The FO follies

This noise is about nothing... the 2 guys the Giants allegedly coveted were taken before the Giants could pick.... so what's the problem? Should the Giants have moved up and given up draft picks to do so? No of course... should the Giants have traded down with the Jets as was rumored... sure... but the Jets were low-balling them... so no (although an additional 2nd rounder was nothing to sneeze at). Hindsight is 20/20... if it was up to me (easy for me to say after the fact) I would have traded with the Jets and got at least their 2nd rounder (if not get an additional pick be it 5th or 6th since they weren't willing to give up their 4th)... drafted the BPA at 20 like Lawson or even Apple if he's still there etc... drafted Sheppard exactly where we drafted him and used the 2nd pick from the Jets and say that 5th from the Jets plus another pick to move up to snatch Myles Jack...

 

Imagine a draft where the Giants get Lawson, Jack and Sheppard... everything else is a crapshoot.

I think everybody is upset because Apple won't see significant playing time like it says in the article. Maybe not for his first two years and everything that they talked about leading into the draft was finding an immediate impact player. If they were going to redshirt a guy I would of went Lawson to take JPP's place in 2017 and rotate in this year. They should of taken Tunsil and then traded him to the Jets for Lee. With that extra 2nd they could of gotten their RT or DE or you take the S/CB at that spot. Alexander was still available at the Jets second round pick

I think the idea that Eli Apple will have limited playing time in 2016 with DRC and Jenkins on the roster is very premature. Every player the Giants drafted has the potential to be an impact player in 2016.

I agree especially when it comes to Apple... it's a passing league and a 3rd cb is essential and sees robust playing time.... I would have taken the trade with the Jets though... even if they were low-balling it... an extra 2nd was a lot to pass on but oh well...

He doesn't fit the slot though

 

 

So when we play three corners, Jenkins is the slot guy. Apple will play.

 

That will be Spagnuolo's problem to solve and he is excellent at solving these problems. Back in 2007 he had too many pass rushing defensive ends.

When was the last time we had our top 2 corners stay healthy all season?

 

 

 

That only happens when they both suck.

 

Good point....and LOL! Sadly true!

We should feel happy for these young men...their odds of not ending up on IR by Thanksgiving just went up exponentially.

We hired the guy from Notre Dame and they've had a bad injury history as well
