The Giants took receiver Kadarius Toney of Florida with the 20th pick to bolster the league’s second-worst offense. Toney (6 foot, 193 pounds) gives quarterback Daniel Jones an additional target downfield. Toney averaged 14 yards on his 70 catches last season, scoring 10 touchdowns. He is an elite tackle-breaker once he has the ball.
The Giants felt comfortable trading their 11th pick to the Chicago Bears in return for the 20th and additional picks later in the draft. General Manager Dave Gettleman, who’s been on the hot seat because of picks in previous years, had signaled his willingness to trade down: “Honest, I’ve tried to trade back, but it’s got to be value,” he told reporters last week. “I’m not getting fleeced. I refuse to do it. If somebody wants to make a bad trade back, God bless them.”
Giants fans seemed perplexed by the pick, but they can check the video to get up to speed on their new receiver.
