EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants traded down in the draft for the second straight day and selected Georgia edge rusher Azeez Ojulari with the 50th pick overall Friday night.

The Giants were supposed to pick 42nd in the second round but moved down in a deal with Miami for the Dolphins’ pick and an extra third-round pick in 2022.

The son of Nigerian immigrants, Ojulari had 8 1/2 sacks, four forced fumbles and a fumble recovery this past season. He had 14 sacks over the past two seasons.

The Giants took Florida receiver Kadarius Toney after a trade with Chicago Thursday.

In round 3, the Giants took UCF CB Aaron Robinson with pick No. 71.
