With the 34th pick of the 2018 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the New York Giants select...

Derrius Guice, RB, LSU

The selection and write-up were made by anthszabo:

It comes down to the Giants having this player almost assuredly as a top twenty player on their board, and at pick 33 he’s most likely the only player left from that group, so the commish will call a running back’s name for only the second time in this draft -- Derrius Guice from LSU. After locking in the future quarterback they give Eli a weapon for the present. This pick would be a crowd pleaser and should appease both quarterbacks as well.

Of course the Giants team needs are plenty. They certainly need O-line help. They could maybe go for one of the top center prospects here like Daniels, Price, or Ragnow, but the top three guards and top three tackles have already come off the board. They definitely need linebacker help, but five went in the first round and they may have a sleeper for the later rounds at the position. And they need pass rush in the worst way after letting JPP go. Maybe a D-end would be the pick here, but just due to following the draft board I don’t think you pass on Guice. They’ll need to add help in all those other areas later in the draft or maybe on the waiver wire, but Guice adds a dimension to the offense that could make them legit scary when they already have OBJ, Engram, and Shepard.

Pokorny: “The Giants’ offense has been long overdue for an overhaul, and the combination of Mayfield-Guice gives fans something to look forward to. The offensive line still needs upgrading, but that combination is a fun start for the city of New York.”

The Cleveland Browns are up next, led by tmartin5785.
