    So you can see the future? lol.

    Brewer and Mosley seem very similar and I personally don't have a dog in the race. Either way is fine with me.
    Why won't they carry 7 LBs? They have had 7 or 8 in '10, '11, '12 and '13. Last time they didn't they went with 3 QBs and 4 TEs. Doubt both of those happen this year.
    There are no locks. Why is McBride a lock? I like him don't get me wrong, but he has not spent more than 1 year with a team since he was waived by the Bears in '09.

    The rest of your post is just stating that I am wrong and you are right, which is fine, but you offer no reason why. Wish there was more to discuss. Guess we can revisit this post come August/September.

      Berhe can make the club over Cooper Taylor I think. I'd be surprised if Cooper is on the team come Sept.. Berhe is instinctive playmaker who hits hard. Thats the kinda stuff thats noticed during preseason games, if you know what I mean.

        I agree. I have heard talk of Taylor going to LB. If that is true it would be his best shot to make it. DB is a packed house right now.

          Am I the only one who thinks Quarles is better than Bromley? Apparently JR doesn't.
          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

            I think Quarles will be a huge steal.

              bromley had 10 sacks, 9.5 for Quarles, almost even though i beleive Bromley has a better swim move inside. Both are decent interior pentetrators though.

                Projected 53-man roster (however, I do think we pick up a veteran TE like Finley or Keller):

                OFFENSE: 25
                QB: Eli Manning, Ryan Nassib
                RB: Rashad Jennings, David Wilson, Andre Williams, Peyton Hillis
                FB: John Connor
                WR: Victor Cruz, Odell Beckham Jr., Rueben Randle, Jerrell Jernigan, Mario Manningham, Trindon Holliday
                TE: Adrien Robinson, Xavier Grimble, Kellen Davis
                OT: Will Beatty, Justin Pugh, Charles Brown
                OG: Geoff Schwartz, Chris Snee, John Jerry, Brandon Mosley
                C: Weston Richburg, JD Walton

                DEFENSE: 25
                DE: Jason Pierre-Paul, Robert Ayers, Damontre Moore, Mathias Kiwanuka
                DT: Cullen Jenkins, Johnathan Hankins, Jay Bromley, Kelcy Quarles, Mike Patterson
                OLB: Jameel McClain, Spencer Paysinger, Jacquian Williams, Devon Kennard
                ILB: Jon Beason, Mark Herzlich
                CB: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Prince Amukamara, Walter Thurmond III, Trumaine McBride, Jayron Hosley, Bennett Jackson
                S: Antrel Rolle, Stevie Brown, Nat Berhe, Quintin Demps (((Will Hill most likely suspended and not taking up roster spot)))

                SPECIAL TEAMS: 3
                K: Josh Brown
                P: Steve Weatherford
                LS: Zac DeOssie
                I like this projection -- the few places I might dispute are......

                QB -- my preference is Josh Freeman over Nassib
                RB - I might prefer Cox over Hillis but depending on who Giants deem the better S/T player I'm ok either way
                LB - I'm wondering if Dennard may knock out Herslich as there was some reference to him being able to play the middle
                CB - I would think B-Jackson making it is suspect --- wasn't there another FA CB we picked up late?

                  I definitely would have said Quarles before the draft but since Giants and everyone else passed on him during the draft I'm not so sure.

                  I'm really hopeful that both kids play big and make the team - provide depth/inside pass rush in a 3 man rotation with Jennings as 3 techniques. I would prefer Kuhn be the odd man out and these 2 make the roster.

                      53 projections are tough because preseason injuries alters everything. I think some young players are going to be stashed on IR. My early IR vote goes to rookie Devon Kennard.

                      Practice Squad stashing candidates could be X. Grimble and K. Quarles.

                      Larry Donnel doesn't qualify for the practice squad any longer so he has a 50/50 chance of making the roster. Management likes him so he has a good shot if he plays well like he did in preseason last year.

                      Kuhn is in a tough situation because he hasn't made an impact and he is the odd man out right now IMO. He might get cut this year if he doesn't have a strong offseason.

                      4 RB will make the roster and I think Peyton Hillis might be on the bubble. Andre Williams kind of makes he expendable. Cox may be the cheaper option to keep over Hillis.

                      My not so bold prediction is Freeman won't make the team and the team only carries 2 QB's. Freeman lost confidence and he was only brought in because the team needed solid camp bodies at that position. Nassib will be Eli's backup.

                      Lastly, I am disappointed about the Will Hill situation. He subliminally had the biggest impact on the Giants draft IMHO. Team captains have always been something JR been high on, but he reached for Bromley when higher value guys at the same position were available, eg. Louis Nix.

                        This one's a little different...

                        QB (3): Manning, Freeman*, Nassib
                        RB (4): Jennings, Wilson, Williams, Hillis
                        TE (2): Robinson, Davis or Grimble
                        FB (2): Conner, Hynoski
                        WR (6): Cruz, Beckham, Randle, Jernigan, Manningham, Holliday
                        OT (3): Beatty, Pugh, Brown
                        OG (3): Schwartz, Snee**, Jerry
                        C (2): Walton, Richburg (Richburg may win starting position though)

                        *If Nassib leapfrogs Freeman, 3rd QB slot eliminated and remaining TE on the bubble added.
                        ** If Snee breaks down due to injury, Mosley makes the roster as a backup and Jerry is promoted to RG.

                        DE (4): Pierre-Paul, Ayers, Moore, Kiwi
                        DT (4): Hankins(1), Jenkins(3), Bromley, Patterson
                        OLB (4): McClain(S), Paysinger(W), Williams, Kennard
                        MLB (2): Beason, Herzlich
                        CB (6): Amukamara, Rodgers-Cromartie, Thurmond, McBride, Hosley, Bowman
                        S (5): Rolle, Brown, Hill*, Demps, Taylor (S/LB hybrid),
                        *If Hill is suspended, add Nat Berhe to roster

                        K: Brown
                        P: Weatherford
                        LS: DeOssie

                        PS candidates: Preston Parker WR, Eric Herman OG, Michael Cox RB (was not active enough games to constitute a full season), Xavier Grimble TE (unless he makes roster), Nat Berhe SS (unless he makes the roster), Bennett Jackson CB

                        I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                          Bromley and Quarles are both good looking prospects.. THey both can rush the passer which is huge. Reese getting em both , regardless of the way he got em, is more important then anything else.

                            I agree that his best chance might be switching to WLB, where he could challenge Paysinger and J.Williams for PT.

                              Does anyone believe Quarless can beat out Patterson? The way it's looking, Hankins, Jenkins and Bromley are locks to make the 53. I don't know if the Giants may get away with stashing him on the practice squad.

                                Patterson is on a 1 year deal. If Quarles looks decent they will sign him and not risk someone swooping in to pick him up. I think that is a big reason why some of these younger guys will have an edge over the vets.
