SPOTLIGHT:

Giants mock draft tracker 1.0

Posted by Dan Salomone on January 18, 2013 – 9:17 am

With the 2013 class set, mock drafts will be flooding in between now and the end of April. ESPN Insider Mel Kiper released his first of the year on Wednesday (a day after the deadline for underclassmen to petition for the 2013 NFL Draft), and even he reminded everyone — “it’s early, folks.”

Here is Kiper’s first pick for the Giants, who hold the 19th selection in the first round:

NAME: Sam Montgomery
SCHOOL: LSU
POS: DE
AGE: 22
HT: 6-5
WT: 260

Kiper: “It was just a year ago at this time when we considered the pass rush a major strength of the Giants, with an emerging Pierre-Paul and veterans Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora. But while JPP is now among the best 4-3 defensive ends in the league, the latter two will both be north of 30 by the time the draft arrives — Umenyiora may not be around next season, and it could be the final year for Tuck in New York. If the Giants want to keep the defensive line a strength, a proven, high-motor defender with pass-rushing skills such as Montgomery would make a lot of sense.”

*Let us know if you agree with Kiper’s selection and stay tuned to Giants.com throughout the offseason for our mock draft tracker.

    MANTI TEO OR ALEC OLGOTREE

  2. By Pat Collins on Jan 17, 2013 | Reply

    IF we draft another DE, at some point we will need to trade or acquire through Free Agency a top quality Linebacker.

  3. By Stacey on Jan 17, 2013 | Reply

    The Giants need a CB, Xavier Rhodes would be a great pick as the first pick

  4. By Stacey on Jan 17, 2013 | Reply

    Draft Ezekiel Ansah in rd 1 if he’s on the board…..2nd coming of JPP or Alec Olgetree to take over ILB position

    Rd.2, if Xavier is still on the board snatch him up(unless we sign Jenkins away from the cowboys) Arthur Brown & Anthony Barr @ OLB if they’re on the board & Xavier is gone. Speed on the Defense is key

    Rd.3 Mike Gillislee or sleeper picks Michael Dyer/Stefphon Jefferson-who is a much better receiver out of the backfield

    Rd.4 Kwame Geathers is a Mountain to plug the middle @ DT

    Rd.5 Our secondary needs upgrading so with all of the top flight, high profiled safties gone..Duke Williams,Phillip Thomas, Isaiah Johnson

    RD.6 Going to OT’s we have Seantrel Henderson who played @ the U.Tanner Hawkinson who is a project but has upside

    Rd.7 going back to the defensive side of the ball Cameron Lawrence,Mike Taylor and Michael Clay & Ray Ray Armstrong if they’re still on the board.

    Undrafted Free agents: Quinn Sharp, Nick O’Leary,Zack Martin,James Stone, Aaron Tipoti, T.J. Barnes

    What about Teo as a posible choice

  6. By fredsfocus on Jan 18, 2013 | Reply

    I have no idea what is in the head of the Notre Dame linebacker, but, at this point, considering someone who has acted (acted-out) the way he has, would mitigate against putting him on a team of differently directed athletes.

  7. By Toscano on Jan 18, 2013 | Reply

    Dion Jordan out of Oregon. Fast DL, could play OLB. Ansah is a good pick but i am not sure if he will be JPP type. JPP is one of a kind.

    Reese will pick the best available here though. We all know that! No matter who it is. Cant wait till April!

    I can see it….JR is intrigued with DE’s………..

  9. By Will on Jan 18, 2013 | Reply

    I really think that DE is the way to go here. Especially in this day and age, where the quarterback position is so dominant in the NFL, LB is not the position that will win you championships (at least not as much as DE and CB). Yes, it would be ideal to have an Alec Ogletree to combat an RGIII, or even a Te’o to help shore up the run defense. But an Ansah/Montgomery combo with JPP on the other side could be DEVASTATING for years to come! With Tuck getting a little long in the tooth, this is what you need. We have talent at LB. It wouldn’t suprise me in the least if Herzlich (Te’o’s role) and Williams (Ogletree’s role) become big contributors down the road. Oh, and a better pass rush means a better secondary, I should add.

  10. By Tom Haufe on Jan 18, 2013 | Reply

    Good pick. What was lacking this year was the strong pass rush of last year. No pass rush means pressure on DB’s and they are the next position to target in the draft.

  11. By Paul on Jan 19, 2013 | Reply

    Everybody’s thinking defense, but how many more years are we going to have to see speed rushers sprinting past David Diehl before we start paying more attention to the O-Line? I think we can only get away with playing fifth rounders, undrafted free agents, and other teams retreads for so long before Eli gets his brains bashed in.

