    [quote user="YATittle1962"]what 2 players in the 1955 draft from rounds 3 and 5 did the Giants take?
    they both had a huge impact on things to come.
    [/quote]I know one was Rosie Greer. Only because i was looking at his rookie card just the other day...Along with the other Rosie- 1956 topps..both rookie cards...

          Rosie Brown was a 27th Round draft pick out of Morgan State I believe. Same school as Visante Shiancoe.

              I believe it was like the 27th round..




              Considered to this day, to be one of , if not the biggest steal in draft history...




              Besides Tom Brady of course...lol.

                      I have stacks of 50s 60s & 70s cards all graded.
                      mostly MT and NM
                      would love for you guys to see my collection.
                      cards and every Sports Illustrated the Giants were ever on the cover of. all very well protected.
                      plus lots of other stuff.

                      Anyone know who the other 1955 pick was I was talking about?
                      5th round.
                      one of my favorites.

                        Must be some cool stuff, especially the early 50s stuff..real hard to find in good condition..




                        For the other draft pick, offense or defense??

                              My main man # 33 Mel Triplett
                              he was like the Brandon Jacobs of those days.

                                Does Bob Timberlake ring a bell as the kicker [and maybe QB] who repaced Don Chandler?




                                Was Triplett that big? To young to remember?[]
