From top to bottom, this mock is pretty realistic.

The B and W with current players next to them are for Best and Worst case that they consider the player will become.

 

Edit - I'm going to clean this up a little so it is easier to read.

 

 

Round 1

Pos Team Player Comments Best Case/Worst Case

1 DET Matt Stafford, Georgia, QB Grudgingly, Stafford goes number one overall. There's no doubting his ability, but time will tell if he ever realizes his great potential. B- Jay Cutler

W- Kyle Boller

 

2 STL Jason Smith, Baylor, OT A top heavy class of tackles allows the Rams to select the franchise left tackle to replace aging, and often injured, Orlando Pace. B- Tony Boselli

W- Chris Samuels

 

3 KC Aaron Curry, Wake Forest, OLB With Cassel now a Chief, KC is able to take the top defender in the draft. Curry is one of the most talented football players I've ever seen--PERIOD. B- Demarcus Ware

W-Julian Peterson

 

4 SEA Michael Crabtree, Texas Tech, WR Crabtree's recent injury has many wondering if he'll slide. With no value tackle available, the decision for Seattle is still easy. That will not be the case if Monroe or J. Smith slide. B- Michael Irvin

W- Keyshawn Johnson

 

5 CLE Brian Orakpo, Texas, OLB An explosive pass rusher who could produce ten plus sacks as a rookie. A no brainer for a team that needs a lot of help. B-Julius Peppers

W-Adewale Ogunleye

 

6 CIN Eugene Monroe, Virginia, OT With Jason Smith's stock rising, Monroe slides a little. Cincinatti certainly doesn't mind. B-Walter Jones

W-D'Brickeshaw Furgeson

 

7 OAK Derrius Heyward-Bey, Maryland, WR Yes, a shocker! What else is new for Al Davis. Heyward-Bey ran a 4.3 at the combine. Davis can't resist that kind of speed. B-Joey Galloway

W-Charles Rogers

 

8 JAX Michael Oher, Ole Miss., OT Jacksonville lands the franchise tackle they desperately need, but takes a slight risk on Oher. Great tangibles, but must improve consistency. B-Orlando Pace

W-Joe Staley

 

9 GB BJ Raji, Boston College, DT With the hiring of Dom Capers as the new DC, Green Bay needs a monster nose tackle to anchor its new 3-4 scheme. Look no further at 330 plus pounds. B-Kris Jenkins

W-Barry Cofield

 

10 SF Mark Sanchez, USC, QB The 49ers need a left tackle and a rush linebacker. None are available that pose the value Sanchez does. The Alex Smith era is officially over. Sanchez is perfect for this offense. B-Carson Palmer

W-Trent Edwards

 

11 BUF Everett Brown, Florida State, DE Buffalo desperately needs a pass rusher, as they finished near the bottom of the league in sacks. Brown is a gifted athlete with a huge upside. B-Mario Williams

W-Jamaal Anderson

 

12 DEN Rey Maualuga, ILB, USC The ideal 3-4 inside backer. Maualuga will play side by side with newly signed Andre Davis in the middle of Denver's new 3-4. B-Junior Seau

W-Antonio Pierce

 

13 WAS Andre Smith, Alabama, OT A need pick here. The Skins badly need a right tackle and Smith, despite his apparent immaturity, is still the best one in the draft. B-Jeff Otah

W-Leonard Davis

 

14 NO Vontae Davis, Illinois, CB In a weak draft for DB's, New Orleans takes arguably the best one in the draft. Could be Malcolm Jenkins here instead. B-Nnamdi Asomugha

W-Will Allen

 

15 HOU Malcolm Jenkins, Ohio State, CB Texans fill a huge need here, and finally have a corner to play opposite Duante Robinson. B-Champ Baily

W-Antoine Winfield

 

16 SD Knowshon Moreno, Georgia, RB A chain reaction at the top of the draft causes Moreno to slide. It looks like LT may be traded or released. Moreno is perfect for the Charger system. B-LaDainian Tomlinson

