    Re: Freak athletes?

    [quote user="lawl"][quote user="Drez"][quote user="lawl"][quote user="Redeyejedi"][quote user="T.Rice57"]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?
    [/quote]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[/quote]

    Bey actually looked pretty good this year. And there we rumors the giants were highly interested in drafting him.[/quote]
    Saying the rumors were true, the difference is we were planning on drafting him at the bottom of the first, not the top.
    [/quote]

    Right. And where are we drafting now?[/quote]
    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.
