Giant Expectations For 2013 Draft Picks

Created on Apr. 30, 2013 12:12 AM EST

Round 3: DE Damontre Moore, Texas A&M

What to expect: With the interior defensive line taken care of, Reese went to add some depth to the defensive end position next, taking Damontre Moore from Texas A&M. Defensive end was on the list of Giants' needs going into the draft, and Reese has had a long history of drafting defensive ends in the first half of the draft. With Moore, the Giants get another pass-rushing end that can strengthen an already strong defensive line.

Who they could have gotten instead: Logan Ryan, a cornerback from hometown school Rutgers, was taken 83rd overall by the New England Patriots, two picks after the Giants took Moore.

Potential impact: The Giants are also hoping that Damontre Moore can contribute to the defensive line right away along with Johnathan Hankins. Despite the team's needs at the linebacker position, the way that Reese went after defensive linemen in the draft suggests that, above all else, the Giants' priorities will always be strengthening the defensive line.
