NFL.com draft sage Gil Brandt, former Dallas Cowboys executive, held a Twitter Q&A Wednesday regarding the upcoming 2014 NFL Draft. Here are some of Brandt's thoughts on players who might be of interest to the New York Giants.
When it comes to draft talk around these parts, everything starts with Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan.
.@DarrenBoyd13 Off-field issues are a bit exaggerated. he would be my 3rd OT, a top-10 pick. Arms not as long as you want them— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) April 29, 2014
.@EnK1982 Robinson, Matthews, Fisher, Joeckel, Lewan, Johnson ... in that order. All very good players.— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) April 29, 2014
Cody Latimer, the wide receiver from Indiana, is a player who has been moving up draft boards and might be intirguing for the Giants if he is available on Day 2.
.@JerdNumin They say everything is fine in @CodyLatimer3's foot; if true, top of second. Outside chance bottom of 1st— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) April 29, 2014
Penn State wide receiver Allen Robinson is a player many like for the Giants. [Prospect Profile] Brandt thinks he might fall to Round 3.
.@Topps122MJ There's chance Robinson could fall out of 2nd. Teams will have to weigh production vs. speed. Very good production.— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) April 29, 2014
Brandt, like everyone else, loves the depth of the wide receivers in this draft class.
.@StephenByrne18 Chance that 6 WRs go in 1st on high end. Thing some will fall to 2nd because of depth.— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) April 29, 2014
Brandt believes North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron should come off the board somewhere around the Giants' pick at No. 12.
.@WeezyF_Brady @Ebron85's area is 11-17. I have him ranked 13th, right behind Cooks and Beckham.— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) April 29, 2014
