Whether or not the New York Giants are able to trade James Bradberry, they’re going to need additional depth at the cornerback position. And by all accounts, they’re expected to add some during the 2022 NFL draft.
But how about at No. 5 overall? Many would scoff at that thought given the team’s emergency need at right tackle — especially when considering they’ll likely get a shot at one of Evan Neal, Ikem Ekwonu or Charles Cross.
However, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports that should Cincinnati’s Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner still be available at No. 5, the Giants may pull the trigger.
Some league sources believe the Giants are high enough on Cincinnati corner Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner that he is in play at No. 5 overall.
Gardner and LSU’s Derek Stingley Jr. are considered by many to be the two best corners in this class. Schoen was front and center at Gardner’s pro day. Offensive tackles and edge rushers are also options with the Giants’ two top-7 picks. Schoen might trade back out of one spot, too.
The Giants have a lot of value to choose from with their two first-round picks. Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton is another potential option, which could push offensive tackle or edge rusher into later rounds.
