The Giants chose versatile cornerback Cordale Flott with the No. 81-overall pick in this year’s draft.
Flott works as a slot cornerback and can also be utilized as a safety with his wide catch radius and speed. The LSU junior is light — 6-foot-2 but only 165 pounds — with a frame that he can easily fill out as he grows older.
Despite the Giants having a stacked defensive line, which now includes the No. 5 pick Kayvon Thibodeaux, they desperately need to improve their secondary. With a player like Flott, who can play at the nickel, corner and safety position, Big Blue may have picked up a cornerstone defender in the coming years.
