2013 NFL Mock Draft: D.J. Hayden to New York Giants -- Todd McShay

D.J. Hayden - Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

Todd McShay of ESPN has released a revised mock draft with a new name connected to the New York Giants.

Todd McShay of ESPN has tossed a new name into the hopper for the New York Giants with the 19th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. In mock draft revised due to the Darrelle Revis trade, McShay has given the Giants fast-rising Houston cornerback D.J. Hayden.

Mike Mayock of NFL Network recently elevated Hayden to the top spot among cornerbacks in this draft class, surpassing Dee Milliner of Alabama. Mayock has Hayden No. 14 on his list of the top 100 prospects.

SB Nation's Mocking The Draft is not nearly as high on Hayden as Mayock or McShay, ranking him 75th on its Big Board.

In a recent scouting report on Hayden, however, SB Nation's Dan Kadar acknowledged that Hayden is moving up draft boards.

So how exactly did Hayden become the hottest name in the 2013 NFL Draft? Immediately after his pro day, four teams scheduled him for a private workout and seven teams scheduled a visit.

That number has likely only gone up. Adam Caplan of SiriusXM and TheSidelineView.com notes that Hayden visited the San Francisco 49ers on Monday and his medial reports came back very good.

It won't be a surprise now to see Hayden taken in the first 50 picks of the draft.

Valentine's View: It is really impossible to say if the Giants have Hayden ranked ahead of Desmond Trufant (Washington), Jamar Taylor (Boise State) or Xavier Rhodes (Florida State). It would not be a stunner, however, if the Giants do select a cornerback at No. 19 -- or at some point on Day 2 of the draft. They have numbers at that position, but beyond Prince Amukamara the quality is questionable.
