  • Team Needs in order of importance

    Offensive Line - We've got a franchise QB who's at the peak of his powers, we need to protect him. We've got a core of recievers who are fast and strong, and it seems Eli can turn any marginal offensive player into a weapon, but that only happens if he is protected. This has to be our top priority and there are many highly rated OL prospects in this draft.

    IN addition, this will extend the life of our 2 backs. I think we should draft a back in later rounds, but a better OL makes Bradshaw and Jacobs better and extends their careers as well. We've gotta get this done.

    LB
    RB

    in all honesty, i think were good at lb. as long as boley comes back, kiwi keeps killin it, and goff comes back in similar form to last season. then we got williams jones and paysinger backin them up. not the best core, but pretty solid.

    I think we should go

    OL
    CB
    RB

    CB just because websters solid, TT is a question mark coming back, Prince barely sees the field, and ross is ross (I want to see him do good so bad), but just almost as insurance, in case we lose TT, prince doesnt pan out, and ross doesnt improve

        Before this season started, we were thin at LB, but LOADED at CB and DE... Then Tuck gets mauled by the injury bug, Osi needs additional surgery, and Clint Sintim goes down forcing Kiwi to stay at LB, and we're left with Tolly and JPP.

        at CB, we were stacked and then we lose Johnson, Prince, TT24, Weatherspoon, Coe, sign and lose Tryon... and I might be forgetting some.

        At LB, we lose Goff, and Sintim, but then Boley and Kiwi play better than we could have hoped, Herz steps up and looks good, Blackburn comes back and plays great, and Williams looks like an absolute stud.

        My point being that there's absolutely NO way to tell what a team's needs are, or are going to be. The only way to combat that is to add as much talent as you can, regardless of position.

            I really would like them to address LB and OL in free agency.
            I also would like for them to add a true pass catching TE or a RB especially if Lamar Miller is there which I doubt he would be because the Bengals need a running back and i'm pretty sure they will take him with one of there picks.
            Oh yes and Baas was a bad free agent signing, Boothe was way better.

              [/quote] how are we good at LB? Can we compare our LBs to anyother position on our team talent wise? No matter how you cut it, LB is our probaly our weakest area on the team...

                I think bringing in anyone in FA other than vet min guys and backups is wishful thinking.

                I posted the list yesterday of all the FAs the giants have, pretty much every backup at every position is a FA.

                  If Thomas is resigned and healthy and Grant retires/leaves, do the Giants pursue that versatile third safety they were hoping for in Chad Jones?

                    were really not bad there, we have 4 rookies who show some promise, and goff coming back next year, boley and kiwi playing great... and sintim lol.

                    idk when whose contracts are up, but if we go into next season with the same core id be happy.

                      Agreed, but if a stud is available like say Hightower, we may jump on it. I think our biggest need is youth on the OL. Guard or Tackle.

                        OL
                        RB
                        DB
                        TE

                        Those are the 4 areas I'd like to most see us address. I think we cant leave it all to the draft either. Some of it has to be done during free agency.

                          This.

                          The vast majority of the best year in year out teams in the NFL address talent rather than pure need through the draft. Spending drafts picks - particularly rounds 1 - 3 - on the guys who are most likely to make it as long term pros is by far the best way of building a team, cost effectively.

                          In terms of areas I would like to see players drafted with an eye on - where we will need starters/quality back ups in a year or two (and given who we will lose in free agency this year and maybe next) - are in no particular order:

                          OT
                          QB
                          RB
                          TE
                          WR
                          DE
                          DB

                          As an aside, I'm not sure of the status of the draft pick from the Rosenfels/Reynaud trade in '10. Do we lose one of our seven picks still from this?

                              After seeing how well JPP has turned out it is hard to argue. You also make good points about injuries. I do think we need to go OL in the first unless there is a talent that just can't be passed up.
