Mel Kiper 2012 NFL Mock Draft 2.0: Dwayne Allen, TE, Clemson To Giants

I must have been reading Mel Kiper Jr.'s mind when I began my series of 2012 NFL Draft Prospect Profiles with a look at Clemson tight end Dwayne Allen.

That is because Kiper today selected Allen for the Giants [Insider Only] in version 2.0 of his 2012 NFL Mock Draft, just released today.

Here is what Kiper said about Allen to the Giants:

The Super Bowl will provide plenty of good memories for Giants fans, but from a personnel standpoint, people should also remember the injuries they suffered at tight end, and Allen is the best one in this draft. He's a fantastic athlete, can create matchup problems and further diversify the Giants' offense as they maximize this window of exceptional quarterback play. The Giants could also look for help on the offensive line, or target a linebacker here, but I expect Allen's profile to rise during the workout process, and he should represent a lot of value here.

Oh, and in case you were wondering about this. Yes, it scares me to be thinking the saw way as Kiper.
