  • Freak athletes?

    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?

      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.

        Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

          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?

                  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.
                  I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

                    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.
