2011 NFL Draft: New York Giants Cooling On Anthony Castonzo?

New, 2 comments

SB Nation just posted their latest (and final) 2011 NFL mock draft. Brian Galliford has BC's Anthony Castonzo going to the New York Giants with the 19th overall pick in the Draft.

"Tackle was a mess for the Giants last year. Castonzo addresses that need, and should also appeal to Tom Coughlin hailing from BC."

Sports Illustrated agrees that Castonzo is headed to the Giants, citing an "aging offensive line and a history of picking former B.C. Eagles."

The Newark Star-Ledger's Mike Garafolo isn't so sure, reporting that the Giants may not be as high on Castonzo as some mock drafters think:

"The Giants aren't as high on Boston College offensive tackle Anthony Castonzo as many have speculated. Indications are they like what they see from Castonzo, whom many experts have pegged as their pick in mock drafts, but aren't enamored with him."

Other final mock drafts weight in: The Big Lead has Castonzo unavailable by the time the Giants pick. TBL has him going 13th to the Lions. So does BC's Mike Mayock. ESPNDallas.com's Bryan Broaddus has Castonzo going in the top 10 to Dallas with the 9th overall pick

We'll likely know Castonzo's fate in a few short hours.
