Reese has publicly stated that trading-up hasn't worked out in the past, and that the FO prefers now to use "all their picks". With the salary cap the way it is, I think this is doubly true.
When I heard him say that (around draft time last season), all I could think about was how Ramses Barden would feel like when he heard that. But I guess he could also have been alluding to Sinorice Moss.
Short answer, No.
Warmack would be a great Giant.. don't see him getting past the Cowgirls though
What do people think of the following guys (assuming Warmack, Cooper, Ansah aren't available)?
1) D.J. Fluker We can groom him behind Diehl as a replacement. People are going to have to face that Diehl will be our starter this year.
2) Datone Jones - tweener project that Reese seems to love
3) Alec Ogletree - Might be a reach here but it seems the Giants might have interest
4) Kenny Vaccaro - love this guy and we have seen what his predecessor at Texas has done in the pros for Seattle.
As for Werner, I just don't see him fitting into the Giants mold for a DE. They have built themselves based off of DE with non-stop motors and length, and those are the biggest criticisms against Werner (his inconsistent motor and lack of length). I am sure Reese would love Ansah to drop as that would be his pick if he does. Don't see that happening though.

Ogletree makes sense, because he can cover and is athletic, and fast, at a positon that is extremely weak on our team and consists of Connor and Herzlich, who have both had very little success as pros so far, and datone jones is a great fit as a guy who reminds me alot of tuck, for his ability against the run, and versatility.. Tuck and Jones both rely on strength first and foremost... Kenny Vaccaro is someone i'd pass on, as i see a very good player, but i don't know about 1st rder..
