The New York Giants are one of the most storied franchises in the National Football League. The last three years, however, have been less than stellar for the G-Men.

After going 3-13 in 2017 and 5-11 in 2018, the Giants went 4-12 in 2019, which gave them the No. 4 overall pick in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft.

Bottom line: With expectations always high in New York/New Jersey, the Giants and General Manager Dave Gettleman have to get this pick right. That said, here’s who the oddsmakers at DraftKings believe they’ll select at No. 4 overall.

Odds courtesy of DraftKings as of April 13, 2020.


Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville (+400)

Becton will be one of the largest players in the league from day one of his professional career. The former Louisville standout measured in at the NFL Combine at 6-foot-7, 364 pounds with a 7-foot wingspan. He will be a bit of a project and his weight will require constant monitoring, but players with Becton’s size and surprising athletic ability are rare.

Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa (+350)

The Giants have needed offensive line help for several years (remember the Ereck Flowers debacle). Wirfs is big, physical, and athletic. He’s projects as more of a right in the NFL, but that’s actually fine for the Giants who have Nate Solder manning their left tackle spot.

Isaiah Simmons, S/LB, Clemson (+150)

Simmons has been slightly overshadowed by former Ohio State star Chase Young during the pre-draft process, but the former Clemson All-American should be a day one impact starter for whatever team ultimately lands him.

Simmons would fill a need for the Giants and is the type of hybrid defensive player that excels in today’s NFL.

Others:

  • Jedrick Willis (+450)
  • Andrew Thomas (+900)
  • Chase Young (+1400)
  • Derrick Brown (+1600)
  • Jeffrey Ukudah (+1600)
  • Jerry Jeudy (+3300)
  • K’Lavon Chasson (+5000)
  • Javon Kinlaw (+5000)
  • CeeDee Lamb (+5000)
  • Henry Ruggs III (+5000)
