In Rotoworld analyst Josh Norris' latest mock draft, the Giants nab former Missouri defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson with the 19th selection in the first round.

Richardson, ranked as the No. 2 player at his position by NFL Network's Mike Mayock, sits only behind Florida's Shariff Floyd in terms of the best interior defensive linemen.

According to Norris, the addition of Richardson to Big Blue improves the team's interior pass rush. Though with his stock rising, it is not out of the realm of possibility Richardson is gone, in which case Norris expects the Giants to target UCLA's Datone Jones.

The Jets have been doing their due diligence on this year's core of receiver prospects, with reports that the Jets have set up private workouts with several of the draft's top prospects at the position such as Notre Dame's Michael Floyd and South Carolina's Alshon Jeffrey. ?It's no secret that the Jets are in need of a receiver and are likely to target one early to get Mark Sanchez some help in his pivotal fourth season as a pro.

Following the jump, here's a breakdown of the draft's top eight receivers, all of whom have at least a second round grade.

For the next couple of weeks I will try to go over the holes that this team has going into the NFL Draft with their options on how to deal with it along with how I think they should approach it

The Problem:?During the 2011 season the Jets struggled to get their passing game going. They finished the season 21st in passing offense, their best receiver, Dustin Keller, finished with a total of 815 yards, and Santonio Holmes struggled to get separation for most of the season, finishing with just 654 yards. Although, Santonio has the ability to be a threat on the fly pattern, overall his real strength is that slant pattern that he did so well during the 2010 season. But for that to work the Jets need to sign a credible deep threat next to him to take opposing defenses away from Santonio a little. The Jets thought Plax could be that guy, but he was not, and now they need to find a deep threat that defenses have to game plan for.
