Coming into the 2019 NFL Draft, the Giants needed to address their pass rush. Ranking 30th in the league last year just doesn't cut it, and with Olivier Vernon -- the team's best option off the edge -- traded to the Browns this offseason, it became that much more of a priority.
And when Josh Allen, arguably the best edge rusher in the Draft, fell to the Giants at No. 6, it seemed liker a no-brainer. But GM Dave Gettleman wanted his quarterback of the future in Daniel Jones, and made their pick. Montez Sweat was also on the board at No. 16, but Clemson DT Dexter Lawrence heard his name called instead.
It wasn't until the third round that the Giants got their edge rusher in Oshane Ximines, the first player to ever be drafted out of Old Dominion. He may be from a small school, but he totaled 32.5 sacks over his four-year career with the Monarchs.
