NFL Draft Rumors, And Other Notes

Here is the thing about 2012 NFL Draft rumors. When it comes to the New York Giants there aren't any -- which is typical of how the defending Super Bowl champs do things. Here are a few afternoon nuggets for you, anyway.

I love this tweet from Justin Tuck:

"Can't wait 2 c who Reese and company get tonight. It really doesn't matter who bc we will teach him how 2 play @Giants football"

Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily News has a pretty good track record when it comes to figuring out who the Giants will take with their first-round pick. His choice today? Same as the one I made in my mock -- Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech.

Here is RV's explanation:

The Giants have spent a lot of time looking into receivers in this draft for the exact reasons I mentioned above. They don't really have a big receiver and if Jernigan is their No. 3 then Cruz is no longer a slot guy. Though there's some difference of opinion in the organization on this, many believe Cruz is most dangerous coming out of the slot.

Either way, Manningham was their straight-away, outside receiving deep threat. They don't really have a prototypical one of those now.

Hill, at 6-4, 215, certainly has the size. He wasn't an overly productive player in college (just 28 catches last year, but for 820 yards and an eye-popping average of 29.3 yards per catch), but some of that is because of the team he was on and the run-based, triple-option offense they ran. More important to scouts is that he has 4.4 speed (he actually ran a 4.36 in the 40 at the combine) and he's considered to be a pretty good downfield blocker. Don't underestimate that last part for the Giants, who know they need to run in the cold weather and ask their receivers to block a lot.
