The Giants were supposed to have the fourth pick of the second round on Friday night, but they made a pair of trades to add picks later in the draft before finally making their first selection of Day 2.

Wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson was selected with the 43rd overall pick. Robinson transferred from Nebraska to Kentucky before the 2021 season and caught 104 passes for 1,334 yards in his only season at the SEC school.

He joins Kenny Golladay, 2021 first-rounder Kadarius Toney, Sterling Shepard, and Darius Slayton in the Giants receiving corps. There has been chatter about possible trades involving Toney or Slayton, although the latest word has been that Toney is unlikely to be moved.

Robinson joins first-round picks Kayvon Thibodeaux and Evan Neal as members of General Manager Joe Schoen’s first draft class. The first-round picks earned high marks and we’ll see if the latest pick draws the same kind of reviews.

  1. Schoen got too cute with his trade downs. They could have gotten Booth for a badly needed CB spot, and instead wind up with a receiver that doesn’t really meet their needs. Schoen gets an A+ for Day 1, but he’s not off to a great start here on Day 2.

  2. Too many needs and mediocre talent on this team to forgo drafting trench players in these higher rounds. Unless it’s a LB, OL or TE, it’s a miss. Adding another running back is also critical, with Saquon’s injury problems.
