The NFL Network’s Mike Mayock was asked on a conference call yesterday what he felt the Giants should do at No. 12 in the first round of this year’s draft:
“I think wide receiver and tackles make a lot of sense right there and I think regardless sitting at 12, you’re either going to get the third tackle or the second or third wide out if you were interested in that wide out.
So I think Taylor Lewan is a guy that can get there and if he got there, I’d jump all over him. And if all three were gone, you could still make a case for Zack Martin. I think he’s a better ‑‑ he’s very similar to Justin Pugh who they took a year ago but I think he’s a better prospect, and then I’d also be wide open to looking at that wide receiver position and again, looking at Marqise Lee, Mike Evans, I think sitting at 12, they are going to get one of those three guys, or could get one of those three.”
John Fennelly, Lead WriterWise man. The Giants really can’t go wrong here. They will have a lot of players that are still high on their board to choose from. The offensive tackle prediction is an easy one.
The Giants cannot be happy with Will Beatty and want some insurance should his performance continue to slide. Hakeem Nicks, even if he stays, is still nowhere near what he was 2-3 years ago, WR isn’t a bad way to go. If you can get a good one, why not?
