Posted Jan 19, 2017

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. and other Draft experts release their first set of Mock Drafts:



Mock it all you want. The 2017 NFL Draft (prediction) season has begun.

Twenty-eight teams are officially on the clock as of today, and by Sunday night, two more will join them. And even though the main event is months away, the first waves of mock drafts are rolling in with the Senior Bowl right around the corner.

>> GIANTS TO SELECT 23RD IN NFL DRAFT

Below is a look at what some of the analysts have in mind for the Giants at No. 23. The 82nd NFL Draft will be held April 27-29 in Philadelphia with Round 1 on Thursday, Rounds 2-3 on Friday, and Rounds 4-7 on Saturday.

MEL KIPER JR., ESPN

Pick: Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin

Analysis: “Ramczyk, who has had an amazing path to the NFL, is a 6-6, 314-pound road grader with all the traits of an NFL starter, but he's not a talent on the level of former Badger Joe Thomas (who is?). New York could also target a pass-rusher or tight end (none are off the board so far).”

DANIEL JEREMIAH, NFL.COM

Pick: Gerald Everett, TE, South Alabama

Analysis: “Get to know this name. Everett has a lot of similarities to Jordan Reed and he would crush it in the Giants' offensive system, surrounded by Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard.”

ROB RANG, THE SPORTS XCHANGE/CBSSPORTS.COM

Pick: Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford

Analysis: “McCaffrey isn't a bruiser but his instincts, shiftiness and soft hands out of the backfield could make him an intriguing weapon for Big Blue.”

DANE BRUGLER, NFLDRAFTSCOUT.COM

Pick: Taco Charlton, DE, Michigan

Analysis: “Charlton, who has some traits reminiscent of Justin Tuck out of Notre Dame, has all the ingredients of a NFL starter."
