I used to embarrass myself on a yearly basis with a mock draft for my old newspaper. But now that I have my own blog, I can avoid all that by simply not doing a mock and telling you that I firmly believe, if one or the other falls, that the Giants will take either Alabama linebacker Rolando McClain or South Florida defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul with the 15th pick. In fact, I'm so sure of those two names that they might even trade up a few spots to get one of them.
There. That's my prediction. And since I know who most everybody out there wants, I have a project for you. Tell me how those players get to No. 15. I want your 32-team, first-round mocks. Just the team and the player, no lengthy explanation needed. But if you want to give one, go right ahead.
Just a heads-up here, too. I'm going to be busy with other issues starting around mid-afternoon. I'll be ducking out later, and you won't hear from me until probably early tomorrow afternoon, which we all know is the first round of the draft. Of course, I'll be at Giants Central to give you the complete rundown.
Anyway, get those mocks going.
