Giants Need: 2
We dare you to show us a deeper and more talented defensive line in the entire league. With the two solid signings of Chris Canty and Rocky Bernard and the return of Pro Bowler Osi Umenyiora, the Giants can put DL on the back burner this draft – although taking a late-round chance on an athlete sounds about right.

Giants Need: 8
Even though the depth chart is loaded, the Giants are facing a lot of questions at LB. Most notable is what the future holds for Antonio Pierce, as some in the know seem to think this might be his last season. As a result, going for an athletic inside LB early on would not be a shock. We've heard that James Laurinaitis of Ohio State is a strong possibility if New York sits tight at number 29. Big Blue also hosted highly-regarded Virgini a LB Clint Sintim for a visit.
Position Strength: 8
Giants Need: 6
If everyone stays healthy and plays up to their ability, the Giants are looking at boasting one of their better secondary units in decades. But we all know you can never have too many corners, and it would be very surprising if the Giants go through a 10-selection draft and don't tab at least one DB. Second-day possibilities include a pair of athletic corners – Vince Anderson of Weber International and Florida State's Michael Garvin.
