2010 NFL Mock Draft: New York Giants—All Seven Rounds with a Twist
Look, we all have seen traditional mocks with the Giants getting Rolando McClain in the first (even though I doubt he falls to the 15th pick), but let's change things up a little.
I had some time on my hands, so here is a mock draft with a twist for your viewing convenience.
Feel free to hammer me with your arguments saying that this will never happen.
Okay then, here we go.
Round One (15th pick): Kyle Wilson, Cornerback, Boise State
A-ha, you didn't expect this twist did ya!
Well, assuming Joe Haden is gone by now, this would be a great pick for the Giants. Wilson is going to replace cornerback Kevin Dockery, who left to join the St. Louis Rams.
Wilson has great potential and explosiveness, and I expect him to become one of those "shutdown" corners that y'all hear about so often these days. Yeah, I am looking at you, Darrelle Revis.
Round Two: Sean Lee, Linebacker, Penn State
We lost Antonio Pierce, and we need a replacement.
Sean Lee has great knowledge of the game and can stand behind Jonathan Goff for a few games and then step in.
He has great maturity and a strong understanding of the position. He will be an ideal fit for the Giants.
Round Three: Toby Gerhart, Running Back, Stanford
We need to establish ourselves again as a hard-as-nails running team.
With Gerhart, who is a tough north-south runner, we can no doubt establish a three-headed monster in the backfield, which will include Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw.
Gerhart can also be utilized as a fullback, and he is a good blocker—all the more reason the Giants draft him.
Round Four: Dennis Pitta, Tight End, BYU
Look, this guy displays extremely soft hands and is one of the better blockers out there.
He can learn the basics from Kevin Boss and develop into a future Pro Bowl tight end, I am sure of it.
It helps that he posted the highest bench press numbers for tight ends at the Combine, repping 225 pounds a whopping 27 times. Strong man.
Round Five: Myron Rolle, Safety, Florida State
This guy is really smart. We all know that by now.
As a safety, his skills can be worked on, but he will be a great figure to have in our locker room.
He can learn behind veteran safety Deon Grant and also Antrel Rolle, his namesake. He will start in a year and be productive for years to come.
Round Six: Phil Costa, Offensive Lineman, Maryland
We need some added help in the offensive line, and trust me, this kid is good.
He was a two-year starter at Maryland and is incredibly strong, posting 30 reps of 225 pounds at his pro day.
Watch out for this fella.
Round Seven: Brett Swenson, Kicker, Michigan State
He is widely considered the best kicker in the draft and is remarkably accurate.
His career-best kick has been 49 yards—not too shabby.
Someone needs to give Lawrence Tynes a run for his money, and he can certainly do so.
So that's the draft.
Hope you guys enjoyed it.
No doubt you guys have differing viewpoints, so go ahead and tell me what you think.
