3 people I thought we'd draft if they were there when we picked in certain rounds were, Derrick Morgan (he was there and we passed), Sean Lee (he was there and we passed), and Eric Olsen (he was there in the 4th and we passed but then the Bronco's took him right before we picked in the 5th so who knows.)

I thought JPP would be a guy that TC and JR liked ....but in no way did I think they would take him at 15.....

I though if he slipped into the second he was a possibility....

Well if McClain would of fallen then i think it would of went alot differently

They had Spiller, McClain and JPP targeted at 15 and they had a set plan of who to draft depending on who fell

I honestly thought the stuff about TC liking JPP was a smoke screen to get a team in from of us to take him and have another guy fall.

And when JPP and Morgan were both available, I though for sure we would take Morgan.

04-25-2010, 09:00 PM
Of course.. I had predicted every player in one mock or antoher, becuase there all good players... Did my top 5player per rd thread right before the draft, and had Linval Joseph in RD 2, and Chad Jones in Rd 3, and also argued on JPP's behalf, when many dissed the possiblity.. I can't say, i had the draft down, to the pick, thats impossible.. But littrealy, i had mentioned the giants picking every one of these players outside of Matt dodge at one time or another.. I remember in a Sean Lee thread, i had wrote, that Sean Lee and Chad Jones remind me of Giant type players, and i woulden't be surprised if they end up in NY.. Also, i folllow who comes in for visits/workouts before the draft, and thats when i really started liking Adrian Tracy, who the 49ers liked as well...


These players are very good, and most people should of had em predicted at some point to the Giants or at least commented on em being good players, and mentioned em as possible guys they liked...

I had us taking Chad Jones in the third if he was there but that was it, wasn't close on anything else. Not that I didn't hear a lot about JPP I just didn't pick him as our #1.

I looked at some draft guides and they had over 500 players. It will be hard to look at them all. I even thought that they look at half of the guys coming out.

I would guess they at least give some attention to a majority of the prospects in case everyone they want is off the boards when they pick. Wouldnt want to get vaught trying to make a decision on a group of players you know nothing about.

And no matter what there is almost know way to take account of the single most important asset needed to transition to the pro level.

I think I mentioned that I thought we should take Olsen or Petrus in the 5th--I had it in my sig until Day 2. </P>

Otherwise we allcan make predictions/mocks or wants, but it seemed that this year especially, that the draft can be very unpredictable.</P>


</P>


I did not expect Alualu to go #10, nor did I expect Tebow to go in the 1st.I Didnt expect Clausen to drop into the 2nd, Chaney to be there in the 7th, Moeaki to get picked in the 3rd, or Bruce Campbell to be there in the 4th---just to name a few.</P>

BlueSanta
04-25-2010, 09:36 PM
I had JPP as my 5th most likely pick. The only guy left on the board above JPP when we selected was Iupati. My 1st round order was: 1)McClain 2) Spiller 3) Thomas 4) Iupati 5) JPP. I said repeatedly I thought we would take JPP over Morgan if it came to it.

I never in a million years thought Joseph would make it to our 2nd rounder. I had him pegged as a late 1st round early 2nd round. This is the pick I feel we got insane value. I said the day of the draft that while not many people know about this kid cause he went to a school thats not overly televised, every GM in the league knew exactly who he was an how good he is. I also heard rumors that the Fins had an eye on this kid as a NT and I believe they would have considered trading up ahead of the Chiefs and Steelers had he not been taken by us in the 2nd.

I suspected Chad was the type of player Reese likes. But, I will admit that I did not have him on any mocks since the signing of Rolle. Prior to the Rolle signing I had us possibly targeting Chad in the 2nd. He was in a group of safeties I had us looking at (Jones, Allen, Burnett)

Beyond that I dont really ever try to guess late round picks simply because its ALL about value usually and you have no idea who is going to be there. I was very happy with the Mitch Petrus pick though as I thought he was gonna be a 3rd rounder.

I was definitly way off on a couple things for sure though: I had us taking a LB in the 1st 2 rounds and I had us taking a TE somewhere in the draft, 1 who could block since we have no depth. I would have NEVER had us taking a punter. However, I freely admit I almost never even try to evaluate them.

Thanks. I think its safe to say the giants are one of the teams that puts more emphasis on finding players with strong character before raw talent. The pressure and scrutiny of playing in NY requires it.

That is all we can do. I am going to say that he did well in the draft. We did not need that much help. I wanted the Giants to get Haden but he was not a reach. Well I also wanted the Giants to get a O-linemen and they got one. The Giants add a DT like everyone said they should and some posters said he was a good pick. We pick our future punter wich was a need and we did not wait til RFA to get one. Since our players kept getting hurt, we had no choice but to get more depth.

I was pretty convinced that JPP was going to be the pick if McClain was off the board.

I also had Joseph.

I honestly loved all the picks though.

Once Big Blue Interactive posted a JPP picture on their homepage before the draft I did some research on the guy, watched some youtube clips, and thought that it could be a possibility. I thought Iupati was higher on our boards.

I really like this pick. It gives us the depth we need in our DE rotation. No more relying on tuck to get the rush every play. It gives the Giants leverage if and when we negotiate a contract with Kiwi. And it allows us flexibility for future years in case we decide to not sign Kiwi or trade Osi.

