ESPN’s Todd McShay released his third installment of his NFL Mock Draft today (Insider req’d). McShay had the Giants selecting USC offensive tackle, Tyron Smith with the 19th pick while McShay had the Jets selecting Baylor nose tackle, Phil Taylor with the 30th pick.

Linebacker and offensive linemen are clearly the two biggest needs for Big Blue, so Smith makes some sense. McShay had this to say about the Giants’ selection:

The Giants can use this pick to solidify QB Eli Manning‘s protection for the next several years. Current LT David Diehl can move inside to guard, Will Beatty can play either tackle position and RT Kareem McKenzie is entering his 11th season and will be a free agent after the 2012 season. Smith has great potential as a left tackle, but he started two seasons at right tackle at USC and is still a bit unpolished.

Mike profiled UCLA outside linebacker, Akeem Ayers earlier this week, who McShay had going #21 to Kansas City. Ayers is definitely another potential option for the Giants.

Given their copious amounts of free agents, the Jets have a lot of question marks concerning their roster. Over the last two seasons, nose tackle Kris Jenkins has failed to live up to expectations, playing only seven games. In addition, Shaun Ellis’ contract is up and many believe that the Jets will not bring him back. The Jets have allowed other 30-year-old players to walk in the past (Alan Fancea, Thomas Jones), so the selection of Phil Taylor makes sense. McShay added this about Taylor:

The Jets need a reliable presence in the middle of their 3-4 defense, and veteran NT Kris Jenkins has played just seven games combined in the past two seasons. Taylor has the size to anchor the middle of that three-man front and surprisingly good feet for a 350-pound prospect.

McShay had defensive end, Da’Quan Bowers going #1 to Carolina and defensive tackle, Nick Farley going #2 to Denver.
