The NFL Draft is approaching quickly. The national attention is starting to turn away from free agency and towards the Draft since free agency is wrapping up and the draft is just one month away. We've already put together a full first round mock draft, and now we have a three round mock just for the New York Giants.
The Giants are coming off a down season and have needs at several positions. The Giants have spent plenty of money this offseason, mostly on the defensive side of the ball. With that in mind, here is the Giants' 3 Round 2016 NFL Mock Draft.
Round 1, Pick No. 10: Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame
The Giants would love Stanley, and he'll probably be the pick if he's on the board at No. 10. However, there is no guarantee Stanley will slip that far in the draft. The Giants can pair him fellow first rounder Ereck Flowers at tackle for years. If Stanley is off the board, don't be surprised if the Giants take the best player on their board. RB Ezekiel Elliott is also an option. Download the Chat Sports app for all the latest Giants and NFL Draft coverage.
Round 2, Pick No. 40: Derrick Henry, RB, Alabama
The Giants have Shane Vereen as a talented third down back, but need a feature back. Rashad Jennings can handle that role for now, but it's clear that Andre Williams is not the long-term answer. Henry could be that solution. A player in a similar mold to Brandon Jacobs, Henry could be tough to tackle in the NFL because of his size. Henry isn't the perfect back, but he'd form a wonderful pairing with Vereen, who is a better pass-catcher. If Henry is on the board in Round 2, he might not get past the Giants.
Round 3, Pick No: 71: Rashard Higgins, WR, Colorado State
The Giants have Odell Beckham at one WR spot, and are hoping that Victor Cruz rebounds after battling injuries in recent years. But that's really all the Giants have in terms of reliable options, since Dwayne Harris is more of a return specialist. The Giants lost Rueben Randle and need to take a WR in the draft this year. This is the right range for Higgins, who was productive in college. He doesn't have great speed or size, but he could be a solid No. 2 for the Giants.Back to the New York Giants Newsfeed
