2013 NFL Draft Day 2: What will New York Giants do?

USA TODAY Sports

Rounds 2 and 3 of the 2013 NFL Draft take place Friday night. What will the Giants do? We don't know, but we can certainly offer an educated guess.

What will the New York Giants do Friday night in rounds two and three of the 2013 NFL Draft? Well, you can ask general manager Jerry Reese for the Giants' plan, and reporters did on Thursday night, but he won't give you a straight answer.

"A good football player – that is what we would like to address; good football player," is how Reese answered the question of what he would like to get on Friday night.

What position or positions could the Giants target? Again, Reese was little help.

"It will be interesting. With the draft you see players -- the value seems to be similar in a lot of different positions. So you will see players coming out all over the board. We think we will get -- there are still a lot of good players left on the board. We think we will get a couple of more really good players to come in and contribute for us right away," Reese said. "And we will get guys in the fourth and fifth round as well that we hope can hit on some guys in those rows. But there are still a lot of good players up there."

So, let's dig a little deeper and see where some of those "really good players" might come from and what positions they play. We will discuss primarily the positions most analysts believe are need spots for the Giants.

Linebacker

Manti Te'o (Notre Dame), Arthur Brown (Kansas State), Sio Moore (Connecticut), Khaseem Greene (Rutgers), Kevin Minter (LSU) and Jon Bostic (Florida) are among the top linebackers still on the board. Jesse Bartolis has Brown going to the Giants at No. 49 overall in his Day 2 Mock Draft.

Cornerback

Jamar Taylor (Boise State), Johnthan Banks (Mississippi State), Jordan Poyer (Oregon State), Logan Ryan (Rutgers), David Amerson (North Carolina State), Darius Slay (Mississippi State) and Tyrann Mathieu (LSU) are among those players still on the board.

Defensive End

The Giants -- and everyone else -- passed on Tank Carradine of Florida State in the first round. He heads the group of 4-3 defensive end pass-rushers available on Day 2. That group also includes: Damontre Moore (Texas), Sam Montgomery (LSU), Walter Stewart (Cincinnati) and Margus Hunt (SMU).

Final Thought

We should have learned by now that we can't predict anything. So, we really don't know what will happen. We know, however, that finding out will be interesting.
