Round 4: RB Wayne Gallman, 6’0, 215 lbs., Clemson

Compares to  a somewhat-taller Ahmad Bradshaw. Played in a spread offense, so he is experienced taking handoffs from the shotgun. Has very quick feet and good vision, and creates his own yards with multiple cuts.

Can both make defenders miss in space. Explosive hitter in pass protection and has also been used as a lead blocker on designed quarterback runs and jet sweeps. Has a knack for releasing late on a checkdown and moving the chains. Low fumble rate (1 for every 148 touches). Would complement Paul Perkins nicely as a tough inside tackle breaking runner being able to step straight in.

Round 5: DE Avery Moss, 6’3″, 265 lbs., Youngstown State

Limited college experience. Played in 25 games over last two seasons, racking up 84 total tackles including 56 solo stops. Recorded 14 sacks and 22 tackles for a loss in head coach Bo Pellini’s program. Said he followed Pellini, the former Nebraska coach, to Youngstown State after he was banned by Nebraska for a December 2012 incident in which he allegedly exposed himself to a female student. Is a 2016-17 Michael LaRocca Scholarship recipient. Had a shoulder injury as a freshman at Nebraska.

Round 6: OT Adam Bisnowaty, 6’6″, 305 lbs, Pittsburgh

The Giants traded up seven spots in the sixth round to address their offensive line, snedin the Tennessee Titans their sixth and seventh picks in this draft to make the jump to grab Pittsburgh offensive tackle Adam Bisnowaty.

Bisnowaty has experience at left tackle, though once he gets to the Giants, head coach Ben McAdoo said they’ll work him at both tackle spots. Bisnowaty also brings a mean streak to the field, finishing each play to the whistle.

As for whether Bisnowaty, a heavily recruited player coming out of Fox Chapel high school,  is better than the Giants other options at offensive tackle, that remains to be seen. McAdoo said that the first-team All-ACC standout will get thrown head-first into the competition as the coaches try to determine where his best role will be as a rookie.
