By now I know you are getting tired of NFL mock drafts. The real draft is a week away and you are antsy. I am going to offer you a mock draft to peruse, anyway, but we'll go in a different direction. Russ Lande of the National Football Post is hardly a conventional draft analyst, and version 12.0 of his 2013 Mock Draft shows that.
The Giants pass rush was not consistent in 2012 and they need fresh bodies to help. Richardson is one of the most explosive off the ball defenders in this year’s draft and would upgrade the Giants’ pass rush immediately.
The Richardson selection isn't an off-the-wall one for the Giants, but there are a few eyebrow-raisers in here.
- Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee to Cleveland at No. 6.
