Opinions vary as to what the Giants should do with the 10th overall pick. Let's break down the mocks.

The 2016 NFL Draft is a month away, and there is little to no consensus among draft analysts regarding what the New York Giants should do with the 10th overall selection in the draft.

Notre Dame offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley and Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott are the players most often selected in the 43 mock drafts listed in our database. Each player was chosen eight times, or 18.6 percent of the time. They are followed closely by Clemson defensive end Shaq Lawson and Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell, each chosen six times, or 14 percent of the time.

With three of the four most-often selected players being offensive ones, you might think that indicates a strong preference for an offensive pick at No. 10. Not Necessarily. Michigan State offensive tackle Jack Conklin and Baylor wide receiver Corey Coleman were each chosen once, the only other offensive players selected. In 24 of the 43 picks (55.8 percent) were offensive players.

The 10th pick in the draft appears to put the Giants in an interesting spot where they would have a multitude of options for which a good case could be made. Depending on your viewpoint, your own personal evaluation, and how the board falls in the preceding nine picks, you can probably also make a reasonable argument for any of the 15 players whose names are offered up in our mock drafts.
