Who are some players the Giants are projected to go after with our 1st round pick that folks would consider "freak athletes?" With our BPA mentality, is there a freak we may go after that could surprise us b/c it's not a need.

The only person I can think of from an intangible standpoint is the WR from Georgia Tech. He's tall, can leap and is very fast.

Any thoughts?

The thing about Hill is he times so much faster then he plays. He isnt smooth as a route runner so unless he is running in a straight line his speed is useless. He is a lot like Heyward Bey

To be fair to bey, he has gotten better. Still not worth a first round pick, but still lol

Heywad Bey made great strides the second half of last year. Look for him to have a big year next year. I think some WRs have to learn how to use their speed to their advantage. Hill may be this same type of player. I prefer Kendall Right to Hill. Right is the most NFL ready receiver in the draft and we can win now. </P>

Bey actually looked pretty good this year. And there we rumors the giants were highly interested in drafting him.

Gotcha. Yea, I didn't know much about Hill, just read about his bio/stats.

What about other positions? Is there a pass rusher that would be too hard to pass up? A DB, or LB? I don't believe there's a RB that stands out at 32, but maybe an OT?

+1

49 career receptions in college ... I don't see the Giants blowing a first rounder on that.

And I doubt he's there at the end of the second because someone will bite on him due to his Combine performance.

There isnt anyone in that freak athletic mold at 32 in the realm of JPP.

But Nicks wasent an "athletic freak" either.

Amini Silatolu and Kelechi Osemele (both OG/OTs) are freakish in size and athletic ability at that size. I could see the Giants taking either of those guys.

Besides Dontari Poe, no one else in this draft strikes me as a physical freak (plenty of great athletes though).

Keep in mind that we consider JPP a physical freak but his measurables weren't off the charts at the Combine (beaten by a lot of other guys in all phases except phone-recorded back flips).

To be fair he played in a Option offense and n ever had a chance to show his recieving skills - Still not worth a 1st round pick

Exactly why he's not worth a first round pick in my mind.

Don't get me wrong ... the kid could blow it up in the NFL. But two weeks before the Combine he was a 4th round prospect and that feels closer to correct imo.

Saying the rumors were true, the difference is we were planning on drafting him at the bottom of the first, not the top.

True. But, my post was more a knock against the Raiders having drafted Bey high when despite his straight line speed, wasn't a top of the 1st talent.

Hill, outside of his speed, I haven't heard much about. But, honestly, I've found it hard to get into this year's draft class for some reason. It just hasn't piqued my interest as it has in years past.

It'll be interesting to see how things go with them now that Davis has passed.
