NFL.com predicts the Giants first three picks in the 2017 Draft:
Mock draft season is heating up. With the 2017 NFL Draft just six weeks away, draft experts are furiously updating their big boards, watching more tape and taking stock of moves in free agency.
On Thursday, NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks broke down which prospects they believe are the best fit for the Giants. In his latest mock draft released earlier this week, Jeremiah has the Giants taking Temple linebacker Haason Reddick. Brooks' latest mock draft has Big Blue selecting Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson.
Here are the three players Jeremiah and Brooks mocked to the Giants in the first three rounds:
Round 1 (23rd overall pick):
"Let's go with offensive lineman Garett Bolles from Utah," Jeremiah said. "He's physical and nasty and kind of fits what they do there."
Round 2 (55th overall pick):
"How about defensive tackle Malik McDowell from Michigan State," Brooks said. "When you look at the tape, this is a guy that is super talented. He has the ability to take over the game. But he's inconsistent and you don't get the consistent motor that you want to see. However, get the right coach to get him going and he can get up to the quarterback. With Snacks on the inside, he compliments JPP and Olivier Vernon on the outside."
Round 3 (87th overall pick):
"One of my favorite value guys is running back Marlon Mack," Jeremiah said. "I think you can probably get him in the third or fourth round of this draft, but he's a second round type player."
Here are Giants seven picks in the 2017 NFL Draft:
Round 1 – 23rd overall
Round 2 – 55th overall
Round 3 – 87th overall
Round 4 – 140th overall
Round 5 – 167th overall
Round 6 – 207th overall
Round 7th – 241st overall
