    Re: So who we drafting?

    After this year I think that more and more teams will look for a good TE to add to their offense and I wouldn't be too surprised if a team grabs a TE in the 20-30 range. If that is Allen or Fleener i can't say but I don't think that both will be available when it's Giants time to pick.

    I wouldn't mind a TE but i'd rather go adding to the OL. Eli got hit a lot this season and our running game was really bad. Imagine Eli with a tad more time to make decisions and add a better running game to that. Now that could be a new Super Bowl team!

    With that said, OL is the way to go.

      Re: So who we drafting?

      Too early to say really.

      As it stands now we have no TEs on the roster for starting day next year and we could lose Manningham to FA as well.

      That would leave a huge hole in both the passing game and the running game.

      If we resign Pascoe and Ballard the need at the TE position drops significantly, but it is still a need. It just drop the need from a major priority to a secondary depth need. A guy like Egnew could help fill the role of Beckum and Manningham as a outside guy and we could get in later in the draft(barring an insane combine.)

      If we resign 1 of the 2, it is still a pretty significant need position unless we sign some other FA.

      And of course if somebody offers them both outlandish contracts and we cant bring them back, it becomes THE primary need.

      So, it all depends on what happens in FA. We dont have a lot of money to throw around, but we are the SB champs and people like to play for winners. So, lets see how it goes.

      I do think addressing our aging Oline is a huge need as well. Those 2 positions are my core concerns right now, with a few others falling in line behind them.

        I won't complain if we go OL early, but I think there are some guys that we could get late that have some great potential. Senio Kelemete and James Brown are some 3rd-4th round guys I like and Marcus Zusevics is a later round guy that has A LOT of potential. Very athletic, great feet, smart player but needs to add strength. Brandon Washington' stock has dropped this year but he'd be an great guard that we could get in a middle round. Antoine McClain & Blake DeChristopher could be decent options in the later rounds.

          Ballard also tore his ACL in the superbowl.

          Neither will be ready for next season.

          Only TE on the roster is UFA Pascoe.

              Lets narrow it down a little. Who are you taking?
              A. TE Coby Fleener

                Excluding 'G', I vote Fleener. Pascoe can play blocking TE while Fleener receives or blocks down field following a pull/trap.

                I'm not crazy about taking an O lineman in the first unless the value is stellar (there's usually better lineman value later on in the draft)

                I can't pick G unless I know who else is on the board, or what how guys tested at the combine.

                      In order of who I'd pick

                      Adams
                      Fleener
                      Allen
                      Glenn

                      I don't consider Minnifield, Burfict first round/early second round talents at 32. Gilmore 's value will lie in a team that primarily runs zone.

                        [quote user="XxBigWhitxX"]I say we go O-line. Peter Konz at C is my favorite at the spot. I could also see Cordy Glenn as our next RT. Other names to watch:

                        Chase Minniefield

                        Alphonso Dennard

                        Vontaze Burfict

                        Alshon Jeffery

                        Dwayne Allen

                        Johnathin Martin

                        Whitney Mercilus

                        Nick Perry

                        Mohamed Sanu.[/quote]I too am a fan of Konz as a late 1st rd pick. But Allen or Fleener would be a close second for me as well.

                          Plz no. He had such a bad senior bowl practice week that some teams may have removed him completely off their draft boards. A corner who can only make plays in front of him because his hips are too tight to turn is not something I want on this team.

                          He is a guy who stock is way down after that week.

                            Reese has been very consistent in how he drafts and acquires TE's.
                            Boss - 6th rd
                            Beckum 3rd rd
                            Pascoe 6th rd and cut by 49ers
                            Ballard undrafted and practice squad

                            At this point I don't see him suddenly waking up and saying "I've been wrong, I should draft a TE in the first round." I am not saying this because of how I feel about the guys being mentioned or even because of how I feel about Reese's drafting. Its purely an observation.

                              Three things we need:

                              1) A new O-line
                              2) A new freight train-style running back a la Jacobs, but younger. (bonus if he can pick up blitzes like a boss)
                              3) Not from the draft, but we need to develop Dominek Hixon, Devin Thomas, and Jerrel Jernigan in-house. If we can get another wideout of at least Manningham quality from one of those, we'll be set in WR. If we can get a wideout and another slot receiver, we could even put out some 4 WR sets and the need for a receiving TE wouldn't be as drastic.

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