He's someone who has driven up the boards since his killer combine and gained more stock after a great pro day.. his speed is exceptional for 6'6" 278. You can take his division into consideration but I think his numbers even that out, as he outperformed the other top prospects there (and I realize numbers aren't everything but they don't lie either:
    Howard: 45 catches, 595 yds, 3 TDs
    Njoku: 43 catches, 595 yds, 3 TDs
    Everett: 49 catches, 77 yds, 4 TDs
    Shaheen: 57 catches, 867, 16 TDs

    I say no way is he there for our 3rd round pick. Someone will see his measurable, numbers, testing, and want an all around TE.
    Just checked the most updated mock draft I could find first. I'm sure there are plenty. This one (from FOXsports.com) had him going in the 5th.

    Edit: Another mock draft on Foxsports.com has him going 80th. Mid 3rd round but still 7 picks before our 3rd round pick. And one on nfl.com has him going early 3rd. So yeah he has definitely gone up a bit since last I checked. I've looked at 5 recent mocks and have only seen one with him in the 2nd. I'm sure there plenty though. With those numbers I wouldn't doubt someone getting after him early.

      1. Christian McCaffrey RB Stanford
      2. Raekwon McMillan ILB Ohio State
      3. Roderick Johnson OT Florida State
      4. Jordan Leggett TE Clemson

          Probably Christian McCaffrey. I think he could be a good player in the right system, but we have Perkins and need more of a bulldozer type.
          WE ALREADY HAVE A GREAT RUNNING BACK:

                Reese has done a better job in very recent drafts of not doing this.

                It seems like the GIANTS are back to a Philosophy of Football Player first, and then good measurables along with that, as opposed to Projects with good Measurables.

                  Yea the right system being NE. Then he would terrorize the NFL for 10 years making every team wish they'd drafted him
                  Football has been very, very good to us.
                  After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                  But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                  # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                  1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                  2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                  3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                  4-New York Giants!!!
                  5-NE
                  Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                    Seriously???? I like Perkins, but McCaffery is far more talented. And while getting a bruiser RB would be nice, it is not a necessity. This isnt the NFL of the 1990's. Matchup nightmares are key and thats what McCaffery is.

                      Probably some guy with a long African sounding name. For some reason or another we like taking those guys with hard to pronounce last names.

                        I like Shaheen. I think hed be worth it even though I like Hodges a bit more personally

                            Eh. He will be good, but I dont see him much of an upgrade over Perkins. Im pretty high on Perkins and apparently lower than most on McCafferey. Like I said, I think he will be good, maybe great with a team like NE or NO, but not here. I just dont see him being utilized here right. I can see it now, Eli handing off to him 10-15 times in a shotgun formation for him to get hit in the backfield 90% of the time.
                            WE ALREADY HAVE A GREAT RUNNING BACK:

Still could of done it cheaper I'm.

                              Yep he always reaches for a guy that leaves even the Analysts scratching their heads saying he could of got them at the back end or even as an UDFA yet he takes them in round 3 or so.

                              Many times the pick leaves us sayin' "Who?" And scrambling to look the guy up, Lol

                              We can't really afford to have that happen as we need to hit on every pick this year
                              lets let the kid get on the field and play..ellison that is. he hasnt caught one pass or threw one block,,lets wait to see before labeling him an overpay.

                                any of the overrated 1st round lineman prospects would be my WTF pick.
