  1. I feel like THIS is the draft Giants fans have been waiting for. .
  2. Kiper said this morning he was the best available player for round 2, so I'm good with the pick, even though I trust you guys' opinions more than the experts. The homer in me wanted Delpit from LSU, reminds me of the honey badger in certain ways, always involved in the play. But I like this pick
  3. Same, I really wanted the Giants to draft him. One of the guys I'm really rooting for to have a great career, he's gotten a really raw deal so far in his NFL career. The disaster he was placed into his rookie year, followed by a less than fair way to trade him, and the clusterfuck in Miami where they were trying to lose by trading away anyone talented. only to be replaced b y another rookie. I hope he wins the job in camp this year and has a heck of a season so he can land somewhere full time.
  4. That Justin Hebert rage segment was just, weird.
  5. Yeah, Thomas was mocked to us in a lot of drafts in January/February before Wirfs and Wills started moving up - based on what I was seeing. I don't know who is going to be better, I just wanted them to take the tackle they thought was best.
  6. Yeah we need to trade down if we can pick up another 3rd rd pick at least. Maybe someone will get desperate and want to move way up to grab a QB. But with the Lions openly courting trades, I don't know how much we would get in return. If we can't trade back and pick up a 3rd, just take whoever they think is the best tackle and move on.
  7. I picked only for the Giants, the rest of the picks were auto generated by the site.
  8. Of course here is the fucked up part of the predicted part of my draft 23. New England Patriots Tua Tagovailoa QB, Alabama
  9. This is the 2nd full 7 rounder I did, I liked this first one better but didn't save it. 4. Jedrick Wills OT, Alabama 36. Kenneth Murray LB, Oklahoma 99. Thaddeus Moss TE, LSU 110. K'Von Wallace S, Clemson 150. Alex Highsmith EDGE, Charlotte 183. Stephen Guidry WR, Mississippi State 218. Trevis Gipson EDGE, Tulsa 238. Jaron Bryant CB, Fresno State 247. Joe Reed WR, Virginia 255. Cameron Clark OT, Charlotte
  10. I don't see how we could pass on Young. There are so many holes on this team that I think if arguably the best player in the draft falls to our lap, we have to take him I'd love to see us take a couple olinemen in the first few rounds, but if this scenario happens, unless some team out there suddenly wants to trade up for Young that can reach 4 but not 2, I think we thank our lucky stars for the windfall and take him.
  11. I mean if the haul if right, sure, and the injury concerns are valid, but he's a top tier talent at the position and we're not really falling over ourselves with pass catchers for DJ. Not sure if just moving him to more of a WE would help reduce the injuries, I don't know what his breakdown is of percentage played on the line and split out, but maybe he doesn;t need to be on the line at all?
  12. I've seen 1 or two of the tackles, Jeudy, Simmons, and even the CB from Ohio State who most people think Detroit is taking.
  13. Yep, that season I think it is clear the Giants were the team to beat. Hard to say if it was losing Plax the player that derailed them or the entire clusterfuck around the shooting or what percentage of both, but I think up until the incident I was never before and never since more confident in a Giants team week to week and seasonal destination.
  14. That is an excellent point - was Simmons even a top 10 guy before the championship game? I didn't look at any mocks until recently.
  15. I didn't, and still don't, know much about him. I thought his numbers were great and he looked like he had talent based on highlights, but I had doubts about him based on only one year as a starter. Honestly, I think being a QB in this league has more to do with what team you end up on, what system you end up in, the coach, the owners...than it does raw talent. Is there really a huge talent difference between an Aaron Rodgers and a first round bust? I'm in the corner that sitting a year is prefered to learn the mental game at the NFL level, but a good coach will recognize the needs of the individual and cater his development based on that. I guess what I mean is I think Haskins would have a much better chance of becoming a star under a coach like Andy Ried, Sean Payton, Carrol, than Jay Gruden with Snyder as the owner - guess we will see if Rivera can coach him up.
  16. My intiial reaction as well, but honestly if we could pick up an extra 3rd this year and a third next year, and still get the guy at 6 that we wanted at 4, that's a win. What would suck if Miami just loves Tua and trades down if the Chargers take him and Simmons is gone at 5. Still a few options there like Jeudy, the Oklahoma WR, a couple tackles. There are a few teams that could trade up to 4 to get in front of Miami and SD that are QB hungry though and we could still get one of our top 3 guys.
  17. Love me some Eli, I can remember watching LSU vs Ole Miss thinking how awesome it would be if the Giants drafted him, before I even knew the Giants would be in the QB market.
  18. This is a pretty amazing coaching staff being assembled. Is this a factor of Judge being this respected around the league or is something else going on? 13 year NFL HC with moderate success as the OC. Immediate former HC as, what, TE coach? Two-time college HC with some real success as a positional coach? Just all around a very experienced staff and successful staff at various ranks of football. I am super fucking stoked about this team guys.
  19. I could see Carolina or Denver, hell maybe even Tampa trading up to 4 to draft a QB. Dolphins and Chargers are both probably looking to draft QBs.
  20. Titans have a lot to be proud about. Don't know much about their roster but they made it a long way with mediocre talent at the QB position.
  21. Saw a tweet on espn that said one of the cons of hiring Garret was that he is very likely or could very well leave for a HC job next year, meaning the third OC and third system for Jones in 3 years. That's true of any potential OC hire, but maybe especially true for JG. On the other hand, I could see JG sticking around a few years while he re-establishes himself as an offensive guru and waits for the perfect HC opportunity. I guess it just depends on what jobs become available next year.
  22. Just a quick reference, most of the mocks I saw (3 of 8) have of taking Jeudy. Totally fine with that. Would love to address the ofensive line, it appears there is a lot of mid-1st round depth but none at really the top of the round.
