2012 NFL Draft Prospect Profile: James Carmon, OT, Mississippi State

The 2012 NFL Draft is closing in, with the first round this Thursday. As much as we focus on the first round, there are seven rounds and a plethora of undrafted free agents who will be looking for training camp invites. As we learned with New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, once in a while you hit a home run with one of those guys.

Let's use today's 2012 NFL Draft Prospect Profile to look at a player who could fall into that third day/UDFA category. James Carmon, an offensive tackle from Mississippi State is an intriguing player with size at 6-foot-7, 330 pounds and athleticism. The Giants have worked him out, so let's get to know a little more about him.

Wes Bunting of the National Football Post sees Carmon as a development project. He points out that Carmon is a JUCO transfer and former defensive lineman who spent just one season at offensive tackle. Bunting, though, likes Carmon's athletic gifts.

"He's a gifted athlete for his size who at worst is worth a developmental/free agent grade. He's the type of lineman I would love to have/develop on my practice squad for a year and see how much he can develop."

NEPatriotsDraft.com points out that Carmon faced three probably first-round picks in his lone season at left tackle -- Dontari Poe of Memphis, Melvin Ingram of South Carolina and Courtney Upshaw of Alabama.

Mike Garafolo reported recently that the Giants like Carmon's "physical and nasty" disposition.

Ourlads calls Carmon a "developmental player with tools."

Thoughts, Giants fans?
