Hunter's: New York Giants Complete 2014 NFL Mock Draft

Hunter's: New York Giants 2014 NFL Mock Draft
Rounds 1-7

A lot of people really liked that I did a full and complete 1st Round Mock Draft for every single team. That being said, I am posting on a Giants Fan Forum, and some people wanted to see my full Mock Draft for everyone's favorite team. That being said here it is, please leave me some feedback, and as always please answer the poll if to better help my understanding of all of your opinions!

Round 1

Khalil Mack OLB Buffalo Bulls

Khalil Mack in my mind is the best fit for the Giants in the entire draft. I think he is, and definitely should be considered as a top 5 player in the draft. I personally think he is a top 3 player in the draft behind only Jadeveon Clowney and Teddy Bridgewater. Khalil Mack is a combination of lethal size, speed, and strength. Mack is 6'3, 250 and has recorded a team leading 10.5 sacks. I think he is the surest player in the draft and has debatably the highest ceiling as he produces week in and week out. Mack is expected to run under a 4.6 forty and at 250 pounds he is lethal coming off the edge. Depending on whether the Giants decide to make a splash in free agency and sign a big name pass rushed like Brian Orakpo or Wesley Woodyard, they could have a easily a top 5 LB core in the NFL. Jon Beason has been exceptional since his arrival from Carolina and adding a premiere pass rusher like Orakpo and drafting Mack, the Giants would go from being 7th worst in the NFL in sacks, to an elite pass rushing force in the NFL.

Round 2

Aaron Donald DT Pittsburgh

Aaron Donald is the most exciting Defensive Line prospect in the entire draft except for Jadeveon Clowney. The 6'0 285 Senior is extremely explosive as he recorded 11 sacks and over 28 tackles for loss in what was probably the best performance by a Defensive Lineman in the entire 2013 season. With Linval Joseph being a Free Agent this year, Big Blue will have to look for a suitable replacement in the draft, Cullen Jenkins is 33, Mike Patterson is 30, and Shaun Rogers is almost 35. Jonathan Hankins has played well in the limited time that he's gotten, with 16 tackles, including 5 in one game. With Hankins as the primary run-stopper at 320 pounds, the Giants could easily go for a less heavy steal in the 2nd round, Donald, who is supreme pass rusher up the gut.

Round 3

Aaron Colvin CB Oklahoma

Aaron Colvin has unperformed this year as a pass defender with only 1 interception and 3 pass deflections. However Colvin has excelled at stopping the run and finding the ball carrier with 1 sack and 61 total tackles. Although he didn't perform up to standards this year, in the previous year, Colvin snagged in 4 picks, which was 6th in the entire Big 12. With Corey Webster being injury prone and nearly 32 years of age, Aaron Ross being 31 and underperforming, Trumaine McBride as a Third String Corner at best, Terrell Thomas fighting through 3 ACL tears, and Jayron Hosley being unpredictable, The Giants could definitely use a physical Corner, and one who slips this late in the Draft, could be very beneficial for the Giants.

Round 4

Anthony Steen G Alabama

The Giants have been swamped by opposing defenses this year in the NFL, allowing Manning to be sacked nearly 40 times and having no running back have an average of at least 3.5 yards per carry, except for Brandon Jacobs and Da'Rel Scott who only combined for 68 total carries. Steen is projected by most to go between rounds 3 and 4, so the Giants could really benefit by taking someone who had really excelled in protecting A.J. McCarron and allowing Alabama Running Backs to rush for over 2550 yards and 27 touchdowns, in an obvious "Pass First" Offense. If the 6'3, 310 pound Interior Lineman falls to the 4th Round, the Giants should hesitate in picking the "Chris Snee" of the future.

Round 5

Denicos Allen ILB Michigan State

Although Allen has been called undersized at only 5'11, 220 pounds, the Senior Linebacker knows how to play. This year, including bowl games, Allen tallied for 98 total tackles and 5.5 sacks on a top ranked Michigan State Defense. Although Spencer Paysinger has played well, and Jon Beason has played great since his arrival from Carolina, Allen will have to be the best player available at this point in the draft, and could definitely fill a need, even if the Giants could land Khalil Mack in the First Round. Keith Rivers will most likely be gone, and Jacquian Williams will remain as just a Special Teams Player anyway. If not this year, in 2015 or 2016, Giants fans could see Denicos Allen starting at one of the Linebacker positions.

Round 6

James Wilder Jr. HB Florida State

I very much like James Wilder Jr. at this spot to the Giants, what would be their scheduled last pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Although being "Wildly" overlooked because of guys like Devonta Freeman, Wilder Jr. has had a pretty stellar season. On only 81 attempts in a "Pass First Offense", Wilder Jr. has eclipsed nearly 600 yards and 8 Touchdowns for a 7.0 yards per carry average. With Andre Brown's health and productivity under serious speculation, and David Wilson potentially not playing another down in the NFL after what is a more serious neck injury than what anyone first expected, The Giants have a glaring whole at Running Back, part of the reason the Giants were so unsuccessful this season. Wilder Jr. has proved that he can play at a high level as he kept up his 7.0 yards per carry rate against the #2 Auburn Tigers in the BCS National Championship, and the Giants would be very ecstatic I'm sure to land him with their 6th Round Selection.

-No Round 7-
