With the #29 pick in the 2009 MHR Community Mock Draft, the New York Giants select....
WR, DARRIUS HEYWARD-BEY, MARYLAND
New York Giants
Round 1, Pick #29 overall
Details of the pick after the jump...
From GM Russ: With Plaxico Burress finally gone, the Giants lack a go-to wide receiver. None of the current WRs on the roster appear capable of being the main target for Manning. Heyward-Bey could easily turn into the main threat that the Giants now need--Heyward-Bey being quite a vertical threat. This is a risky pick, but the Giants can probably afford a little risk in the first round. Kenny Britt also received consideration here, but Heyward-Bey stood out just a little bit more.
Commish's Thoughts: If replacing burress is the order for the day, Darrius is about as close as they can come in the first round. I agree with the thought that the Giants have earned the right to take a risk or two while working towards maintaining their roster, and they could make out like bandits on this pick.
ON THE CLOCK
Tennessee Titans are up next. Broncoman is up and he has an itchy trigger finger. Time to see who he has had his eye on this whole time.
The deadline for this pick is NOON MST, April 11th. As long as I receive the pick by that time it will be valid. To send me the pick, just email me at the address shown in my profile.
