The 1-6 New York Giants and the 1-5 Oakland Raiders are clearly in a race for the No. 1 pick.
After the Raiders traded WR Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys for a first round draft pick, the Giants followed it up by trading CB Eli Apple to the Saints and have now traded All-Pro defensive tackle Damon ‘Snacks’ Harrison to the Detroit Lions:
More deals: Now the Giants are trading DT Damon Harrison to the Detroit Lions for a fifth-round pick, sources tell ESPN.

The Giants may not be done trading either, according to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan, that there is an impression around the NFL that anyone on New York’s struggling defense could be available in a trade.
Harrison, who is widely regarded as the league’s best run stuffer will look to help a Lions defense that ranks 30 against in the run in the NFL.
