The New York Giants have reportedly come to an agreement with the Cincinnati Bengals to trade their fifth-round pick in the 2012 NFL draft for 2008 first-round pick linebacker Keith Rivers.

Rivers, the ninth selection in the 2008 NFL draft, has been underwhelming since being taken by the Bengals, falling short of expectations and often injured. The acquisition of Rivers does potentially address the Giants biggest need this offseason, should Rivers or current Giants linebacker Michael Boley move to the inside linebacker spot.

Regardless of the direction the Super Bowl champions may choose to go there, one thing appears certain: the Giants will not draft a linebacker in this year’s draft.

The Rivers pickup shifts their focus going into the draft at the end of this month and enables them to answer some other questions heading into the 2012 NFL season.

Let’s take a look at how things are shaping up with just a few weeks to go leading up to the draft.
