    2007 they had Antonio Pierce and Kawika Mitchell. 2011 they had Kiwi and Boley.

    I guess we are rolling on Rivers and Williams and praying they dont get hurt.
    WE ALREADY HAVE A GREAT RUNNING BACK:

      Don't quite measure up w Brown as he's got 4 inches on Brown and is almost 15 lbs lighter. He'll have to beef up and learn the role which will take some time if that's the route we chose. He does have boom or bust potential IMO and I'm def hoping its not the latter.
      2017 Draft Wishlist:
      1. Christian McCaffrey RB Stanford
      2. Raekwon McMillan ILB Ohio State
      3. Roderick Johnson OT Florida State
      4. Jordan Leggett TE Clemson
      5. Ryan Glasgow DT Michegan
      6. Chad Kelly QB Ole Miss
      7. Billy Brown WR Shepherd

        Yeah i agree definitely who knows whats going to happen with the LB position. Obviously its a position that the giants feel is a "coach em up" position. Reese has taken LB's in earlier rounds in previous drafts and they haven't panned out. Yeah he's lighter than Brown doesn't mean he can't pack on a few although 15lbs is a lot to gain in 4 months. Dropping him in during the 3 safety set closer too the box could be interesting.

        Just curious what were your thoughts on Kiko Alonso? He is much much closer to Cooper height wise and about 10lbs heavier and a little slower.

        I also woulnd't mind seeing Moore at the Sam in obvious passing downs. Or maybe for good. Didn't he play Some outside backer at A&M? Moore,JPP,Jenkins,Joseph,Kiwi should give O'line fits

          There are still some FAs out there. Think we may be surprised by an addition or two....

            I think once they sort everything else out, this may be the way they go. Bill Polian was talking about General Manager strategy on ESPN one day and he said the draft is where you take your BPA and developmental prospects and Free Agency and the waiver are where you fill your holes. The Giants still won't pick up any superstars, but they don't need any either.

              I have to assume the LBers in this draft didn't impress the Giants. They worked out Greene after all and let him pass them by in the 4th round (where he would have been a decent value).

              Same with Brown and Bostic in the second.

              We already know that LBer is the least priority on the defense in the current FO mindset.
              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)

                I agree with most of what you said. There must have been something either in Greene's play or in his personality that rubbed people, not just he Giants, the wrong way.


                People complaining about us not taking him seem to be overlooking the fact that he was projected to go WAY sooner than he did. We weren't the only team to pass on this kid for some reason. Most projections had him going early 3rd round at the worst, most were in the 2nd round. Mayock had him as a top 70 prospect for example.

                Something went wrong in his interviews or in his Doctor evals.

                  Really once Brown and Moore were gone, there was not much left at the position.

                  Greene is nothing special. Id take J Will over him.

                    I thought he would go sooner than he did. But, the 1 thing we amateurs can never account for is personality or intelligence. its not like we get to meet him in person, so we are forced to go on what we know.

                    I still think something about this kid was displeasing to NFL teams.

                    It could also just be the general trend in the league right now tho. With more passing comes less LBs on the field and more DBs.
