Earlier today, Big Blue View's Invictus took on the Herculean -- and greatly appreciated -- task of doing a mock draft for all of Rounds 2 and 3 of the 2015 NFL Draft. If you missed it, high-tail it back to Invictus's mock and see who he picked for your New York Giants on Day 2 of the draft.

Now that you have done that, let's look around the Inter-Google at a variety of Round 2 mock drafts (lazy, lazy, what happened to Round 3, fellas?) and see what analysts think the Giants will do on Friday night.

Dan Kadar of SB Nation's Mocking The Draft gives the Giants UCLA defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa:

The Giants have their choice of a few defensive ends including Mississippi State's Preston Smith, but Odhizuwa is the better prospect.

Lance Zeirlein of NFL.com gives the Giants Iowa defensive tackle Carl Davis:

Davis had a huge Senior Bowl week and the Giants could use his brand of strength and quickness.

SI.com gives the Giants Alabama safety Landon Collins:

I’m not sure how the safety-poor Giants could pass on Collins, who suffered late-draft season slippage from his first-round expectation level but is still one of the elite players available in the secondary. Tom Coughlin nabs a player Alabama coach Nick Saban raves about.​

ESPN also gives the Giants Collins:

The Giants are in desperate need of an infusion of young talent and depth at the safety spot after Antrel Rolle signed with Chicago in free agency.

Nate Davis of USA Today jumps the track and gives the Giants Minnesota tight end Maxx Williams:

Why not? He kind of looks like Jeremy Shockey, and his father, Brian, was the Giants' starting center in the mid-90s. Such fluff aside, Williams is an excellent receiver who could really penalize the guts of a defense schemed to stop Odell Beckham Jr. and Victor Cruz.

Walter Football gives the Giants Florida State defensive tackle Eddie Goldman:

Goldman totaled 35 tackles, eight tackles for a loss, four sacks and a forced fumble in 2014. He came up with some huge plays that led to Florida State beating Clemson. Goldman was a wrecking ball at the line of scrimmage for the Seminoles. The 6-foot-4, 336-pounder looks like a starting candidate at nose tackle for a 4-3 or 3-4 defense. He is impossible to move in the ground game and is able to eat up double-teams. Goldman has upside to develop and be one of the toughest interior defensive linemen in the NFL.
