Some comments by Marc Ross on Reuben Randle:

"He's an NFL ready wide receiver. He will be fine here because LSU had a terrible QB."

"He will be as good as Nicks and Cruz."

"We almost took him last night in Round 1. We're shocked we could get him an entire round later."

Yes, he said LSU's QB was bad. So they're confident Eli will make him better. And I agree.

And I sure hope he is right about him becoming the next Nicks or Cruz.

Marc Ross just added that the Giants CONSIDERED taking Randle with the 32nd pick in the 1st round last night. They were shocked they could still get him a whole round later!

I'm happy about the pick, very happy, but can someone explain what it is that makes him so special besides his size? His vertical jump is really bad.

I'm only asking because I don't watch college. I'm thrilled to have him based on projections. What exactly makes him a borderline first round talent?

he's like a clone of Nicks, put it that way. Great hands, can be explosive downfield, amazing body control, stems his routes, gets seperation...he literally has 1rst round talent...he's going to be AWESOME and on day 1 too

I guess vertical jumps don't matter when Eli is throwing perfect passes anyway.

I read he's a great run blocker too. That can be a huge asset.

yup. Kossell also said he is similar to Nicks.
I cannot tell u how stoked I am. Especially to hear Ross say they were gonna take him last night or were heavily thinking it...

i felt we needed to get a WR, took a ton of flak for it, and now am vindicated for it...

FREAKING LOVE THIS PICK! I been calling for him for a while now...

this draft is shaping up to be JR's finest...I have no idea why teams took 4th round talent WR in the 2nd...

he's prob the 3 or 4th best WR in this class, aint NO ONE gonna be able to defend Nicks, Cruz, Randle, Bennett, and Wilson out of the backfield with Eli throwing it...WE ARE STACKED. OFFENSE IS UNSTOPPABLE

Dont really see Nicks. I guess with the way they stride, their agility and move, but it ends there.

Nicks is more explosive off the ball. Randle is a long strider

Randle runs his routes very upright & rounds them off, sure he stems them well but Nicks is more of a guy who'll drop his weight and is much more sharper

Randle loves to adjust to the ball over his shoulder, Nicks is a guy who will box out a corner and high point the ball

Nicks has a burst to his game, off the line and out of his breaks. Randle is more of a quick guy

Both have good body control and can make contested catches, but Nicks has absolutely SUPERIOR range/radius going up for the ball (which is amazing considering he's like 6'1). Randle can make contested catches but not someone who's going to do it leaping very high in the air


I can keep going on, but this kid isnt Nicks

Randle moves and strides like Nicks, thats it. Nicks made a ton of his big plays in college by just being animal fighting for the ball, randle just runs at corners by freezing them with double moves. I think hes overrated and thats why he fell, not because teams were so dumb to pass on such an amazing player

I think he was comparing him to nicks in terms of how they play better on the field not in workouts

put the highlights of nicks coming out of college. You saw an animal that simply just dominated corners playing the ball in the air

Randle... freezes corners on double moves.. then runs by them. How dyanmic...

I don't see how that translates into the NFL at all. He'll be a good receiver but I don't see much big play potential with him

Would have to disagree.

For example look at this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=s0A9GOjKKC0#!

He builds speed as he goes down the field, and froze the corner with a shoulder fake. Looks like a great play but is he going to see that bad technique on sundays?

While its flashy in college, I dont think hes gonna have as much success with that in the nfl. I think the big plays guys like kendall wright or alshon jeffery is more translatable.

Dont get me wrong, the kid has impressive savvy to his game. But I think theres a reason why he fell. A guy who gets the most out of his athletic ability and wins on his routes with deceptive speed + savvy/deception.. Not with elite, dynamic qualities like justin blackmon or michael floyd

guess someone forgot to tell randle that freezing the db and burning them is a bad thing. SMH. sometimes i just dont get people...

Well im glad thats good enough for you.

I want to see guys make big plays by running by cornerse with a second gear, or showcasing the ability to make highly contested catches with corners draped over them. I like that TD against oregon randle made but i want to see more of that, and he doesnt have the greatest range in the air

Thats just my preference. If making most of your big plays through savvy and deception is good enough to convince you he's going to be doing the same on the outside in the nfl fine.. thats good enough for you. dont see why you took the time to tell me im wrong if you're not even really interested in my opinion anyway

i wouldnt be interested except ur telling people we're wrong with the nicks comparison. Cosell and Ross say your wrong. Simple as that.
And i have never heard "freezing a db and running by him (vs SEC teams top corners) for a td" is a bad thing...

cool. we got ur opinion. my opinion is he is very similar to Nicks, not as polished, but similar in terms of body control, steming routes, getting seperation, being an elite deep threat and can go over the middle.

no offense intended

Randle's video highlights do not show any spectacular catches that I have seen. Maybe I don't have all his film. He does look solid and even good.He probably is more ready to contribute next yr. than a lot of other receivers in the draft which impressed the Giants. He also played against some tough players and teams etc..

I never said it was a "bad" thing, I just don't see him having much success at it in the nfl like he did in college. Veteran corners are going to have better technique not to freeze on all those head/shoulder fakes and double moves

This is interesting seeing the YouTube scouting staff making its snap judgments on a guy based on a few clips.

Having seen about 80% of Rueben's games, I have no way to evaluate how well he stacks up against the rest of the WR's out there because I haven't seen many of them, hardly watch any other non-LSU college games, and don't study films. It is true that he has been in a running offense on a team that depends on a strong defense.

