(From Jackson Thompson): With the first pick in the fourth round, the Cincinnati Bengals swiped Appalachian State linebacker Akeem Davis-Gaithers, which would have been a solid addition to the Giants' linebacking core.

The Giants add UCLA cornerback Darnay Holmes with their fourth-round pick. This marks the Giants' fifth draft pick used on a defensive back dating back to last year's draft. Not only that, in that time Gettleman also added Jabrill Peppers and James Bradberry as significant investments as well. 

The Giants' defensive backfield now has a case as one of the deepest position groups in the NFC East. Whether or not that depth can translate to performance will depend heavily on new defensive coordinator Patrick Graham and how his new defensive schemes utilize the Giants' defensive backs. 

The Giants have run out of chances to add any difference-makers to their pass rush so far in this draft. The best prospects available now seem to be Boise State's Curtis Weaver and Utah's Bradlee Anae, North Carolina's Jason Strowbridge, Notre Dame's Khalid Kareem. None of which would be impact starters on the Giants' defense and would be good for some added depth. But it seems that nearly primary pass-rushing duties will fall Lorenzo Carter and Oshane Ximines. 

The Cowboys follow suit by adding a speedy cornerback of their own in Tulsa's Reggie Robinson II. 

(PT): I don't know if this was mentioned, but with the 49ers trading for Trent Williams, how sick is that offensive line going to look for them? Wowza!

(PT): Anyone else drooling over the thought of the potential three-safety sets Patrick Graham will be able to run with Peppers, Love, and McKinney? I'm having flashbacks to 2011 when that three-safety set was the secret sauce.

(PT) Just checked to see if any tight ends are left. I still think that's a sneaky need for the Giants despite them having six players on the roster. But I have a feeling they go with a receiver in this next round.

(NF) How far will Jake Fromm continue to fall? Will a team like the Patriots snag him up and have him compete...we shall see.

(NF) Curtis Weaver, Bradlee Anae, Kenny Willikes, Alton Robinson, Derreck Tuszka...may all be available for the Giants soon. Will they go EDGE?

(NF) Eagles add a solid swing tackle, who could step in and start at the right side in a pinch. His name is Jack Driscoll, and then the Cowboys add Badger center, who has injury woes, but is talented...his name is Tyler Biadasz...Don't see in division trades too often, but the Cowboys and Eagles just did it.

(NF) Hog mollies, Hog mollies, and even more Hog Mollies...the Giants select Shane Lemieux out of Oregon. This is good value for a very strong guard who may be able to play center. More to come!
