Coming at us all the way from England (g'day, mate), Coolbreeze3 has his pick ready and is at the podium...
With the 9th pick in the 2015 BRB Mock Draft the New York Football Giants select… Danny Shelton (NT -- Washington).
If this were a real draft I would have gone with Brandon Scherff. This however is a fake draft, so I thought the NY G-Men would like some beef in the middle to help Jason Pierre-Paul sack Tony Romo as much as possible. Shelton will be a force in the run game once he has a little time to adjust to the NFL.
Additionally, Shelton should add above-average pass rush from the NT position and that’s just gravy. Sure, there are plenty of other ways I could have gone with this pick, but in the end I went with who I believed was the best player on the board at his position and couldn’t pass him up.
Big body Danny Shelton (6'2", 339 pounds) seems like he'd fit right in with the New York Giants. Though Eli Manning's clutch heroics get much of the credit, Big Blue won two Super Bowls (both against the Patriots!) on the backs of their defensive linemen, who consistently pressured Tom Brady without extra blitzers. Shelton could certainly help that cause while helping improve the Giants' poor run defense (30th in yards allowed, 4.9 ypa against).
Shelton also has the added bonus of having experience against Oregon, notching 8 tackles and half a sack against them this past year -- experience that certainly doesn't hurt when facing Chip Kelly's Eagles twice a year.
Here's what Dane Noble of Windy City Gridiron had to say about Shelton after selecting him at #7 in SBNation's blogger mock draft:
Shelton is big, wide, heavy and strong, and capable of attracting double teams all game long. He’s a rock in the middle, and can shut down an inside running game all by himself. Shelton is a plug-and-play guy from Day 1, and definitely someone you can build a front seven around.
Big thanks to Coolbreeze3 for getting his pick in, in spite the time difference. El Torito and St. Louis Rams are up. Your pick is due by 12 PM CT today! Good luck.
