1st Round: Antonio Cromartie

Cornerback

FSU

Height: 6'2

Weight: 208

40 Time: 4.41

 

Cromartie would have been a top 5 pick if it weren't for him tearing his ACL last season. He could have also been a top 5 pick if he were to go back for his senior season at FSU. He has rare speed for someone his size, and has been rumored that he ran in the 4.3s before the ACL injury. He has great hands and good ball skills. Is a pure cover man. A physical corner who will support the run. Every good at returning interceptions and fumbles for touchdowns. Has a lot of upside. Only started 25 games in college, so he doesn't have much experience. Footwork still needs work although his hip movement is fluid. Not very consistent at making tackles. May be too aggressive to make the big play and will give up a big play. Has a high risk factor because of his injury. Will replace Sam Madison after this year. Cromartie and Webster will battle to start opposite of Madison this year.

2nd Round: Joseph Addai

Running Back

LSU

Height: 5'11

Weight: 214

40 Time: 4.40

 

Addai is a mold of Tiki Barber. He can replace Tiki when he retires. He has very quick feet and has great timed speed. Will not get run down by safeties and corners when he breaks out a run like Tiki does. Great receiver out of the backfield. Runs with power when going through the middle. Has patience to wake for the hole. Always runs north and south. He is a very good blocker. Can become a team leader. Lots of upside. Has never carried the load in college, so him and Jacobs could share carries and give teams and different style of running. Does not have juke moves. He tore his ACL in 2001. May not make it to us as a 2nd round pick, but not many teams are in need of a running back and there are about 4 or 5 2nd round running backs.

3rd Round: Dusty Dvoracek

Defensive Tackle

Oklahoma

Height: 6'2

Weight: 306

40 Time: 5.03

 

Dvoracek would have been a first or second round pick if it weren't for his fighting and alcohol issues. Has a great motor and never stops until the wistle is blown. He is an excellent pass rusher. Good quickness. He is a very hard worker and has great instincts. Is very productive and both the field and academically. He does not have the size of a run stuffing defensive tackle. May be too aggressive at times and run past the play. Was suspened in 2004 for an off-field incident involving someone being hospitalized with head injuries. Durability may be a concern.

4th Round: Devin Aromashodu

Wide Receiver

Auburn

Height: 6'2

Weight: 201

40 Time: 4.35

 

Aromashodu has great speed for his size. Is very quick and is a good natural athlete. Is a deep threat and had an impressive average yards per catch in college. Can out-jump many cornerbacks in the league for the ball. Has great ball skills to come down with the catch. Is consistent and productive. Can return kicks. Isn't a great receiver for short and intermediate ranged passes. Runs below average routes. Doesn't like contact and doesn't like going over the middle of the field. Could be a good slot or backup reciever in the NFL.

5th Round: Rashad Butler

Offensive Tackle

Miami

Height: 6'4

Weight: 293

40 Time: 5.30

 

Butler has long arms and good size. Has good quickness and is a good athlete. Shows great footwork. Plays with good leverage. Is mobile and could block downfield. Has a lot of upside. Is undersized but can bulk up because of his frame. Needs to get stronger. Could get pushed back by bull rushers. Lacks a killer instinct. Has a problem with ankle injuries. Was overshadowed by Eric Winston in college. Some scouts say Butler may be a better prospect than Winston. Can play left tackle at the pro level.

7th Round: Quinn Sypniewski

Tight End

Colorado

Height: 6'6

Weight: 268

40 Time: 4.80

 

Has excellent size for a blocking tight end. Is very tough and physical. Is an outstanding blocker. Has good hands and doesn't drop many balls. He is smart. May still have upside. Doesn't have great speed. Isn't much of a receiving threat. May only be a situational player in the pros. Has had many injuries in his career. Durability is a major concern. Was in college for 6 years. Will likely be a backup and blocking specialist.

So exactly how many mock drafts are you going to make? Vegas has set the over/under at 11.5....

 

Also, we have 4 RBs that can contribute more than Joseph Addai in 2006. I don't know why people are so insistent upon drafting a RB...

