The upcoming draft is very important for the New York Giants future. Empire Writes Back got a consensus of 18 mock drafts to get an indication of what might happen.

This year’s annual NFL Draft is scheduled for April 25-27 in Nashville, Tennessee. The New York Giants have two of the first 17 picks, and four of the top 95, so they will leave a big footprint on the draft board.

In the months leading up to the big event, the prognosticators and pundits come out with their mock drafts. Everyone in Big Blue Nation wants to find out which one of them knows what and who is being played. It’s all interesting to see how experts from all over the country interpret what the Giants needs are and how they will go about filling them.

The draft is an evolving, fluid situation, and the speculation isn’t over until a team’s pick is announced at the podium. Even then it can change. Teams make trades, lots of them. That’s why we looked at 18 different Mock Drafts across the internet. Included are ESPN, CBS Sports, Sports, 24/7, Sporting News, Walter Football, Barstool Sports, Bleacher Report, and of course FanSided.

There are plenty of different theories and opinions to consider. Obviously what happens when the Giants pick sixth, will affect what happens with the 17th pick. You’ll see how that plays out because 11 of the 18 Mock Drafts audited have the Giants drafting a quarterback. An additional three, foresee a trade involving Big Blue’s second-round pick to get a signal caller.

This piece we will cover the New York Giants first two rounds and just a quick hit on the third. Those are Round One – picks 6 & 17; Round Two – Pick 37; and Round 3 – Pick 95.
