      There's a guy named Da'Rel Scott. I expect him to be more involved this season. He has the potential to be the "Victor Cruz" for next season. Giants may still go after another RB. Patience.... The first week of free agency is barely over and the draft is late next month.

          This is a solid RB draft I think they will take one when value presents itself. I still think Jacobs will return as well

            Frankly, I don't like veteran running backs, unless they are young vets.




            I'd much prefer we draftsome kid out of the SEC that is used to playing against top competition.




            The position is so brutal, I'd prefer youth.







            Anyone expecting Bradshaw to be both healthy and productive this entire season is smoking crack, though. The Giants need help here.

              I really like Tolbert too I think its a great compliment to Bradshaw however I really think the Giants will DRAFT a RB. Most likely in the first 2 rounds.

              I really like LaMichael James, LaMar Miller, and Dave Wilson.

                I found on one mock today:
                Chris Polk from Washington Huskies looks like and excellent prospect that could be had in the early 2nd round...Has a great yards after catch. Great college career showing good health, and consistency. This would be my 1st pick even at #32 overall. He has decent size and weight to bring the power rungame.

                  I like Polk as well....was thinking the exact same thing....looks like a quality, productive back that will be available.

                    Honestly, I like the guys we have. Bradshaw needs to stay healthy, Ware is good on screens and short passes, Andrea Brown and Scott just needs more reps, and we should be fine. We have more important needs, like the guys who block for the RB's. We need depth at the O-line, and healthier and more proven LB's except for Boley. I gon't know how Goff is gonna be by season's end. But back on the subject, I think you roll the dice with what you already have, or if we pick up someone maybe Brown gets cut.

                      I like Bradshaw alot....but his feet will not get any better.

                        I had to start a thread on Polk...i think the kid needs recognition...anyways

                        I like Andre Brown over Ware and honestly think this kid could become a starter, he just needs to hit high gear if he is going to do it with the Giants in 2012...I don't think he can go on the practice squad again. I heard some issues about Scott that he has small hands and if his fumbling isses are a result of that, he may need extra time to work on that. He can't overcome small hands but ball position and protection techniques will be require of him to learn and make it become second nature to him....I like his speed though and that makes me optimistic...Bradshaw could be the odd man out if we pick Polk and keep Brown and if Scott can overcome fumblitis

                            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

In fact, his skills would mesh nicely with Bradshaw, who is our bruiser, and Scott would be our break a big one back..




                              I'd still like to bring in another back, and Doug Martin has held my highest RB in this draft behind T.Richardson for quite awhile now, but even if we dont' get Martin, or don't even go RB early, and take a late rd flier on a guy, i think theres quite a few guys that could possibly be pretty good, including another Maryland back, and former Giants RB's son, Davin Meggett.. Also, Brandon Bolden of Ole Miss would be worthy of a later rd flier, and i'll add W.Kentuckys Bobby Rainey to the list as well...
