Mock Draft: Rounds 6 & 7

The last two years I’ve been able to nail a pick or two the Giants ended up selecting, however, this year I don’t have such a great feel for the draft. I’m not sure why, but like always, let’s go for it. I’m sure by the time draft day happens, I’ll end up changing this pick a few times, too. The Giants do not know a 5th rounder. I will post a comprehensive, and adjust mock draft Thursday afternoon, but here is my somewhat final mock draft.

Round 6

Danny Trevathan, OLB, Kentucky

Trevathan would be an ideal special teams player who could come in right away and fight for a roster spot. Might not see much time on the field before he develops, but would play special teams right away. He can run sideline to sideline with the best of them, and would be a nice fit for DC Perry Fewell.

Trevathan is a tremendous tackler who will wrap you up and make the play. Fewell would love him because of his ability to blitz.

Round 7

TE James Hanna, Oklahoma

As you all know, the Giants need a TE. They’re paper thin at the position. James Hanna would be a solid late round selection who could come in and see some snaps right away.

Here’s what the National Football Post had to say about him: “(He) Is a coordinated run/pass blocker. Understands angles, extends his arms well and showcases the ability to bend and keep his pad level under him. Slides his feet well through the play and routinely can seal defensive ends from the football and stay engaged.”

Some believe he isn’t a great blocker, however, with Pope he will be an an adequate blocker. At 6-4 he could be a solid red zone target, too.

First Round Selection: C/G Peter Konz, Wisconsin

Second Round Selection: CB Brandon Boykin, Georgia

Third Round Selection: RB, Robert Turbin, Utah State

Fourth Round Selections: CB Omar Bolden, ASU & DE Jake Bequette, Arkansas

Fith Round Selection: (No Pick)

Sixth Round Selection: Danny Trevathan, OLB, Kentucky

Seventh Round Selection: TE James Hanna, Oklahoma

    I am also a UK fan so I am bias, but Trevathan has a great motor and never gives up on plays. Would love to see him in NY Blue as a late round pick.

    I would LOVE the Trevathan pick. I’m a dual Big Blue Fan (Giants fan that went to University of KY) and I’ve gotten to watch this guy for the past few years. He is a tackling machine and performed unbelievably, playing in the best conference in college football. He has played with very little talent around him on the defensive side, certainly not making his life easy. You could maybe make the argument that his stats were a little bloated because of the lack of talent around him, but anybody that has watched this guy knows he’s just a solid football player. I haven’t really followed him closely throughout the draft process so I don’t know what his perceived weaknesses are, but I know Trevathan is a smart, savvy and instinctive linebacker with some great closing speed. Rarely misses a tackle. He’s just one of those guys that is all over the field making plays.

    If we got him in the late rounds, I would be ecstatic. I think he might be a steal for somebody, haven’t seen too many people talking about him.

    Kentucky Guys: Reminds me somewhat of a college like Greg Jones, no? Very, very productive in college and could play some Special Teams right away.

  4. Jason M says:

    Agreed…I like the idea of him joining this young group of LB’s waiting in the wings, contributing on special teams and hopefully growing into a major role. A little ahead of myself here, but that’s what getting excited about the draft is all about, right?
