I'm completely baffled on what the Giants are doing in Round 1.

I thought trade up or take Bama LB Donte Hightower..but with the pick up of Rivers makes that unlikely.

Ballard has micro fracture surgery so that tells me he is out for all of next season. So could Fleener be the pick?

So my best guess is RB Doug Martain or OL Sualuai or however you say it in round 1.

What do you think?

At this point I'd like Fleener just because he can be that TE threat they have been missing. However, other than QB, you can make the argument that they could use help at every position.

Really dont think Hightower fits at all. I think in a 4-3 he is a strongside backer. Hes a very linear player. Cant ask him to do a ton of dropping and turning, and he just isnt the type to run with a TE or back in coverage. I think where he fits best is 34 ILB, perhaps in Pitt or Bal.

I think theres a list of possibilites. A couple different OL, Martin, Still, Fleener, even WR is possible.

Hightower will most likely be gone, and the wisdom of spending a #1 on a guy that doesn't appear to have good pass coverage skills is really suspect.

Fleener is probably also long gone; but trading up for him might make sense.

It's probably going to be BPA, and don't be real surprised if that player happens to be a DT. Anything could happen as this draft unfolds. I wouldn't be surprised with a trade up; but I wouldn't be shocked by a trade down either. It depends on who's available and how bad they want them.

I think the following positions will get a serious look, defensive end and offensive lineman. If anything Reese will take the best player available. I know everyone thinks we need another tight end and a running back but I think Reese will wait til the later rounds.

BPA - doesn't matter the position. This is what makes mock drafts for the Giants so difficult.

I kind of have a feeling that Fleener still on the board is going to be a Giant, just a hunch but thats just my opinion.

I would not be shocked if they trade back into the 2nd round, fairly early and pick up a RB (Polk being my choice) plus a couple more picks. If we don't pick up a RB then we either go DT or OT with an outside chance on a LB...not really hoping for a TE in the first round despite the worse news with Ballard. I get the impression Reese is honing this draft to set up a BPA pick but RB is glaring right now. So if we actually make a need pick, it's gotta be a RB!

I think it all means that we can safely and comfortably take the BPA with the depth that we've added and I do think that it looks more likely that we'll be taking RB Martin as the # 1 because it seems that RB is the only position that we haven't covered in terms of depth this off-season. Not that we'll definitely take a RB, but it's more likely now.

Very true. No matter what the Giants needs are Reese will go as he always has, best player available.

I would definitely like to see how he has players rated...position priority or just a long column of players ranked by value? Maybe he has a point value system or something we have never seen before.

I do not think though he would go RB in the first unless someone like Trent Richardson dropped all the way to us(next to impossible). Value running backs can be found all the way to just about the end of the draft.

Reese doesn't trade up in the first round.

Reese always picks best player available in the early rounds.

Pointless to mock the New York Giants draft.

Hakeem Nicks was the BPA 2009 draft? He was expected to go second round, he was like the 6th wr to go,

Amen! Speculating about who will be left on the boards and who the BPA will be is crazy at 32. That said the discussion is interesting, agree with most that Hightower would be a waisted pick, Fleener is intriguing but doesn't fit the Giant's mold, Adams is a nice candidate. </P>

DE or RB, will be Giants 1st rd pick, IMHO, We have addressed TE, OL, DB, LB with recent FA pick ups, Remember Reese said "You Can't have enough speed rusher, DE's", OSI will be gone next year, Tolly gone, Tuck played hurt?, again!..... Let's groom the next one &amp; get a year under his belt as we did with JPP. That said RB NEEDS Addressed!, Jacobs gone, Bradshaw breaking down, 1-2 good years yet, &amp; Ware not the answer. This just a guess on my part, as everybody else @ this point, as Giants always seem to surprise....

True. This is why I also don't see us going TE early either. I mean, TEs are all over the place, and with our elite QB, he makes undrafted average TEs look good. I'd like guys like Isaiah Pead and L Greene in the later rounds. </P>

It is very difficult to predict the number 32 pick in the draft because there will be at least a couple of players who unexpectedly drop to that spot . . . . .

I disagree with the RB and DE. I believe it will be O-line or TE unless one of those WR fall.
Stephen Hill or Jeffries, then Reese will pull that trigger.

+1

JR drafts BPA if Fleener is still there at 32 i cant see there being another player better than him. I just really dont see him making it that far with the season he had, the great pro day, and the evelution on the TE in todays NFL. He could go earlier than people think

I don't get the TE thing. The Giants just signed a TE and if he's any good....they will probably extend him.</P>


Also, Fleener is a 'pass catching' TE....didn't we have a guy like that on our roster called Beckum?</P>


I don't get wasting a 1st round pick on a TE. We've done quite well with TE's from Rounds 5-undrafted</P>
