Mock the Mock

My last mock sucked, but the addition of Alec Ogletree inspired me. Hopefully this one is more interesting.

2 QB Josh Allen

With Eli established as the franchise quarterback who showed potential big game ability still in his last postseason showing in Green Bay. We might be set at quarterback but he's old and not as crisp in the regular season. We need a succession plan at QB and have a singular opportunity to land one. Josh Allen has the highest ceiling of all the quarterbacks in this draft. And we just added two quarterback coaches in Shurmur and Shula. Webb would seemingly add a competitive atmosphere given his work ethic. It's the ideal scenario for Allen who doesn't have to be thrown to the wolves without proper coaching up.

34 RB Sony Michel

The backfield needs a bell cow or at least a clear number 1 option. Gallman is great as a COP back, but Michel can be given 15-20 touches a game and be an impact player like Alvin Kamara was for the Saints. Adds a playmaker to a unit that lacks one.

66 C Frank Ragnow

An offensive lineman drops who can be a potential starter, whether that's at guard or center or tackle doesn't matter. Maybe Jamarco Jones drops or Orlando Brown or a Frank Ragnow. Ragnow would be great as a center or right guard, assuming we go left guard and tackle in free agency.

102 LB Shaquem Griffin

Maybe he goes earlier after the combine he had. But we can't have enough LB depth right now, especially a guy who is so fast and may be able to play safety or in the slot too. Fred Warner or Nwosu would be great here.

139 WR Dylan Cantrell

I think you could play Cantrell on the same side as Shepard or Odell inside or outside, he's a decent blocker for a receiver. He reminds me of Brandon Marshall. Gettleman might like to add a tall receiver to a unit that was devastated last year. Hopefully adds some complementary depth.
I like the positions

drafted but not the players. Would prefer Rosen or Darnold over Allen, and Michel disappointed at the combine. Would prefer some of the other RBs over him, even in round 3 or 4.

if barkley goes 1

Im good. i LOVE your first four picks....id argue darnold/allen there but love the first four
I don't see  
ryanmkeane : 3/9/2018 4:56 pm : link
the Michel/Kamara comparisons. I don't think Michel is nearly the athlete Kamara is.

I’d love to have either Rosen or Darnold, but for some reason, my initial thought is I don’t think Rosen is a NYG consideration at all at 2, which I think would be a mistake.
I like Rosen

the best in this class of QBs. Pick 33 may get a better Oline player.
And the offense

Still sputters because they have no OL

You’re not gonna get all 5 long term solutions this spring, but what if they come out of it with Norwell and Billy Price? Yes they’d have to stop gap with (likely) Flowers and 2 other guys, but the line would be improved with those 2 over anything they’ve fielded over the last 5 years.
sorry to say I don't like three of your first four picks

1) Not a fan of drafting any QB where accuracy is his top fault. Especially at #2 overall. I've also heard some medical scuttlebutt that teams are loking very hard at his rebuilt shoulder that has all ijds of pins and staples holding it together. Stay tuned on that front.

2)Sony Michel has one of the worst balls ecurity ratios in the NCAA amd frankly he didn't run as fast as I would have liked given he's a bit of a height weight tweener.

4)As mmuch of a feel good story as he is imo Griffin doesn't come into play until Round 5 at the earliest. Top of Round 4 is too soon for my taste.
Interesting draft  
DavidinBMNY : 3/9/2018 8:16 pm : link
I don't think Allen is a #2 pick for the Giants. in order of preference I'm going Darnold then Barkley. My hope is a trade down to get some more depth.

I like the RB and OL but I would expect a DL to get drafted in addition to OL.

We could really use 3 or four more top 100 picks.

I think Michel is a better pure rusher. He might not be quite the athlete.
Not bad  
Rjanyg : 3/9/2018 9:20 pm : link
But if I had to pick a QB I think Rosen or Darnold over Allen although I love his upside. So here is my mock:

1. Josh Rosen QB UCLA
2. Will Hernandez OG UTEP
3. Rashaad Penny RB San Diego St.
4. Lorenzo Carter OLB/Edge Georgia
5. Mason Cole C Michigan

I'd sign up for that haul
