Mock drafts can be confusing.
They flood the web this time of year, as every draft expert across all of cyberspace tries to pump out their last-minute analysis and projections. You've probably seen two dozen different prospects projected to be selected by the Giants with the 12th overall pick, and it seems like hardly anyone clarifies whether the mock is of what they think will happen or what they think should happen.
I may not be able to make total sense of the NFL draft's incessant mockery, but I can break down each player Draftniks have mocked to the Giants. So, that's what I'll do for you here.
This way, you'll have no excuse not to know the name NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell happens to call out 12th Thursday night, May 8—whichever one that may be.
The first slide is a full, seven-pick mock for the Giants by Matt Miller of Bleacher Report; the rest are only first-round mocks. Multiple experts that chose the same player will appear on the same slide.
Read on to see the potential picks.
