New Mel Kiper ESPN Mock Draft (4/4)

I copied and pasted the picks below. His top half of Round 1 breaks down difficult for the Giants, as O-Line targets Fluker, Cooper, and Warmack are all off the board. I would have preferred Alec Ogletree who he has going 2 spots later at 21, but Trufant might be the best value pick at 19 considering this board. I don't like the pic of Sio Moore in round 2.

19. New York Giants

Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington

HT: 6-0

WT: 190


Analysis: The Giants certainly can't assume Terrell Thomas is going to be an effective starter in 2013, and even if they could, depth at cornerback would still be a priority. In Trufant, you get a player who will make your secondary better regardless of where the needs are, because Trufant can do it all. Slot or outside, man or zone, you're going to get an effective talent. Needs at linebacker can be addressed further down the board. Trufant makes sense here, and the value fits the slot.


49. New York Giants

Sio Moore, LB, Connecticut


They take care of cornerback in Round 1 and fill a void at linebacker here.
