We here at FanSided like to keep ahead of the curve, avoid the Christmas rush as it were, so here is our up to date NFL Mock Draft report.
The Giants are currently slated to choose #24 in next years draft if the season ended today, which of course it doesn’t, and here is the analysis from our Mock Draft Expert:
24. New York Giants – Tyler Eifert – TE/Notre Dame
Two “Domers” taken in the first round?! He’s no Manti Te’o but Tyler Eifert is looking more and more like he will be a first round pick for the Giants. Martellus Bennett has shown them what a good pass catching tight end can do for Eli Manning, but he’ll likely bolt and capitalize on his success with a big contract somewhere else. Eifert has the ability to be a pass catching tight end but could be developed as a fine blocker as well.
Here is the flaw in this analysis as I see it. A good pass catching tight end doesn’t make Eli better….Eli elevates the players around him. Martellus Bennett hasn’t made Eli better, Eli has made Martellus better, along with the Giants coaching staff. Not sure Bennett will just say “Thanks for letting me show I’m a viable target, but I’m leaving” He might just want to stay with the ELIte QB he currently has, and remain where he could win a championship…or two.
