The SEC season kicks off this week, and given the NFL talent this conference constantly brings to the field, we’re obviously going to be watching them.This week has a solid roster of games with draft prospects that could help. the Giants pretty immediately in 2021, so without further ado, let’s get going

The Florida squad will be the one to watch today, especially after Ole Miss starting center Eli Johnson withdrew from the 2020 season after his father was hospitalized with COVID-19

Florida could have several players rising in the draft standings over the next few weeks, starting with quarterback Kyle Trask There will always be NFL talent assessors who fall in love with the big quarterbacks, and Trask will definitely grab their attention at 6ft 5in, 240lb He will likely be a draft, however, as he never started a game (high school or college) until his junior season in the red jersey in 2019. He obviously has a lot of learning and development to do, but if he is able to thrive this year, we could see his profile increase in the draft season.

Florida tight end Kyle Pitts is already one of the best players in his job.He has a long frame (6ft 5in, 240lb) and he knows how to maximize his huge catch radius as a receiver Pitts has played all over Florida’s defensive front and can be a showdown issue in the hands of a creative offensive coordinator. He also shows the willpower which you like to see as a blocker, but needs to improve his technique and add a little more power to his game.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Giants are likely to be drawn to NT Tedarrell Slayton, who weighs 6ft 5in and 360lb – but somehow manages to handle that weight well enough not to have looking quite so tall A player of pure power, Slayton is primarily used as a two-pass defender who intimidates inside linemen on the first and second down but is out of the field in passing situations

While the Giants’ love for massive defensive tackles may draw them to Slayton, they should probably pay more attention to CB Marco Wilson and EDGE Jeremiah Moon Wilson is a good-sized, fast corner that can play for just about any role that is asked of him He has experience in the slot machine as well as away, in zone and man (off) coverage, and he has a knack for making a quarterback -back as a blitzer This versatility could play well in the defense of Patrick Graham Moon is another long and lanky defenseman, and he is at his best rushing 2 points. Rated at 6ft 6in, 230 pounds, he doesn’t have the mass for consistently play the final defensive position, but he shows surprising power as a standing runner He’s a high-motor skills player who can play in space as an off-ball linebacker and use his downhill athleticism as a passer.

We’ll start with West Virginia, because when you think of the Big 12 you don’t often think of ‘defense’ – unless of course you’re wondering if someone is going to slow down the opposing offense.

With West Virginia, we’re going to talk about Darius Stills and Dante Stills The Stills Brothers are undersized (6ft 1ft, 280lb and 6ft 3in, 275lb, respectively) but athletic inside defensive linemen. that can cause problems for opposing offenses Darius is a highly explosive indoor rusher who never seems to slow down, while Dante shows surprising power for an undersized indoor lineman. Both players are best placed to attack defenses from a gap and could be very useful for a ‘multiple’ defense that plays on both the 3 and 4 player fronts.

On the Oklahoma State side, we pretty much have to start with running back Chuba Hubbard Hubbard is a natural runner with a great combination of vision, patience and movement abilities to spot holes and maximize his blocking. also a legitimate track speed, apparently running a 43-second 40-yard run and was once a hope for the Canadian Olympic team (he was born and raised in Alberta before enlisting in the state of Oklahoma ) Hubbard is still thriving in the passing game, with inconsistent hands and blocks, but if a coach puts those skills up to par, he could end up with a three-hitting weapon

Oklahoma State also has a receiver to know in Tylan Wallace Wallace isn’t tall at 6ft and 185 pounds, but he’s a reliable receiver who handles good roads and has sticky hands with good coordination. hand-eye He’s also a very physical receiver both at the point of capture and when blocking Wallace is concerned about injuries after tearing an ACL last year and sustaining a groin injury earlier this year

Sure we have to talk about Alabama, but before they dominate the draft conversation I want to mention a few players from Missouri

We’ll start with wide receiver Damon Hazelton At 6-foot-2, 215 pounds, he’s a long, big, big-game catcher who can create splash plays on the field as well as with the ball in his hands. hands after capture Offensive coordinators are going to be intrigued by his size and ability to play, but teams will want to know why he was transferred twice (first from Ball State to Virginia Tech, then to Missouri as a graduate)

Linebacker Nick Bolton doesn’t have the elite athleticism and reach of some other linebackers in this draft class (namely Dylan Moses or Micah Parsons), but he is a very physical and energetic defenseman who has the ability to contribute on all three downs He has enough covering ability to stay with most running backs and tight ends in space, besides being a threat as a blitzer He’s a bit undersized at 6ft and 230 pounds, but Bolton is able to play through blockers in run defense and as a pass passer

Okay, now in Alabama: Nick Saban has been one of the NFL’s most consistent football factories in years Between recruiting and coaching, editorial boards are constantly littered with prospects from Alabama. I want to highlight a pair of prospects that should be of particular interest to the Giants, but as always, when the question is « which players from? » Alabama should I watch? ”the answer is“ all ”

Giants fans will want to watch out for linebacker Dylan Moses and CB Patrick Surtain II Each are among the best at their positions in the country and would fill a dire need in the Giants defense Moses is a true ‘modern’ linebacker at 6 3 inch feet and 235 pounds with three-dimensional athleticism He is able to descend with authority while having elite athleticism and true sideline distance in space Moses is an instinctive player – although he can still be caught off guard with bad direction – and a remarkably physical linebacker at the touch point

Surtain II has a prototypical build for a starting NFL cornerback at 6ft 1m, 203lb with a good mix of size and speed He shows solid patience at the line of scrimmage with feet and hips to stay with most receivers during their breaks and speed running with them on the court Surtain II shows a nuanced understanding of position on the pitch and knows how to use the touchline as an additional defender It’s also a competitive physical corner capable of disrupting at the point of attack
