    A close friend of mine that works in the Giants scouting department told me that there is one player in the first the Giants are extremely high on and are even willing to trade up if he falls within 5 spots and that player is Xavier Rhodes.

    I myself like Rhodes as well, but Reese likes his draft picks. If Reese trades up 5 spots, he most likely loses a 2nd or 3rd rd pick? There is a lot of talent in the 2nd and 3rd rd, I would hate to miss out on a quality pick there.

      Rhodes would be a solid choice.. I don't know about trading up for him though

      I think if he makes it past Tampa & Miami, he'll be there at #19

        Oh how I'd love for this to be true but can't see him falling to us and doubt Reese would drop draft picks just to move up and get him.

          Theres to much talent on the board to trade up.. If he falls to 19 and thats who we take, i'm all for it, but its hard to say if Rhodes is that much better then Jamar Taylor, Desmond Trufant, Darius Slay , and Jordan Poyer to trade up and give up a precious pick... Its also not really the reese way...

            I think this is one of the worst drafts in recent memory to trade up for.

              The ironic part is its one of the best drafts i think i can remember, but mainly because the level of talent is so equal and so plentiful, that its hard to say whos clearly better then who?

                I have said to many friends/ co workers all fellow giants fans. If any year is the year to trade down for more picks this is it. with all the upperclassmen declaring the talent is bountiful we can get quantity/quality which is rare in the nfl

                  Yes, this is what i say as well. THe thing is, alot of these underclassmen would of been even higher picks had they gone back to school, and ur getting em in the 3rd, 4th and so on range, just a yr earlier is all.. A guy like Jelani Jenkins for example(just example), who will probably go late 3rd-4th range, most likely would of gone back to school, and been a 2nd, early 3rd guy at worst, and ur getting em in the 4th or so, because they simply declared early..

                    you may laugh at this but I had a dream in which we drafted Rhodes, don't know why though since I'm not really excited about him or any other draft prospect. That being said Rhodes would be a good pick.

                      It's deep at several positions, but lacking in top end talent in the first. Wait it out which will include several reaches and some player will fall or just trade back as the talent gap isn't that great.

                        Well, I am a fan of rhodes and have said multiple times that I think he is exactly the type of player who fits our mold.

                        I dont really buy the whole "my friend is a Giant scout tho would risk his entire career by telling a poster on the boards our draft strategy" thing, but its ok. I do agree Rhodes is worth a lot.

                        However, I would disagree with those who think this 1st round is bad, or at least I would disagree about it being bad for the Giants. The knock on this draft class is that there are no stand outs. That the top 20 picks are all very close in value. I think that is a fair assessment. But we are picking 19th, which means we could hardly be in a better position because we can get equivalent talent at our pick to the guys picking way ahead of us. The only difference is we wont have to pay them as much.

                        Furthermore, I think a lot of draft class bashing is because there arent any premier, top notch clear cut star Qbs, RB or WRs. Those are the position the media loves.

                        But, we arent in need of those positions. We need Oline, DL, LB, CB and possibly Safety and TE. This is a decent class is every 1 of those areas. I consider the Giants kinda lucky to have a class strong in the areas of need for the current team. It allows us to concentrate moreso on value. That said, I think trade backs will be hard to come by this year. Teams will want more than usual.

                        FYI, it is also strongly rumored that Rhodes will not fall past Miami at the 12th pick.

                          Ya, i agree santa, its gonna be harder for teams to trade for extra picks this yr.. I think its more so that everyone is gonna want to add additonal picks this yr, becasue its not secret how closely grouped the prospects are this yr, and with all the underclassmen, u can get what would of been future 1st rders in the 2nd and 3rd rd range, so why trade up for just one of em and cost ur team picks?

                            No way we trade up for a CB.
