The New York Giants made 10 selections in the 2019 NFL Draft. Three of those came in the first round, and their top pick was a bit of a surprise.

Below is a look at how each of those 10 draft choices by the Giants fared in college.

1

Daniel Jones, QB (Duke) - First round, sixth overall

As a redshirt junior in 2018, Jones had his best collegiate season. In 11 games, he completed 60.5 percent of his passes for 2,674 yards, 22 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. He also ran for 17 scores in the last three years. Sports Illustrated reported on how Giants GM David Gettleman has defended the pick amid some scrutiny.

Dexter Lawrence, DT (Clemson) - First round, 17th overall

A rather large man (listed at 6-4, 340 lbs.), Lawrence is more of a run-stopper and he saw his sack total go down in each of his three seasons at Clemson (6.5 as a freshman, two as a sophomore, 1.5 as a junior).
