2014 NFL Mock Draft: Roundup shows familiar picks for Giants

By now the names of the players commonly mocked to the New York Giants should sound familiar.

Let's look around the Inter-Google this morning and see what players were selected for the New York Giants in some recent 2014 NFL mock drafts.

NFL.com (Jeremiah) -- Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina

Ebron would be a perfect compliment to Victor Cruz and hopefully help Eli Manning return to form.

DraftTek -- Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

The question here is not whether or not Taylor Lewan makes sense for the Giants, but whether or not he'll be available when the Giants pick. National Football Post's Greg Gabriel said, "It's not gonna happen" in reference to Lewan being available at 12. He also said Lewan is better than last year's #1 overall pick Eric Fisher. Gabriel spent a long time in personnel, including Director of College Scouting for the Chicago Bears. In this scenario, though, Lewan is available likely because of the assault charges hanging over his head, or the questions about his consistency and tougness. This much is sure: the Giants still have plenty of question marks along their offensive line with Will Beatty coming back from a broken leg, J.D. Walton not playing a down of football in well more than a season, and Chris Snee coming off back-to-back subpar seasons. It's better for the Giants to have three OTs for two spots as opposed to one OT for two spots, which is why if Lewan is the likely pick.

CBS Sports (Rang) -- Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M

To get back into Super Bowl contention the Giants must protect Eli Manning, whether that come in the form of additional blockers or pass-catchers. The 6-5, 231-pound Evans plays with the physicality and speed to feast on the relatively short corners of the NFC East division and is an excellent value at this point in the draft.

CBS Sports (Brugler) -- Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh

The defensive line has been the bread and butter of the Giants winning seasons over the past decade, but the interior positions need some help. Donald is a quick penetrator who can step in from day one and be an impact player.

CBS Sports (Kirwan) -- Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

The Giants win when they protect Eli Manning and run the ball. Lewan gives them a better chance to do both things right away.

SI.com (Banks) -- Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina

With good fits for New York like Evans, Lewan and Donald already off this board, I'm sticking with Ebron, the Tar Heels' tight end who would add an element of explosiveness to the Giants offense. The defensive needs are many, but as the new guy, offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo probably gets the jump ball in this, his first draft with the G-Men, and that spells finding another weapon to help Eli Manning en route to a rebound season.