And last year's stats, just under 1000 yards were suppressed by the type of offense, poor QB play from Jordan Jefferson and Jarrett Lee (who took over when Jefferson was suspended for the first two games), and was on a team that had easily the most difficult schedule in all NCAA football.

But my observations of him was that he is clutch, dependable and stacked up well against anyone and everyone that LSU faced. He made two mediocre quarterbacks look better.

The reason so many get so much wrong is that how a player continues to develop is the key. A freshman is not the same as a junior or a junior is not the same as a senior. And the same guy coming to a talented and unified team could turn out completely differently than a guy drafted by the Raiders.

A guy who does extra work with Eli can be made into a polished receiver too, through repetitive concerted training. Remember how Tom and Jerry let go of the veteran receivers and trusted the rookies a couple years ago?

Let's talk again in three years. Until then, the snap judgments on draft day are as good as those that comment on the season and conclude what's going to happen after a loss to the Redskins, i.e. in 2007 and again in 2011. You know who you are.

Where did he say Reuben would be as good as Nicks/Cruz? I just watched his presser and not once did he say that. The closest he came to saying something like that was talking about how Nicks/Cruz wouldn't be combine stars either but when you put them on the field they shine, saying he see's Reuben the same way.

That's a far cry from "Reuben will be as good as Nicks and Cruz"...

Yes, he said LSU's QB was bad. So they're confident Eli will make him better. And I agree.QB was terrible at LSU



Some dude named Jordan Jefferson (bad stats, bad mechanics, bad decision making etc..)
Yes they made the choice to go with him full time after beating Bama in regular season. Jefferson was more of a running QB. It was a bad choice on their part as it eventually led to them getting destroyed the 2nd time around in CG vs Bama. Prior to the switch they ran a two Quarterback system with Jarrett Lee. Good thrower

lol....


I'm not exactly sure you read "hakeem nicks and reuben randle aren't really similar in terms of big play style" as "i scout better than reese" i hate it when ppl say that, its a lazy counterpoint

But anyway. I guess I'll try to be more open minded and come around on the comparison. You can make the case for them being alike, especially based on some of the criticism nicks was getting predraft

I just think their differences are significant enough to say they arent similar: more importantly -- their big play style

With randle i see a guy who gets more downfield separation than nicks does and runs by corners with fakes and deception. As I showed in the highlights, Nicks wasnt like that NC -- he just simply fought or high pointed the ball all the time.

Im being a little bit of a hyprocrite here as well. I was a huge coby fleener fan and raved about how he beat defenders with his savvy, deception, and fakes & argued hes going to have great success doing so in the nfl. so by no means should i not give randle this same credit

My understanding is that the guy is an excellent route runner and can get separation on intermediate routes. He will compliment Victor and Akim perfectly. Can you imagine if we had an pass catching tight end!

I'm expecting good things from Randle - and his production this year was hindered by LSU's issues at QB. I don't want to take a personal swipe at the LSU QB(s) - but there were complex, negative issues there. I'm a transplant into the N.O. area and am put off by the arrogance of the LSU fans, but for the most part, respect their players. I believe Randle will excel - and hope his old teammate, Chad Jones, gets to defend him in practice.

Is he smarter than MH, thats all I want. Don't ever want to see Eli throwing into dead space with 3 defenders right around the ball again. I do hope to see MH continue his confusion (and running out of bounds), but I'm sure his new offense will be simplified.

Anyway, we are bringing this guy in as a 3rd, right?? He won't need to jump when he is wide open. I can't wait for Philly to stack the box like they always do, while trying to cover Nicks, Cruz, (whoever we put in as 3rd) and also trying figure out if Wilson is going to take a check down and go to the house. I'm way more exicted to possibly get some kind of running game going. Last year no one had to respect it at all really.

Marc Ross is The ****ing Man. To me, he's as big a reason as Coughlin &amp; Reese for why the Giants are where they are right now.</P>


Thank God the Bears didn't hire him as their GM this offseason.</P>


This could be his last draft for us, and if so, this was a fitting swan song.</P>

I think this guys will make a big impact as a 3 wr if given the chance. I think the Giants are going to come away with many good player by the time the draft is over. I am just curious to see what they will do with the talent that are left over.

Agreed.....Giants are totally set at #1 and #2.....no risk working Randle in as the #3.</P>

Dont really see Nicks. I guess with the way they stride, their agility and move, but it ends there.

Nicks is more explosive off the ball. Randle is a long strider

Randle runs his routes very upright &amp; rounds them off, sure he stems them well but Nicks is more of a guy who'll drop his weight and is much more sharper

Randle loves to adjust to the ball over his shoulder, Nicks is a guy who will box out a corner and high point the ball

Nicks has a burst to his game, off the line and out of his breaks. Randle is more of a quick guy

Both have good body control and can make contested catches, but Nicks has absolutely SUPERIOR range/radius going up for the ball (which is amazing considering he's like 6'1). Randle can make contested catches but not someone who's going to do it leaping very high in the air


I can keep going on, but this kid isnt Nicks

Randle moves and strides like Nicks, thats it. Nicks made a ton of his big plays in college by just being animal fighting for the ball, randle just runs at corners by freezing them with double moves. I think hes overrated and thats why he fell, not because teams were so dumb to pass on such an amazing player

Great stuff, enjoyed reading that and was really insightful thanks.

I'm excited about the pick, love a flashy offensive weapon.

My understanding is that the guy is an excellent route runner and can get separation on intermediate routes.* He will compliment Victor and Akim perfectly.* Can you imagine if we had an pass catching tight end!
Who is akim?
