Sam Montgomery - Joe Murphy
The 2013 NFL mock draft trend toward defensive ends for the New York Giants continues this week. SB Nation selected Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU for the Giants.
The New York Giants love to collect pass rushers, and it is clear as we begin heading toward the 2013 NFL Draft that many in the mock draft community believe the Giants will focus on re-stocking their supply of quarterback-terrorizing defensive ends this April.
In its latest 2013 NFL Mock Draft, released Monday morning, SB Nation has chosen a defensive end for the Giants for the second straight week. This week, SB Nation draft expert Dan Kadar has given the Giants Sam Montgomery, a defensive end from LSU, with the 19th selection of the first round. Last week the choice was Montgomery's teammate, Barkevious Mingo.
Of Montgomery, Kadar writes:
One of the things that often goes overlooked with Montgomery is his versatility. He was used differently this season, lining up on both the left and right sides, and even saw some time at tackle. His stats were average because he struggled with injuries. Osi Umenyiora seems to be on his way out of New York and Montgomery could quickly step into his role.
Other Mock Drafts
Here is a brief look at the first-round selections for the Giants from some other recent mock drafts.
