    and he runs hard,,not afraid to go get it. I dont believe he caught many balls out of the backfield but then I also don't know if he was asked to do it or if it even was a big part of their offense. I saw him a few times, my cousin goes to stony, definitely worth a later round look. he did have some long TD runs in college,,sneaky fast but not david wilson. check him out against Syracuse last year.

      It won;t happen, but how great would it be to have Eli handing off to tandem of David Wilson and Eddie Lacey for the next few years.

      I think the Steelers will grab Lacey in the first round, but this guy would be a favorite if we could get him.

      Oh well, it's nice to dream.

      Also any thoughts on a RB in 3 or 4? Who do you guys like since that is more realistic?
      If you ask me I think we don't have the " luxury " of burning a 3 rd or 4 th pick on a RB.

            I am more apt to say LB(depending on who is there) or DE/DT, same scenario as LB,,,OL can be addressed from with in, or with cheap, serviceable FA's, and later rounds in the draft,,now if an absolute stud falls to us,,absolutely, but I think there is OL value in the later rounds, with less money to commit.

              I think the 5 th round will have a lot of value/need for us and not on RB considering the multiple needs we have. But if the Giants don't ink Brown then the RB position turns more into a need( depth wise ) and could reconsider drafting a RB in the 5th. Still I would not mind if Reese pulls again a rabbit out ot the hat drafting a " Bradshaw " in the 7 th round.

                With so many needs I think Reese will fill some of them in rounds 1 and 2 with BPA, again theres a lot of ways he can go in here depending how's available, OL ( OT, G, C ), LB ( ILB, SLB, WLB ), CB, DE, DT you name it but I respecfully disagree on value in later round in OL, if we end up drafting for " need " rather than BPA at G or OT then you have to use a 1st day pick to fill that need. It all depends if Boothe hits the road, same with Deihl. Even if you fill one of those needs with a cheap veteran FA you still end up short.

                  Lacey is a nice back....but I'm more interested in the Alabama line.

                  I really what Reese to binge on the SEC in the draft.

                    Exactly...How great are Ingram and T-rich doing? I love Lacey, but if I could trade the Giants starting Oline for Bama's I wouldn't even think twice
