Giants A/B/C/"Upside" Mock 7 Rd Drafts

With all the extra time this year before the 2014 Draft, I decided to use the time to compile some fun scenarios for the Giant’s seven picks this year. I broke them down by what I would call the "A" grade, "B" grade and "C" grade draft selections, as well as a "Upside" draft.

How did I determine my rankings? I averaged out the prospect rankings of 8 different "Big Boards" from ESPN, NFL.com, CBS Sports, Bob McGinn, DraftTek, BBV (combined), Mocking The Draft and Draft Countdown. May seem like a lot but was easy once getting them all into a spreadsheet.

From there, I went through the different scenarios:

"A" Draft – This would be the "ideal" scenario of what I thought would not be very likely, but would be a better than any "expected" scenario. I understand "expected" can be subjective, but I tried not to get too out of control based on the averaged prospect rankings.

"B" Draft – Would be in range of what is possible for when the Giant’s pick comes up and would provide good or great value (again, going off of the averaged prospect rankings).

"C" Draft – Here picks reflect decent talent but are going with maybe a "third" or "forth" option. Scenarios where no one in the first 11 takes a quarterback type picks.

"Upside" Draft – This one contains prospects that may be a "reach" but the upside could make the picks worth it. I think of it as a worst-case scenario where better fits or better talent just isn’t available.

I thought about adding some comments based on what I thought about prospects, but to keep a longer post shorter, could follow up in the comments.
