This year’s BCS bowl games will be filled with potential players that can help the New York Giants. The first bowl that will break down will be the Fiesta Bowl, which takes place Wednesday, January 1st at 6:30 PM. The Giants will be looking to fill holes at linebacker, offensive line and cornerback to name a few. The below players could be players the New York Giants target in this April’s draft.
Cyril Richardson, G, Baylor
Projected Round: Round 1-2
Another solid guard prospect in the 2014 is Cyril Richardson, whose stock might shoot up as we get closer to draft day. Richardson anchored one of the most explosive offenses in the country this year, and opened plenty of holes for running back Lache Seastrunk. As a Hurricane Katrina refugee, Richardson missed two years of high school football so he still has some work to do in terms of pass protection and knowledge of the game. However, his run blocking is best fit for a power running game and he is very good at it. While not the best athlete, Richardson’s size (6’4”, 335 pounds) allows him to dominate defensive lines and open massive holes.
Lache Seastrunk, RB, Baylor
Projected Round: 2-3
A phenomenal athlete for his build (5’10”, 210 pounds), Seastrunk runs a 4.5 forty yard dash and has great open field speed for the NFL level. He is also strong, and uses his powerful legs to break through tacklers. While he has all the tools to be a productive NFL running back, Seastrunk has just as many holes in his game. At the moment he is too much of an east to west runningback and will need to work more on running vertical. If he fixes his game up, he could develop into an Ahmad Bradshaw type player, however given the deficiencies in his game and character issues I wouldn’t be surprised to see him fall into day three.
Storm Johnson, RB, UCF
Projected Round: 5-7
Storm Johnson is an intriguing prospect out the little known University of Central Florida, who had a breakout season and will appear in their first BCS Bowl. Johnson has decided to leave early and forgo his senior season, even though he could improve his draft stock by staying. Johnson possesses a strong frame and great speed (likely in the 4.45-4.6 range) and has great vision. He is built as a prototypical NFL power back that excels between the tackles and has the speed to break a big run when he gets to the next level. Johnson could be a real steal in the late rounds of the draft, and could be a nice compliment to David Wilson.
