With the offseason being over (pretty much) and to keep the threads to a minimum, we can absorb all picks we can see/hope for in the 2013 Draft in this one.
first off, I would like to welcome all the new faces who have been posting. It's always nice to see new people and their opinions! Keep up the activity.

Once again, the Giants enter a year without many holes but enough to fill a need and gain the best player available. The top of the draft is very, very thin (which is good with Philly sitting at number 4.) A player, such as Bjoern Werner can go as high as a top five pick or can fall to us at 19.

NEEDS:
OLINE
LINEBACKER
CORNERBACK
DLINE

As for the first overall pick, I have seen several different positions addressed but the name that keeps up popping up is
BJOERN WERNER:
Height: 6'3
Weight: 266



PRODUCTIVITY:
Quote:
One of the most enjoyable defensive players to watch in college football is the German-born defensive end from Florida State.
A foreign-exchange student, Werner didn't begin playing football until he was 15, instantly falling in love with the sport. He bounced between Germany and the U.S. during high school before deciding to play at Florida State, choosing the Seminoles over Oregon.

Werner saw limited action as a true freshman backup in 2010 with 20 tackles, 6.0 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks. He was named one of the team MVPs the following spring and earned a starting job at left defensive end.

Werner turned heads as a sophomore starter, making a name for himself as both a pass rusher and run stuffer with his strong, but fast style of play. He finished 2011 with 11.0 tackles for loss and 7.0 sacks, just behind Brandon Jenkins for the team lead in both categories.

With Jenkins injured early in the season, Tank Carradine emerged as a force on the right side for the Seminoles until he also suffered a season-ending injury. Through the changes on the other side, Werner continued to rack up big numbers, including an ACC-best 13.0 sacks and a team-high 18 tackles for loss to go with 42 tackles overall and eight pass breakups.


ANALYSIS:
Quote:
STRENGTHS: Werner has good get-off quickness and bend to beat blockers off the snap. Natural instincts and upside makes him an attractive pass-rushing prospect for teams selecting in the top five. Still developing, with a high ceiling, but already shows outstanding football awareness, reading the ballcarrier and batting down passes at the line of scrimmage. Strong hands to win the edge and get around blockers, using his body strength and feet to flatten to the pocket.
WEAKNESSES: Lacks elite length for the position and doesn't have the natural start/stop explosion of some pass rushers. Will lose leverage at times, especially off the snap when he gets too high out of his stance. Has improved his awareness against the run, but still has room to improve his ability to sift through the trash and defeat off-balance blocks.

Motor tends to run hot/cold at times, especially late in games or if the play isn't to his side of the field. Needs to consistently finish when he gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Has a history of minor injuries, including a left hand issue that bothered him this past season.


PROJECTED PICK:
Pick 5-20

Next Prospect, also a Florida St. prospect is Tank Carradine who is a fan favorite on the boards:
Height: 6'4
Weight: 275



PRODUCTIVITY:

Quote:
The injury is devastating news for Carradine, who had played his way into the first round discussion after an excellent senior campaign, recording 11.0 sacks and 13.0 tackles for loss through 12 games in 2012.


ANALYSIS:
Quote:
Strengths: Good-looking athlete with agile feet and very good closing speed. Natural bend and flexibility around the edge with smooth lateral quickness and redirection skills. Quick in pursuit to force the issue and has the athleticism to recover from a false step.
Very good footwork to sidestep blockers to flatten and close on the pocket. Shows fluid movements and short-area burst, but also rangy. Active hands and limbs to swat and stay balanced through contact. Reliable in the open field, using his length to wrap and discipline to not sell out.

Accurate recognition skills and showed immense development in this area, setting the edge and making quick reads. Improved hand use to rip and tear, keeping low pad level through the process. Hungry player and his effort doesn't waver, going hard for all four quarters and rarely taking a play off. Chiseled frame and looks the part. Stepped up in 2012 after starter Brandon Jenkins went down with injury, producing excellent numbers.

Weaknesses: Still growing at the position and developing his pass rush moves. Didn't become a starter until his senior season with most of his playing experience coming at the JUCO level. Needs to continue adding strength and bulk to his frame, can be overpowered at times in the trenches.

Room to improve his snap anticipation off the edge with too many offsides penalties on his resume. Strong durability concerns after a torn ACL in his right knee in the fourth quarter of the 2012 season finale and most likely won't be able to work out for scouts pre-draft.


