  • The Analysts Say....

    I'm a little surprised, but almost all of the analysts LOVE the pick we made. They said it was a brilliant move by Jerry Reese.

    Mike Mayock said it was an "absolutely great pick by the Giants".

    The Czar at FoxSports says "Jerry Reese doesn’t miss a trick. Sensing a run on running backs, Reese tabbed Virgina Tech’s David Wilson with the last pick in the first round."

    ESPN analysts seem to like the pick too. The reception seems to be overwhelmingly positive.

    Its funny when the giants came on the clock, Mayock says

    "Well the giants always try to go BPA, so we have guys like David Wilson..."

    First guy out of his mouth as the BPA was the guy the giants took.

      He's a very good player I think people around here just got so convinced we were going with fleener or even Glenn. The guys are still up on the board and I think well be happy with him in the end I see plenty of upside

        Well they either gotta roll with Reese's decisions and like his picks or continue looking like clueless dimwits. I think they threw in the towel.

          He has the making to do great thing in this offensive scheme and to be in the mixture for years to come, it's incredible he is only 20 years old and it looks like he has room to grow. I think fans always have their favorites players to choose in the draft but make no mistake, I will say it again, IMPACT PLAYER, this kid is the real deal and will be productive running the ball and in ST.

            Call me nuts here but I think Reese is now entering what I call "Belichick world". What I mean by that is you will see experts and analysts praise every little thing he does in the draft. He's always been a good GM and Giants fans have known this for a few years but now that he is known to the public, he's going to get more praise on moves than he should.

            Is the David Wilson pick bad? Not at all.

            Is it "excellent"? I think that's a bit much personally and there were much better moves by GM's this year in round 1 so far.

I thought we would go Oline but I'm not upset about this pick at all. Bradshaw needs somebody spell him, Ware isn't exactly what you would call explosive and apparently Scott has some fumbling issues.

                But, you have to ask was there an "excellent" pick to be made at 32 or just a bunch of "good" ones?

                  Unfortunately, so does Wilson.

                      That doesn't worry me.

                      Bradshaw had some fumbling issues a couple years ago too. Then, Master Coughlin laid down the law and how many fumbles did Bradshaw have last year? 1. If anyone can fix the fumbling problem, it's Sensei Coughlin.

                        [/quote]The Giants left themselves in a situation where good value wasn't present at 32. While I personally like Fleener and a few others at the spot instead, Wilson isn't that bad of an alternative BUT...We do know that at one point, the Giants were looking to trade back into the 2nd but they didn't succeed.

                        Reese did OK, so-so, average, not excellent IMO

                          Dont agree with that. Giants dont determine what value there is at 32, the draft does.

                          Reese said before the draft that he felt the back end of the first round the players were all very similar and that most were 2nd round type players.

I didn't follow the season last year like I usually do and VTech being a personal top 5 favorite school of mine, I'm shocked and disappointed in myself for not even knowing who Wilson is... I'm slipping. I heard thru the grapevine that we were actually targeting Martin. Well anyway, who knows...maybe they're searching for a return specialist/all around player like Tiki's early years.

We know Reese wanted to move back but he wasn't able to and so, he failed there.

                              I just don't agree with calling the drafting of David Wilson at 32 an excellent and brilliant move when there were much better selections in the draft.
