Here are the six players that will make up the Giants' 2017 draft class.

First round, No. 23 overall: Ole Miss tight end Evan Engram

Comps to former Jets TE Dustin Keller in Nolan Nawrocki’s NFL Draft Preview . . . Lacks the size of others in the class, but his 4.42 40 at the Combine was wide receiver-worthy . . . Would play more of a flex position than in-line . . . Set the school career record at Eli Manning’s alma mater for catches and receiving yards in his first three years . . . As a senior he added 65 catches for 926 yards and eight TDs.

Second round, No. 55 overall: Alabama defensive tackle Dalvin Tomlinson

Had 62 tackles, 5.5 for a loss, with 3.0 sacks as a senior in 2016  . . .  Has good size and athleticism in the middle  . . . Has torn both of his ACLs but has played without incident for three years . . .  Smart player, was admitted to Harvard and earned two degrees at Alabama . . . Was the first wrestler in Georgia HS history to win three heavyweight state titles . . . Was also a soccer player in high school and played striker.

Third round, No. 87 overall: Cal QB Davis Webb

Webb transferred to Cal from Texas Tech last season as a grad student. His task: Replace last year’s No. 1 overall pick, Jared Goff. While he didn’t go first overall like his predecessor, Webb still threw for 4,295 yards and 37 touchdowns. Webb won Senior Bowl MVP in January and showed a few promising tools in Mobile, but accuracy issues and inexperience in a pro-style system portend a big learning curve.

Fourth round, No. 140 overall: Clemson RB Wayne Gallman

Fifth round, No. 167 overall: Youngstown State edge rusher Avery Moss

Sixth round, No. 200 overall (via Tennessee Titans): Adam Bisnowaty, OT, Pittsburgh
