SB Nation Writers Mock Draft: Round 2, Pick #60


No.60

NEW YORK
GIANTS

Pick by Big Blue View

Mike Mickens
Cornerback

Cincinnati

 

Another day of the SB Nation writers mock draft comes to a close with the latest pick from Big Blue View's EtVal.

I was really conflicted as to what to do with this pick. I have already taken a wide receiver (Darrius Heyward-Bey, 29) and offensive tackle (William Beatty, 45). I was sorely tempted to grab either Shonn Greene or Rashad Jennings, probably the best two running backs available. I felt like this pick needed to be defense, though, and Mickens seems to have the biggest upside of any of the defenders left at linebacker or in the secondary. Besides, the Giants lost Sam Madison, R.W. McQuarters can't cover anybody anymore, and the way the game is played now you can never have too many corners who can cover. This seemed like the best way to upgrade the depth on the defensive side of the ball.

MTD thoughts: This is a little bit of a reach for Mickens, who might not do well covering shifty slot receivers. I also like Victor Harris more, a player with a similar skillset.
