Despite the fact that there is a lockout and as of today, the NFLPA is advising college players entering the draft to boycott it, the 2011 NFL Draft is set to go on.
The New York Giants have several needs they need to address; this mock draft is an update with one change in the fourth round.
Remember the Giants forfeited their fifth round pick when they traded for Sage Rosenfels and Darius Reynaud.
The most important needs for the Giants are along the offensive line, linebacker and down the road maybe cornerback. The uncertainty that the lockout created has put a hold on signing free agents, but the Giants made tender offers to all of their top tier free agents before the lockout began.
Having signed DJ Ware and giving Ahmad Bradshaw a second round tender—making him a restricted free agent—appears as if the Giants will no longer be drafting a running back.
The only way that changes is if the new CBA is done and in the resulting free agent period, Bradshaw decides to bolt for more money.
So here is my Giants mock draft, feel free to comment if you disagree and I will explain my reasoning for each pick.
