With the 23rd pick in the 2017 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the New York Giants select...

Cam Robinson, OT, Alabama

The selection and write-up were made by impulseCTRLissues:

This comes down to need for the Giants. Some have discussed them taking a flyer at a QB, here. The thought being the time is about right for them to start thinking about succession planning for Eli, making this is a possible landing spot for Patrick Mahomes II, or Deshaun Watson. I can only think those rumors were being helped by the future rookies' respective agents. The Giants have a rapidly closing window of opportunity with the QB that is on the roster, someone they feel is a future HOF'er. They spent a ton on their defense in free agency last year. They seem to be interested in winning now.

In order to be immediately more competitive, the Giants need:

A Left Tackle
A Tight End
A Running Back
An Outside Line Backer

More or less in that order. The draft is deep in several of those positions, but is considered thin at OT. The Giants did not address the position in free agency, and with no other picks until 55, OT has to be one of Blue's top priority in round one. I feel that the top two offensive tackles in this draft have separated themselves from the pack. While Ramcyzk would have been my preference, Cam is a close second, and many have him rated higher. Rather than argue the minutia, I'll just leave it as this is a position of need with a hugely talented prospect available. The future will wait. The Giants are taking Cam Robinson in this spot, and their fans should be excited about that.

Pokorny: About 53% of mock drafts have the Giants taking an offensive lineman with their first-round pick. They don’t need one for pass protection so much as they do someone who can upgrade the team’s run blocking significantly, and that fits what Robinson does well.

The Oakland Raiders are up next, led by Ghenry518.
