2021 NFL Draft results: Analyzing the Giants’ Day 3 picks

It has been a long, weird, and wild ride, but now the 2021 NFL Draft is in the books. We have a number of new New York Giants to meet, including three selected over the course of the third day of the draft. The Giants got the day started by selecting EDGE Elerson Smith, who could be a sleeper to be one of the big steals of the draft, following that up by XX and YY in the sixth round.

So what do the newest Giants bring to the team?

Round 4

116th overall - Elerson Smith, EDGE, Nothern Iowa

The selection of Smith further reinforces the Giants’ pass rush with a big, long, and explosively athletic EDGE rusher.
