Hey everyone, continuing the inundation of mock drafts this time of year, I thought I'd share my results from a draft I did on another forum, with 31 other people participating. (similar to ours here). My results for the Giants were:
1 - 23: David Njoku, TE, The U
2- 51: Caleb Brantley, DT, Florida
3 - 87: Cameron Sutton, CB, Tennessee
4 - 140: Kareem Hunt, RB, Toledo
5- Caleb Brantely trade
6 - 207: Avery Gennesy, OT, Texas A& M
7 - 241: Tashawn Bowers, DE, LSU
My own reaction:
I'm thrilled with the first 4 guys, I think they fill needs for us. I know it seems Njoku won't be our pick in real life, but he provides such another great weapon not only now, but down the road. Brantley is a disruptive pass rusher from the DT spot, compliments Snacks nicely. Sutton can be groomed as the NB and provides great return ability. I'm a huge fan of Hunt, bruiser who has good balance and doesn't fumble.
Gennesy and Bowers are projects at positions of need.
I traded our 5th to move up 4 spots to grab Brantley. In hindsight, I think he would've fallen to 55, and it's my one real regret. In a deep draft, I wish I didn't give up the 5th rounder, but it is what it is. I'm happy with how it played out.
