  • Predict our 1st round draft pick...

    Last year we picked #10 and I tried having a list of 5 guys I was sure to be our pick. I was wrong. Apple wasn't even in my top ten. So this year at pick #23 I will try to list 10 possibilities for our pick. I encourage everyone to do the same. See if you can get our pick right. Some of these guys will be gone, some will fall. Hopefully one of them is our pick. IMO the first 5 are head and shoulders rated higher than the 2nd 5. If one of them is on the board I think they are our pick.

    OJ Howard
    Dalvin Cook
    Christian McCaffrey
    Zach Cunningham
    Forrest Lamp

    Jabrill Peppers
    David Njoku
    Garett Bolles
    Raekwon McMillan
    Takkarist McKinley
    LT (132.5) -> Strahan (141.5) -> Osi (65) -> Tuck (60.5) -> JPP (50) -> ???

    It's a lot harder to predict at 23. I'll go with someone not listed amongst your 10. Cam Robinson.

    I figure Mccaffrey, Howard, Red****, and Bolles will be gone. Then, the guys I predict will be atop our board are Cook, Robinson, Cunningham, and Njoku. I'd be fine with any of them, but I think JR will think above Eli's closing window and grab the mailer with the potential to be an elite OT.

    He's not my favorite prospect, but I'm trusting my gut.

      I don't usually pick players I pick positions. I like Taco Charlton. He has the size and the speed to rotate with JPP and Vernon and he can play DT if needed.
      The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.

        Tyus Bowser, Derek Barnett, Malik Mcdowell, Evan Engram, Jarad Davis all could surprise.

        Ramcyzk is not on your board.

        I would be happy with any of the first 5, but good bit less happy with cook, as i think you could do better draft overall getting a late round RB, that is similar in style. I may be the only person in the world who thinks so, but i think dalvin cook is overrated at 23, especially with injury and off field concerns. Mccaffrey OTOH i see as the best route runner in the draft and a legit top 20 prospect and i would be ecstatic with C mcaffrey.

        If the pick is jabrill peppers, i'm officially quitting being a giants fan as they have obviously lost their way if that happens lol.

        Mccaffrey
        OJ Howard
        Derek Barnett
        forest Lamp
        Zach cunningham or tyus bowser

        if i had to rank them, i'd have a difficult time. They are all good. I really think we get ourselves a good player at 23, if those are the choices.

              Lamp
              Howard (not convinced hes a lock to go so high)
              Malik Mcdowell
              Cam Robinson
              Barnett

              Red****
              Cunningham
              Davis
              Njoku

                I have no idea who will be available but I think it will be Cunningham or Davis. One of them should be available. Red**** may as well but I just think the fact that hes never played the position before means we pass. I think one of the top 3 OTs as well as Lamp are possible but I think the 2 LBs are better prospects/fits. Howard and Njoku would be awesome too but this draft is stacked with TEs in later rounds. Same goes for RBs. Would love mccaffery or cook or kamara but could get better value in later rounds

                  That's really weird you posted this. I've been creating a list over the last day or so, and will continue to add each round to create a "big board." I try not to project players "guaranteed" to be gone, but will include a couple hopes. Here's what I've got so far for rd. 1.

                  In order.....for now....
                  Leonard Fournette - RB (Hope)
                  Reuben Foster - OLB (Hope)
                  OJ Howard - TE (Hope)
                  Forrest Lamp - OG/OT
                  Zach Cunningham - OLB
                  Garrett Bolles - OT
                  Ryan Ramczyk - OT
                  Malik McDowell - DT
                  Cam Robinson - OT
                  Taco Charlton - DE
                  Christian McCaffrey - RB
                  Dalvin Cook - RB
                  David Njoku - TE
                  NFL Draft (Realistic Hope):

                  Rd 1
                  Garrett Bolles - OT
                  David Njoku - TE
                  Zach Cunningham - OLB

                    Christian McCaffrey
                    Leonard Fournette
                    Forrest Lamp
                    Garett Bolles
                    Ryan Ramczyk (Maybe, depends on if his hip checks out. I don't have this info.)
                    Haason Red****
                    Zach Cunningham
                    Taco Charlton

                    I'd be surprised if the Giants selected a QB in the first round. That would wow me since I'm confident two QBs will be selected before the Giants pick. If two QBs are selected, two WRs, two RBs, and two TEs then someone has to be available at linebacker or offensive line because you know people are going to pick several CBs, DEs, and S.

                      I am soooooo hoping a few QB's get selected before us, the more the better...

                        It's a deep DB class too and we could see a good number of DBs go. I'd love 3 QBs and 6 DBs to go before our pick.

                          OT Robinson
                          RB McCaffrey
                          TE Njoku
                          LB Cunningham
                          OT Ram

                          I also wouldn't be surprised if Njoku were still available but JR has Engram higher on his board (safer pick) and going that route or grabbing Mahomes if he's there and they like him. JR never ceases to amaze me. I'm pretty much only on this forum during draft season and love seeing how completely wrong most of us are on picks and how teams' draft boards are so different from the analysts' boards, especially after the 1st round. It's still an exciting and fun process to hope and guess the picks.
                          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

                            it would honestly be one of the most shocking moves ever in Giants took Evan Engram in the 1st. Like i give that a .3% chance lol

                            and idk how Engram is safer? He's rarely if ever played on the line. So either he's going to have a learning curve just like Njoku, or they're going to line him up as WR.

                              My wish list:

                              Haason Red****
                              Malik McDowell
                              Dalvin Cook

                              Jarred Davis
                              Pat Mahomes

                              What Reese will probably do:

                              Zach Cunningham
                              Cam Robinson
                              Corey Davis
                              Deshaun Watson
                              Jarrad Davis