PROJECTED PICK:
Somewhere in the 25-40 range

Out of the two, I'd prefer Bjoern Werner. Being a more polished player than Tank with more experience. Tank has dealt with a serious knee injury and only started 12 games in his career.

ANOTHER player from Florida State that I've seen going to the Giants is Xavier Rhodes cornerback.
Height: 6'2
Weight 210



Productivity:
Quote:
Although he had a rough start at cornerback, Rhodes earned his way onto the field as a freshman, but a hand injury ended his season prematurely and led to a medical redshirt. The injury ended up to be a blessing in disguise because it allowed Rhodes to watch film and learn the subtle nuances of the cornerback position while he redshirted.

He returned healthy in 2010 and started all 14 games, emerging as one of the young studs of the Seminoles' defense with 12 pass break-ups and four interceptions. Rhodes failed to match his production as a sophomore (four pass break-ups, one interception), but teams tended to stay away from his side of the field.

Rhodes flirted with the NFL waters after the 2011 season, but decided to return to Tallahassee, especially after he suffered a knee injury in a bowl win over Notre Dame.

He tied for the team-lead in interceptions (three) in 2012, giving him eight over the past three seasons, and earned first-team All-ACC honors. He put up solid numbers despite teams largely staying away from Rhodes' side of the field.


Analysis:

Quote:
STRENGTHS: Rhodes is strong for the position with a solidly-built frame and excellent arm length. He loves to jam and get physical in press coverage, getting in the face of receivers at the line of scrimmage and staying aggressive through the whistle.
Rhodes has very good click-and-close ability with strong plant-and-go burst to drive on plays in front of him, undercutting routes and knocking down passes. He does a nice job getting his head around to locate and high point with very good leaping ability and timing. Rhodes can flip his hips and easily change directions with a near-effortless transition, showing the ability to adjust and contort his body.

He is confident and instinctive in coverage, coming off his man to make a play on the ball with very good ballskills. Rhodes does a nice job defeating blocks to be a factor against the run and is a punishing striker, making the decleating hit if it's there.

He has very good experience with 39 career starts, finishing his collegiate career with eight interceptions and 31 passes defended.

WEAKNESSES: Rhodes tends to get too physical in tight coverage, playing too hands-on and grabby, which will attract pass interference penalties. He plays very aggressive with the ball in the air, but makes too much contact and needs to pay more attention to body position.

Rhodes needs to show better discipline and is susceptible to play fakes and misdirection. He lacks elite long-speed and isn't a quick-twitch type of athlete. Rhodes needs to stay assignment-sound holding contain against the run. He needs to eliminate the penalties and stay focused, controlling his intensity.


PROJECTED PICK:
15-25 range

Next corner that can be a possible draft selection on day one is Desmond Trufant:
Height: 6'0
Weight: 190


PROUCTIVITY:
Quote:
A four-year starter, Trufant earned his way onto the field as a true freshman in 2009 and showed steady progression over his career. He set career-bests in 2011 as a junior with a pair of interceptions and 16 passes defended, but decided to return for his senior year. Although his senior stats weren't as impressive (1 interception, 9 passes defended), teams mostly stayed away from Trufant's side of the field as he was easily the top defender on the Huskies' roster. While he needs to refine his technique and is far from a polished product, there is no question he has the fluidity and competitiveness to fight for a spot in the first round.


ANALYSIS:
Quote:
Strengths: Athletic with fluid footwork, flashing the foot agility to drive quickly on the play. Looks natural in space, staying balanced with the hips and transition skills to redirect in any direction. Physical and fights for the ball when it's in the air, showing an excellent competitive nature. Doesn't shy from contact and will get his nose dirty in run support. Very good job tracking and highpointing with a top vertical to get his hands on the ball. Good bloodlines and understands the NFL process. Good experience as a four-year starter (47 career starts), spending time both inside and outside and in both man and zone coverage.
Weaknesses: Narrow torso, lean muscle tone and only average length. Opens his hips too early to protect against speed and needs to stay under control in his movements. Streaky technique once the ball in snapped and reverts to bad habits, relying on his natural athleticism over fundamentals. Lacks elite top-end speed and can be beat vertically. Inconsistent tackling technique, hitting too high and lacking the strength to consistently finish. Plays close to the line of scrimmage but doesn't make much contact and needs to improve his body position downfield. Too much of a grabber. Nagging hamstring injury late in 2012.