W-Brian Westbrook

 

17 NYJ Josh Freeman, Kansas State, QB Huge arm and huge upside. The Jets QB situation is sad, to say the least. With all the value corners off the board, Freeman is their guy. B-Ben Roethlisburger

W-Jim Druckenmiller

 

18 CHI Michael Johnson, Georgia Tech, DE Pure speed and agility! A sack specialist, which the Bears have a great need for. A freakish athlete with an enormous upside. B-Javon Kearse

W-Gaines Adams

 

19 TAM Chris Wells, Ohio State, RB The new regime in Tampa is committed to building an explosive offense. Wells is a productive bruiser with a burst. Could be a two-back system with Cadillac Williams. B-Larry Johnson

W-Lendale White

 

20 DET William Beatty, Connecticut, OT Trade From Dallas: Beatty will protect a rookie quarterback and a huge investment. He can play both left and right tackle, but should start at left in week one. B-Matt Light

W-Levi Brown

 

21 PHI Brandon Pettigrew, Oklahoma State, TE McNabb needs this for Philly to stay in the hunt. There are no wide outs available at 21 that pose good enough value to pass up the best TE in this draft. B-Jason Witten

W-Algae Crumpler

 

22 MIN Alex Mack, California, C With Matt Birk gone, the Vikings must replace him with an equal to keep that explosive running game intact. Tough to do, but Mack can do it. B-Andre Gurode

W-Matt Birk

 

23 NE Aaronn Maybin, Penn State, OLB Slightly undersized backer who plays big with speed off the edge. The Pats OLB's aren't the youngest group in the league. Maybin will fit well in the New England 3-4, and produce some much needed sacks. B-Shawn Merriman

W-Manny Lawson

 

24 ATL Brian Cushing, USC, OLB Cushing is a complete linebacker and will eventually replace aging Keith Brooking. B-Lance Briggs

W-Scott Fujita

 

25 MIA Larry English, Northern Illinois, OLB This draft is not short on rush linebackers, and the Dolphins are thrilled. They have more pressing needs, but won't find better value. B-Joey Porter

W-Karlos Dansby

 

26 BAL Jeremy Maclin, Missouri, WR Baltimore needs a speed receiver badly and are thrilled that Maclin slides to 26. B-Chad Johnson

W-Devin Hester

 

27 IND Hakeem Nicks, North Carolina, WR With Marvin Harrison's release, the Colts must fill a huge hole. Nicks is perfect for Indy's system with great hands and runs precise routes. B-Reggie Wayne

W-Muhsin Muhammad

 

28 PHI Ebon Britton, Arisona, OT Trade From Carolina: Both Eagle starting tackles are in their mid 30's. Britton can play either side, and will replace Tra Thomas eventually. B-Jordan Gross

W-Ryan Diem

 

29 NYG Kenny Britt, Rutgers, WR Britt is 6'4" and highly athletic. If he runs in the 4.4 area at the combine, he will go higher. Britt will begin filling the void left by Plaxico Burress, if Plex does not return, or will be a nice compliment to him. B-Plaxico Burress

W-Reggie Williams

 

30 TEN Peria Jerry, Ole Miss, DT Albert Haynesworth is gone and must be replaced. Jerry is the best candidate. B-Tommy Harris

W-Broderick Bunkley

 

31 ARI Max Unger, Oregon, C Running back is an obvious weakness, but no back will be productive in Arizona without upgrading the interior O-line first. Unger can play either G or C. B-Kevin Mawae

W-Ryan Kalil

 

32 PIT Tyson Jackson, LSU, DE An excellent player against the run, and perfect for Pitt's 3-4. Jackson will eventually replace aging Aaron Smith. B-Justin Tuck

W-Philip Merling

 

Round 2

Pos Team Player Comments Change

 

33 DET Paul Kruger, Utah, DE Detroit looks to improve their pass rush with sack specialist, Kruger. Electing to go offense with its first two picks, Kruger is the best pass rushing end available and should start from day one.

