Welcome back to our conclusion of the 2017 New York Giants Mockness Monster. So far, the Giants have built up a strong offensive weapons with Njoku in the 1st round, JuJu Smith-Schuster in the 3rd, Dan Skipper in the 4th and James Conner in the 5th. While adding some defensive depth in the 2nd with DeMarcus Walker and Ben Boulware in the 6th. Now, the Giants look to add some more offensive help, as well as special teams help.

And that concludes the 2017 New York Giants Mockness Monster. Here, the Giants used a sizable emphasis on fixing a dull, lifeless offense from the year before, while adding some depth to the defense and special teams. We will see just what kind of decisions Jerry Reese and the Giants organizations make come free agency/draft day.
