With the fifty-second pick in the 2011 Cincy Jungle Mock Draft, the New York Giants select...

Mikel Leshoure, RB, Illinois

Mikel Leshoure falling this far in the draft is like Brooklyn Decker's car breaking down in front of my door step on the day I won the lottery.  Wait a second... I might be exaggerating here, but the point remains that this seems to be a no-brainer pick for the Giants.  Amhad "Fumblitis" Bradshaw and Brandon "Me Hit Man Hard.  Me Hurt Everywhere" Jacobs are both going to be free agents next year and the possibility that they resign both is virtually nill.  Leshoure seems to be the consensus #2 back in this draft, and some say he's better than Mark Ingram (OK, I didn't actually here anybody say that, I'm just making my case here).

There are certainly reasons not to take Leshoure.  Top level RB's these days are seen as luxury picks because 7th rounders and UFA's often do as well as guys like Adrian Peterson and Chris Johnson.  Also, with the passing game taking over NFL offenses, even the Giants, it makes less and less sense to draft a RB high in the draft.  Still, Leshoure is a steal here because of his production in college and versatility out of the backfield.  Plus, he won't be there in the third.  The Giants have other minor needs that could be addressed here (OL, CB, LB) but this is the best player available and a position of need.  Mikel Leshoure is the pick!
