So All in All, a balloon deflating, but needed & probably wise draft, truly testing "in Reese we trust" IMHO
    Adding to the gloom was we gave up our 6th round pick, to go after our no need pick of Nassib, 7th round is a coin toss with UDFA, so it was all basically all over after Rd 5...so much for All the hype...

      Yes, and that will make this draft class most interesting to watch.

        I'm not excited about anything or anyone. I really don't expect much from anyone with the excption of Pough and thats becuase he's an immediate upgrade and i'm sick of deihls bs. I think we could have scored some solid players, but I don't see them being all that effective, but than again I'm not a scout, I'm just a man with an opinion that quite litterally means nothing. I'm usually right though.

          The most surprising thing about this draft was every pick the G'men made I was surprised at who they selected. I think I scrunched my face up too, weird!

            It was an odd draft for the NFL not just the Giants.

            I like our draft. We addressed both sides of the line and added value at the end. I don't even care what people think about Nassib. The Giants know what they are doing. If your pick wasn't selected then there was probably a good reason for it. These guys interview the players. They see more film than us. They have more data and metrics than us. They understand the Giants direction better than us.

            I'm just excited for these new guys, and I can't wait for the new season to begin. I feel MUCH better about our D and O lines.

            Let's get it Giants!

              I knew nothing about Nassib. But the fact that we gave up a pick for him tells me it was a planned strategic move for a guy we wanted. Not seat of the pants panic like the boys first round trade back because all their hopefuls disappeared and left them unprepared for that possibility. Giving up your 6th round pick to move up is hugely different than the boys giving up their 1st to pick up a third and very late 1st. Time will tell what Reese's plans are for this qb.

                I just thought it was funny when the majority of posters were like "who??" "Huh?!". Because they had NO idea who the pick was.

                      So maybe it wasn't the oddest draft!

                        That was me for our whole entire draft. I really don't follow college football prospects aside from the first rounders so I only know what I am told. I do my research after the picks are made.

                        I have to say it was odd but I also did not know what to expect. I ain't even gonna lie - I had no idea who Justin Pugh was when they called his name.

                        Let's put the women and children to bed and go lookin' for dinner

                          Nah, it wasn't odd. Fans fall in love with the idea of certain players being picked by the Giants...I do it every draft... and the Giants don't. When the first day is over and ESPN and NFL Network grade teams on their first day draft they usually talk about the greatest draft being conducted by teams with multiple first round picks(this year was Minnesota). The Giants will never rank up there because they pick projects and lunch pail guys a majority of the time.

                            If Diehl is not starting it was a good draft...

                              If it was odd, it means its a typical Giants draft.

                                I think I've been crying for 3 drafts for a clogger at DTand Oline help. We got both in this draft. Cooper will be player for the Giants and I'm talking more than special teams. I LOOOOOOOOOOOVEEEE THIS DRAFT!!!!!
                                Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.
