2011 NFL Mock Draft: The Giants Add Linebacker Akeem Ayers with 19th Pick
The Giants Take Ayers Over Offensive Lineman in First Round
The Giants have two needs they could address in the first round, an offensive lineman or an outside linebacker. I think they will choose the linebacker.
With Nate Solder and Tyron Smith off the board, the Giants will move in and take Akeem Ayers. Ayers is an extremely talented linebacker who can be moved around if the Giants need him to. Ayers is a playmaker and will fit right in to the New York mentality.
He is the best player on the board, and the Giants can not afford to pass him up.
Ayers is a physical player who loves hitting people. He also has good pass-rushing skills and will be great addition to the Giants.
The Giants are one of the teams I think may either trade up to get a player like Nate Solder, or trade down because there are a ton of good pass rushers and linebackers in this draft.
