New York Giants take CB Shaun Wade in 2021 mock...


Though the 2020 season has yet to arrive, there are still those looking ahead to the 2021 NFL Draft. For the New York Giants, it’s another chance to grab some elite talent for a rebuilding roster.

One of the main areas in which the Giants will likely focus their attention is at the cornerback position. Despite adding James Bradberry in free agency this year, there are some question marks in the room.

Thus in a 2021 mock draft from 247Sports, the Giants used the No. 7 overall pick on Ohio State cornerback Shaun Wade.

In our first crack at this mock draft, we had the Giants picking first, but, alas, the latest consensus is that they won’t get that lucky — or be that bad. So, instead they’ll wind up with the seventh overall pick, and select Shaun Wade, the Ohio State corner who should help shore up what was the league’s eighth-worst defense in 2019.

At 6-foot-1 and 194 pounds, Wade is expected to be the next in a long line of solid cornerbacks to come out of Ohio State. In his sophomore season for the Buckeyes, he tallied 4.0 tackles for loss and two interceptions.

The Giants cornerback room currently consists of the aforementioned Bradberry, DeAndre Baker, Sam Beal, Corey Ballentine, Grant Haley, Julian Love and 2020 fourth-round pick Darnay Holmes.
