ROTB Community Mock Draft: With the 29th Overall Pick, the New York Giants Select...

Percy Harvin (RB/WR), Florida

5'11", 192

The Giants enter the draft after a busy, busy month in which they added four possible starters on the defensive side of the ball and lost, arguably, their best player on Percy_harvin_mediumoffense. With a new and improved defense that includes Chris Canty, Rocky Bernard, Michael Boley and CC Brown, the focus early in the draft switches to offense where the Giants need a play maker. With the recent loss of Plaxico Burress the Giants are left with alot of 'cute' receivers, Sinorice Moss, Steve Smith and Domenik Hixon,  but no true #1 wide out. Whether or not Percy Harvin can be a true, front line starter in this league is a legit question but his potential to too much to pass up at 28th overall.

Positives: Athlete, athlete, athlete. Harvin's simply an amazing athlete with excellent top end speed, a fantastic burst and amazing quickness. He's nearly impossible to bring down in the open field and has good hands to secure passes all over the field. He's got good ball skills and body control when going up for balls and isn't afraid to work the middle of the field. He's very competitive brings a ton of versatility to any offense.

Negatives: Athlete, athlete, athlete. Harvin is very raw in every technical aspect of the game, especially route running. He doesn't have a true position and isn't very tough or physical. He's never played in a pro style offense and some question his character. Another major question mark will be his ability to stay healthy as he was rarely 100% at Florida and missed a ton of time with injuries.