  12. By Jan on Jan 19, 2013 | Reply

    The Giants need major Help stopping the run!!!! We need LB we need CB but we NEED DT’s who can plug the middle and creat problems and collapse the pocket!! So I say DT CB DE LB in the order I would personally go in. The D line is the deepest part of this draft so mine as well take the best you can get to stuff the middle.

  13. By E Or on Jan 19, 2013 | Reply

    IF we can sign someone like Cliff Avril via free agency than we can draft someone like Tel or Ogletree if not than Dion Jordan or Alex Placid out of Texas would be nice. The combine will no doubt change my perspective.

  14. By a on Jan 20, 2013 | Reply

    Why in the world would we draft a d linemen?? we need linebackers & corners.

  15. By M. Simpson on Jan 20, 2013 | Reply

    It’s tough. Montgomery looks like he can be a real impact player. If the Giants are committed to the 4-3 Defense, then you have to go D-Line. It’s clear that the Defense suffers from less than stellar play at LB and at corner. So, if they draft Montgomery, then we have to really luck up and find athletes for the LB and DB positions later in the draft, or through free agency.

  16. By m. mendez on Jan 20, 2013 | Reply

    id go with either a cornerback in the first round. then snatch a inside and a outside linebacker in the 2nd and 3rd round. I would take Xavier Rhodes 1st. Sean Porter or Nico Johnson in the 2nd and 3rd round. and sign either Richard Seymour or Randy Starks as a defensive tackle in free agency.

  17. By M on Jan 20, 2013 | Reply

    As low as his stock probably is after a mediocre season, I would trade Webster for a later draft pick and Jenkins or Carr from the Cowboys, grab this Montgomery guy or a LB in the first round, and spend the pick we get from Webster on a speedy coverage back. The Giants usually get premium players from the latter rounds anyway, so why not go with a tested and successful theory? Granted, Wilson, Manning and JPP were all 1st round picks, but Amukamara has been slowly developing as a first rounder while Ahmad Bradshaw, our fiery, vocal and well-capable starting RB was drafted near the end of the 7th round ahead of the 2007 Super Bowl season.

  18. By Al on Jan 21, 2013 | Reply

    Too bad Jadeveon Clowney’s going to be gone long before the 19th pick! What a bookend to add to JPP on the other side. But, wishful thinking isn’t a bad thing! And, stay away from Manti Teo. Too slow and, a possible head case! Got abused in the BCS Championship game!

  20. By bobby on Jan 22, 2013 | Reply

    we have running backs. wilson is going to explode next year,and bradshaw and brown can wear down a defense. our linebackers are alot better than people think. we need a defensive end to take up the slack,and keep double teams of of JPP. tuck is getting up there we need a future playmaker on the left side

  21. By Andrew McGregor on Jan 22, 2013 | Reply

    DE can be addressed in the latter rounds. We still have JPP and Tuck and i think Kiwi would play better in the DE rotation along with Adewale Ojomo. Reese probably won’t admit it but i’m sure he would of loved to of moved up in the draft last year to select Doug Martin, David wilson is good but he not a workhorse RB like Martin. Rush defense and pass defense were horrible. 1st round DT, 2nd CB 3rd Round RB,4th round DT and then o line depth

  22. By Anonymous on Jan 22, 2013 | Reply

    Alec Ogletree will be the 1st number one pick,i think is the right answer to the next generation type of offenses in the NFL..and is also an outstanding playmaker in my opinion

  23. By bobby on Jan 22, 2013 | Reply

    Every year the giants are supposed to draft a left tackle, and a middle linebacker.WE havent taken a backer in round 1 since 1984 or a tackle since 1999. reese will take the best player on the board whether its a corner, end, or whatever.Canty was hurt for the first 8 weeks, he will be the beast run stopper that he is along with Joseph. We need depth behind Tuck

  24. By Maui Ozzie on Jan 22, 2013 | Reply

    With over 20 Free Agents ourselves and many needs, Jerry is gonna be busy for the next 4 months! We need to re-sign Cruz, Martellus, Beatty, Boothe, Locklear, Andre Brown and Stevie Brown. I’d like to see us get Blackburn back too but not as a starter. Thn we have the following needs: OT, DE, DT, LBs and CB. We all know JR will pick BPA but he HAS to fill those needs at the same time. My first 4 rounds would go:

    1. Alec Ogletree,LB – beast of a defender
    2. Barrett Jones, OT/C/OG – All-American as C, G & T
    3. Kwame Geathers, DT – a “Mountain of a Man”
    4. Ricky Wagner, OT – if he’s still on the board

    We should also try to snag Martellus’ brother Michael Bennett (DE) as well as a veteran CB in Free Agency. Rounds 5-7 we should grab more help on the O Line, more speed in LB and a developmental QB (David Carr is worthless and Eli needs an understudy as he won’t be around forever).

