After surprising some with the drafting of corner back Deonte Banks, the New York Giants were busier on Day two of the draft shoring up huge needs on the offensive side of the ball with the drafting of center John Michael Schmitz out of Minnesota, and wide receiver Jalin Hyatt out of Tennessee.

Many thought the Giants had to address both their offensive line and receiving depth in this draft, considering for most of the year last year it was the Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley Show. Yes, Isaiah Hodgins caught on late, but the G-men still needed help in the receiving department.

Let’s take a look at the three men who now call MetLife Stadium home.

  • Deonte Banks has the Size and Speed

    Banks has the size (6-0, 197 lbs) and is said to posses good elite short-area quickness, and is physical off the point of attack. That said, he had only one interception in his career at Maryland. He enjoyed his best year last season with 38 tackles and a half-sack.

  • Just a kid from Baltimore

  • A man of few words

    Perhaps it’s just nerves in his first press conference, but Deonte Banks appears to be a man of few words. That could be a great thing; let the play do the talking.

  • John Michael Schmitz is a beast

    Perhaps the most important pick for the Giants in this draft thus far is the drafting of center John Michael Schmitz. He is 6-foot-4, 320 lbs, and is considered to be the top center in the draft. He was also a three-time All Big Ten Player. The Giants might thank the Jets for passing on Schmitz when they took another top center in Wisconsin’s Joe Tippmann.

  • The Giants got a gamer in Schmitz

  • Joe Schoen is all smiles

    Can’t blame the Giants GM for getting his guy at pick number 57 in the draft.

  • Giants Traded up for Jalin Hyatt

    The Giants later traded up to pick #73 with the LA Rams to select receiver Jalin Hyatt, and they might be glad they did, his numbers pop.

  • Hyatt had a monster day vs. Alabama

  • Jalin Always wanted the G-Men
