With the real 2014 NFL draft underway you thought we were done with mock drafts. Well, you thought wrong. The draft continues Friday night with Rounds 2 and 3, and we have a smattering of Round 2 mock drafts offering opinions on who the New York Giants will take with the 43rd overall selection.
Mocking The Draft (Fairburn) -- Louis Nix III, DT, Notre Dame
NFL.com (Brooks) -- Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington
Walter Football -- Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia
ESPN -- Joel Bitonio, OT, Nevada
Draft Tek -- Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State
CBS Sports (Rang) -- Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota
That's six mock drafts, five of which showing the choice being either an offensive or defensive lineman. The point here is less about the actual players than about the fact that it's obvious that analysts think the Giants will be looking to bolster their lines during Day 2 of the draft. That dovetails nicely with Jesse's breakdown of potential Day 2 targets. Jesse wrote:
" ... the Giants will have a great opportunity to address their offensive or defensive line with a player who was considered a first-round pick at one point or another recently."