  25. By leftcoaster on Jan 23, 2013 | Reply

    Giants have way too many holes to fill this year via the draft. I think it’s imperative they sign free agents: CB, OL, ILB, OLB, DT, DE.

    Somebody get us a nose tackle, for crying out loud. My sister can run on the Giants inside. And when was the last time a LB made a tackle? Giants have the 3 most mediocre LB’s in the league. Get us a OLB/pass rusher or a MIke who can actually stuff the run.

    As for the secondary, Stevie Thompson is the only bright spot, After spending #1’s on the likes of Aaaron Ross and Prince Amukamara, we still need corners. Corey Webster looks like he’s done. They should change his name to toast. And can Kenny Phillips ever stay on the field again? Secondary is in trouble.

    Like I said, too many holes to fill.

  26. By strahan92 on Jan 23, 2013 | Reply

    We need a DL to guy with Linval. We’re getting gashed up the middle and can’t stop the run…a Barry Cofield like guy. We got Austin the bust, raw Kuhn, injured Canty and old man. That’s why they signed Shaun Rogers but he was gravely ill.

    We need a DE, two CB, LB, RB, OL.

    We need to cut Jernigan, Da’Rell Scott if they don’t step up. Diehl and Webster have to go.

    WHO IS STEVIE THOMPSON? THE GIANTS DONT NEED A NOSE TACKLE. WE RUN THE 4-3 DEFENSE NOT A 3-4

    Giants should take Barret Jones 1st rd. We need a bigger center.

  29. By Nick on Jan 25, 2013 | Reply

    have you seen our secondary? how long are we gunna watch the back four play zone and get picked apart. Webster is winding down. Thomas and Phillips cant seem to stay off the injury report. Rolle is at the end of his career. and Prince has been spotty at times. The only glimmer of hope i have seen was out of Brown. Yes it is great that we get tons of pressure on the QB but that doesnt matter if our secondary cant cover for more than three seconds. when the season winds down in the later weeks, being able to cover WRs is of paramount importance. Coverage extends a play long enough for our linemen to crush the QB.
    look at our 2007 run from Spagnolo’s defense. It wasnt just our front four getting to the QB. I cant count how many times i watched Thomas come off the slot receiver and overload blitz. Amazing thing to watch. Now, we just sit back and hope we can get pressure with four. The only time that seems to work is against Tom Brady in the Superbowl.
    In my 20 years of being a Giant fan i dont think ive ever seen the giants have a shutdown corner. Or even a secondary that’s feared by opposing offenses. Im sorry if that is a bit negative but here is an opportunity to fulfill these vacancies, and i have faith that our staff will get the job done. The Giants always kill the draft, credit to the GM Reese and the Mara family.

    Xavier Rhodes or Johnatan Banks would be awsome picks if we dont go D-line. Banks is a true cover corner

    The positions of DL, DB, and OL are all very important right now. Although I do believe we could use an athletic MLB such as Ogletree as oppose to Te’o to counter this division’s athleticism with RG3 and now Chip Kelly and Company. I do believe that we can survive without drafting a first round MLB due to the fact that we went won the Super Bowl with Chase Blackburn. DE is what I feel we should address in the first round, simply because there is not really an OL or DB worthy of #19.

    Round 1- Ansah, Montgomery, Jordan. I favor Ansah of the 3 because of his upside. Montgomery, although the most NFL ready, didn’t overwhelm me, and I question his potential (reminds me of Derrick Morgan). Jordan is by far the most talented pass rusher of the 3, but his ability against the run (weighs 240) and durability is a slight concern for me. I do not feel know if he would fit our 4-3 system, but he would be an excellent 3-4 OLB.

    Round 2- Best available DB or OL. Barrett Jones would be a steal at this point, but there is a slim chance he will still be there when we pick in Rd. 2. Same goes for Xavier Rhodes; but if either one is on the board, NYG will have to take them. A DT such as Shariff Floyd would also be a possibility.

    Round 3- Depending on who we pick in Round 2, I feel that this is the spot for a MLB, more specifically Khaseem Greene/ Arthur Brown. If we are not fortunate to pick either a DB or OL in Rd. 2, we will pick one here.

    Round 4- At this point we would have to had picked 2 of the following 3: DB/OL/LB. Whichever is missing, select the best available at that position.
