Super Bowl XLII re-air on FOX; Giants launch second-screen experience

NFL.com's Adam Rank unveils "what teams SHOULD do" mock draft
NFL.com's Adam Rank recently released his third annual mock draft ... with a twist.
"This is not to be a predictive piece by any stretch," he wrote, "but instead I will use my consulting services to help nudge teams in the right direction and tell them what they should do on April 23."
For the Giants at No. 4, Rank picked Ohio State cornerback Jeff Okudah. LSU quarterback Joe Burrow went No. 1 overall to Cincinnati, followed by Ohio State defensive end Chase Young to Washington and Clemson linebacker/safety Isaiah Simmons to Detroit.
"Okudah's the bacon-wrapped shrimp you simply cannot pass up," Rank wrote. "Now, you could try to trade down a few spots to a QB-needy team and come away with an offensive tackle like Tristan Wirfs."
