    GIANTS' JERRY REESE USES A SPECIFIC DRAFT STRATEGY AND LIKELY WON'T CHANGE THAT IN 2012

    "New York
    Giants General Manager Jerry Reese understands the NFL Draft. No one is questioning that. In his 6th draft as the General Manager of the team he is
    sitting with the 32nd selection for the second time and has hopes of being there
    even more often.

    Giants made their first round pick at the 2010 NFL Draft at Radio City Music

    In the NFL, there is a higher premium placed on certain positions,
    particularly quarterback and wide receiver. Defensively, pass rusher and
    cornerback take precedence. This is no coincidence. The NFL is built on big
    plays and the quarterbacks and receivers create them. The defensive ends and
    corners prevent them.




    Of course, football
    remains the ultimate team game, but as the NFL has evolved, the league has
    become more and more predicated on speed.




    Not only does Reese make it his prerogative to have very strong players
    across the secondary, out wide, and in the trenches, he bolsters those positions
    year after year and never rests on his laurels. His first five first-round
    selections have been cornerback, safety, wide receiver, defensive end and
    cornerback.




    Don't expect much to change about Reese in that regard this April. Some
    potential star cornerback, receiver, or pass rusher will slip down to the 32nd
    spot and Reese will be happy to snatch him up. A few names come to mind.




    1. TrumaineJohnson, CB, Montana




    Johnson is 6'3" 210 pounds. The Giants love their defensive backs to have
    size and if Terrell Thomas can not make it back to 100%, Johnson is another big
    physical corner. He has experience as he has played all 4 years at Montana.




    His size/speed combination also make him a solid candidate to move to safety
    in certain situations. He also has the production with 44 tackles and four
    interceptions this past season to prove he belongs.




    The team figures to lose safety DeonGrant, while Tyler Sash and Chad Jones
    remain serious unknowns. At the cornerback spot, Corey
    Webster
    figures to have some good years left but when the end comes, it
    comes very quickly and very brutally. With Aaron
    Ross
    and Terrell Thomas both unknown at this point, it makes sense to
    continue to get younger and stronger at what might be the NFL's most important
    position outside of quarterback.




    2. Devon
    Still
    , DT, Penn State




    Defensive tackle seems to be a fairly set position for the Giants with Chris
    Canty, Linval Joseph, MarvinAustin returning plus Jason Pierre- Paul and Justin
    Tuck
    playing some nickel defensive tackle.




    Still was a great pass rushing defensive tackle at Penn State, posting 17
    tackles for a loss this past season with 4.5 sacks. He started 25 games the last
    2 years as well.




    Again, production and experience at a premium position are there. Reese likes
    that.




    Still can swing around the defensive line and should fit into the Giants
    rotational scheme should OsiUmenyioraand or Mathias Kiwanuka leave in the next
    2 years.




    3. Reuben Randle, WR, LSU




    Still love the idea of adding a big (6'3") option for Eli
    Manning
    on the outside. Randle was a force in the SEC with questionable
    quarterback play at LSU.




    Size, production (a 17.3 yard per catch average and eight touchdowns this
    past season), and a unique skill set again fit what the Giants are looking
    for.




    The Giants are very thin at wide receiver behind Hakeem Nicks and Victor
    Cruz
    and Nicks had never started all 16 games. Also, Cruz has a future in
    the slot, where Jerrel Jerniganis limited to. He can be a nice option for the
    Giants, but Cruz has to be that guy in the slot for the Giants.




    Randle is a big strong flanker who can line up outside and give smaller
    defensive backs problems. You want to have as many of those as possible when Eli
    manning
    is your quarterback.




    Keep an eye out come draft day for the Giants to continue to bolster key
    positions."

      I don't really like either TEs in the first round but teams will reach for them after what NE did. If we get Ladarius Green in the 3r or 4th I will be happy
