From the Giants Daily Blitz Blog in case you haven't seen it already.
So who should we get if this is our list to pick from? I say Barkevious Mingo.

Time to get out the No. 1 jerseys and make sure the suits are tailored. The NFL Draft attendees list is in. At least 19 top prospects are scheduled to attend the annual selection show beginning April 25 at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan.
This is according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who released the names this morning:

Feel free to delete if at all useless. Just want to know who everyone here thinks we should get IF these were our choices. I say Barkevious Mingo.

Rhodes if I have to pick one.
Well, these really aren't our choices. Theoretically, 18 of those guys are off the board when we pick. In reality, other picks might creep in allowing someone who shouldn't be there at 19 to drop to us.
Well if any of these guys were available I'd say Luke Joeckel without a doubt.
But since that won't happen, I'd say you're realistically looking at none of those guys. Either they go before we pick (Rhodes, Ansah, etc ...) or we wouldn't pick them (any of the QBs).
Our first pick most likely will be something like Desmond Trufant (CB), Damontre Moore (DE) or Alex Okafor (DE) in my mind.
P.S. - Mingo is a tweener who is projected to play OLB in a 3-4. He definitely doesn't have the size for a 4-3 DE.
Boy it'd be a dream come true to watch Bjoren Werner go and shake hands with the commish and recieving the GIANTS cap...

I agree, but with hunt, Other than his age I'm not sure why his hype & "upside" aren't higher.....

Some teams going to fall in love & grab him in the 1st, I understand the draft invite...
Do you think there could be a possible QB run prior to our pick at 19 resulting in someone falling that we expected not be there similar to when we got Prince? I am hoping it happens and Ansah falls but I honestly think that it is not going to happen with him. I think Rhodes and Ansah will be gone when we pick but someone has a chance to there that we thought would definitely be gone by our pick.