 

34 NE Darius Butler, Connecticut, CB Trade From KC: Filling a huge need here, Butler is the most complete corner on the board.

 

35 STL Sean Smith, Utah, S The Rams land the top safety in the draft. Smith possesses freakish measurables, at 6'4 and 215 lbs, he ran a 4.53 at the combine and is a converted corner, if you can believe that.

 

36 CLE Percy Harvin, Florida, WR Inconsistent play from Braylon Edwards and the other Cleveland wideouts demands that the Browns draft another weapon for young Brady Quinn. Harvin slides into round two, possessing ideal value. 17

 

37 SEA Jason Meredith, South Carolina, OT Meredith is a fast riser who had an excellent combine. He can start day one on the right side, and will add depth on the left, protecting an injury-prone quarterback. 28

 

38 CIN Duke Robinson, Oklahoma, G The best guard in the draft with first round talent. A beast of a run blocker which will improve that sub-par offensive line. Robinson is the steal of the draft, to this point. -

 

39 JAX DJ Moore, Vanderbilt, CB Slow combine times have all the corners sliding in this draft. Moore is no exception, but is an excellent value at 39 for a team that needs corners--plural. 14

 

40 OAK Connor Barwin, Cincinatti, DE Barwin is one of the few players that actually helped himself at the combine. His athletic ability impressed everyone, especially Al Davis. Another speed player that is extremely versatile. He's played everything but head coach at Cincinatti. 25

 

41 GB Clint Sintim, Virginia, OLB Sintim is the best rush linebacker on the board and fills a huge need for the converting 3-4 defense. 1

 

42 BUF Eric Wood, Louisville, C The Bills fill a glaring hole with this pick. Wood will provide some stability inside for the Bills and can play anywhere between the tackles. 23

 

43 SF Clay Matthews, USC, OLB Matthews is a versatile linebacker who can rush the passer. He ran a better 40 times than most of the rush linebackers that went ahead of him. 13

 

44 MIA Louis Delmas, Western Michigan, S Trade From Washington: Parcels and company draft another small school player with big talent. Delmas reminds me a little of a younger Bob Sanders. He needs to add some weight, but is a big hitter with range and ball skills. 1

 

45 NYG James Laurinaitis, ILB Ohio State Trade From New Orleans: Laurinaitis slides to New York in round two allowing them to replace aging Antonio Pierce. He adds much needed spped to the Giants LB corps. 15

 

46 HOU William Moore, Missouri, S Filling another hole in the secondary, Houston takes the 223lb safety from Missouri. Moore is a big hitter with excellent speed. He should start week one. 22

 

47 NE Patrick Chung, Oregon, S Trade From San Diego: Need pick to replace Rodney Harrison. Chung is in the same mold, a big hitter who plays smart. 5

 

48 DEN Ron Brace, Boston College, DT A dominant nose tackle is an absolute must when converting to the 3-4. We'll find out if Brace will become a dominant player, but he will certainly occupy space. 4

 

49 CHI Phil Loadholt, Oklahoma, OT A mammoth tackle at over 340 lbs! He should start on the right side, opposite Chris Williams, from day one, bringing the "Bear" back to Chicago's running game. 1

 

50 CLE Cornelius Ingram, Florida, TE Trade from Tampa Bay: With Winslow now gone, there is a glaring hole at TE. Cleveland nabs the tight end with the biggest upside in the draft. Had Ingram not missed the entire '08 season, he would have been a top 15 pick. A solid combine reminded scouts who he was. 15

 

51 DAL Robert Ayers, Tennessee, DE Chris Canty is gone and Dallas needs to get younger defensively. Ayers has the size to play in Dallas' 3-4, but will add some speed. 4

 

