The picture gets ever so clearer as the days pass now. Still, the last few wks, prospects do tend to shoot up and down draft charts every yr, bringing with it, possible change in your mock drafts. A example is Weston Richburg, who some now say, could go in the 1st rd. He started the yr as a 7th rd prospect, and seemed to settle into that 2nd-3rd range, and now, boom, after proday and scouts seeing him up close often, his stocks risen to possible 1st rder. Injuries and new or found out old off field issue sometimes come to light as draft nears, and also late in FA'cy pickups could play a part in your mock changing.
Anyhow, heres my latest Mock Draft for the Gmen
1). Aaron Donald DT Pittsburgh- Makes to much sense, and has great positional value and overall value for the Giants. 3tech with top notch pass rush ability is huge need for Giants.
2). Kyle Van Noy OLB BYU- I love this kids style of play, as he lays it all out there every snap. He might not be ideal fit in a base 4/3, but his great instincts help him, even in pass coverege, and I think with more coaching, could even get alittle better in coverege, plus he'd be a help as a pass rusher. He made a impression at Sr Bowl with his ability to close in the pass game and deflect away passes. Seen him compared recently to Chad Greenway.. Van Noy will get 1st rd production in the pros, I believe.
3). DaVante Adams WR Fresno St.- I just love this kid. He reminds me of a poor mans Andre Johnson, because of his size and build, as well as his hand eye corrdination and ability to track a football.. Like Johnson, I think Adams is gonna be able to beat you many ways, going deep, over the middle, short to intermediete, 3rd down and redzone target..etc Adams has deceptive speed as well and can certainly beat you deep.
4). Will Clarke DE W.Virginia- Been a fave of mine for awhile. Like Kareem Martin, hes a bigger DE, but both can also get to the passer. Clarke good at using that length to get his arms up to disrupt passing lanes, and has enough athletic ability to go with his size, to consistently get in the backfield..
5). Jerick McKinnon RB Ga.Southern- A dynamic athlete who had success as a running QB while at Ga.Southern, as well as RB, and even picked off a couple passes playing alittle CB. McKinnon has a 2nd gear and can runaway from defenders. He'd make for a nice change of pace weapon at RB.
5). Xavier Grimble TE USC- A fairly athletic TE, whos got some upside, and was underutilized in USC"s attack, Grimble is tough after the catch, and can make the tough catch with defenders around him, and hes solid run blocker, who has a chizzeled frame.
6). Gabe Ikard C Oklahoma- Very good football IQ, who has expierence at both G spots as well as C, and gets off the ball quickly, and is solid blocking on the move, and has a nice stout frame. A good looking sleeper who could come in and challenge for the starting job..
