The Giants have a total of 10 picks in the 2023 NFL Draft. Two of the selections are compensatory picks and two from trades. The team selects No. 25 overall in the first round to kick off its NFL Draft order. Here’s a complete list of the draft picks for the Giants and general manager Joe Schoen.

The team had the Chiefs’ compensatory pick at 100th overall due to the trade for wide receiver Kadarius Toney but ended up shipping that pick to the Raiders for tight end Darren Waller this offseason. The Kadarius Toney trade did get the team a sixth-round pick. They had traded their original sixth-round pick to the Houston Texans for cornerback Keion Crossen in 2021.
New York Giants 2023 Mock Draft and Team Needs
The team has already made some moves in free agency by signing wide receivers Paris Campbell and agreeing to terms with Darius Slayton. The Giants released wide receiver Kenny Golladay after he wasn’t a useful target for quarterback Daniel Jones. Jones signed a huge four-year contract extension, while the organization hit running back Saquon Barkley with the franchise tag.
Barkley had his best season since his rookie year. He ran for 1,312 yards and 10 touchdowns. He had over 240 carries for the first time since that rookie year back in 2018.
Head coach Brian Daboll and his squad could be looking to boost the secondary in round one. The Giants need depth at the position and Deonte Banks from Maryland is one of the top cornerbacks in the draft. It’s likely the team will also target some depth at wide receiver and some defensive players in the front seven.
The team might go after a wide receiver in Round 2 such as Cedric Tillman from Tennesee. He missed a lot of time in 2022 but caught 12 touchdown passes back in 2021. In Round 3, linebacker Dorian Williams from Tulane could be a solid option after tallying over 300 tackles and 9.5 sacks in his college career.
