    He did mention both lines.

      I'd be highly surprised if DE isn't one of our first two picks.

      While I wish they would invest in the oline LBers a little more (our two softest areas currently imo) Reese doesn't have a history of prioritizing either of those positions. Hopefully one of those is the other of our first two picks.
      I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

        It does make our draft an adventure

          I don't think Reese is all that hard to figure out ... at least in what he's targeting position wise.

          The exact player is a different story.

            The OL is far from being the OL of 2008, but they where better last year than the year before. Having Nicks hurt all year, losing Manningham, and having Eli not play as well as the year before hurt the offense last year. If they stay healthy and Eli gets back on track this year they are capable of being very good on offense. The defense is in need of players.

              I just couldn't understand the blue jersey thread
              but you might get there by paying too much money to a few players and not have enough for the rest of the team and have to cut them,I know its the nature of the business but it is one way to get into cap hell...

                Quick quiz, to everyone who thinks Reese has made DE a priority since he took over... How many DEs has he drafted?

                For comparison, he has drafted 8 LBs.

                  My guess is two. JPP and Adrian Tracy.

                    Think it was 2 or 3? JPP, Tracy (though I think he was a LB), and there was that one guy in 2008 whose name eludes me.

                    If anything, Reese loves the WR position more than anything else.

                      Tracy was drafted to play LB.

                        WR and CB.


                        Would take a long time, but could use that trade value chart and go through every pick the giants made by position and add them up, and give what the giants have spent value wise on each position.

                          I kind of always knew he would end up at de. Is the right answer 1 than?

                            He also drafted Robert Henderson at the end of the 6th round in 2008.

                            2008 also was the only draft Reese has had so far that he did not draft at least one OL in it.

                              Reese has drafted the same amount of QBs and DEs during his time as GM also. One of the DEs was a 1st round selection but it goes to show you how ridiculous the whole "The Giants love to draft multiple DEs" myth is.

                                Right. I forgot about him. I used to be really good with that kind of stuff...
