#12 New York Giants: Aaron Donald DE/DT Pitt

Rory’s Take: The Giants really lacked interior pass rush last year and some penetration up front would be a massive assist for JPP making his job easier.

Chase’s Take: New York hinted at an end of an era for their once vaunted pass rush in the offseason by letting Justin Tuck walk to the Oakland Raiders. Donald, a tweener who has great tape and a great Senior Bowl and Combine to back up his stock as a first rounder, would be the perfect pick to add to the Giants inside pass rush while being able to mentor him with the proven veterans who are still in the fold.
