Ayers wasn't going to last to the Giants, but Carter was someone that would have fit right in once he is at full strength. Giants fans can't be too happy to see him in Big D.
Now With Trades!Same idea as the first two times. ?Again, anyone taken in a previous mock dream draft (take one, take two) is ineligible.
Round 1: Akeem Ayers, LB, UCLA
The Giants make a splash, trading their 1st round pick (19th) and 6th round pick (185th) pick for the Bears? 1st (29th) and 3rd (92nd ). With their first pick, they nab love-him-or-hate-him LB Akeem Ayers, who the Jets were patiently waiting to select.? Ayers has great size and athleticism, but lacks great speed. ?Still, the Giants fill a major need and get good value, while adding a third round pick.

In doing my draft research, I've come across dozens of mock drafts. ?In the past, I've found that mock drafts help me to understand the?perceived?value of certain players in the eyes of fans and experts who have had a chance to watch these players more than I have. ?No, mock drafting is not an exact science, and is often a waste of time, but it does have its uses.
Two years ago, I compiled as many mock drafts as I could find to see what the general prediction was. ?This method produce the correct answer: Hakeem Nicks. ?Obviously, this won't always be the case (last year, the same method predicted Rolando McClain), but there is some value to be had from trying to understand the general consensus.
