  • Sign a veteran TE and draft one in the later rounds..



    Possible veterans to look at:




    Visante Shiancoe - Former Giants that has great hands, decent blocker. No QB in MN.




    Joel Dreessen - Really athletic and didnt get the love because of Owen Daniels




    John Carlson - Traditional Giant-like TE. Tough, Big, Strong and good all around game.




    Leonard Pope - Big dude who is an excellent blocker. Athletic enough to get downfield. No QB in KC.




    Draft:




    Round 3 - Michael Egnew, Missouri.... big, athletic guy that fell off the map this past season, but he can play.




    Round 4- Ladarius Green, Louisiana Lafayette.... freakish athlete. instant offensive threat, but needs to add some weight and develop his blocking.




    Round 5 - Nick Provo, Syracuse... caught everything. Great hands and good runner. Needs to work on blocking.

    "Hey, let me buy you a pack of gum. I'll show you how to chew it."

    2014 Draft:
    Round 1 - Eric Ebron, TE - North Carolina
    Round 2 - David Yankey, OG - Stanford
    Round 3 - Allen Robinson, WR - Penn State
    Round 4 - Anthony Johnson, DT - LSU
    Round 5 - Rashaad Reynolds, CB - Oregon State
    Round 6 - Andrew Jackson, ILB - W. Kentucky
    Round 7 - ** Traded for Jon Beason **

      This is 1 of our few options. If we cant get a vet TE, then we have to look to draft 1 earlier possibly still need another guy late round for depth.

      We just have nobody at the position right now

        Carlson is a ****ty blocker, so he isn't a traditional Giants TE.

        Dreessen is the best option IMO. He is by far the best run and pass blocker, and has good hands. He won't command a lot of money..

          Leonard Pope to replace Ballard to be a decent, low cost signing.
          I see us drafting Allen or Fleener is the top 2 rounds.
          if someone like ERodriguez is UDFA i can see us signing him to take over Bekhum's role.
          Pascoe returns as te/fb

            i think reese will stick with hopkins and pascoe and see how that works out. then make a move if one goes down or if hopkins doesnt develop. we all thought we desperately needed a new TE after boss and reese stuck with ballard who knew the system. it worked out pretty well. ive all but completely abandoned second guessing anything reese does anymore.

                You forgot to add Shockey to the vet TE list. LOL

                  Sign Shiancoe, and draft Green! If he doesn't work out at TE, he can play WR....
