  • I guess I'm in the minority...

    I went into this draft hoping that we'd draft three OL in the first 3 rounds. I'll take 1 OL and DL though. Our DL got pushed all over last year. He haven't had a good run stopper in a while and Tuck is flat out over-rated these days. Not the same guy we signed after 2007. Adding two more solid DL is nice. Exciting? Not really. But once Cruz is re-signed to play with Nicks, Randle and Wilson how much more excitement to you need?

    We could have used a little help at corner, but TT should be back, Ross is back, Webster hopefully rebounds (I don't want to see him playing against #1 receivers anymore) and Amakamura looked solid last year. That's not bad.

    Everyone wants to see a solid MLB wearing blue...maybe next year. For now the lines look a little better than they did last year and that's a good thing. I actually like this draft.

    I am with you. I might be the only one who likes the Nassib pick...

      No, it's not bad, but I was hoping it would be shored up more. As you said a run stopper is needed.

        true, could have gotten Jesse Williams much later though..

          I'm fine with the draft. OL and DL were the team's biggest failings last year, and the team made an effort to address them early. Wasn't expecting a quarterback, but he was just sitting there so why not. The move gives the team options for the future as well as providing a long-term, low-cost #2.

            A 4th rounder and 6th rounder for a backup QB is a "low cost" ?

              I meant in monetary terms. Carr costs $1 million per year, Nassib will be around half that for 3-4 years.

                What are the odds of a 6th rounder even making a team like the giants.
                Engage brain before speaking.

                  Reese stated on NFL.com presser that his reason was.... enough said. I think many people are missing the forest for the trees

                    I like our draft too. Not sure why Michael Cox, RB, but I'm sure there must be something they saw. Is he a FB?

                      Ya'll are blowing smoke up JR's skirt and it doesn't deserve it one little bit. OT isn't the only spot we need filled. Baas is not the answer @ C. Boothe is a good back up not a 1 and snee is getting older. So, truth be known we need a lot of help on the OL not just one spot. We need DT's agreed but you buy 3 of them before the draft knowing they're not the ones. I don't get it. Is that more of reeses slight of hand! We need another CB, could have had it, we need a MLB, could have had it but no we reach to the alumni's heaven and waste a pick and a half. Not happy

                        Baas isn't the answer, but his cap number being what it is means he just has to remain there.

                          ..a 6th. Not a 4th and 6th.
