Expect the New York Football Giants to trade some of those middle round picks to move up to get two picks in the first round of Saturday's NFL Draft. Some of the players they will be be targeting may shock the mock-drafter.

Don't be surprised if the Giants fill their need for a big receiver with a TE rather than a WR. The Giants may trade up to grab Oklahoma St. TE Brandon Pettigrew (above) to fill the big guy role and then use their second choice to select a Brian Robiskie, Beanie Wells, Darius Heyward-Bey, or Percy Harvin.

The longshots with that other first round pick they get are Micheal Oher, Donald Brown, and Rey Maualuga.

The Giants do not need much and 10 rookies are not making this roster. In reality, five rookies may not make it either, so why not just draft four or five players that have a shot?