52 NYJ Brian Robiskie, Ohio State, WR Robiskie vaulted himself with an impressive combine. He is a technically sound, sure-handed receiver with decent speed. He is the son of an NFL receivers coach and is well schooled. The Jets will need to replace Lavernius Coles, and Robiskie should be able to play right away. 13

 

53 PHI Donald Brown, Connecticut, RB The second most complete back in the draft behind Moreno, Brown will provide quality depth for the Eagles and could replace Brian Westbrook within two years. 2

 

54 MIN Alphonso Smith, Wake Forest, CB The Vikings defense lacks corners with ball skills. Smith is probably the best "ball hawk" in the draft. Need pick. 14

 

55 ATL Jared Cook, South Carolina, TE Atlanta nabs a speed tight end with a huge upside. Cook is a better blocker than most realize and will give Matt Ryan another reliable red-zone target to go with Roddy White. 10

 

56 MIA Andy Levitre, Oregon State, G Some have him rated ahead of Duke Robinson as the top guard in the draft. He will join Jake Long on the left side in Miami. Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams couldn't be happier. 1

 

57 BAL Mike Mickens, Cincinnati, CB A physical corner in press coverage, Mickens was a four year starter for Cincinnati. At roughly 6'0", 190 lbs, he has an excellent frame and should add weight. Injury concerns have caused his slide into the late second round. 5

 

58 NE LeSean McCoy, Pittsburg, RB The value is too great to pass up McCoy here. The addition of Fred Taylor gives McCoy a year to grow and learn. McCoy is the long term replacement to aging Kevin Faulk on third down. 27

 

59 CAR Sen'Derrick Marks, Auburn, DT Extremely high value pick. Marks would have been a first rounder had he stayed in school another year. Some "motor" issues but tons of ability. 6

 

60 NYG Chase Coffman, Missouri, TE Finally the receiving tight end to replace Jeremy Shockey. The Giants weren't the same team without Shockey. Coffman is a huge target at 6'6" and will give Eli a reliable third down target. 14

 

61 IND Evander Hood, Missouri, DT The Colts have to get stronger at the point of attack, on both sides of the ball. Hood is always in the backfield, and will improve that porous run defense while providing some added pressure on the passer. Perfect for Indy's scheme. 3

 

62 TEN Juaquin Iglesias, Oklahoma, WR A solid wide receiver who runs precise routes and has consistent hands. Iglesias is an excellent open field runner and should be able to start at WR2 by mid season. 9

 

63 ARI Herman Johnson, LSU, G A 380 lb monster guard! To find a consistent running game, Arizona will need more than good backs. -

 

64 PIT Rashad Johnson, Alabama, S A highly intelligent player with great intangibles and superb ball skills. If the World Champions have a weakness on defense, free safety is it. Not anymore! 4

 

Round 3

Pos Team Player Comments Change

 

65 DET Macho Harris, Virginia Tech, CB Harris is a physical player who is excellent in run support. He, like most corners in this class, lacks blazing speed but will be excellent in zone coverage. 17

 

66 STL Jarius Byrd, Oregon, CB The Rams need quality corners and Byrd is an excellent value at 66 overall. He should be able to crack the starting lineup by midseason at worst. -

 

67 KC Troy Kropog, Tulane, OT KC needs to solidify that offensive line. LT Branden Albert is a natural guard. Kropog could be the answer on the left side but will start on opening day on the right. 12

 

68 SEA Keenan Lewis, Oregon State, CB Lewis is a big physical corner at 6'0" and 208 lbs. He is good in zone or bump, and will be great against the run as well. Fills a huge need. -

 

69 DAL Jason Phillips, TCU, ILB Trade from Cleveland: I really like Phillips. He could be the most underrated prospect in the draft. Dallas needs to replace and upgrade Zach Thomas. Phillips will do that immediately. -

 

70 CIN Shonn Greene, Iowa, RB The biggest steal of the draft! A slow 40 time has Greene sliding into round three. He should start from day one in Cincinatti and, barring injury, be a 1000 yard back. With Cedric Benson (who) gone, Greene should win the job outright out of training camp. 33

