GM Joe Schoen has moved on from safety Xavier McKinney and really didn’t address a safety in free agency aside from signing Jalen Mills who has played both safety and cornerback. Joe Schoen could still look at the remaining free agents available before the draft or after the draft, but at the time of this article there’s still a strong possibility the Giants could invest in a safety in the draft. . Here are my top 5 Safeties in the 2024 NFL draft.

  1. Tyler Nubin (Minnesota) 6’1/205: Nubin has the athleticism to be a top tier safety in the NFL. Nubin possesses good ball hawking skills, along with being a solid tackler. Projected RD2.
  2. Kamren Kinchens (Miami) 6’0/203: Kinchens is an exceptional athletic with the ability to make big plays at any time. Kinchens plays both man and zone well with a ball hawk mentality. Kinchens has been used in the box and also covering the middle of the field. Projected Late RD2. 
  3. Javon Bullard (Georgia) 6’1/200: Bullard is a cornerback/safety hybrid that will likely be looked at as a multi-facet defensive back playing both positions is certain packages. Bullard is a highly instinctive, tough and plays physical with excellent awareness. Projected Late RD2.
  4. Renaldo Green (Florida State) 6’0/186: Green displays exceptional reaction speed with a competitive edge. Green is solid in man coverage and is a strong open field tackler. Green plays with good anticipation and is often always around the ball. Projected RD3.
  5. Calen Bullock (South Carolina) 6’2/188: Bullock is a former WR in High School and possesses good hands to go along with his ability to anticipate well. Bullock has good speed and plays very physical in both in the run and passing game. Bullock exhibits leadership qualities and is a natural ball hawk. Projected RD3.

GM Joe Schoen could wait until Day 3 to draft a safety as there are several prospects that would fit into what Schoen is looking for. I believe the safety class is better than many experts projected it to be as I can see many cornerbacks entering the draft, transitioning over to play safety in the NFL. If I was a betting man, I would expect the Giants selecting a safety on Day 3.
