From The Ground Up – New York Giants 2024 Draft Profile

The New York Football Giants had a rough 2023 season after what was a major success the year prior. Brian Daboll now has to strip away some old parts and re-tool a roster full of young talent. He has a good number of picks in the NFL Draft, and can put together a young core that takes the league by storm for years to come.


Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Blake Fisher, Tackle, Notre Dame

Blake Corum, HB, Michigan


New York needs to get the threat on the outside that they have been lacking since the departure of Odell Beckham Jr. The sixth overall pick is the perfect place to find that piece and one of the best receivers in the draft will be there for the taking.

Rome Odunze is as polished as any receiver in the class of 2024. His ability to create separation with speed, route technique or strength is akin to a NFL veteran in how he uses them. He thrives in the short to intermediate, but can also take the top off the defense with deceptive speed outside the numbers. Pairing him with players like Jalen Hyatt and Wan’Dale Robinson would give the Giants a three headed monster at receiver.

The Giants also have questions about Evan Neal and where his best fit is thus far. Many feel his best spot is guard and if so then New York will need to get a replacement tackle to plug-in.

Blake Fisher is a natural right tackle with great physical traits. He is a very high IQ guy who rarely falls for complex stunts or twists, allowing him to find and stick his assignment. He also is very physical in pass protection, playing with great leverage and hand placement for a taller tackle.

Fisher comes in as the starting tackle for New York, and at just 20-years old he will have a long career at the next level.

Saquon Barkley will be playing in another jersey in 2024 – the Giants will need to find a way to replace his production.

Drafting a player like Blake Corum with their second pick in round two would be just what the doctor ordered.

Corum possesses the speed and contact balance to play in any scheme at the pro level. His ability to set up blocks and make people miss is poetry in motion. Questions may be posed about his stature and therefore his durability, but he played a full season in three of his four seasons at Michigan.

Corum may not be Barkley but he will be serviceable, cheap and productive for the Giants.

This draft is going to set the tone for the future of the Giants going forward. Daboll and company will have to get gems to create the foundation, and then watch the house take form.
