Bleacher Report (http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1142030-keith-rivers-to-giants-full-7-round-mock-draft-following-trade?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=newsletter& utm_campaign=new-york-giants#/articles/1142030-keith-rivers-to-giants-full-7-round-mock-draft-following-trade) has a great mock. I would love for the draft to unfold this way.

The New York Giants (http://bleacherreport.com/new-york-giants) have reportedly (https://twitter.com/#%21/MikeGarafolo/status/190141909677780992) come to an agreement with the Cincinnati Bengals (http://bleacherreport.com/cincinnati-bengals) to trade their fifth-round pick in the 2012 NFL (http://bleacherreport.com/nfl) draft for 2008 first-round pick linebacker Keith Rivers.</p>

Rivers,
the ninth selection in the 2008 NFL draft, has been underwhelming since
being taken by the Bengals, falling short of expectations and often
injured. The acquisition of Rivers does potentially address the Giants
biggest need this offseason, should Rivers or current Giants linebacker
Michael Boley move to the inside linebacker spot.</p>

Regardless of
the direction the Super Bowl champions may choose to go there, one thing
appears certain: the Giants will not draft a linebacker in this yearís
draft.</p>

The Rivers pickup shifts their focus going into the draft
at the end of this month and enables them to answer some other questions
heading into the 2012 NFL season.</p>

Letís take a look at how things are shaping up with just a few weeks to go leading up to the draft.</p>

<h2 class="">Round 1, Pick 32: Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State</h2>

The departure of longtime New York Giants right tackle Kareem
McKenzie and the uncertainty surrounding the future of the left tackle
position has really put Big Blue in a bind.</p>

Jerry Reese is not
the type to address the offensive line in the first round, but he would
be a fool to ignore the dramatic regression the Giants offensive line
took in 2011.</p>

At 6í7Ē, 323 pounds, Adams is a physical specimen
with raw ability entering the NFL. He has shown great footwork, though
he can be a bit heavy on his feet, and utilizes his long arms to ward
off rushing defenders.</p>

Adams can immediately fill the right tackle
void left by McKenzie in his rookie year and may be a better fit there
than on the blindside.</p>

Cliff Harris could be a steal if he is still there that late in the draft. How does this look to you?

According to my sources (who am i kidding, it's the internet), the Giants have two fourth rd picks (one compensatory) and no 5th rd pick (Rivers trade).

So currently it's Rd 1, 2,3,4,4,6,7.

One of the best mocks? Maybe I'm crazy, but I think we can do MUCH better.....

Dislike the prospects, individually.

Brandon Thompson, while he has incredible consistent explosion off the ball, isn't really what we're looking for inside. I think the giants need a 3-technique...a guy who can get skinny and collapse the pocket with quickness. I'm tired of the power rushing types

AJ Jenkins.. i love the way he hand catches, settles into zones, and is a great deep threat. I have questions about his ability to be quick in and out of his breaks... and he skipped the 20-yard shuttle at the combine which is just lovely. According to some scouting reports he didnt even see much man coverage which isnt surprising considering its the big ten. I like options like marvin jones or criner better. Granted, they come with their flaws as well but their college production didnt come mostly from catching bubble screens and running wide open against zone coverages like Jenkins

I looove lucas nix. Not as high on polk as some but i think there is some decent value at 63

I was thinking that also. I don't care for Adams much at all. Them saying Jenkins could slide into the #3 wr right away proves they know little of how the GMEN operate.

I personally hate that mock. Just a matter of opinion though.
