Dosen't always mean much, but its something, and it is about the GIANTS, so i'm posting it.. As all know, ive liked Brian Winters for quite some time, and been having em in and out of my mocks since October... Everytime i've seen kent St, which is more then most, because i gamble, hes stood out and gotten high praise from Announcers.. Hes a versatile player, and because of his weigh ins at Sr Bowl, probably will fit best inside, with ability to step out to RT in a pinch... So far, giants have met with Trent Steelman and Brian Winters at Shrine and Sr Bowl, at least as far as i know...


2013 Senior Bowl: Wednesday Prospect Meetings Report (North Team)

By Charlie Campbell - @draftcampbell

Here is a recap of the player interviews that were conducted on the field after Wednesday's practice by the North team. Typically, these interviews with area scouts are to set up longer, formal interviews for a night during the week. While teams say they "talk" to every player, teams do not take the time to conduct formal interviews with every draft prospect, so this can be a clue as to which players are on their radar.

Chicago - Missouri Southern defensive tackle Brandon Williams

Denver - Fresno State safety Philip Thomas

New Orleans - Missouri Southern defensive tackle Brandon Williams






New York Giants - Kent State tackle Brian Winters

New York Jets - Purdue defensive tackle Kawann Short

Philadelphia - Oregon State wide receiver Markus Wheaton, Colorado tight end Nick Kasa, Illinois defensive end Michael Buchanan, Texas wide receiver Marquise Goodwin and Connecticut cornerback Dwayne Gratz

San Diego - UCLA defensive end Datone Jones and North Carolina defensive tackle Sylvester Williams

San Francisco - Fresno State safety Philip Thomas

St. Louis - North Carolina defensive tackle Sylvester Williams and Connecticut cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson





Washington - Fresno State safety Philip Thomas

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have conducted interviews with Cornell guard J.C. Tretter, Kent State tackle Brian Winters, San Jose State guard Dan Quessenberry and Texas wide receiver Marquise Goodwin.

Baltimore Ravens senior personnel assistant George Kokinis interviewed Syracuse tackle Justin Pugh and Connecticut cornerback Dwayne Gratz.

Its a cat and mouse game. you want to evaluate talent and talk to guys but you don't want to tip your hand with who you are potentially interested or what positions your potentially favored for. at least thats my take on why the giants have only talked to two players.

I've heard JR say they usually interview the guys they have questions on or need to look into, & they pretty much have a good idea about the other guys...

im praying Fisher from C.Michigan (OT) makes it to us at 19 (or we trade up a few spots if he gets near 19 or trade back if JR knows based on team need). I know that other guy is being touted as the "1 in a generation LT" and most likely will go 1 overall, but really, Fisher is right there imho. He has the perfect size, build/width, strength, footwork...he's gonna be a beast imo and starting day 1. If we take him, he could be an all pro RT for us for 10 yrs...I am super stoked on him. He just destroys DE's 1v1 in pass pro, and he is a nasty run blocker...

I'll be surprised if he gets past the top 10 at this point. The kid is taking advantage of a light T class at the top and looks way more prepared to start in the NFL on day 1 versus Nate Solder.

Edit: Don't be surprised if the Giants go the same path with the Oline they have done in recent years and that's find more OL gems in the later rounds. Brian Winters, Mark Jackson, J.C. Tretter, etc. are all selections I'd be happy with in day 3.

Add Earl Watford G James Madison and TJ Johnson C/G South Carolina to the list as well..

Its a cat and mouse game. you want to evaluate talent and talk to guys but you don't want to tip your hand with who you are potentially interested or what positions your potentially favored for. at least thats my take on why the giants have only talked to two players. Believe it or not, before last yr, the giants had met or worked out a ton of guys they ended up drafting.. Redeye and I have both explained this to people who were under the impression we dont usually draft guys we look at.. It really all depends on how the draft goes..

For instance, we could be very intrested in say Kawaan Short(just a example) and met with him at Sr Bowl and maybe even worked em out, but he goes to someone else and boom, it looks like we don't draft guys we work out.. We worked out or met with Travis Beckum , Clint Sintim, Hakeem Nicks, JPP, among many others..

But as far as guys like Winters go, u never know, because hes more of a 3rd-4th rd guy, and what if Chance Warmack ends up being are 1st rder? Now all of a sudden, Winters might be off our radar..


Its just getting to know a guy u have some interest in, and if the rd comes up and hes still available, and u haven't filled said positon yet, maybe u take em.. Even then, maybe a guy has dropped that u value more that u didn't think was gonna be there.. Its hard to line up all the cards in order for the guy u met with to be where u think his values at and still on the board and etc...

When is he projected to go in the draft? 3rd-4th rd.. i've mocked em to us in RD3 or 4 a few times since October.. I really like em, and think hes one of the better values for a Olineman in the mid rds, if were to wait on Oline that long..

I'd say you are pretty spot on. Kiper has him as the 3rd best guard and I'm not seeing that.

He holds his own against MAC players but that isn't saying much. I'm really interested to see how he fares against faster guys in the SeniorBowl, but he'll probably be at LG rather than LT.

I think hes going to Arizona at #7 or Chargers at #11..

I think hes going to Arizona at #7 or Chargers at #11.. No chance he gets by SD at 12.. I said that as soon as i learned Taylor Lewan and Jake Mathews were going back to school... Now, hes doing so well, a team might trade up and get em even earlier...

Fisher did really good against Okafor and Jones today. He's been so consistent and the fact he is dedicated to studying his opponents (for a senior bowl of all things) is a huge plus in my book.

This usually shows where the Giants are targeting the position. So if not this guy, you'll still probably see an OL pick somewhere in the 3rd-4th round.

Because people take these reports as meaning the giants have serious interest in drafting him. And this doesn't show that at all. If they reported everyone the giants talked to it would be nearly everyone at the senior bowl.

It's just pointless

Those people are probably new to the drafting world then. It's like Myles said earlier in the thread: the point is for Reese to gather more information on these prospects to get a better idea of them personally and to learn more about what kind of scenarios they experienced in practice/games.

Some people here had questions about the prospect and now they know more about him so I'd say the thread wasn't pointless.

It's just pointless The giants have drafted many players they've showed intrest in over the past servearl yrs.. They certainly don't waste there time meeting guys they have no interest in.. Thats just stupid.. Of course they have some sort of intrest if they met and took time outta there day to get to know em.. They met with em becuase they got issues with the age and effectiveness of the oline.. Brian Winters makes a ton of sense for the giants to be interviewing...

Again, other people obviously enjoy the thread, so why come be a dink? Just can't help yourself?

So who have the giants met with at the senior bowl before that they drafted?
99% of team interviews happen privately or at the combine.

So one out of the 100s of interviews they conduct is reported and now all of a sudden this guy is a guy the giants are really high on? Lets not be ridiculous.

U seriously come off as a little whiney girl sometimes... First post said that this is to be taken with a grain of salt and probably means little, but its giants, so were intrested in hereing about it..
