    It's close and some really good ones, but I'll be voting for this:

    1984: LB Carl Banks, G Williams Roberts, QB Jeff Hostetler, LB Gary Reasons, WR Lionel Manuel

    That's 2 everyday LB's who were on the team for a while, and the same with Roberts who was very good at G for a long time. Manuel was a decent WR and of course the Giants never would have won SB 25 without Hostetler.

    I don't know enough to evaluate the pre-'80's draft classes as I started following football around '81. Lot of good ones there and you could even make the case for '81 just because of LT alone.

      The 2007 class produced 7 players that all played and contributed as rookies to winning a SB. It may not have produced any superstars, but as good as it gets as a group.

        I was about to say, the 07 class had a big impact but was short lived. Only one we resigned was Bradshaw and even then we.cut him a year later. Actually, I guess Deossie is still here as well, bit is strictly a long snapper.
        WE ALREADY HAVE A GREAT RUNNING BACK:

              I will take the 2004 class. Franchise QB trumps everything. Snee, Wilson, Ward and Torbor came out of that class as well.

                1981. Why? Because we drafted the greatest football player of all time. Lawrence Taylor.

                  Ill go with 1981....Taylor alone makes it...BUt you also got Billy Ard who started for several years on the line and Byron Hunt....who would have started on most teams who didnt have Banks and Taylor

                    I'm surprised they put Rivers in the 2004 class.

                      Well, we did technically draft Rivers.

                      I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                        I realize that..but how can we include him if he never played a down for the NYG?
