      Prince was injured and didn't have an offseason, give that time.

      Also, you should read the article. A lot of the so called "dropping" is just the media having had it wrong to begin with. He's not dropping so much as the media is finding out that they overrated a bit in the first place.

      That's why I never listen to Kiper

        I question anyone who claims a player is rising or dropping.

          Thats becasuse the "experts" usually overate/underrate guys. It happens every year, mock drafts are always way off outside of the first 2 or 3 picks.

          Giants are probably looking at guys like Hightower and Kirkpatrick because they think they have a realistic shot at drafting them.

            he'd be excellent value at 32 imho. i always had janorice jenkins, stephen gilmore ahead of him. i actually believe gilmore may be better than clairborne...jenkins tho has had some serious off field issues and if he didnt, id rank him as a player above everyone at DB, when he was with UF, he shut down the best wr's in college...

            jenkins could even drop to us bc of those off field issues, but i dunno if JR would draft him in the 1rst and rightfully so, NYC isnt a place where we could go "he'll be on his best behavior."

            about andre branch, I too have done some mocks, in one of them and its prob wishful thinking bc every mock i've seen has him gone early 20's, but chandler jones the de from syracuse would be prob the best defensive player out of this draft, he had an injury this last season but as a junior he was dominant...

            i also had one mock where k.wright dropped to us...cant wait til late tmrw night...does anyone know if they'll complete the 1rst round in one night no matter what or will they call it after a certain time?

              The only problem I have with Alabama players is that I get a whole "Smoke and Mirrors" feel. Nick Saban is probably one of the biggest charlatans, though he does field some good college teams. I just don't trust the guy and that trickles down to hsi players too.

                      You may agree with me that Prince has a chance to be a great Giant for a lot of years. Some of these guys who think draft picks are evaluated after one season drive me nuts.

                      Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

                        I guess JPP, Kenny Phillips, Hakeem Nicks, etc "stock dropping' turned out to be horrible. What I am saying is that I trust Reese & Co. Whatever they do tonight, I know that they did their homework and due diligence. Just because the "MEDIA" claims a stock is rising or falling for a player, means NOTHING. To the poster who said "we took prince last year and it didnt turn out well", thats an idiotic statement.

                          Pre-Draft crap ... happens every year. I highly doubt Dre Kirkpatrick drops to #32 considering how in demand cover corners are and if he does, I doubt the Giants take him (we have three starting corners locked up for the next two years).

                          FYI, no one said Prince was dropping last year before the draft. Buzz (or lack it of it) means nothing and if any GMs are changing their draft boards this week, they should be fired immediately.

                            I think Kirkpatrick is going to be a great CB, but the Giants arent getting him. I still say he is the 3rd off the board behind Claiborne and Gilmore.

                              Id absolutely LOVE, LOVE Kirkpatrick to be there at 32. One of my favorite players in the draft.
