan Silva's two-round mock draft, the analyst projects the Giants to nab offensive guard Chance Warmack and cornerback Darius Slay in the first two rounds.

Silva's prediction of a guard goes along with the theme of addressing an aging line. Warmack is not the prototypical name that has been linked to the Giants, though. Other mock drafts have tended to connect the team with offensive tackles -- including Warmack's former teammate at Alabama, D.J. Fluker, and Menelik Watson out of Florida State.

Most mock drafts have the Giants drafting Manti Te'o, D.J. Fluker or a defensive back with their first-round selection.

Not Gil Brandt.

The NFL.com senior analyst has pegged former Florida State offensive tackle Menelik Watson falling to New York at 19, a name that has not been linked to the team thus far.