 

71 OAK Fenuki Tupou, Oregon, OT Athletic tackle who can also play guard. A perfect fit for the Raiders rushing attack. -

 

72 JAX Fili Moala, USC, DT Excellent quickness. A gap penetrator who will pressure the quarterback. Played some 3-4 end in college, but at this point in the draft, he can be bulked up and could eventually become a dominant DT. -

 

73 GB Mithc King, Iowa, DE Going to the 3-4 requires new personnel and King is the best 3-4 end on the board. He is a high-motor guy with excellent quickness. He will need some time to adapt to the 3-4, as he was a DT in college. Too athletic to pass on in round three. Green Bay loves the big ten! -

 

74 SF Xavier Fulton, Illinois, OT Athletic tackle with good feet. Fulton drops due to injury concerns, but will add much needed depth at tackle for San Francisco. -

 

75 BUF Trevor Canfield, Cincinatti, G Big physical guard with a mean streak. Canfield will try to fill the void left by Derrick Dockery's departure. 29

 

76 NYJ Mark Parson, Ohio, CB Trade from N.O.: Parson is an under-the-radar guy with big upside. He has excellent cover skills and is a sure tackler. Absolute need pick. -

 

77 HOU Chris Baker, Hampton, DT Imposing and athletic physical speciman who ran just over five flat in the forty and jumped over 35 inches...at a mere 328 lbs. He will instantly improve Houston's run defense. His stock is still rising, I'm sure. -

78 SD Kraig Urbik, Wisconsin, G LT may have lost a step, but interior line play is why he has been less productive. Urbik is a steal at 78, and will immediately add at least .2 to LT's average per carry all by himself. -

 

79 DEN Lawrence Sidbury, Richmond, OLB Raw talent with all the tangibles. Very fast off the edge but will need lots of work on technique. -

 

80 WAS Danell Ellerbe, Georgia, ILB An excellent tackler who will provide athleticim and versatility. Injury concerns have him sliding, but lack of quality inside backers keep him in round three. -

 

81 TAM Jarron Gilbert, San Diego St., DT A truly amazing speciman. At 6'5" and 288 lbs, he ran a 4.87 at the combine. Obviously, he'll need to add about 20 lbs to be an every down player in the NFL, but that will happen by the end of this year. Huge upside and should be drafted higher. -

 

 

82 DET Travis Beckum, Wisconsin, TE Trade from Dallas: A need pick here. Beckum will be a solid NFL tight end and, like most of Detroit's draft picks, he should start right away. -

 

83 GB Asher Allen, Georgia, CB Trade from NYJ: A good hitter and zone coverage guy. Could have gone much higher had his 40 time been better. Has experience as a returner also. -

 

84 CHI Sherrod Martin, Troy State, S Mike Brown in done. Martin is another smal school guy with lots of ability. He is a hitter and has that big play ability that Brown had is his prime. -

 

85 PHI Jonathan Luigs, Arkansas, C Extremely high value pick. The deep and highly talented center class bears fruit in the third round for the Eagles. What a steal! There will be several instances like this in April, due to the overall depth of this draft. 23

 

86 MIN Louis Murphy, Florida, WR Very fast receiver with good size. I actually think he's a more polished receiver than his Florida teammate Percy Harvin. Excellent value at 86. Several receivers slid. None farther than Murphy. Minnesota's gain. 47

 

87 MIA Pat White, West Virginia, WR/QB Miami should finally be able to choose one of its two young quarterbacks, to go along with Chad Pennington, and let everyone else go. Pat White is a capable #3 quarterback who will maintain a "day job" as a wideout. Do I have to mention the Wildcat possibilities? Good receiver and save a roster spot. Good pick Bill! -

 

88 BAL Tyrone McKenzie, South Florida, OLB McKenzie is a ferocious and intense player who is very versatile. The Ravens need depth at LB and McKenzie can play three different roles in their scheme. 27

