Elijah McGuire posted 1,000-yard rushing totals in each of his last three seasons at UL-Lafayette, including a 1,127-yard campaign in 2016 that netted him second-team All-Sun Belt honors.

Nats cleanup hitter Ryan Zimmerman is on pace to win the Triple Crown. His 8th inning blast to deep left center - which landed squarely in the Seven Line Army and cut the Mets lead to 4-3 - gives him 11 bombs on the season, tied for most in the bigs. He also leads the majors in batting (.402), and RBI's (26).

The Jets addressed their need for an edge rusher in the fifth round (181), picking Dylan Donahue from Division II West Georgia. He's 6-foot-3, 248 pounds, which makes him a tweener in the Jets' 3-4 scheme. Is he a defensive end or outside linebacker? He set a school record with 25.5 career sacks. He will turn 25 in August.

After two years of junior college, Dylan Donahue dominated at West Georgia, setting the Gulf Coast Conference single-season sack record (13.5) in 2016. His 25.5 sacks in two seasons are also a school record.

Derek Rivers drew all the headlines opposite him, but Avery Moss was productive in his own right at Youngstown State. The former basketball player had 59 tackles (17.5 for loss), 10.5 sacks and four forced fumbles in his final season.

Avery Moss got the call from the Giants while at a hospital in Las Vegas where he was visiting his grandmother who recently suffered a stroke. He says she is getting better and was "excited" he was drafted.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants selected DE Avery Moss in the fifth round (167th overall). Moss has a checkered background and missed the 2014 season but is an athletic pass rusher.

Leggett gives Jets size at TE

Jordan Leggett is an underrated receiver with enough speed to produce after the catch and make plays down the seam. He needs to get stronger and play with better technique, but he has the frame and length to develop into an effective inline blocker.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Some players to watch for the Giants in Round 5: LB Anthony Walker, G Damian Mama and Isaac Asiata, OT Will Holden and Roderick Johnson, CB Brian Allen and K Zane Gonzalez.

ESPN Stats and Information  

First Team All-ACC selection Jordan Leggett flourished on the biggest stage at Clemson, with a combined 12 catches for 173 yards in two national title game appearances for the Tigers. He left Death Valley as the program's all-time leader in catches (112) and yards (1,598) by a tight end.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Finally … the Jets took a tight end in the fifth round (150), selecting Clemson's Jordan Leggett. This was a major need for the Jets, whose tight-end production the last two years ranked as the worst in the NFL. Leggett (6-foot-6, 255) is an ascending player who finished with 112 receptions, 1,598 yards and 18 touchdowns in his career. He needs to work on his blocking and there are some durability concerns.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Chad Hansen was a one-year wonder at Cal, but that one year was awfully good. After catching just 19 balls in 2015, he snagged 92 for 1,249 yards and 11 scores in 2016.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets took Cal WR Chad Hansen with their fourth-round pick. So this means they've picked two receivers and two safeties, an odd combination. Hansen, an Idaho State transfer, posted big numbers last season – 92 catches, 1,249 yards and 11 touchdowns. He's a size/speed prospect – 6-foot-2, 4.53 in the 40. Most of his production came on vertical routes and bubble screens. Are the Jets sending a message to injured veteran Eric Decker?

Giants add back who can contribute in passing game

Wayne Gallman is a versatile back who has good agility and pass-catching ability. The biggest knock on his game is that he lacks power, but he's a hard-nosed banger of a runner and could add good value for a team in need of a versatile athlete to share the workload.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Wayne Gallman had more total yardage (1,740 to 1,285) as a sophomore than as a junior, but his touchdown total rose from 14 to 17 during Clemson's championship season.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants take Clemson RB Wayne Gallman in the fourth round (pick 140 overall). Power back. Good complement to Paul Perkins. May eliminate the need for LaGarrette Blount.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants pick soon and RB Wayne Gallman still on the board. So are guards Damian Mama and Isaac Asiata.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Ryan Zimmerman's RBI single gave the Nats a 1-0 lead over the Mets. It also gave him 25 RBI's, tied for most in the majors with teammates Bryce Harper and Daniel Murphy. Needless to say, Washington's offense is clicking.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants would have picked here at 130, but this is the pick that got downgraded due to the Ben McAdoo walkie-talkie thing. They got busted down to No. 140.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan must really like the quality in the fifth, sixth and seventh rounds. He traded down for the third time, sending their fourth rounder (125) to the Rams for a fourth rounder (141) and a sixth round pick (197). If you're keeping score at home, they have one pick in the fourth round, two in the fifth, three in the sixth and one in the seventh. This should help them rebuild the bottom of the roster, assuming he picks the right guys.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Some names to watch in the late rounds for the Giants: RBs Samaje Perine and Jamaal Williams, OT Julien Davenport, G Isaac Asiata and Damian Mama, K Zane Gonzalez.
