2014 NFL mock draft: LB Anthony Barr to New York Giants with 12th pick

With the 12th pick in the 2014 Mile High Report Community Mock Draft, New York Giants GM DROPSWITCH selects...

It has been quiet a draft so far. Our draft room has been getting more and more crazy with all the top tier linemen gone. There is no way we will reach for a linemen at this spot with what is left. I have considered a receiver, but this draft is so plump I can get one in the 3rd round and be happy.

Without further adieu: with the 12th overall pick in the 2014 MHR Community Mock Draft, the New York Giants select...

Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA

I feel he is the best play maker left on the board. The giants defense wasn't impressive last year, but Barr is a player you can build your defense around. He makes very good reads and can close in on anyone.

Being converted from a running back to a linebacker lets him have a good idea of what the offense is thinking and how the running back will hit the hole.Barr brings physical play where it is desperately needed for the giants. He will set the 'Barr' for the Giants' defense.

Nice pun DROPSWITCH - let him know your thoughts on the pick in the poll and in the comments! Next up is Nastyj and the Rams pick, selecting on Saturday.
