Giants Beware: Top 3 Draft Prospects to avoid

The Giants have the No. 9 overall pick in the 2015 Draft and there are several players the Giants should look to draft, but here are three the Giants should stay away from.

DeVante Parker, WR, Louisville

Parker has all the talent to become an excellent WR for any team in the NFL, however, in terms of need, the Giants have depth at Wide Receiver. The No. 9 overall pick enables flexibility, though that should come with prudence, and while it is wise to draft talent, at this position in the draft, there is a plethora of talent. Moreover, with the return on Victor Cruz, it is likely the receiver position will be one of strength and depth. No need to add one more receiver when there are plenty of other positions of need to fill. In addition, there is a large of capable receivers, and the Giants would be able to draft one in the later rounds if they desire.

Brandon Scherff, OL, Iowa

Scherff has long arms and had a solid time at the 40 yard dash. That being said, Iowa is known as a physical football team with an emphasis in the Big Ten on run first offensive approaches. Though, with the NFL becoming an increasingly pass happy league, teams need more athletic offensive lineman who can handle speed rushers both on the outside and in the middle.

Vic Beasley, OLB, Clemson

Watching the ACC this season, Beasley’s dominance was not on the same level this season as in seasons past. This is largely due to an injury plagued campaign. But, even with the injuries, he struggled to make an impact even against mediocre teams such as Syracuse and Boston College. He has a lot of potential and promise, however, due to his injuries and his lack of dominance in the ACC this season, this player is one to stay away from with the No. 9 pick.
