The last time the New York Giants visited Detroit, the G-men effectively ended the coaching era of Jim Schwartz by knocking the Lions out of NFL playoffs with a 23-20 overtime victory on December 22, 2013.
Giants general manager Jerry Reese knew he had plenty of work to do, and he plugged a ton of holes in free agency. Now comes the hard part — the NFL Draft.
The Jets have a league-high 12 picks heading into Thursday night’s NFL Draft. Don’t be surprised if they have a few less before they even make a selection.

Fortunately for New York, which picks 12th, this draft is so deep that whomever Reese grabs should be a potential starter from Day 1. Here’s a look at where the Giants might go in the draft.
A number of mock drafts have the Giants taking North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron with their 12th pick on May 8. They may be right. But Big Blue has other needs, too.
It’s one thing to demand rebound seasons from Eli Manning, Victor Cruz and Jason Pierre-Paul, but the Giants must have a powerful draft class if they are going to get back to the postseason.
