Analysis:

The Giants are known to take the “best player available”, but it typically fills one of their bigger needs as well. In each of these rounds the Giants are taking one of the top players on the board, as well as addressing a weakness on the team. It might not necessarily be the primary weakness, but it is a position the Giants need to work on. New York’s offensive line still does a nice job overall, but they have a major hole at RT, adding Eric Fisher would immediately plug that hole, and he could even play LT if William Beatty isn’t retained long term. The linebacker position continues to be a weak spot for New York, and while Chase Blackburn is a nice story, he’s not a top tier starting middle linebacker. Ogletree gives them a very athletic option and one with a lot of upside. Now clearly Eli Manning isn’t a problem with this team, but the Giants back-up quarterback situation is not ideal. Investing in a Mike Glennon, gives them quality depth that they can rely on if Manning were to every get injured. The Giants could see some turnover with their depth at both receiver and cornerback, making those positions secondary needs.
