Supplemental Draft

Recommended Posts

Been reading that the Giants might be interested in another kid in the Supplemental draft coming up on the 10th.

Safety Jalen Thompson.

 

From what I read would of been regraded as one of the best safety prospects in 2020 but failed his year of eligibility in college.

 

Unlike Beal, Thompson has started every single game in his college career and was a ball-hawk type of safety, something the Giants sorely lack.

 

He also has experience playing as a nickle/slot corner and inside the box.

 

Honestly if he can be grabbed for a third I would sit him behind Bethea for a year.

  • Very quick mental processor.
  • Good short-area quickness.
  • Flashes solid tackling skills.

  • Durable player and a reliable starter.
Cons
  • Foot quickness is a question.
  • Doesn’t appear to have great speed.
  • Might struggle with man coverage against NFL receivers.

All reports say Beal has looked awesome so far. Hope it translates to the field.

Yep lots of reports about the corner group looking really good so far. Gratned they are mostly all rookies and havent played a snap of NFL football yet but if one or two of the guys develope into starters then you cant complain.

Yeah you gotta be excited about this group of kids coming in for the secondary. I hate watching the growing pains of corners and safeties though. Glad we have a somewhat good mix of rooks and vets.

He certainly sounds like the kind of player the Giants would reach for in the third round which I think it will cost to land him.

Some rumours are that the Giants wanted to get this kid, but since the Cardinals picked before the Giants, they would have to out bid them, so offer something higher than a fifth.

If the Giants wanted him, he'd be a Giant. Gettleman has to be feeling pretty good about the defensive backfield as is right now.
