New York Giants select Prince Amukamara No. 19 in NFL Draft

The Giants are one of the teams to really benefit from surprising choices and a run on quarterbacks in the first 12 picks.

With plenty of top players falling, the Giants were able to sit back and take a potential star like Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara with their pick. No one was expecting the Giants to take a cornerback this early. But a player like Amukamara probably shouldn't have been available with the 19th pick. With Amukamara, the Giants have a big cornerback who they can plug in and start immediately. 

According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, the Giants may have taken Colorado offensive tackle Nate Solder. New England pick Solder 17th.
