    Take a center.Baas sucks and Cordle is not that good either.Does anyone know of any good centers coming out this year?

    Yes. There's multiple centers this year. I probably wouldn't take one until the fourth, so you're possibly looking at a guy like Bryan Stork.

      No doubt and I would also try to find one in free agency.

        4th round for a position we need the most to protect the highest paid most improtant player on the team???

        We need to draft OL the entire draft

          Depending on the quality of the center, I would draft up to the 2nd round on one. I think for next years draft, you trade back and take the best guards and centers in the draft. "Go to town in the 2nd round".

            I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who feels this way. Between free agency ant the draft, we need 2 new guards and 2 centers (one who can play mtpl positions). Hopefully all of them are young with no history of injuries. Keep our starting tackles and add one. Make Booth compete for a backup position.

              Common knee jerk. There are holes all over the team. The first three rounds are choc full of defensive talent. There are guards I'd take before some of the centers. They can still address the interior of the oline through free agency which will be relatively cheaper than signing a veteran CB or DE.

                Baas still has another year left on his expensive contract. Maybe we can reach an injury settlement with him and possibly release him.. If that doesn't happen I don't see us spending money on another FA center.

                  Giants can't really release him on an injury settlement this year as it would accelerate his bonuses to which we only have 300k in free cap. He can be cut in the offseason.

                    How much would that go against the cap if we just cut him outright?

                      Baas has a 2014 salary cap # of $8.475 Million if he's on the Giants Roster. $3.225 if he's not. I answered my own question. =)

                        That is the number for a June 1st cut which splits the remaining dead money between two years in 2014 and 2015. Otherwise, he has a hit of over 6mil due to all the restructures.

                        edit: You're talking about cutting him now, in which the same might apply in splitting the remaining numbers between this year and next. Unfortunately, the Giants don't even have the cap room to do that.

                          This is a great center class. In my opinion, there are about 4-5 guys who are at least as good as the 1st center taken last year(Travis Fredrick.)

                              So ignore 1 of the worst defenses in the NFL that can't get any pressure on the QB. Ignore there is 1 corner on the team we can count on under 30, Ignore the awful LB situation. Nope once Snee is gone go FA and a legitimate Guard or 2 . Center is 1 of the least valued positions historically in the draft u can get one in the 3rd or 4th round that will be the 3rd or 4th best in the entire draft. That will be the 15th best pass rusher