 

89 NE Darry Beckwith, LSU, ILB Tenacious heavy hitter. New England needs youth at depth at linebacker. In a couple years Becwith will make an excellent tandem with Jarod Mayo. -

 

90 ATL Chip Vaughn, Wake Forest, S A very gifted athlete who was nothing but a playmaker in college. At over 220 lbs, Vaughn will replace future HOFer Lawyer Milloy. I actually have Vaughn rated as a second round pick unlike most. Great value here, if you asked me. -

 

91 NYG Gerald McGrath, Southern Miss, OLB McGrath will add speed and depth the the Giants slow group of linebackers. He can play any of the three linebacker spots, but will need to add weight to be able to play every down. In a couple years, he could become a great pro. -

 

92 IND Captain Munnerlyn, South Carolina, CB A need pick here. Depth at corner is an issue for Indy, and Munnerlyn is a very talented cover corner. Some work ethic concerns have him sliding some, but the value is excellent at 92.

 

93 JAX Nate Davis, Ball State, QB Jake Delhome needs some competition to improve. If he does not, Davis will be waiting in the wings with more athleticism and a better arm. -

 

94 TEN Antoine Caldwell, Alabama, C

First team All-American, ahead of Mack, Unger, and the rest. Caldwell is an extremely intelligent technician who will eventually replace Kevin Mawae.

 

95 ARI Andre Brown, NC State, RB I think this is a steal at 95, though some have Brown going later. If you watched the Senior Bowl, you know what I'm talking about. He is a 224 lb running back who can catch, block, and run. Had he played at Georgia, he'd easily be a first round back. Great for the Cards offense.

 

96 PIT A.Q. Shipley, Penn State, C Underrated prospect due to relatively small frame and short arms. Very intelligent player with fast motor. Great technician.

I like the Laurinitis, Chase Coffman, and McGrath picks too. Coffman is a controversial pick because Boss is a great TE and we all like him. But if he's there, that adds a lot more options in the receiving game with two TE sets and great depth at the position.

 

This draft is pretty much how I'd like it to go. I'm not completely sold on Laurinitis as a pro, I think I'd rather see Sintim sitting there at 45, but overall, I really like this mock, even with what they did with opposing teams as well.

"The Giants weren't the same team without Shockey?"

 

Um... weren't we a top-five offense for most of the year, while Shockey played in five games all year? :WTF:

 

Listen, they are correct. We weren't the same team without Shockey. We were more cohesive with fewer drops and less on-field shenanigans!

:lol:

 

But yeah, the spirit of that comment makes no sense. Still, I wouldn't mind that pick at all.

60 NYG Chase Coffman, Missouri, TE Finally the receiving tight end to replace Jeremy Shockey. The Giants weren't the same team without Shockey. Coffman is a huge target at 6'6" and will give Eli a reliable third down target. 14

terrible assessment

This is one of the worst mocks i've seen #1Chase Coffman is slower then Boss so i don't see the upgrade or any reason why we would take Coffman(and we don't miss Shockey even though i do the team don't) and if we passed on Rashad Johnson i would be pissed no matter how much any of you think C.C Brown is Ronnie fucking Lott hes not and we still need a safety. And then for other teams no way N.O goes corner they signed Jabari Greer and drafted Tracy Porter (who they wouldn't give up for Shockey last year). Tyson Jackson is going to go way before the 32nd pick and i could go on and on and oh yeah no way Seattle gets Crabtree after signing T.J be such a wasted pick.

Most people think Seattle is so enamored with Crabtree that the Houshmanzadeh pickup won't matter. Seattle has had a lot of turnover at the position... Deion Branch and Nate Burleson can't stay healthy... they actually do need another receiver, even with Housh.

 

Are you absolutely certain Coffman is slower than Boss?

 

I can take any mock and find things wrong with it, but this is one of the better ones I've seen.

 

I think you just really want Rashad Johnson, don't get your hopes up, they will not be drafting a safety that high.

