    Think it is more about what the top three would have looked like if they took Donald in the first - who do you take in the second and third. If you don't take Richburg in the second and take a receiver you get Montcrief or someone of that caliber (not bad at all) but what is left in the third for Center, still solid picks I suppose. I think the way they attacked it they got solid players in the top three, actually the top 4 spots in the draft. I think there were lots of options to address the WR, OL and DL and they decided this was the way to go; we'll have to wait to see how things pan out this year to really tell how their strategy worked.

      I think it was a good pick, just a few rounds earlier than I thought he would go. He was my sleeper pick late, guess he wasnt that much of a sleeper.

      With that said, Donald will be the sexier DT on the field. Bromley could end up a solid DT, rotating with Hank Jenkins ect... Donald will start from the get go and put up the numbers. He has a motor like I havent seen since Sapp.

        I agree with it being a solid pick, I too was surprised, especially with the talent at DT still on the board. I think Donald starting will depend on how well he can play the run in the NFL. At worst I think he will be on the field for passing downs cause he clearly does that very well. That is a tough DL to crack into though for a rookie. Will be interesting to watch.

          I'm still upset that we didn't draft Donald. I really wanted that kid. Reese kinda made it up for me when he drafted Bromley, as he was my second favorite pick right behind Richburg.

            the fact the coaching staff thinks bromley can get up to around 320 and still be able to get after the passer intrigues me, thats the size of the average NT, absolutely massive for a 3tech.

            donalds drive and motor makes up for his size, i think bromley has that size and power naturally.

              Bromley did play a lot of 1T and even 0. It's possible they see him as one.

                Why would you want to take away from his strengths though

                    When Cofield was our 1 tech he was #4 on the team in sacks behind Tuck, Osi and Kiwi. You can be a 1 tech and rush the passer.

                      I'm not so sure that's his strength yet. He looks great laterally and holding a point. A lot of his sacks didn't come from him shooting his gap. There is still a lot to mold with him.

                        When they didn't draft Donald I thought it was due to the fact that they believed the answer was in house, then they drafted Bromley and brought in a plethora of DT's in the UDFA process, now I'm like huh? There is no way Beckham graded better overall than Donald, even if its on the opposite spectrum of the ball, I'm just going to wait and see how this one plays out, maybe there was something to Donald that we didn't know about.

                          I think it's possible they had Beckham higher. There are more successful WRs with his height than there are NFL DTs with Donald's. They may have been turned off by that. Sounds like they had several players after Beckham, but before Donald.

                            This board graded Donald way higher than the Giants did. At the end of the day ODB will likely have more impact than Donald. People fell in love with Donald's pass rushing and pretty much ignored every other thing about him and his game.

                            I agree. I think Donald is a very hit or miss prospect.

Am I missing something
                              wait 3 years. If our 3rd rounder is still on the team, I'll buy you a brand new shiney galaxy s whatever or iphone whatever that year

                              cool?

                              basically what Im saying is, he sucks and he'll start to show sings of that this year. Cant wait!

                                We were not the only ones a lot of Analyst, coaches, draft pundits thought A.Donald was a better prospect, he was always mocked higher than Beckham, graded higher in every top 50-100 prospects, A lot of people bypassed his size for his motor ad pass rushing ability, which is why he was drafted in the first round, if it wasn't for that motor and dominance he would of been a day 4 prospect