Mel Kiper who probably knows more about these college players than Reese...had a mock draft that wasnt the same as Reese's.

Time will time if Reese made the right decision on this guys as well. Remeber GM's based their opinion off a bunch of scouts...any interested fan could be a scout lol its not rocket science.

All of this have been done and McClain could have been drafted if the Raiders didn't get him. I can;t forget the talks about getting a DT. I even said that we should get a DT later on. Well even though we got one early, he was not a first round pick.

anyone on these boards could have a chance of making picks in the draft, its an art not a science as espn touched on time and again. and going by all the busts and failed picks, its easy to see that the pros don't always have the answers eaither, and they get paid to make those picks. we volunteer our thoughts on these boards not to be ragged on by some old donkey such as yourself, but to share our thoughts. yours should be kept to yourself.</P>

HAHA very well said. It is impossible , repeat: <font size="6">IMPOSSIBLE</font> to predict a draft correctly . You have no idea what the teams who pick before you are gonna do. case in point oakland. had they not taken rolando and he dropped we couldve very well (most likely) selected him and that could've changed all our picks from there on out. That's the fun of the draft you dont know what is gonna happen. NO ONE DOES. All we do on here is voice our opinions for players we like and we think fit our system. Not everyone will agree and thats when the fun starts. The debating of players is the most fun on here in the offseason. Dont like it? dont care, but dont try and call out others who love this time of year and participate in it.

I didn't get any right either. But I know one thing, and that is that Reese is an imgrate!

No way, I was thinking that we'd be going after Linval Joseph and Chad Jones all the way. JPP would have surprised me if McClain and Spiller were still on the board, but I understand the scenario in which we picked from.

No one could have guessed how things would shake out in this years draft, as soon as McClain was picked, then Spiller then Aluala? Those three in a row messed everyones board up, not just message board posters.

I haven't been able to post here in a long time cause I forgot my password and couldn't get it sent my email. Back on subject... I had JPP in my mock draft going to the Giants if McClain was taken. Other than that, I wasn't even close.

I made two draft predictions but they were not about who the Giants will get. My predictions was about who would be a good player out of the draft picks. Well I pick Haden and Chaney going to be good players and McClain will be a bust. There will be some time before the results will show.

I figured JPP. It was a similar situation to last year's draft where I did not feel that was going to be the BPA pick in the first round, but it was apparent that Reese was high on JPP as he was on Nicks.

Linval Joseph I thought was a possibility later in the second, so I did not have Giants picking him up. I did figure the Giants to select a DT before a MLB but I figured either Price or Cody.

After the Rolle signing, I saw the safety position from a first round scenario to a third or fourth so Chad Jones was the obvious choice. That dissipated after the Branch signing.

All in all, the first three did not surprise me in any way, but the only guy I had penciled in for my final mock of the Giants was Tracy in the 6th.

another pointless post by bleedinbluesince62, lol. it has yet to be determined wether our picks will ever see the pro field. half the folks on the giants staff, heck in their war room, probably didn't have these guys penciled in. oakland took mcclain and it changed our draft from there on out, imo. there were a lot of trades, people going early, people going late, even the pros had a tough time gauging this draft. get off the collective asses of the fans who want to share their opinions. keep it in the other thread we were arguing in, instead of making a new thread just to toot your own horn. </P>


anyone on these boards could have a chance of making picks in the draft, its an art not a science as espn touched on time and again. and going by all the busts and failed picks, its easy to see that the pros don't always have the answers eaither, and they get paid to make those picks. we volunteer our thoughts on these boards not to be ragged on by some old donkey such as yourself, but to share our thoughts. yours should be kept to yourself.</P>

I had JPP as my 5th most likely pick. The only guy left on the board above JPP when we selected was Iupati. My 1st round order was: 1)McClain 2) Spiller 3) Thomas 4) Iupati 5) JPP. I said repeatedly I thought we would take JPP over Morgan if it came to it.

I never in a million years thought Joseph would make it to our 2nd rounder. I had him pegged as a late 1st round early 2nd round. This is the pick I feel we got insane value. I said the day of the draft that while not many people know about this kid cause he went to a school thats not overly televised, every GM in the league knew exactly who he was an how good he is. I also heard rumors that the Fins had an eye on this kid as a NT and I believe they would have considered trading up ahead of the Chiefs and Steelers had he not been taken by us in the 2nd.

I suspected Chad was the type of player Reese likes. But, I will admit that I did not have him on any mocks since the signing of Rolle. Prior to the Rolle signing I had us possibly targeting Chad in the 2nd. He was in a group of safeties I had us looking at (Jones, Allen, Burnett)

Beyond that I dont really ever try to guess late round picks simply because its ALL about value usually and you have no idea who is going to be there. I was very happy with the Mitch Petrus pick though as I thought he was gonna be a 3rd rounder.

I was definitly way off on a couple things for sure though: I had us taking a LB in the 1st 2 rounds and I had us taking a TE somewhere in the draft, 1 who could block since we have no depth. I would have NEVER had us taking a punter. However, I freely admit I almost never even try to evaluate them.

<FONT color=#0000ff>It was suprising that Joseph made it to the second round. And kudos to you for having JPP on your radar! Good post!</FONT></P>
