2014 NFL Mock Draft: Mock Draft consensus has Zack Martin going to NY Giants

Zack Martin - Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Notre Dame offensive lineman Zack Martin is the choice for the Giants in 76 percent of final mock drafts studied here.

Who will the New York Giants select at No. 12 in the 2014 NFL Draft on Thursday night? Well, the mock draft consensus has formed around Notre Dame offensive lineman Zack Martin, the potential plug-and-play five-position player who has been shooting up draft boards recently.

A sample of 25 final mock drafts from reputable sources showed that 19 of the 25 (76 percent) chose Martin for the Giants. Two picks (8 percent) were made for North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron. Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan, Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans, Texas A&M offensive tackle Jake Matthews and LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. were all selected by one mock drafter (4 percent). Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald, surprisingly, was not selected in any of the 25 final mock drafts used in this report.

Here is a sample of some of the mock draft used in our roundup. Final mocks from ESPN's Mel Kiper and Todd McShay are not included.

Full Draft Coverage

NFL Network guru Mike Mayock, who correctly predicted the Giants' surprising selection of Justin Pugh last year, has Ebron to the Giants at No. 12. Mayock says "Eli needs a buddy. The Giants were No. 28 in points scored, and Ebron is the most gifted tight end I've seen in a while as a vertical threat. If he's willing to work at blocking, he's a Pro Bowl tight end."

Matthew Fairburn and Dan Kadar of SB Nation's Mocking The Draft both chose Martin for the Giants.

Scott Wright of Draft Countdown has Martin going to the Giants, Wright is historically one of the most accurate draft analysts in the business. Wright says Martin ""may be one of the safest prospects in this entire draft at any position. That is why he may not even last this long when all is said and done and I wouldn't be surprised to see teams attempt to trade up to secure his services since he is the last of the top tier of offensive linemen."
