According to the Athletic’s Dan Duggan, because new Giants HC Joe Judge has placed a heavy weight on familiarity when filling out his coaching staff, it stands to reason he’ll do the same with the roster.
Browns LB Joe Schobert and OT Greg Robinson could also be free-agent options for the Giants because of their connections with new TE coach Freddie Kitchens.
SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano reports Giants GM Dave Gettleman is “more open to the idea” of trading down from No. 4 overall. Gettleman has never traded down in the draft as a general manager.
The arrival of Judge from the Patriots, who place a high value on trading down, is a factor, per Vacchiano, who also points out the draft board shapes up well for a trade down, with teams looking to move up for a quarterback and multiple players the Giants would still be able to draft a few picks later.
