The second round starts in a little under four hours, and the Giants still don't have a middle linebacker. They pick 14th in this round due to the shifting of teams with 8-8 records.
As I said last night, I'm thinking Penn State's Sean Lee is going to be the pick if he's there, considering the Giants are believed to have high grades on him. And don't be surprised if they move up a few notches to get him. It's in the later rounds that Jerry Reese has made his trades in the past. But whatever you do, don't expect Osi Umenyiora to be part of the package. Reese -- and I do take him at his word on this -- said he's not trading Umenyiora.
Of course, there's also a good possibility the Giants won't go MLB in the second round. There's still a good defensive tackle out there in UCLA's Brian Price, and a small-school DT they looked intrigued with in William and Mary's Sean Lissemore. They could also grab a running back like Stanford's Toby Gerhart, or a blocking tight end. Or maybe an offensive lineman.
Don't think they'll go into the secondary or wide receiver or quarterback spots, however. But that's just me.
