2011 BGN Community Mock Draft Pick #52: The New York Giants

With the fifty-second pick in the 2011 BGN Mock Draft, Bob_Q selects...

Mason Foster - OLB, Washington

With their top need addressed in round one thanks to the signing of offensive lineman Mike Pouncey, the Giants are now free to turn their sights to improving their defense.

Although the addition of ex-Titan Keith Bulluck appeared to be at least a short-term solution to the Giants' slumping linebacker corps, the aging veteran only managed a scant 31 tackles over eight starts. Backup Clint Sintim is also recovering from a torn ACL after losing his starting job in training camp. The Giants will need a talented young linebacker at the SAM position to help out Michael Boley and Jonathan Goff.

More after the jump...

Although projected to go anywhere from the mid-second round to the late third round, Mason Foster fits the Giants' needs perfectly. A true 4-3 linebacker, Foster is a durable, relentless player with good instincts and the ability to make big tackles. He would bring a level of aggressiveness to New York's linebacking corps that hasn't been seen in years.

Next on the clock will be TheAngelsColts with the Indianapolis Colts.