Your right most mocks you can nitpick at any of they picks the whole draft is a guessing game until the actually day, i've seen many a time that a team just goes way off the mark of need or player(i.e Philly drafting Kolb in round two?) just total surprise so yeah overall not bad, and i do think Al Davis could take DHB that high or trade the next 45 first round picks to Denver for Jay Cutler something crazy they are losing their patience already with Russell so honestly he could try to get Cutler or take Sanchez or if Stafford falls past #1.

I like the part where we grab Laurenitis......he looked awesome at the combine

 

He had a pretty awful combine, man. That's why he dropped. He ran like a 4.8 40, and only put up 22(the lowest of his group of LBs) bench presses.

 

That's why they are saying he falls to us.

 

Regardless, he was a beast in college on the field and brings attitude and spark to the Giants defense. Something they were lacking toward the end of last season.

 

Plus, I love Ohio State defensive players. And his dad is Animal of the Road Warriors.

Yeah i love Laurinatis the kid has great passion for the game, he can start right away on the strongside and eventually be groomed to take Pierces spot in the middle which could be as soon has 2010. The guy has 110+ tackles every year, great in coverage( :rock: ) which seems to be odd for our linebackers but i would love "the little animal" has a Giant

God, that mock draft is terrible.

 

I would stay far away from James Laurinitis..far far away.

 

I'd be uber pissed if the Giants drafted a tight end in the 1st two rounds. I mean, I guess you could

argue that the Giants missed Shockey after Burress shot himself...but Shockey's bark is alot bigger

than his bite.

 

Kevin Boss will do just fine.

Well, you know, Golfin', I wouldn't be pissed with getting a guy like Coffman. Because really this mock had us getting 2 linebackers in the first 4 picks, and it had us getting a WR with the top pick. So with our whole defense set after that (other than a back up safety, which has value in the middle rounds) it makes sense to spend these picks on offense. Now, where on offense? Not on running backs, per se, because we have 3 good ones (although you can argue for one more). Not on receiver, because you have 6 of them now with the draft pick, and the Giants will not carry more than 6 on the roster. Not on QB, because we have the three that will be going into next year with already. So really, we can afford to add depth to TE, although I would like to see us build depth on the OL as well. So if we're nitpicking, maybe use that pick on OL instead of TE, but that can still be done during the draft AND getting a guy like Coffman.

 

I like Coffman. He is a great talent who will fall because of his foot injury. He is a top receiving TE. What would be bad about having him and Boss on either side of the LOS? It's just more depth at TE, and quality depth, at that. I like Darcy Johnson, too.

 

I agree with you somewhat on Laurinitis. Something bothers me about him but it's not something I can really substantiate. Like I said before, I'd like to see us get Sintim for the SAM instead of Laurinitis. But it's the fact that the mock had us taking two linebackers with the first 4 picks that I liked, not necessarily the fact that it was Laurinitis. If you look at other mocks, some of them have us taking a DE in the first round, and that is just stupid. Or they'll have us taking 2nd round talent in the first... I've seen a couple of mocks where we take Laurinitis in the first, that is not happening.

 

This mock is pretty realistic. Obviously, it won't go down just like this because Reese is going to move up, I don't think there is much question about that.

God, that mock draft is terrible.

 

I would stay far away from James Laurinitis..far far away.

 

I'd be uber pissed if the Giants drafted a tight end in the 1st two rounds. I mean, I guess you could

argue that the Giants missed Shockey after Burress shot himself...but Shockey's bark is alot bigger

than his bite.

 

Kevin Boss will do just fine.

 

Laurinaitis stock dropped by about a thousand points after his horrible combine but I honestly think he's a good football player...IDK how well that will translate to the pro level

i will only accept laurinatis on this team if he paints his face and yells 'what a rush' after every sack

 

LMAO, you're the man AA. Imagine, he comes out on the field during his first game rocking spiked shoulder pads...
