I thought my last mock draft would be final but Of late i have been feeling a little different about where we should try to aim and what for in this draft. I hope you guys like this scenario.
Round 1-Taylor Lewan- I think he is a player much higher on the Giants board then the people on this board think. Tackle is a position that is hugely reached on every draft and i think this player would not be one. He is compared to Jake Long in many ways. He would be a great addition to add to our improving O-line. his focus can be questionable but he is a light footed lineman who has strength . He also is a huge player who could make space for one of the struggling run games in the NFL.
Round 2- Trent Murphy- Has room to add mass,fluid hips, quick twitch athlete off the ball, good explosion, uses hands well. He is a smart high motor player who can locate the ball well. His only negative in my opinion is his relatively "small size " which could show him to be a tweener. Good run and pass defender. He is 6'5 250 lbs. Stats= 14 sacks 58 tackles
Round 3-Cj Fiedorowicz-My favorite TE in this draft. Has impressive speed for a huge man, can block very well. ran a tenth of a second slower than Ebron. Good body control and soft hands.Very Versatile. He is a can't miss player in my opinion. I think he will outplay ebron and ASJ if he goes to the right team. Why not giants?
Round 4-Walt Aikens CB Liberty
STRENGTHS: Boasts a tapered, athletic build with long arms (32 1/4") and good overall muscle definition. Light feet and loose hips give him the fluidity to handle coverage responsibilities. Asked to play press-man and off-man often for the Flames, showing the athleticism and confidence to handle either role.
Gets an initial jam on the receiver when in press, turning and running with receivers fluidly. Good patience when off or zone but keeps his eyes peeled on the quarterbacks and has a quick burst to close on the ball. Good (perhaps not great) straight-line speed down the sideline, but accelerates smoothly and has a second gear, when necessary.
Highly competitive in run support. Aggressively fights through blocks, extending his arms to initial contact with receivers and is willing to sacrifice his body to knock ball-carriers to the ground. Sound drag-down tackler who rips at the ball. Good vision to set up blocks with the ball in his hands.
*main weakness was speed but he ran a 4.49 and i think thats fine for a loose hips and light feet player who is versatile and full of potential,not to mention can play safety and is a great tackler (60) last year
Impressed at the Senior Bowl with his confidence, quickly proving that he belonged on the same field.
Round 5-Jeff Janis- Everyone loves Lattimer's size and speed combo, why not take a player who has the same ability almost identical actually but has shown way more production on the field?
Round 5-Shamar Stephen DT Uconn- 67 tackles and 3 sacks for a run stopping DT is promising. He is huge with great powerful legs and a broad body. He is a run stop presence who can work in a pass rush with his good handwork.
I will finish this later , hope you like it this far
