After providing No. 2 overall draft pick Saquon Barkley

with a big road grader to open some holes for the running game Womens Adam Humphries Jersey , the New York Giants went to work to improve their pass rush and stop the run.The Giants grabbed mammoth guard Will Hernandez of UTEP with the second pick of the second round on Friday night, a 345-pounder who moved into the Miners starting lineup as a redshirt freshman and started all 49 games at left guard.New York switched to defense in the third round, taking edge-rushing linebacker Lorenzo Carter of Georgia with the 66th pick overall and bullish tackle B.J. Hill of North Carolina State three selections later.The second choice came from Tampa Bay in the deal that sent defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul to the Buccaneers.In all three cases — four, if you count the Giants taking Barkley in the first round — general manager Dave Gettleman said it was value meeting need. That's something the Giants desperately needed coming off a 3-13 season."Dave and I were talking leading up to the draft, and I really believed we were going to get a lot better," new coach Pat Shurmur said. "I can tell you with the four picks, we have gotten a lot better."The Giants considered Hernandez a first-round choice, and they felt Carter and Hill had second-round grades, said Gettleman, who felt Barkley was the best player in the draft.Gettleman said Hernandez was the top player on the Giants' board when the second day started."You know I love the hog mollies and this guy really has a lot of talent," Gettleman said of Hernandez. "He is a very athletic kid for his size. He can run, he can pull and he plays very smart."Shurmur said that Hernandez will give the Giants strength in the middle and he is good in both the run and pass games."This is a guy who has a really good chance to play very early in his career," Shurmur said, adding he will be tested at both left and right guard.Hernandez also has a mean streak the Giants like. Gettleman described him as "cranky."Hernandez believes he can step in and play right away. He laughed when asked about his on-field demeanor."On the field I am a completely different person than I am off the field," Hernandez said. "I take football very serious. It's more than a game to me. It's who I am. So whenever I get on that field I take it with all seriousness."The Giants offensive line struggled last season with injuries and poor play. The team ranked No. 26 in the league in rushing, averaging 96.8 yards and finishing 31st in points scored.New York lost center Weston Richburg and left guard Justin Pugh to free agency. Gettleman signed New England Patriots left tackle Nate Solder and Jacksonville guard Patrick Omameh as free agents and planned to move 2015 first-round pick Ereck Flowers from left tackle to right tackle.Flowers Authentic Justin Evans Jersey , however, is not taking part in the organized team activities and the recent minicamp, both voluntary events.Brett Jones played well at center after Richburg was sidelined by a concussion. The guard positions are wide open with John Jerry, Jon Halapio and John Greco all returning to challenge Hernandez and Omameh.The 6-foot-5 Carter had 165 tackles and 14陆 sacks in 54 games with the Bulldogs. He forced seven fumbles, recovered six and had 54 pressures."He played his best football in his biggest games," Shurmur said. "That's what really showed up. Special teams, he'll have an immediate impact there."Gettleman said the Giants tried to trade up to get him and could not get a deal done. They still got him.Hill had his best season in 2017, recording a career-high 57 tackles. He finished his career with 26陆 tackles for losses and nine sacks."B.J. Hill, he's tough to block," Shurmur said. "He is good against the run. He is kind of a little bit sneaky getting his pass rush, so we'll get a pass rush out of him as well."Tempering expectations for Vita Vea The Buccaneers have been without 2018 first round pick Vita Vea for the entire preseason. He went down with a calf injury early in training camp and has been out ever since. He appears to be on his way back, but once he does return, what can the team really expect from him?It’s obviously never ideal for a rookie to miss his first training camp. There are so many valuable reps to be had throughout the month of August, especially for a rookie that still has some developing to do.’s draft profile noted that Vea “lacks feel for double teams and blocking schemes” and is “too quick to default to brute force over technique.” Those are the types of things that coaches and veteran teammates could have worked on with Vea during training camp. There isn’t much time in game week practices that will be devoted to development. So what does that mean for the rookie? With that time gone, it’ll be tough for him to burst onto the scene quickly in 2018.Even before the injury, there didn’t seem to be any type of grand expectations for the Washington product. The thought seemed to be that he would rotate in with veterans Beau Allen and Mitch Unrein , easing his way into the NFL game. He was expected to get time on run-stopping downs, while developing and working his way into pass-rushing situations. But now? All of that is still the case, but probably even more so. Vea has to catch up, which means the Bucs and their fans will have to be patient.After last Sunday’s practice, head coach Dirk Koetter seemed both frustrated and encouraged with Vea’s situation. In one breath, he said: There’s some frustration there. Not having your No. 12 overall pick at practice for a month isn’t ideal. But even still, Koetter seems to think that Vea, being a defensive tackle, will be in a better position to step in and contribute once he’s healthy:It seems plausible that a defensive tackle will have an easier time picking things up than one of those other positions. Vea will show flashes, likely more in run-stopping situations early on, but patience will be the key. Fans can’t expect a ton from him this year. It’s more than likely going to be frustrating at times, especially when guys like Derwin James and perhaps Minkah Fitzpatrick are having early success. But careers in this league are far more of a marathon than they are a sprint. Vea might not be a world-beater in year one, but all hope isn’t lost because of that. Just try to have patience.
