For those New York Giants fans who think general manager Jerry Reese and team are listening to who you think they should pick with their first-round selection, there's a bridge in Brooklyn that I'd like to sell you.
Unless you have something invested behind your demands and opinions, it's simply wishful thinking and noise.
There is no such thing as a clear-cut No. 19 pick, the best you can do is look at the three likely players who might be there for the taking at that spot.
D.J. Fluker: OT
Fluker was a solid blocker at Alabama for Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon. Fluker would fill a big need for the G-Men.
Tom Coughlin has been saying all offseason that the Giants need to get back to addressing the two areas of their team that Giants are typically known for—offensive and defensive line.
Fluker might be the best available offensive tackle, and David Wilson would love to run behind this guy.
Alec Ogletree:- ILB
Ogletree has been impressing scouts around the league with his unparalleled athleticism. That alone may make him a steal—if you can call it that—at No. 19 to the G-Men.
Ogletree may be the most explosive defensive player in this draft. His nose for the football should outweigh his baggage.
Linebacker has been a much talked-about need for the past several seasons with the Giants. With Te'o's stock falling, Ogletree is smelling like a bed of fresh roses—despite his off-field troubles.
At least he doesn't have a pretend girlfriend—I think.
Bjoern Werner: DE
The Florida State defensive end is grabbing attention and could possibly be there for the Giants in the first round.
He can be a solid book-end player and would really benefit from the tutelage of Perry Fewell.
Werner is very powerful and is said to have a great motor—two skillsets that would be a welcomed addition.
He could be the perfect young complement to Jason Pierre-Paul that the Giants are looking for.
