  • 7-round New York Giants mock draft: No deals, and Sam over Saquon

    https://www.bigblueview.com/2018/4/8...am-over-saquon

    Excerpt: ":Each Sunday I explore different 7-round mock draft scenarios for the New York Giants. I have looked at all sorts of trade scenarios, some realistic and others that probably have no chance of happening. Let’s play it straight today. Here is a mock where I rejected all trades, and just made picks where the Giants are scheduled to make them.

    Here’s what happened, using the latest big board from Matt Miller of Bleacher Report. Round 1 (No. 2) — Sam Darnold, QB, USC

    If the Cleveland Browns were going to leave Darnold there — the ‘Fanspeak’ simulator gave them Baker Mayfield at No. 1 — you knew I was picking him. Until someone convinces me otherwise, this is also what I think the Giants would do in this scenario. If Darnold is on the board at No. 2, as of today I believe he is going to be a Giant. Round 2 (No. 34) — Will Hernandez, G, UTEP

    A hog molly to help complete Dave Gettleman’s offensive line makeover. He’s a plug-and-play starter at right guard.

    Other players considered: LB Malik Jefferson, EDGE Sam Hubbard, OT Kolton Miller, RB Sony Michel, WR D.J. Moore Round 3 (No. 66) — Rashaad Penny, RB, San Diego State

    The Giants seem to have little interest in bringing Orleans Darkwa back, and Jonathan Stewart isn’t a long-term answer. Penny might be.

    In his 2018 Draft Guide, Dane Brugler of NFL Draft Scout writes:
    While not naturally explosive, Penny’s best attributes are his patience and ability to transition his momentum in his cuts to string moves together. And although he doesn’t look fast, few were able to close ground in pursuit, especially as a return man. His most glaring weakness comes in pass protection due to poor technique and awareness, which resulted in quarterback sacks on film. Overall, Penny might not have a true dominant trait, but he checks off the necessary boxes to be a reliable NFL starter.
    Other players considered: RB Nick Chubb, DL Taven Bryan, OT Desmond Harrison, WR Dante Pettis, EDGE Josh Sweat, OT Orlando Brown, OT Martinas Rankin Round 3 (No. 69) — Taven Bryan, DL, Florida

    Under Jerry Reese, the Giants always seemed to get the third round wrong. Can Dave Gettleman get it right? I’m taking a swing at a guy projected to be a better NFL than college player. When I watch Bryan I see power, explosion off the snap, and relentless effort. A good defensive line coach could turn him into something special.

    Brugler says:
    Overall, Bryan is still in the development phase with his rush plan and run-defending skills, but he has the athleticism of a defensive end, the power of a nose tackle and the potential of a NFL starting three-technique – his flashes are similar to former Ole Miss defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche on the field (29th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals), displaying the athletic traits and upside of a first-round pick, but the consistency and discipline of a second-round prospect."

    need a cornerback in there badly. Love first 2 picks, although Hernandez may not be there and the miller pick. But no cornerbacks?

      I have seen Bryan mock in the first round and at worse second round. Hernandez ,also the same. Ragnow in the second would be more realistic. Third round i would take N. Chubb if available can block for QB. Third round [ Rams ] LB D. Leonard or Leon Jacobs. If both are taken then a CB.

        Yeah, I don't see Hernandez making it to the 2nd. Do folks think Penny will last to the 3rd? I think he's a pretty talented back. Would be a very good 1 - 3 for us if it went that way though.

            2. If he did and we took Penny over him, I would be furious.
