As we continue our mock draft extravaganza, let’s take a look this week at one of the team’s outside of the Packers own division that has been a thorn in their side in recent years, the New York Giants. Outside of the one win over the Giants a few years ago at Lambeau Field, the Packers have been unable to solve the Giants. The Giants will draft in between 10-15 in each round of the 2014 draft, and they have many needs to fill. So here it is.
Round One: Mike Evans/WR/Texas A&M- The Giants have many needs on offense. One of them is the wide receiver position. Evans would make a lot of sense for the Giants here. Eli Manning likes to throw jump balls, Mike Evans is 6’5” and 231 pounds. Evans is also known as a jump ball specialist. There you go.
Round Two: Xavier Su’a-Filo/G/UCLA- The Giants also have a huge hole to fill on the interior of the offensive line. Often times teams will simply pass rush up the middle and get to Manning with ease. This big boy from UCLA would go a long way to solve that.
Round Three: Weston Richburg/C/Colorado State- Remember what I said about the interior of the Giants offensive line being a problem? Well, here is another big boy to help solve that problem.
Round Four: Jaylen Watkins/CB/Florida- The Giants could also use some depth at cornerback. Watkins would be a nice fit.
Round Five: Marcel Jensen/TE/Fresno State- Like cornerback, the Giants could use some depth at tight end. Jensen is projected to go right where the Giants are going to draft in round five.
Round Six: Conner Shaw/QB/South Carolina- The Giants should spend a draft choice and upgrade the depth at quarterback. Shaw is a gamer who would find a way to get it done if he had to for any extended period of time.
Round Seven: Storm Johnson/RB/Central Florida- The Giants once had an elite running game built on backs drafted in the later rounds. This would help them get back to that.
