With the 19th pick in the 2011 Orangemane Mock Draft the Giants select:

Nate Solder, OT Colorado

Last name is pronounced "sold-er" --- A three-year starter and team captain for the Buffaloes --- Named 1st Team All-Big 12 in 2009 and 2010 --- A consensus 1st Team All-American as a senior --- Weighed 245 pounds when he arrived on campus in Boulder --- Began college career as a tight end, red-shirted in 2006 then played in 13 games with four starts at the position in 2007 --- Moved to offensive tackle in 2008 and held down left side for the next three seasons --- Only missed two snaps from 2008-2010 and gave up just five sacks --- Brother, John, played outside linebacker at Stanford --- Active in the community and is a fairly accomplished artist (paintings and sculptures) --- Also excelled in the classroom and graduated with a degree in biology --- Rare physical specimen at the position who reportedly has less than 10% body fat --- A finesse blocker who looks like an early first round pick on paper --- Has all the potential in the world and the tools to develop into a stud left tackle at the next level but is not yet a finished product.

Pick was made at 5:44 CST
