  • Expect the Giants to sign a LB in FA or draft in the First Round

    They cut Michael Boley, they lose Rivers in FA...

    That leaves

    OLB - Williams and Kiwi and Paysinger

    ILB - Blackburn and Herzlich

    No way they allow this unit to go unaddressed.

    Possible FA = Rey Maualuga, Dannell Ellerbe, Philip Wheeler, Erin Henderson

    Possible Draft Picks = Round 1 - Jarvis Jones, Kevin Minter, Alec Ogletree
    Round 2 - Manti T'eo, Khaseem Greene, Arthur Brown, Chase Thomas
    "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 **

    There is just no money to spend on any decent free agents, unless we don't re-sign some of our own players.

      Probably not going to sign Blackburn AND hopefully Kiwi moves back to DE and takes Justin "I want to make love to RGIII" Tuck's spot.

              The guy got wrecked in the running and passing game all year. Strong chance Burfict moves inside for them in the future and takes his job.

                  we do. jwill and river are both starting caliber lb's and kiwis been a starter...we do need a 3 down mike tho imo unless the giants plan on using jwill or rivers as the mike on 3rd down pass situations which is very possible.

                    kiwi is a DE really and the other two would be 2nd string guys on most other teams. lets not be homers and realize we need upgrades to get off the field on 3rd downs.

                    We have so many needs we could draft just about any position first round.

                        It seems like the actual cap situation isn't going to allow the Giants to do much in FA to fix our LB corps. Its mind-boggling knowing we don't have 2/3 starters and that Kiwi isn't a " true " LB at all.

                          I thought that too, and would be happy with him,,but arthur brown does it all and just needs to get a little bigger if possible, I really like his potential in this D.

                            In a pipe dream, I'd love to see this happen:

                            Move Kiwi back to DE

                            Pick up Phillip Wheeler in FA. He's an OLB that can cover sideline to sideline. From what I read, he should come relatively cheap.

                            Draft:
                            - Alec Ogletree- OLB/ILB (1st)
                            - Sylvester Williams- DT (2nd/3rd)
                            - Nico Johnson- OLB (3rd/4th)

                            On paper, this would provide immediate upgrades at all 3 LB positions, and would add the necessary speed to help us defend the NFC East offenses. Sylvester Williams is a mammoth of a man, and could have an immediate impact on run defense.

                            I'd be stoked.
                            NFL Draft (Realistic Hope):

                            Rd 1
                            Garrett Bolles - OT
                            David Njoku - TE
                            Zach Cunningham - OLB

                              Would not mind it at all but as long as it is in the 2nd round
