2011 NFL Draft: A Surprise For Giants In SB Nation Mock Draft -- Derek Sherrod

For this week’s SB Nation NFL Mock Draft it sort of seems like SB Nation’s Brian Galliford dumped all the names in a hat, shook ‘em up and grabbed at random. That isn’t meant as a a knock, it is just meant to illustrate that there seems to be a considerable amount of movement this week.

How does that concern the New York Giants? Well, SB Nation’s selection for the Giants is Mississippi State offensive tackle Derek Sherrod — a name I have barely seen connected to the Giants and one rarely chosen for them in mock drafts.

Sherrod [full profile] does fit the general consensus that the Giants will go offensive line with the 19th selection of the first round. Normally, though, he isn’t the guy folks seem to think of in these mock drafts.

Left on the SB Nation when this pick was made? Florida OG/C Mike Pouncey, Wisconsin tackle Gabe Carimi, Colorado tackle Nate Solder, Illinois defensive tackle Corey Liuget and UCLA outside linebacker Akeem Ayers. Sherrod might not be a “wrong” selection here, but current pre-draft buzz would indicate that any of those players is a more likely pick by Giants General Manager Jerry Reese than Sherrod.
