This year’s BCS bowl games will be filled with potential players that can help the New York Giants. Alabama and Oklahoma will face off in the Sugar Bowl, which takes place Wednesday, January 2nd at 7:30 PM. The Giants will be looking to fill holes at linebacker, offensive line and cornerback to name a few. The below players could be players the New York Giants target in this April’s draft.
Projected Round: Top 15
A leader on the field and a three time BCS National Champion, Mosley is an intelligent football player with great instincts. He needs to improve on getting off of blocks when one on one, but that is really his only weakness. Mosley has great range when dropping into zone coverage and his ball skills are top notch for the linebacker position. Where Mosley really stars is versus the run, where he closes extremely fast and is always making plays outside of the tackle box. He is excellent at reading the run and staying home, so Mosley would be a great asset against teams like Carolina or San Francisco. He also blitzes with reckless abandon and loves to deliver the big hit.
Projected Round: 1-2
Kouandjio had an inconsistent 2013 season, and has a limited football background. He got off to too many slow starts this year, especially against Texas A&M. Kouandjio does bring exceptional run blocking skills, a staple to any Alabama offensive line under Saban. He has a lot of work to do in pass protection however, as he lunges too much leaving him vulnerable. His football instincts aren’t ideal at the moment, but that is due to his limited football background.
Projected Round: 4-6
Colvin entered the season as a potential first or second round pick, but under performed. Colvin would probably be a project corner, but value could be had in round five or six. He has a lot of work to do technique wise when in man coverage, as Colvin tends to lose his leverage too often. A phenomenal athlete with great speed, Colvin does have great ball skills and knack for making plays. Colvin is also very good against the run and can deliver a big hit. If he improves his coverage skills, Colvin could have a bright future in the NFL.
