My Mock Draft 1.0

Doubledeuce22 : 3/15/2019 1:53 pm
Only gonna put my $.02 in on the first 3 rounds for now.

1 (6) - Montez Sweat ER Miss St.


Can't think of a better pick for the Giants defense than this guy. Big, long, and super athletic. Not sure if he'll be here after the combine he had but if he is there I would run up to the podium to take him.

1 (17) - Christian Wilkins DL Clemson

Can play any technique on the DL which will make him extremely valuable to this defense. Great kid and would become a leader for this defense in no time. Seen some crazy comps to this guy (Reggie White, Fletcher Cox, Geno Atkins). Again, I would run up to the podium with this pick.

2 (37) - Dalton Risner OT Kansas St.

Tough and physical blocker. I think he will be an ideal RT in this league with the hope that he translates to a LT eventually (but not necessary)

3 (96) - Emanuel Hall WR Missouri

Huge upside here. Has elite speed and a good build for a WR. A bit of a project as needs to work on route running but great upside is worth taking a chance on especially with teams loading the box against Barkley.

4 (108) - Joejuan Williams CB Vanderbilt
4 (133) - Darius Slayton WR Auburn
5 (142) - Marquise Blair S Utah
5 (143) - Jimmy Moreland CB James Madison (Love this guy. He's small but has a nose for the ball and could be a hidden gem.)
5 (171) - Josiah Tauaefa LB UTSA
6 (180) - Jonathan Ledbetter 3-4 DE Georgia
7 (232) - Jackson Barton OT Utah (6'7" 310 LBs)
7 (245) - Ty Johnson RB Maryland (Kick returner and ST weapon)
I'd swap Burns with Sweat

but other wise I like it.
Cant do Sweat @ #6  
Jim Bur(n)t : 3/15/2019 1:59 pm : link
Too raw & production wasnt there. Drafting that high on potential is scary.

12.5 sacks last year and 10 the year before. The production was certainly there as a pass rusher which is exactly what the Giants need.
Love Wilkins at 17  
adamg : 3/15/2019 2:02 pm : link
and Risner at 37. I really hope that's how it plays out.
Moreland is the only pick I really like  
90.Cal : 3/15/2019 2:02 pm : link
Could live with a few other of your picks but yeah the Moreland pick is the only one I love. I like Moreland and his teammate Robinson, not sure if Robinson is coming out this year though...
Just let Josh Allen get to us  
allstarjim : 3/15/2019 2:18 pm : link
Not impossible.

The scenario is two QBs go in the top 5 picks. Then Bosa, Quennen Williams, then one out of Ed Oliver, Rashan Gary, Greedy Williams, Devin White, or Jonah Williams to go . that leaves Allen to us...go get him. If Allen is gone, and the two top-5 pick QB scenario plays out, then I would take either Gary or Jonah Williams.
Wilkins really doesn't fit in well in a 3-4  
jeff57 : 3/15/2019 2:19 pm : link
He's probably best as 4-3 DT.

Bingo, great production and showed he has room to get even better than that. 4.4 speed at 260. 4.4....Osi looked shot out of a cannon at times, this guy would be even faster.

Do you see a reason why Tampa wouldn't go Josh Allen?

I donít agree with this at all. He literally played every position on the DL. He would be great in a 3-4. Very versatile.
2 picks  
Bill in UT : 3/15/2019 2:24 pm : link
from Utah, huh?
Looks a hell of a lot better  
Red Dog : 3/15/2019 2:34 pm : link
than what all the pro draft guys, media morons, and most BBI posters are doing.

Would like another LB in there somewhere though. The LB depth is scary thin and poor right now.
Emmanuel Hall at 95 is a very very poor choice.  
BlueLou'sBack : 3/15/2019 2:42 pm : link
Study up about the guy and find out why.

I was into him too at one point, but no way I'd use anything before a 5th round pick on him now that I have read more about him.

Otherwise, from the guy's I know a bit about, great draft.

Arcega-Whiteside instead of Hall at 95.

I like the comp of Mike Wallace for him. My idea here is the deep threat WR in Hall, the slot WR in Shepard, and the possession WR in Tate. Good balance for our offense to go along with a great rushing attack. Someone with Hall's speed could really flourish in the play action game.

They very well could. They have Shaq Barrett and Noah Spence along with JPP, they are also transitioning to the 3-4. They could go a couple of different routes, I could see them going Jonah Williams. I could see them trading back to a team fearing the Giants taking their QB (like the Broncos). They themselves could be in on a QB as Jameis has embarrassed the organization and is only under contract for this year...they could look to move on. New regime, too, and for a bit he lost his job last season to Ryan Fitzpatrick (until the magic turned into the tragic).

All sorts of possibilities. If I'm handicapping it I'd say Allen making it 6 would be less than 50% but it certainly is within the realm of plausible.

I like Allen a lot too but I prefer Sweat. Wouldn't be angry about either. If we could top it off with Wilkins at 17 that would be unbelievable. Would be a huge step towards rebuilding this D Line.
How can a guy who's been playing football for 5-8 years

not be good at route running?
Hall, that is

No one had Denzel award going 4 last year but it happened.

Weird shit happens on draft day. People value players differently. People build teams differently.
