Giants hosting Derek Stingley Jr., Abraham Lucas on top-30 visits


The New York Giants will continue their pre-2022 NFL draft visits over the weekend and into next week with at least two more prospects arriving in East Rutherford.

LSU cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. will be one of the two. He is expected to hold a top-30 visit with the Giants in the coming days.

Stingley Jr. is widely considered one of the best cornerback prospects available in the draft, perhaps second only to Cincinnati’s Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner. The Giants also previously met with Gardner, which could indicate at least a partial focus on the cornerback position. And with James Bradberry still on the trade market, that interest makes sense.

In addition to Stingley Jr., the Giants will also host Washington State offensive tackle Abraham Lucas.

As Raanan alludes, Lucas is viewed as a second- or third-round developmental right tackle with high upside. Here’s what’s draft guru, Lance Zierlein, had to say about Lucas:

Teams will need to balance the run game limitations against his potential success in pass protection when placing draft value on Lucas. He’s too upright as a drive blocker and too lumbering to get to lateral and second-level blocks. In pass protection, however, his length and power make him a wider target to circumvent for rushers, while his patience and core strength make him tougher to counter. His need for tight end help when protecting against true edge speed could be a catalyst for a move inside to guard. Lucas is scheme-limited but has eventual starting potential at either right tackle or guard.

The fact that Lucas is earning a top-30 visit is interesting, but the Giants are clearly leaving no stone unturned in their quest to repair the offensive line once and for all.
