2012 NFL Draft: 3 Players Super Bowl Champion New York Giants Should Draft
The New York Giants have few holes heading into the 2012 season.
However, the draft is a chance for each team to make a statement about the future, and that's exactly what the Giants need to do.
Here are the three players New York should look at drafting in the 2012 NFL Draft with each pick they have in the first, second and third round.
Dwayne Allen, Clemson, TE
Dwayne Allen is the top tight end in the draft and with the Giants having Jack Ballard and Travis Beckum unavailable, he is a great pick.
Allen scored eight touchdowns and had 50 receptions during his last season at Clemson. All Giants tight ends combined for 55 catches and five touchdowns during last season.
If Allen gets to the 32nd pick, New York should not pass up this sure-handed stud who could make an immediate impact.
Doug Martin, Boise State, RB
Brandon Jacobs would probably have to take a big pay cut to stay with the Giants, and I don't think that will happen.
With the Giants creating cap space by freeing up Jacobs, Doug Martin would be a great pick for someone to replace him.
At the combine, he out-shone all running backs on the bench press and is a force to try to take down. He's a bit small at 5'9", but his quickness (4.55 40) and strength (28 bench press reps) make him an absolute monster in the backfield.
The last pick of the second round was made for this guy.
Brandon Brooks, Miami (OH), OG
He wasn't invited to the combine, but that's just ridiculous.
Brooks should still make it up the third or fourth round, and I think he is a good fit in the Giants' offensive line.
The offensive line of the Giants has been very good. But they're getting older and have a much higher injury risk, so drafting a guard could be a good choice in the third round.
