Round 1: Aaron Donald, DT, Pitt - Great Athlete that Provides Pressure up the Middle! Will take protection away from JPP, Kiwi and Moore. Hankins is a big boy who eats up blockers to keep them off the LBs and defend against the run but doesn’t have the quickness that is required to shoot the gaps and get to the QB like Donald. Put them together and you have a very potent DT tandem. I’ll take the best D-Tackle (2nd best DLmen) in the class to go along with our solid starter of the future any day!
Round 2: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington – Fits the Giants TE Prototype. Massive dude with nasty streak while blocking (if not the most technically sound). Huge mismatch in the receiving game especially in the red zone. Potential to be a top blocker and Receiver. Will help Eli as a Comfort Blanket and improve the run game with his inline blocking. I feel that a TE like this is more important to the NYG than a TE like Ebron who is a Receiver First and foremost
Round 3: Demarcus Lawrence, DE/OLB, Boise State – Could be the Gem of the draft. Great pass rusher to develop in the Giants Rotation with JPP, Moore, and Kiwi. 10.5 sacks last season and 20.5 TFL! Could use some more Bulk on his frame, but still has good size at 6’3’’ 242lbs. Double Dip on the DL in the first 3 rounds to solidify the front 7. Can stand up and rush in 3rd down passing situations to give pressure coming from EVERYWHERE!! With the improvements made to the Secondary and Resigning Beason and signing McClain (to give the giants the most solid LB corp they have had since Pierce/Boley)… Suring up the DL should be a priority.
Round 4: Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers – Still Need offensive playmakers. ASJ helps some lost production. Coleman is a big bodied receiver who can go up and get the ball. Runs very well after the catch for a guy his size (19 ypr for a career). Smart kid with high football IQ. (CRUZ, RR, Coleman)
Round 5: Bryan Stork, C, Florida State – Very Experienced player (rSr) on a very productive team. Big Boy at 6’4’’ 315lbs. Great Pedigree – Rimington Trophy winner. Played against top competition and dominated and was a leader. I like the JDW signing but getting a young guy in there to push him and at worst end up backing him up is a good move. Competition breeds excellence. I think he is a real steal in the later rounds.
Round 6: Michael Campanaro, WR, Wake Forest – This may be higher than he is projected but it’s a selfish pick ill admit. I watched a lot of Camps games over the last two years and was extremely impressed. Built in a thicker Wes Welker frame and with better athleticism. Very quick and fast but also runs excellent routes, especially out of the slot. Also an extremely solidly built and compact runner, very strong (20 reps at 225lbs). With the ball in his hands he looks more like a RB than a WR with decent wiggle and good power. Explosive off the line and extremely intelligent football player. Always knows the situation and where the markers are.
DT – TE – DE – WR – C – WR
Filled a lot of holes with the BPA. Solidified the DL that lost a solid DT and a DE that was an Aging Leader (Joseph/Tuck). Defense looks nasty with LB Corp and Secondary via FA and DL via Draft. Need at TE filled with the best prospect for the Giants style. Helped the run blocking and Pass game with TE pickup. NEEDED more WR help. Got a big bodied “go up and get it” style WR and a Shift quick Slot style WR to compete for the #3 spot with JJ and Mario (personally my money would be on one of the rookies). In FA Reese did a good job picking up a lot of OL help(and we needed it) but the nations best collegiate Center to compete, back up, or possibly start is a good move.
