Giants 7 Round Mock Draft (Round 6, Pick 1)

The Giants do not have a 5th round selection, as they gave it up in part of the Sage Rosenfels and Darius Reynaud deal. The 2011 NFL Draft is just days away, folks. This is the fifth part of a seven series installment in which each pick for each round of the Giants’ will be profiled. I predicted the Giants’ would draft Jason Pierre-Paul, Mitch Petrus and Dennis Landolt (UDFA) last year. I had some wrong, too. I had James Starks going to them in the fourth round, but he didn’t.

With the 185th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the New York Giants’ select:

Andre Smith, TE, Virginia Tech

There is a strong possibility the Giants will select a TE in this draft. There current #1 TE, Kevin Boss could very well be a free agent this off-season. The Giants’ might feel the need to draft an insurance policy just in case they can’t resign Boss (I think Boss will be back). Was second on his team with snaps on ST’s, which shows he can help upgrade this teams special teams unit, too. Great size, measured in at 6-5, 280 lbs. One thing I like is he could be a security blanket for QB Eli Manning over the middle with his great size. Solid blocker, which is something the Giants could use. Would give the Giants the ability to use two TE sets more often and run. Could be a nice red-zone target as well.

Not very fast, and won’t be used very much in the passing game. But with his size and strength you can even use him as a fullback if need be. Would come in right away and make an impact on special teams.

I don’t think you have to worry about Kevin Boss coming back, he seems like he’s a reliable cheap option. If they draft a Kevin Rudolph in round two they likely won’t draft another TE, but he remains a solid option.


First Round Pick (19) Mike Pouncey

Second Round Pick (52) Ras-I Dowling

Third Round Pick (83) Mason Foster

Fourth Round Pick (114) Jaiquawn Jarrett

Sixth Round Pick (185) Andre Smith

    I wanted to throw the idea out there about a receiver.What do you guys think about Jonathan Baldwin? I see alot mocks with him going anywhere in the 2nd or 3rd round.This is a guy if had played with a qb that could’ve gotten him the ball plus he played under Wannstache who loves to run the ball into the ground.Hes a BIG kid 6’5 228 runs a 4.5,do you think we should look at him in the third in a BPA scenerio? I know we’re banking on Ramses to come back healthy,Steve Smith to come back healthy and hope Devin Thomas can get his groove, and a possible Plaxico return but thats alot to hope for.What do you guys think, 3rd round a good time to consider receiver???

    Can we get a profile on Jonathan Baldwin from Pitt, when you get a chance?

    Or even Greg Little from UNC where we got Nicks,I remember Nicks saying how UNC uses alot of Giant tape to show the receivers what to do because their offenses are similiar. Greg Little is more of a 4th round pick but just thinking of receivers.

    As a Hokie and Giants fan, I love this pick. Last season the Hokies’ offense was rocking (ok … toss that Stanford game). I would love to see Virginia Tech ‘baller in blue.

    Sam: The Giants have some interest in Baldwin, as they brought him in for workout visit. However, I just don’t think they’ll draft a WR in rounds 2 or 3. I still think they have more needs then WR that early. I also think they Giants’ can find a guy who can give them depth in the later rounds. (Check my latest post).

    Greg Little is raw. He’s interesting, but raw. Kind of like Ramses Barden. I don’t think they’d take on another project like Little.

    Carrie: Interesting post, thanks!
