NFL draft: Breaking down all the Giants’ needs

Error 0:

Logic dictates the Giants only can fill one of their many needs with the No. 4 pick in the NFL draft.

Unless the selection is Clemson’s Isaiah Simmons.

Simmons played at least six snaps at seven different positions — inside linebacker, outside linebacker, defensive line, strong safety, slot cornerback, free safety and outside cornerback, according to Pro Football Focus — in Clemson’s loss to LSU in Monday’s national championship game. His final stat line: Six tackles, two quarterback hurries, two pass breakups and a sack.

For a defense in desperate need of game-changers at every level — the Giants devoted the least amount of NFL salary-cap space to defense in 2019 — Simmons could be the perfect solution.
