When we first started tracking 2015 NFL mock drafts back in January, the early consensus that formed for the New York Giants was that Iowa offensive lineman Brandon Scherff was the most likely selection at No. 9. As tired as the subject is, that consensus really has not changed with less than two weeks to go before the real 2015 NFL Draft. Which, incidentally, can't come soon enough.
In this week's look at mock drafts around the Inter-Google, Scherff is the selection in five of the 14 new mock drafts listed, that's 35.7 percent. Our recent poll asking which offensive lineman the Giants should take at No. 9 -- if, of course, they take an offensive lineman there -- found Scherff to be the most popular choice. Of 950 votes, Scherff received 295 (31 percent). Andrus Peat got 25 percent of the vote, La'el Collins 23 percent and Ereck Flowers 5 percent.
In this week's mocks, cornerback Trae Waynes, offensive tackle Ereck Flowers and defensive tackle Danny Shelton were each selected twice.
None of this, obviously, means that the Giants will take Scherff. We still don't know if the Giants are in the 'Scherff is a guard' camp or in the 'he will be just fine at tackle' camp. We don't know if they like someone else more. We don't know if they would prefer to go elsewhere in the first round and grab offensive line help later.
All we know is that the draft process is coming to an end pretty much where it began months ago -- with Scherff being the player most often associated with the Giants in the first round.
