New York Giants: Reviewing Their 2012 NFL Draft - Bleacher Report

Round 1, Pick 32: David Wilson, RB, Virginia Tech

Overall Prospect Rank: No. 33

Wilson is an explosive running back with tremendous speed and agility, while also being a hard runner who possesses size and strength.

He is best suited to be an outside runner as a speed back, but he is capable of running between tackles as well. He is a similar runner to Ahmad Bradshaw, but is a good complementary back with the ability to be a game-breaker.

Round 2, Pick 63: Rueben Randle, WR, LSU

Overall Prospect Rank: No. 62

Randle is a well-rounded receiver with the skill set to be a quality No. 2 wideout.

While he lacks top-end speed, he is a good athlete with the ability to make plays downfield, and he has good size and hands.

Randle was productive in the SEC, and he is a solid route-runner. Randle is not a big-play receiver, but he should be a reliable downfield target for the Giants.

Round 3, Pick 94: Jayron Hosley, CB, Virginia Tech

Overall Prospect Rank: No. 42

Hosley is a smooth cover corner known for being a playmaker.

He has terrific ball skills, fluid hips and is a very good athlete. Hosley’s productivity dropped from his sophomore to junior seasons, but mostly because opposing teams threw the ball his way less often.

He is undersized, tends to be overly aggressive and is a poor tackler, but he has high upside and should be a difference-maker as a nickel or dime cornerback.

Round 4, Pick 127: Adrien Robinson, TE, Cincinnati

Overall Prospect Rank: No. 375

Robinson made a name for himself at Cincinnati’s pro day, where he put up tremendous measurables (4.56 40-yard dash, 11’3’’ broad jump, 39 ½’’ vertical jump) for a 6’4’’, 264-pound tight end. He was not productive as a receiver at Cincinnati, but he has high athletic potential and is a solid blocker. Robinson may have been a stretch selection in Round 4, but he has big sleeper potential.

Round 4, Pick 131 (compensatory selection): Brandon Mosley, OT/G, Auburn

Overall Prospect Rank: No. 104

Mosley is a sound right tackle prospect who stepped up for Auburn in his senior season.

He has the potential to start on the right side, but could also be a three-position backup with the versatility to line up at guard.

Round 6, Pick 201: Matt McCants, OT, UAB

Overall Prospect Rank: No. 154

McCants has big talent as an offensive tackle, but he is raw. He has very good size, but subpar athletic ability.

He was a successful collegiate offensive lineman and All-Conference USA first-team selection, but he is a developmental project.

Round 7, Pick 239: Markus Kuhn, DT, NC State

Overall Prospect Rank: Not in Top 400

Kuhn is an athletic defensive tackle with a great frame, and he can be a disruptive force on the defensive line.

He is a raw talent who only started one season at NC State. He had limited productivity, but has good upside as a developmental project.
