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.

In Mel Kiper Jr.'s first two-round mock draft, the longtime NFL Draft prognosticator suggests the New York Giants will select a cornerback and linebacker, respectively, with their first and second-round picks.

At No. 19, Kiper projects the Giants to draft cornerback Desmond Trufant from the University of Washington. The 6-foot, 190-pound former Huskie impressed at the NFL Combine, solidifying his status as a first-round talent.

NFL.com compares Trufant to Cardinals cornerback Antoine Cason, praising him for his size, athleticism and short-area foot quickness. However, experts believe he'll have to improve his overall strength on the professional level.
