2012 NFL Draft: The Best Fit for the New York Giants at Every Position

The New York Giants head into draft week having dealt with some of their issues via free agency and trades.

Signing Martellus Bennett, Antwaun Molden and trading for Keith Rivers went a long way in addressing some of the issues the Giants had with their roster.

Bennett gives the Giants a solid blocking option with a lot of upside in the passing game. The 6'7'' former basketball player will be a nice target for Eli Manning in the red zone.

Antwaun Molden replaces the depth from the loss of Aaron Ross, and Keith Rivers was a former top-10 pick who was acquired with basically a sixth-round pick. The upside clearly outweighs the minuscule risk there. 

But who are the best fits for the Giants at each position? Jerry Reese has shown some tendencies with his drafts, mainly that he loves to draft players early who will help in the passing game on both sides of the ball, and later he will try to find offensive lineman or possible special teams contributors.

With that in mind, take a look at who is the best college prospect for the Giants at each position, realistically of course. Andrew Luck will not be listed as the best fit for the quarterback position.

Feel free to comment below.   


Since the Giants typically do not draft punters, kickers or fullbacks under Tom Coughlin, I decided to leave them out. These players are usually found via free agency, both after the draft and the normal free-agency period.
