The Giants do not leak any of their secretive NFL Draft information but last month, co-owner John Mara might as well have posted on Twitter his team’s objectives when he declared: “We need to re-establish that toughness in front.’’

To that, general manager Jerry Reese might as well have said, “Yes, sir’’ with the way he selected players in the first three rounds.

Last night, in the second round, the Giants took Johnathan Hankins, a mountainous 320-pound defensive tackle from Ohio State who specializes in one thing: Stopping the run. It is no coincidence Mara this offseason stated: “Teams ran the ball against us too easily last year’’ and coach Tom Coughlin identified the shoddy run defense as an area badly in need of an upgrade.

In the third round, the Giants hope they haven’t lost their golden touch when it comes to unearthing pass rushers. They selected Damontre Moore, a 20-year old defensive end from Texas A&M with huge sack production.

The Giants addressed their need for an offensive lineman in the first round, taking Justin Pugh out of Syracuse with the 19th pick. That means the first three picks for the Giants were used to fortify themselves up front — just as Mara said they needed to do. All three also came out of school after their junior year. The two picks yesterday were used to get bigger and more explosive on defense, which was not merely happenstance.
