  • Giants Draft LaMichael James

    James declares for draft. Scouts say he's a 3rd rounder. G-men should go after him in late 2nd round. I know running back is not a need for us at the moment. But by the time he fully understands the offense, Jacobs will be on his way out. Then it could be James and Bradshaw as the 1, 2 punch. He's led the nation in rushing for 2 straight years. Jerry Reese always says you should never pass up on talent even when that skill position is not a need.

    Yep, that's what we should do -- draft a third rounder in the second round . . . .

      Running back is a need. Jacobs might not be back.

          Not convinced he's a pro back. Seems like a Steve Slaton wannabe.




          I was bothered by the fact that they benched him at the end of the USC game and were moving the ball so well without him.

          Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

            I would love to draft him in the 3rd but I don't expect him to ever be a 1000 yard rusher. He's simply too small and has an injury history.

                Ron Dayne was awesome in college. Bottom line is, college stats dont necessarily mean he will produce the same in the NFL. I would be actually very upset if we spent a 2nd rd pick on James. He's small and has a history of being hurt. No thanks I will pass, give me Doug Martin anyday of the week over him.

                  Most would argue Dayne's college production was a product of his Oline.

                  You cant make the same claim about James' line which is very small. Some of his yards are definitly a product of the system in which he plays for sure.

                  I do not think James is an ideal fit for us, but I do think he is an amazing player. In the right system he will thrive. In my eyes, he is similar to a Sproles type player. But there are backs I like more for us. However, I would not be upset if he found his way onto our roster.

                      There is a ton of guys who would be good 2nd round picks for us and i put Lamichael James in that group. All though if i was going RB in rd 2 I'd hope CHRIS POLK of WASHINGTON was still around becuase i feel he would be a sensational duo with Bradshaw markelle martin S Ok St is another guy i'd love in RD 2 and Kevin Zeitler G Wisconsin is another . Heres the list of guys i'll be hoping for in RD 2 obviously depending what we do in RD 1

                      markelle martin s ok st
                      chris polk rb washington
                      lamichael james rb oregon
                      casey hayward cb vanderbilt
                      travis lewis lb oklahoma
                      dwayne allen te clemson
                      kevin zeitler g wisconsin
                      matt reynolds ot byu
                      stephon gilmore cb south carolina(would be ideal replacement for webster when time comes)

                              That would be awesome if the first three rounds went that way. I do however feel we need a RT in the first three rounds as Kareem has declined and I am not sure if Brewer is his replacement. Matt Reynolds would fit in nicely. He is tenacious.
