This week's look around the Inter-Google at 2015 NFL mock draft choices for the New York Giants shows a fairly heavy belief that the Giants will take an offensive lineman with their first-round pick. But, which one? Brandon Scherff on Iowa? Andrus Peat of Stanford? La'el Collins of LSU? Ereck Flowers of Miami? There are also lots of votes for Alabama safety Landon Collins.

Let's look at this week's mock draft table:

Mocking The Draft's Dan Kadar wrote this about Collins:

Collins would give the Giants flexibility. If they want to put Justin Pugh at guard, Collins could come in and start at tackle. Collins is also capable of moving inside to guard where he could show off his brute strength in the run game.

Rang says Collins would bring a much-needed "intimidating presence" to the Giants' secondary.

Brugler says Peat "has some wrinkles to iron out, but the coordinated body control and potential are top 10 pick worthy."

Here is Draft Ace on the selection of Collins:

The Giants have been playing without a true strong safety for a number of years, having used Antrel Rolle, Quintin Demps, Stevie Brown, Deon Grant and others. With Collins sitting on the board it's the opportune time to finally address the situation. This feels like a perfect blend of value and need.
