These are the debates that will be waged in front offices across the NFL in the coming days and weeks, up until commissioner Roger Goodell steps in front of the podium at Radio City Music Hall.
In our "Make the Case" web series, we look at the selections provided by two NFL draft experts and their reasons why. Then we ask you, the fans, to weigh in on which player you would like the Giants to select if available at No. 12.
Today's debate is on two linebackers. In recent mock drafts, NFL.com's Bucky Brooks projects the Giants to select Alabama's C.J. Mosley, while NFLDraftScout.com analyst Dane Brugler has Anthony Barr out of UCLA.

The Giants' pass rush isn't what it once was and Barr would be a welcome addition to New York's front-seven where he could grow into a hybrid role as a strongside linebacker and defensive end.
