2013 NFL Mock Draft: Final roundup of mock drafts

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Here is one final look at who the analysts believe the Giants will select Thursday night in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Here is one final round of mock drafts for you before the real 2013 NFL Draft begins Thursday night.

Draft Countdown, where Scott Wright has been one of the most accurate draft forecasters over the past six or seven years, joins the Tank Carradine party, selecting the Florida State defensive end for the New York Giants with the 19th overall pick. Wright explains:

The G-Men place a major emphasis on the defensive line and have a tendency to select pass rushers early in the draft even when it appears they are set at the position. With Osi Umenyiora no longer in the picture don’t be surprised if New York goes that route once again. Cornellius "Tank" Carradine is a former junior college standout who was enjoying a breakout senior campaign before a late season knee injury complicated matters. Prior to getting hurt it appeared as though Carradine might be ticketed for the Top 10 overall. The good news is Tank’s ahead of schedule in his rehab and was even able to work out for scouts shortly before the draft, alleviating concerns about his health and putting him back into the first round mix. The Giants are said to be quite high on Carradine and could afford to be patient, working him in slowly behind Jason Pierre-Paul and Justin Tuck. While not a dynamic edge rusher Carradine is big and powerful with a great motor. Tank Carradine | Florida St. Seminoles Carradine’s former teammate Bjoern Werner could be an alternative as well. If Alabama OT D.J. Fluker were to somehow fall this far the Giants would most likely sprint to the podium because David Diehl is getting old and he is exactly the type of big, mauling blocker that they seem to prefer. This organization doesn’t seem to feel linebacker is a position worth expending major resources on but there are exceptions to every rule so Alec Ogletree of Georgia and Manti Te’o of Notre Dame could at least be in the discussion.

Wright has the Giants selecting Kansas State linebacker Arthur Brown in the second round (49th overall) and Kent State offensive guard Brian Winters in the third round (81st overall).

Matthew Fairburn of Mocking The Draft gives the Giants Alabama right tackle D.J. Fluker. MTD's Dan Kadar sticks with Carradine.

Over at ESPN, Mel Kiper gives the Giants Houston cornerback D.J. Hayden. Todd McShay goes with Bjoern Werner.

-- Don't forget Ed's mock and Jesse's mock.
