Now what? You've got to figure the Giants will begin looking to improve a defensive unit that finished 31st overall last season.
"I don't know if you will find a starter this year," GM Jerry Reese said of starters found in the mid-rounds on WFAN on Friday morning. "But I do know that in the second and middle rounds, you find a lot of good football players. There's definitely some starters on that board. We just have to find the right one to fit the New York Giants. We always look for value plus need and try to get a combination of both."
Here are areas the Giants should look at in Rounds 2 and 3:

Safety: By standing pat at 19, the Giants watched Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro and LSU safety Eric Reid go off the board before they picked. Both were targets for the Giants, who saw the 49ers trade up to take Reid one spot earlier.
So, now that the Giants took Justin Pugh in the first round, they can still look for a safety in the second round. This is considered a deep safety class.
FIU's John Cyprien is a name to keep an eye on, if he's available at No. 49. Cyprien could go earlier, though. South Carolina's D.J. Swearinger is another safety that could go in the second round. Other safeties that could go in the second and third rounds are Syracuse's Shamarko Thomas, Fresno State's Phillip Thomas, Georgia Southern's J.J. Wilcox and Georgia's Bacarri Rambo.
Defensive end: The Giants have a need at pass rusher, to potentially add someone to the rotation for this season but also to step up in case Justin Tuck, who is entering the final year of his contract, isn't back.
Defensive tackle: The Giants passed on Florida's Sharrif Floyd, who was available at No. 19. But they still can find a good defensive tackle on Friday. While they have a ton of bodies there for this season, Linval Joseph is entering the final year of his contract and Mike Patterson and Shaun Rogers are on one-year deals.