Long and boring weeekend for me, and I change my mind a lot. Addai will be a better contributor that Derrick Ward and Chad Morton, so having him at either 2 or 3 on the depth chart would be reasonable. Having Addai and Jacobs as a 1-2 punch in the future seems pretty dangerous though. Btw I've only made about 5 mocks for the Giants

Unless Addai can master blitz pick-up by the end of preseason (doubtful), as well as return kicks (definitely not), there's 0% chance he contributes more than Ward and Morton.

 

Plus, I think Ward is a more talented player. Fans really underestimate him for some reason. He's a solid player.

Because he didn't have the hype coming out of college and we've never really gotten to see him play.

 

I'm okay with Ward if we need him at some points. He's got decent speed and nice balance.

 

I also think they are more impatient with Ward because they want to see more of Jacobs so if Ward doesn't do good, they want Jacobs to come him.

Another thing people seem to ignore (or not notice) is that Ward plays on several special teams units. In the modern NFL, you need back-ups to contribute in that capacity, and Ward is a good coverage player. He's a useful player, and no less talented that Joseph Addai...

I meant only as a running back

How can you say butler has such great footwork if he ran a 5.3 forty i know that is straight line and nto agilty but consider most prospect run in the 4.9-5.2 range he is at 5.3 and you consider it great????

 

anybody know the numbers on his verticle

footwork as in back pedaling and such, not running 40 yards. He is faster than his 40 time, I watched almost every UM game this year

I'm in favor of drafting a RB at some point in this draft, and I actually like the idea of drafting Addie. Even more, I'd love to see the Giants take a shot on Brian Calhoun if he's still waiting in the wings.

 

I'm not that high on Ward as our #2 or #3 RB. I think overall, he's OK, but it's not like that backup spot has got his name written all over it. If we lost Barber for a long period of time, I would not be comfortable with Ward handling most of the running back duties. But either way, if a rookie is brought in, let there be a competition. If the Giants can find a rookie running back to come in and contribute, and have a chance at becoming a good player down the road with Brandon Jacobs, I'm all for it. It's not like rookie running backs needs to wait 3 or 4 years to get to crack the starting lineup anymore.

footwork has nothing at all to do with 40 time.

 

Footwork is backpeddling and balance...40 time is pure timed speed. They have little to no correlation to each other.

A better gauge of his footwork would be a look at his time in the cone drill......but even that is not all that good at judging an offensive lineman's footwork. The best way to gauge footwork would be through tape, not some time on a scout's stopwatch

Like the first round pick a lot but I don't think he will fall to us

Don't like the second rounder. Contrary to popular beleif on this board, we don't need a running back that badly

Dvorcek is a good pick

Like the fourth rounder...would give us a nice deep threat

You would be better served to look for a linebacker at some point in your mock, rather than an offensive lineman

Berton is a better blocking TE than people give him credit for, and would easily beat out a rookie for the 3rd TE spot(not to mention his solid special teams play). That would be a wasted pick

Who cares how fast his 40-time was? When is an OT ever going to run 40 yards in a straight line?!

 

Watch him play, he has admirable footwork and good agility...

I actually like your picks this time...But NO RB and where are the LBs?

Cromartie - Wont be available when we pick.

Addai - Not good use of round 2. Id much rather see us draft a LB, CB, DT, WR with this pick.

Dusty - Love this guy. Would even take him in round 2.

Arosh - Great WR prospect. Solid 4th round selection.

 

The others, I dont know enough about to comment off the top of my head. I like rounds 3/4 but not round 2. Who do you like in round 1 other than Cromartie?

Actually I read that Addai has the best developed blitz pickup skills of all the RB prospects in this draft.

 

Despite this I'm still not all that high on the guy. Sure he set the world on fire at the combine with his 40 times but did you see his legs? He looks like a sprinter, not a football player. Those toothpicks are going to get snapped in half unless he puts on more muscle. I'd rather take a flier on a guy like Maurice Jones-Drew than spend a second rounder on Addai.
