  • NFL Draft 2017: Who could Giants grab to replace Johnathan Hankins (if needed)?

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...rt_river_index

    Excerpt: "Johnathan Hankins won't be gone until he's gone.

    But chances are the defensive tackle will not return to the Giants in 2017, and they will be in the market for a new starting defensive tackle. Preferably one that complements Damon Harrison as a three-technique (lined up on the guard) tackle that rushes the passer.

    If the Giants opt to look to April's NFL Draft to land a defensive tackle, ESPN's Todd McShay says there will be several potential options to choose from, starting with Michigan State's Malik McDowell.

    "It depends on how you're going to classify him, if he's going to play inside or outside," the draft analyst said Wednesday on a conference call with reporters. McDowell (6-6, 295) has also been discussed as a potential defensive end fit.

    "He's tall, long. I think he may be the most talented interior lineman. There have been some questions about the work ethic and consistency. But from a skill standpoint, I think he can become a highly disruptive player. He's probably going to come off the board somewhere in the (Nos.) 10-25 range."

    The Giants have the No. 23 pick in the draft this year. In his latest mock draft, McShay projected McDowell to the Seahawks at No. 26, so the Giants could have a shot to grab him if so inclined. If not McDowell, McShay thinks Florida's Caleb Brantley, a likely second-round pick, is the next man up." Read more...

        I like Chris Wormley from Michigan as a 3rd round DT. I think he can kick inside at 3T and cause problems for Guards. He's already in the 290s, thickly built (a lot like Aaron Donald), and strong as hell.

            Well I agree if Big hank moves on DT must be the 1st or 2nd pick in the draft. Since DT is so deep I'm leaning toward an OT with the 23rd pick. But if the top OT 's are gone McDowell sounds great to me. Cause as of now JPP is gone next year as well. So he fills one of the potential holes and has a year under his belt. The more I think of it the more I like it. Even if we sign hank I like it. He's the passing situation DT spelling either Snacks or Hank.

                  Solomon Thomas is a base 4-3 End. On passing downs he moves to the 3 tech

                    Ive been seeing mocks with him going anywhere from the 2nd to the 4th rounds, so i took the average and settled with 3rd round, LOL

                      McDowell could be perfect. At 6'7'' 295 lbs. he could be flexible at either DT or DE. He should be there at #23 when we pick. He is getting a lot of attention lately and depending what were doing 2-4 picks we could pick another DL if Hank isn't signed and take whoever is better a DE or DT. If we sign hank McDowell could be rotational guy and if he shows promise and can play DE next year we let JPP walk and save 17 mil on the cap. Jus sayin !

                          Now that Hankins is supposedly asking for 10mil per, I REALLY want us to draft a DT in the 1st 3 rounds. Personally id rank them Brantley, Johnson, Watkins, and Taylor in that order, id be happy with any of the 4, but I REALLY want Brantley or Johnson