PROJECTED PICK:
20-30 range


MORE TO COME SHORTLY

More day one Prospects:

Out of the top OLINEMEN... Joeckel, Warmack, Fisher, Johnson and Cooper, I can see all of them being taken before our pick. The one that has a chance of fallen to us is OG Jonathan Cooper, North Carolina
Height: 6'2
Weight: 311

RESUME:

Quote:
With 47 starts on his resume, Cooper is a proven commodity who passed up an opportunity to be an early-round selection a year ago to return for his senior season. In doing so, the UNC guard earned consensus All-American honors, was named the recipient of the Jacobs Blocking Trophy as the ACC's top offensive linemen and was one of three finalists for the Outland Trophy.

After redshirting in 2008, he started 10 games as a redshirt freshman at left guard, earning Freshman All-American honors. Cooper made 13 starts as a sophomore in 2010 (12 at left guard and one at center) followed by 13 starts at left guard in 2011 as a junior.

NFL teams are generally loathe to spend first-round picks on guards, but with the steady Cooper an exception may have to be made. Cooper has excellent agility, demonstrating the ability to quickly get to the second level and block on the move. His terrific blocking helped Tar Heels running back Giovani Bernard -- a legitimate high-round prospect himself - rush for an average of nearly 123 yards per game this season.


ANALYSIS:

Quote:
STRENGTHS: Cooper is a smooth, coordinated athlete with fluid footwork and outstanding balance, blocking well on the move and constantly getting to the second level. He is an extremely effortless mover with explosive quickness in tight quarters, and is just as effective moving to his left or right. While slighter shorter than scouts would prefer, Cooper has long arms and plays with a wide base, anchoring effectively. Standout high school wrestler who understands leverage and blocking angles. Flashes some nastiness and responds well to physical challenges. Has the quickness, balance and football intelligence to handle converting to center, should his future NFL employer need help at this position. His athleticism makes him ideally suited to a zone-blocking scheme. Durable. Four-year starter.
WEAKNESSES: Cooper lacks overpowering strength and can be pushed into the pocket by bigger, stronger defensive tackles when he allows his pad level to rise. Was prone to an occasional slipped block and/or needless penalty earlier in his career, though he showed much more consistency as a senior. Underwent shoulder surgery before his senior season, which will have to be checked out by team doctors.


PROJECTION:
10-20

In the end, I see the offensive line depth being very good in the mid rounds with the top 5 most likely gone by our pick.

JARVIS JONES:

Height: 6'2
Weight: 245



Ahh the typical "sexy pick" for the NYG on draft day. The complete linebacker with size and game speed who can rush the quarterback and be the staple on the strongside for the next decade.

PRODUCTIVITY:

Quote:
Jones earned playing time immediately with the Trojans, seeing time primarily on special teams and as a backup strong-side linebacker in their 4-3 alignment. He suffered a sprained neck in the eighth game of the season (Oregon), however, and missed the rest of the year. Team doctors refused to clear him for participation the following spring and after seeking other opinions, Jones elected to transfer back to Georgia.

He sat out the 2010 campaign per NCAA transfer guidelines before absolutely exploding onto the SEC scene the following season. Primarily asked to rush the passer as an outside linebacker in Georgia's 3-4 alignment, Jones led the SEC in sacks (13.5) and tackles for loss (19.5) while posting 70 tackles overall (second on the team by two stops). He earned consensus first-team all-conference honors, quite a few All-American nods and was voted a finalist for the Butkus Award as the nation's best linebacker.

Having earned First-Team All-SEC honors in each of his two eligible seasons at Georgia, Jones has proven himself to be a playmaker against both the pass and run. The 6-2, 242-pounder led the country in three critical statistics -- sacks (14.5), tackles for loss (24.5) and forced fumbles (seven) despite missing two games (Kentucky, Florida Atlantic) due to injury.

As dynamic as he is, the redshirt junior's medical grade will ultimately determine his draft status. He was diagnosed with a mild case of spinal stenosis in 2009 and some NFL doctors may be unwilling to clear him.

