Giants select OT Penei Sewell in latest PFF mock draft
The latest two-round NFL draft for 2021 by Pro Football Focus’s Anthony Treash has a few surprises, such as the Houston Texan quarterback Deshaun Watson trading with the Denver Broncos.
There are also some surprises for New York Giants fans in this mock and they start in Round 1.
11. NEW YORK GIANTS: T PENEI SEWELL, OREGON
First things first, the chances of Sewell actually falling that far are slim. But that model represents what I would do and not what the NFL would do, so here at Pick 11, a generation attack falls straight into the lap of New York.
Sewell posted a PFF rating of 95.8 in 2019, which is still the best-rated season of a Power 5 tackle since 2014. At 6-foot-6,325-pounds, seeing Sewell move around in space is pretty amazing - the general athleticism is outside of normal readings. He received a grade of 95.7 as a run blocker in 2019 and was also almost perfect in pass protection. It only allowed seven presses out of 491 snapshots.
Yes, this is a long way for Sewell to fall out of the top 10. According to Treash, the quarterback and wide receiver classes are so rich this year that a stud like Sewell falls so far down. But stranger things happened.
If this miracle happens, Sewell will kick Andrew Thomas into the real attack - or even to the bank. That is, if the giants don't pass it on either.
Kyle Pitts from Florida, Patrick Surtain II from Alabama, and Kwity Paye from Michigan also served on the board. You never know what's going through Dave Gettleman's mind, but don't fret ... Sewell will be long gone by the time the giants are on the clock.
Now for the second round.
42. NEW YORK GIANTS: WR DYAMI BROWN, NORTH CAROLINA
Brown has been a single vertical threat at UNC for the past two seasons. He has accumulated 1,087 yards on vertical targets during that time, ousting Alabama's DeVonta Smith the most in the FBS (over 400 yards more than third-best in the Power Five). While Brown's route tree was incredibly limited with the tar heels, it easily showed that he would have no problem taking on a more diverse set in the NFL.
Brown is undoubtedly an offensive playmaker, but is he the player who can help unlock this dormant offense? The giants have to let him play his game for that to happen. His speed and love for big games won't mean much when asked to perform five-yard patterns. The Giants have to throw the ball deep for Brown to pay off.
Last year the Giants only had two 50 yard deals and one was a 53 yard catch and was led by Evan Engram. The other was when rookie Austin Mack snuck on the sidelines for a 50 yard win. Neither went for a score.
