Brian Price has made a comeback. Last week Rolando McClain was the most popular target for the Giants in mocks that had been updated, but this week a slew of mocks which previously linked Price to the Giants have been updated, and they continue to believe the UCLA defensive tackle will be the pick at 15. DraftAce has a pretty good summary of the Giants draft position:
"I struggle with the Giants pick every time I update the mock draft. Their biggest hole (linebacker) is the weakest position in terms of 1st-round prospects. Sean Weatherspoon could be an option, but it would be a reach and the Giants tend to avoid reaching for needs in the 1st round. The next best option in terms of finding a balance between need and value may be Price."
Walter Football agrees with Ed and sees the Giants taking Derrick Morgan. What's strange is that they actually predict McClain to fall past the Giants, all the way to the Steelers at #18. I understand their reasoning, but I have to believe if McClain is available at 15, there's no way the Giants pass on him. Ed admitted as much when making his pick in our community mock draft.
DraftTek still believes OT Trent Williams will be the choice.
Ricky Dimon of FF Toolbox also still believes LB Jerry Hughes will be the choice. I still believe he's crazy.
Football's Future has the Giants taking DT Cam Thomas of North Carolina