ANALYSIS:
Quote:
Strengths: Elite playmaker off the edge. Possesses an explosive burst to complement very good timing to consistently cross the face of offensive tackles and get them backpedaling. Has enough flexibility to dip under their reach and close on the quarterback, demonstrating strong hands and an eye for ripping the ball free for the sack and forced fumble. Stronger than he looks and has an effective bull-rush. Also uses this strength to be surprisingly effective in setting the edge despite routinely giving up 70-plus pounds to opponents. Locates the ball quickly and pursues with passion. Athletic enough to drop back into coverage.
Weaknesses: Size limitations. Possesses an impressive build but a frame that may not have much room for additional mass. Relies an awful lot on speed, showing few complementary pass rush moves. Was diagnosed with a spinal stenosis condition while at USC, a condition which has led some notable NFL players to end their careers rather abruptly, including San Diego Chargers Pro Bowl left tackle Marcus McNeill a year ago at just 28 years old.


DRAFT VALUE:

Could go anywhere from 6ish to the second round. I would not touch him. Very injury risk and reminds me of a clint sintim bust.

STAR LOTULELEI, DT, UTAH
Height: 6'3
Weight: 311

A very athletic and well polished player. The only thing I see wrong with him is being 23 and played in JUCO for a bit. His numbers, are nothing great but he has played against double and triple teams most of his college career:

Quote:
Recognized by Pac-12 offensive linemen as the best defensive lineman in the conference with the Morris Trophy in 2011, Lotulelei posted 44 tackles, nine tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks despite facing consistent double- and even occasional triple-team blocks in 2011.

He battled through the same level of attention from defensive coordinators in 2012, and still earned his second selection to the All-Pac-12 first team. He finished the regular season with a team-high 11 tackles for loss and 5.0 sacks to go along with four pass breakups, four fumble recoveries and three forced fumbles.
He then spent two years at Snow College, racking up 52 tackles, 14 for losses, three sacks and a forced fumble in 2008. He attended Snow again in 2009, but did not play football before transferring to Utah.

Remarkably athletic at 6-3, 320 pounds, he's capable of shutting down running lanes and terrorizing quarterbacks, as well.


ANALYSIS:
Quote:
STRENGTHS: Boasts all of the physical traits to ultimately rank as one of the better, more versatile defensive linemen in the NFL.
Flashes an explosive burst off the snap. Possesses the lateral agility and flexibility to slip through gaps and ruin plays before they even have a chance to begin.

Strong, heavy hands to control his opponent and possesses the upper and core strength to simply rag-doll offensive linemen. Possesses a thick, classic Polynesian build well suited to anchoring against the run, making him a natural candidate to play inside at nose guard or defensive tackle, as well as a five-technique defensive end.

Has a developing arm-over swim move to break free from blockers when initially slowed at the point of attack. Locates the ball well and gives good effort in lateral pursuit to make the tackle. Has only average arm length but is very strong, showing the ability to grab and pull down ballcarriers seemingly out of his grasp. Has a short-area burst to close on the ball and can generate impressive explosiveness as a hitter.

Seemed to step up his play against top competition, enjoying some of his best moments against USC (and highly regarded senior center Khaled Holmes), as well as state rivals BYU and Utah State.

WEAKNESSES: Inconsistent. Relies too much on his unique physical traits to overcome rather marginal technique. Does not possess an elaborate array of pass rush moves and has just seven sacks in 38 career games at Utah. Too often is stale-mated when his initial burst and power are contained.

Possesses shorter than ideal arms, which contributes to his struggles slipping blocks and his relative lack of passes knocked down at the line of scrimmage (five over his career).


DRAFT STOCK:
Pick 5-15.
I think this can be the prince move of 2011. A very aggressive player with not the greatest stats due to plays being run away from him. [/quote]

^^This. You everyone and their mother is getting second, third and fourth opinions about his neck issue, but I think that it speaks volumes that the NFL's own doctors came out publicly and said he was misdiagnosed at USC.

How nice would it be to finally have a linebacker a team actually feared again... Surprised

...I may need to format my signature... Laughing

It would be awesome. You look at this guys production in college and you walk away with your jaw dropped. Immediate starter for 3/4 of the NFL teams.

Another prospect floating around is Oklahoma's left tackle Lane Johnson. Rumor has it one of the scouts for the Giants was overheard saying, thats my tackle.

Granted it may mean nothing as with every position scouts are going to have their favorite. But to entertain the idea of Giants drafting a true LT could Beatty play the right side?

