It's like they don't pay attention to team needs and go by draft value. At the 12 spot, I think the Giants can pick from best available OL. It can be OT, OG or C even though I am hoping for an OT.

The Giants need a lot - I'm, okay with BPA. But they need to draft 3 or 4 on the line

I didn't get a chance to see him play. He is really fast but he is really small. I am not really a fan of small backs. I know he ran a 4.26 and was timed by one scout at 4.18. He is more of a specialist for me.

One back that I like coming into the draft is Lache Seastrunk but unless we get an extra 2nd or 3rd rounder I don't think he is coming here. Depending on what we have available for us in the 12 spot this is how I want it to fall in the 1st 3 rounds.

1st scenario
1st Round - OT Mathews/Robinson/Lewan
2nd Round - OLB/CB/DE - Whoever is BAP. Would love to get Shazier or Van Noy here.
3rd Round - C Swanson/Richburg/Marcus Martin in that order.

2nd scenario
1st Round - OLB/TE/WR - BArr/Mack/Ebron/Watkins
2nd Round - OG Yankey/Jackson/Su'A-Filo/Richardson
3rd Round - C Swanson/Richburg/Marcus Martin in that order.

I am staying away from Kouandijo in the 1st 3 rounds now due to the medical stuff that has come out from the combines that he has arthritis. Would take a flyer on him maybe in the 4th round if he is still there.

Here is a link to the combine results

I don't like them as rushing specialists but the small dudes like Darren Sproles, Reggie Bush, and Danny Woodhead have been excellent when used properly. I don't know if he's that type of guy or not but the speed definitely interests me

I would LOVE to have Lewan but I saw in the news he is dealing with accusations of assault (can't remember if it was sexual or not). I don't know if the Giants take him because usually they stay away from guys with baggage. They'll do their due diligence though and hopefully there really isn't any baggage and he falls right to the Gmen

considering they need help at receiver and the line, Ebron is starting to look like a better and better option

as much help as the Giants need on the the o-line and with the front seven on D, I am warmng to the idea of drafting Darqueze Dennard/Justin Gilbert. I like the idea of having two top flight CBs that are relatively the same age.

Man, I hope not. If they draft CBs in the 1st 3 rounds that means Baas and Snee are coming back and Manning will running for his life again.

Not terribly excited about the if season so far - but - apparently the giants have called Revis. Our safeties are awesome. Revis as a one, Prince as a two, those safeties... that would be a great way to break in a young d-line

Feel sick now that Tuck is gone. Our D-Line is scarier than it was last year and i don't mean that in a good way.

Always... always remember: Less is less. More is more. More is better and twice as much is good too. Not enough is bad, and too much is never enough except when it's just about right. - The Tick

I don't know how anyone can miss Tuck he was always hurt and coasted for a year and a half. Showed up the last 6 games to make a FA push and got himself a deal with the Raiders. I'm actually happy for him as the Giants need to bring in the new and replace the old. Hungry players funny how Tuck got hungry only towards the end coasted in the beginning so he wouldn't get hurt and showed up to play late in the season for the contract.

Rogers-Cromartie is scheduled for a visit today. If that happens the CBs are solidified. They added high-quality depth this past weekend and got a return guy. Nothing exciting about this offseason but I feel as though the team improved without damaging their cap situation

DRC signed, Kiwi took a paycut on top of Tuck leaving... I'm beginning to think the GMen are drafting a DE in the first round
