Just for fun I checked 16 mock drafts this morning from sites I respect. The most oft-picked player for the Giants was Stanford TE Coby Fleener (5 times). Stanford T Jonathan Martin and Alabama LB Dont’a Hightower were selected three times each. Also picked for the Giants (once each) were Boise State RB Doug Martin, USC DE Nick Perry, Notre Dame S Harrison Smith, South Carolina CB Stephon Gilmore, and Ohio State T Mike Adams.

"Inside linebacker, nickel backer, defensive end and odd rusher," Saban said of Hightower at Alabama’s recent pro day. "He does all those things very well, he is very smart and he has leadership qualities."
Pro Football Talk picked LSU wide receiver Reuben Randle for the Giants at No. 32.