Its a need for sure. One year contract for Boothe, Snee coming of surgery at his age. David falling apart. Seems like each year Manning is throwing the ball earlier and earlier just to avoid the sack, the run game has seen a rapid decline in production, mainly the right side.

Johnson did play some right tackle in college. Typically the right side isn't drafted in the first round but like you. Offensive line is a big need, perhaps its because it seems like the only need at the offensive side of the ball. Where as defense is littered with question marks. The draft appears to be defensive heavy this year with a solid group of lineman on offense. Could be a very productive draft for the giants as the draft seems to favor the giants needs.

There are basically 5 OL that can be BPA- Joeckel, Fisher, Johnson, Chance, and Cooper. Any of them could easily be BPA if available when the GMEN draft, unfortunetly a lot of the teams in front of them, Cowboys, Steelers, Rams, Saints, etc would highly consider them if they dropped too and may scoop them up right ahead of us. LTs, like QBs, tend to be overdrafted.

One of the OGs, Chance or Cooper have the best chance cause their not at premium positions. DeCastro was considered can't miss and fell late to the Steelers last year. I saw rumblings on sites that some ZBS teams like Cooper better. Then again, a DE like Werner or CB like Rhodes may be BPA ahead of them on Reese's board. The Giants may love Lane Johnson and I'm sure would pounce at the opportunity. Unfortunetly, I highly doubt he'll be around.

I think Cooper is the better guard prospect. Light on his feet, drives defenders back and can pull with the best of them. Huge upside, would love to have him on the roster.

When I was putting together a Round 1 Mock Draft for fun, one of the things I noticed is that Sheldon Richardson could slip because there are either better prospects available at that point, a team with a much higher need at other positions, or teams with DL needs, but run 3-4, not a 4-3 Richardson is built for. That combination makes him likely for a surprise fall. Even though it doesn't seem an immediate need, Joseph is our only young starter, Jenkins and Rogers are aging, Kuhn seems more of a rotational guy, and Austin hasn't proven anything. If he's at #19, I'd be very happy to see him in Giant Blue. He was a terror in college and aggressive. The Giants can let him add a little strenght while rotating with Jenkins as a rookie. Thoughts on Richardson if available at #19?

The biggest story since mark herzlich in my opinion and from my point of view... hes nothing better coming out of college.

with that said, i expected herzlich to be the next best thing coming out of college. great stats, overcoming defeat, building a legacy.

I likeD manti as a prospect a few months back. he is very tebow'esqe as the position. He looks awesome but once you break down the tape, you realize his flaws that, once added up, makes him not the prospect he truly is.

The signing of Dan Connor and having mark herzlich defeats the purpose of drafting manti. It is not in our system to recruit players that rather be on camera talking instead of having his play do the talking.

Draft Prediction:

25-30
some crappy team will trade up and grab him. hell, i would trade back in a heatbeat in this years draft.

ARTHUR BROWN
OUTSIDE LINEBACKER
KANSAS STATE
HEIGHT:6-0
WEIGHT: 240



THE BIGGEST issues with players in the 2000's is height, mostly quarterbacks, linebackers and corners. "this quarterback is undersix foot...bust" "a corner under five ten, bust...." "linebacker under six foot...cannot make it in the nfl..."
i always hear it but to me, that is not an issue. much like last years lavonte david (determined too short for the nfl and posted 139 tackles as a rookie)

Plays much bigger than his 6-0 frame... so do not listen to the "if he was only an inch or two taller, hed be a steal. The kid is a stud.

Pick Prediction:
25-40

JUSTIN PUGH
SYRACUSE
OFFENSIVE GUARD
HEIGHT: 6-5
WEIGHT: 307


ANALYSIS:


Quote:
STRENGHTS : Experienced player who started every game he played over three seasons. Effortless mover for a 290-pound tackle with good body control and coordination to take on blocks and mirror rushers in space. Good combination of speed and athleticism enables him to reach the second level as fast as any offensive lineman in this class. High ceiling.

WEAKNESSES: Has the mobility and body control to protect the edge, but he has suspect core strength and struggles to properly use his hands to control rushers at the point of attack. Pugh also lacks the length (31.5-inch arms) and growth potential to convince NFL teams he can stay at left tackle. Needs to continue to fill out his frame and spend more time in the weight room. Left shoulder injury from 2012 warrants medical evaluation.


PICK PREDICTION
He is a project type player. always played left tackle at cuse but more suitable at guard due to his strength.
3rd round
