Motes Posted May 5, 2006 Share Posted May 5, 2006 http://nfldraft.scout.com/2/527991.html?refid=3652 "After a terrific off-season when the team signed several quality free agents, the Giants hoped to add more talent in the defensive front-seven. New York moved around the draft board throughout the first day and in the end came away with one of the best draft's no one is talking about. New York Giants Ernie Acorsi and the Giants quite possibly had one of the most underrated draft’s last weekend. They combined solid trades with the best players available and came away with a lot of quality prospects. At the top of his game Mathias Kiwinuka is a dominant defensive end. Hence using the final pick of round one on a player who was injured most of his senior campaign could turn into one of the draft’s best bargains. Not far behind was selecting Sinorice Moss, the fastest receiver in this draft and a developing player. Gerris Wilkinson and Barry Coefield are both excellent long term prospects who will rotate into the line-up as rookies. Each has the ability to be used at several different defensive line and linebacker spots respectively. Both were terrific value where they were picked. Guy Whimper is a practice squad player who could develop into a starter with more experience. In trading down seven slots during the first frame the Giants acquired a third round choice which they used to select Wilkinson. In the end the team came away with a pair of terrific prospects at the 32nd and 96th selections. In moving up twelve spots in round two to secure Moss the team gave away a late third round choice, well worth the investment." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
