Shouldn't we expect the unexpected when it comes to Dave Gettleman and the New York Giants? It seems as though an offensive tackle at No. 4 overall would make the most sense -- to help Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley -- but Isaiah Simmons isn't out of the question, right? In this mock, the Giants go linebacker in the top 5 and really shake things up. Later in Round 1, the Vikings get aggressive when a top defender falls. Oh, and the Patriots pick a quarterback. Figured I should mention that. 

Before we get to the picks, these are the terms of the three trades I have in Round 1: 

  • Dolphins get No. 3; Lions get No. 5, No. 39, a 2021 second-round pick and Albert Wilson
  • Vikings get No. 17 overall; Cowboys get No. 22 overall, No. 58 
  • Raiders get No. 10 overall; Browns get No. 12 overall, No. 80

OK, let's get to it.

Will the Dolphins call? Maybe. And, heck, maybe the Bengals pick up. But they're picking Burrow.
Round 1 - Pick 2
Ohio State • 6'5" / 264 lbs
Projected Team
Washington
PROSPECT RNK
1st
POSITION RNK
1st
There's a chance the Dolphins get a little worried someone leapfrogs them for a quarterback, so they'll likely call Washington, but Ron Rivera's club will ultimately pick Young.

Detroit
PROSPECT RNK

Oregon • 6'6" / 236 lbs
Projected Team
L.A. Chargers
PROSPECT RNK
20th
POSITION RNK

Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
