Pete's 2011 Giant Mock Draft v2

Post  Big_Pete on Wed Oct 20, 2010 9:49 pm

Here is my current thoughts on a mock draft for the Giants for next year, based on my current thoughts of the Giants team needs.

Let me know what you think

1. OT Anthony Castonzo, Boston College (6-7, 295, 5.20)

2. CB Curtis Brown, Texas (6-0, 184, 4.50)

3. LB Kelvin Sheppard, LSU, (6-3, 240, 4.70)

4. TE/FB DJ Williams, Arkansas (6-2, 251, 4.62)

5. Traded to Minnesota for Sage Rosenfels, Darius Reynaud

6. RB Roy Helu, Nebraska (6-0, 220, 4.55)

7. RS Leon Berry, Mississippi St (6-0, 205, 4.50)

I expect a new CBA will be in place and I think the Giants while not active in free agency, will resign our key players - Smith, Boss, Bradshaw, Koets, Cofield, Kiwanuka, Grant. Bulluck, Blackburn, Wilkinson and M Johnson could/should be back if reasonable deals can be done.

I don't see interior line as being a need. Koets looks like the future replacment for O'Hara and should be resigned. At guard we have Snee and Andrews, plus Seubert who has wound the clock back plus we have Petrus, Meredith and Boothe (if resigned).

DT is not a likely to be need. Canty is playing great football as is Cofield (who should be resigned), plus we have Bernard who has been solid plus we have Linval Joseph.

Wildcards could be DE or S depending on the injury prognosis of Matthias Kiwanuka and Chad Jones.

Bradshaw will likely be resigned and he is developing a good 1-2 punch with Jacobs. We could look to upgrade our #3 RB, but that won't be a priority.

I like the idea of TE DJ Williams at FB, but we have Pascoe already, if he continues to improve we are set, although we would still need a blocking TE.

A lot will depend on who is available. I wouldn't rule out a LB early if there is a particularly good talent available.

LB is a spot we could find good value. The jury is still out on Sintim, Wilkinson and Blackburn are free agents (although I expect Blackburn to be back) and while Bulluck may be resigned, he isn't young.

Not sure the Giants would take an o-tackle in the first. A first rounder won't likely sit the bench and the Giants are still committed to Beatty.

A linebacker in the third may be ok but at this point would like to see one in the first or second rd.

Definately nice to see a running back/kick returner picked up.

fair comments

as for LB, I did look at Akeem Ayers in the first round.
Sheppard is a genuine talent.

But the LB situation is not urgent. Goff is coming into his own at MLB and Bulluck should be back. Boley is firmly entrenched as a starter and the light can still come on for Sintim. We also have Dillard and Blackburn and Wilkinson could both be resigned cheaply. There is plenty of depth.

As for Oline. Sure we have Beatty in the wings. But Diehl has had problems in pass protection this year, plus we likely have to replace McKenzie after the 2011 season. Don't forget wile Diehl is under contract through 2014, he is 30 this year. It makes sense to bring in an OT to develop for the future.

There may be good OT options we can get in Later rounds, but Beatty and either Castonzo or Sherrod would give us a pair of bookend OTs for the forseeable future.

We don't have many major needs going into the draft. Mostly it is depth/succession planning that needs to be done. After QB and Passrushers a franchise left tackle is an ideal pickup.
