The 2015 NFL Free Agency signing period begins on Tuesday. Who goes where in free agency could drastically alter teams' perceived needs in the upcoming 2015 NFL Draft, and by extension alter the look of mock drafts.
Because we know you love to debate them let's take one more pre-free agency look at what mock drafts around the Inter-Google currently believe the New York Giants will do with the ninth overall pick.
The focus this week, as it usually has been throughout the process to this point, is on offensive line and edge rushers. I continue to believe the Giants will try to fill their need for a starting-caliber offensive lineman via free agency, which would make picking an offensive lineman at No. 9 less likely. I also continue to believe that those who consistently have mocked under-sized edge rushers like Shane Ray of Missouri to the Giants are ignoring scheme fit, they are ignoring what the Giants have been and will continue to be with Steve Spagnuolo back as defensive coordinator -- a team running a traditional 4-3 front as its base. A 235-245 pound player doesn't work as a hand-in-the-dirt defensive end in that system.
