In this story:

As the NFL Draft approaches, teams are building out their draft boards to prioritize which prospects they’ll value more than others. At Giants Country, we take the same approach by ranking prospects in terms of overall talent - not accounting for positional value that would normally slide players around boards.

There are players on this list that the Giants will not draft due to not being in proper range or not valuing that position high enough, here is the Giants Country Top 50 Big Board with positional rank in parentheses:
