Make the Case: DE Randy Gregory vs. OT Ereck Flowers

"We have to draft this player because he can do A,B, C."

"No, we should select that prospect because he can do X,Y,Z."

These are the debates that will be waged in front offices across the National Football League in the coming weeks, up until the first day of the 2015 NFL Draft on April 30 in Chicago and through its conclusion on May 2.

With our "Make the Case" series on Giants.com, we look at projections provided by two draft experts and then ask you, the fans, to weigh in on which player you would like the Giants to select with the ninth pick in the first round.

In this debate, we feature Univerisity of Miami offensive tackle Ereck Flowers and Nebraska outside

linebacker/defensive end Randy Gregory, who were recent topics of debate in "Path to the Draft" on NFL Network.

As a junior in 2014, the 6-foot-6, 329-pound Flowers started all but one game at left tackle and was a second-team All-ACC selection.

Meanwhile, Gregory, 6-5, 235, finished ninth on his school's all-time sack list after playing just two seasons. As a junior in 2014, Gregory was second-team All-American and first-team Big Ten.OT Ereck Flowers, MiamiDE Randy Gregory, Nebraska

"While they have different body types, Flowers will have some of the same strengths and flaws 2014 first-round pick Greg Robinson had coming in. Flowers has the size, feet and talent to be a very good left tackle but he will be a work in progress unless he can eliminate some of the balance issues that could plague him."

"That's one possibility. Steve Spagnuolo, the new defensive coordinator of the Giants, [they] have got to get better against the run…When Steve Spagnuolo won a Super Bowl in 2007, they had that NASCAR line -- all pass rushers, four defensive ends. I think he may have a little influence, a little conversation about that."
