I think in that scenario you really must consider Barr as well...
1). Houston- Blake Bortles QB Ucf
2). Rams- Khalil Mack OLB Buffalo
3). Jaguars- Javadeon Clowney DE S.Carolina
4). Browns- Johnny Manziel QB Tex A&M
5). Raiders- Sammy Watkins WR Clemson
6). Falcons- Greg Robinson OT Auburn
7). Bucs- Mike Evans WR Tex A&M
8). Vikings- Teddy Bridgewater QB L'Ville
9). Bills- Jake Matthews OT Tex A&M
10). Lions- Justin Gilbert CB Ok St.
11). Titans- Anthony Barr OLB Ucla
12). Giants- Aaron Donald DT Pitts, Eric Ebron TE Unc, or Kony Ealy DE Mizzo.
I still think if we have Matthews or Lewan there at 12, we will run up to the podium and pick him. If Evans is there though, we'd be foolish to let that go. I'd be dissapointed if it played out that Ebron was our best option.
1-CLE: Clowney (Cleveland trades their double firsts to trade up to #1 to pick Clowney)
12: NYG: Ebron or Donald
im just really starting to think we go offense 1st round. like overall i think Donald would be the best pick there and that could set up our dline for a long time, but at the same time our offense was awful last year and we havent done anything to improve playmakers besides Jennings at RB. We're worse at WR and TE than we were last year. unless theyre sold on Kellen Davis at TE or starting a day 2 TE from day 1, then i see them taking Ebron or Evans. its just starting to make so much sense to me for Ebron. McAdoo was a TE coach for awhile, we have a completely new offense coming in which could break away from our traditional inline TE role and maybe see the TE in the slot more, we dont have anyone respectable to start at TE right now, and its our biggest hole going into the draft.
im just not sure the Giants wait until round 2,3,4 to take their starting TE and im starting to believe the Giants new starting TE will be coming from the draft, i just dont see Davis or Robinson as legit options there
1). Houston- Clowney
2). Rams- Watkins
3). Jaguars- Bortles
4). Browns- Manziel
5). Raiders- Mack
6). Falcons- Robinson
7). Bucs- Evans
8). Vikings- Bridgewater
9). Bills- Matthews
10). Lions- Gilbert
11). Titans- Barr
12). Giants- that leaves.. Donald, Ebron, Lewan & Zack Martin
Got another one assuming no trades made:
Realistic projection for a possibility of Evans falling to #12. Don't know if it's all that probable (it requires three of Cleveland, Oakland, Jacksonville, Houston, and TB passing on quarterbacks, and Minnesota and Buffalo both taking QBs instead of Evans) but it could happen...
If your going with the lack of OW approach. Id say pick up Evans in the first, or trade back and pick up Benjamin and an extra pick or two. Then pick up Nikolas or ASJ in the 2/3 round for a starting TE.

Unless they feel like they must sell tickets by grabbing manziel so they can sell/move the team easier I doubt a QB is in their first two days
