Let's look around at the Giants' top pick in many of the current mock drafts out there.
I am going to stick to sites that I use frequently, and that I think have some credibility. Let's see if we come away with some type of consensus.
NFL.com, Kirwan -- Jerod Mayo, LB, Tennessee
NFL.com, Carucci -- Mayo
ESPN, McShay -- Mayo
ESPN, Kiper -- Kenny Phillips, S, Miami
CBS Sportsline, Prisco -- Phillips
CBS Sportsline, Judge -- Trevor Laws, DT, Notre Dame
NFL Draft Countdown -- Phillips
NFL Draft Scout, Rang -- Phillips
NFL Draft Scout, Reuter -- Phillips
Rivals.com -- Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB, Tennessee St.
KFFL.com -- Quentin Groves, LB, Auburn
New Era Scouting -- Dan Connor, LB, Penn State
Notice a trend here? That's five votes for Phillips, three for Mayo and every vote going to a defensive player.
I would have to think, indeed, the best defensive player on the board will be the one the Giants ultimately select.
