  • A lot of mocks I'm seeing on the web now have us taking DJ Fluker at 19

    Anyone know anything about this guy? I know he's OT from Bama so he should be good and fits a heavy need on our offense, but I haven't actually read much info on him. Another pro-ready OT would be definitely nice in round 1...

    PS: said mocks have Warmack going between 8-10, Joeckel at 1-5, Ogletree, Te'o, and Ansah past us in the 20s.

    I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

    Flunker to me is a late first round pick , but that solely depends on how many tackles go in the first 15 picks.

      We can do much better than a pure RT at #19 overall. I don't see an OL selection happening in the 1st unless we lose Beatty.

        We need a linebacker in the 1st round, IMO.

          He's an exclusive RT who needs to work on his pass protection. Plus the Giants don't usually go for that stacked figure. They'd probably prefer someone who can move at the next level opposed to a drive blocker.

            Here is some video I cut of him

            Fluker vs Michigan



            It says Warmack but just watch the RT



            Wow just realized how little I have up on Bamas OLine I will upload more. I thought I put up full line Videos of A&M ,Georgia,LSU

              He might not even be a RT , He might be a Guard. I dont see him as a 1st round pick. The only Alabama lineman that I think is a 1st rounder is Warmack.
              I really wonder what the Giants FO is thinking about Marvin Austin. If they think he has no future they might go DT. This Dline needs some help bad. Im worried that they may wait another year and by then the bottom might totally fall out. If they dont add youth and Tuck has nothing left, Osi leaves in FA, Austin is a bust, Ojomo and Tracy arent anything but depth U will have serious issuess with Joseph and JPP becoming FA's. U could be left in total rebuild mold

                  I saw what Eli Manning with some actual time to throw can do last night. I'm now 100% convinced that we NEEEEEEEEEED O-line first. Not saying this Fluker guy is the answer by any means, but we absolutely need OL, especially at RT. Diehl is plain bad now, and apparently Brewer is worse because he couldn't crack the lineup even with aforementioned Diehl in there...

                      If he's still there at 19, i'm down... but most mocks have him going between 12-17...

                        It would depend on the offense but a run first team that primarily depends on short to intermediate passing routes could probably get away with Fluker at RT. With the Giants offense using deep passes so often, you need a RT that can hold up in pass protection for an extended period of time and Fluker looks like the type to get eaten alive by pass rushers at the next level on those kinds of downs. We might as well just stick with Brewer who already has 2 years in our system and when you get down to it, is Fluker really that much of an upgrade?

                        You just don't take an OL player in the 1st with so many needs unless it's a LT or a "can't miss" sort of prospect at another position like some think Warmack is at G. We could use some more interior OL depth but the front 7 on defense should be the biggest priority.

                        I saw what Eli Manning with some actual time to throw can do last night.
                        It was the Pro Bowl though man. You saw the cushions the DBs were giving them right? Anyway, we can upgrade our offense all we want but we're not going to be able to stand up to even better offenses if we fail to get a pass rush on them or get owned by runs to the side because our linebackers fail to get there in time.

                          I'd be happy with Fluker if some others guys I like were gone, although I agree #19 is a tad high for him. He could use some improvement in pass protection but destroys people in the running game. He' still young too. Great attitude though and MASSIVE... They don't call him Planet Fluker for nothing. I don't think there's any chance he plays guard though. I'd be willing to bet Barrett Jones is still there at #19 and I think he'd be the better long term get.

                            So let me get this straight.....You are using a Pro Bowl performance with non existent defense to draw your conclusions about what Eli could use?

                            Just checking.
                            Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

                              Id look at Barrett Jones maybe before Womack and Fluker. Reason being is his ability to play different positions on the OLine with excellence. That kid was 3 championships playing 3 diferent positions on their OLine
                              Football has been very, very good to us.
                              After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                              But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                              # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                              1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                              2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                              3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                              4-New York Giants!!!
                              5-NE
                              Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!
