  • No Ballard or Beckum for 2012

    With both tearing their ACLs in the Super Bowl it's more than likely they don't play in 2012.

    Does that put Dwayne Allen at the top of our draft boards?

    Dwayne Allen or Coby Fleener would look mighty fine in a Giants uniform

        Yeah I'm thinking Oline might still be more important.

        Also we'll need to draft a DE considering Osi is gone after next year.

          We tend to use TEs as blockers first and receivers second.




          Getting some hard-core passing threat TE who's below average at blocking doesn't really fit how we use a TE.




          We'll never throw 100 balls at our TE, we're better off getting someone who can block with average receiving skills.

            It has to be allen in the first. the stanford te can not block well enough for us.

              [/quote]Allen and Fleener both have the frame to become decent blockers as well.

              In fact, Dwayne Allen would often go 1-on-1 with his old buddy Da'Quan Bowers in practice on working on his blocking skills. I'm sure he would do the same here and would get good experience dealing with JPP, Osi, and Tuck.

                True but the Beckum experiment would disagree with you (at least in desire) and we still have Pascoe who is a good blocker and Hynoski who actually played a blocking TE rather well when filling in.

                  They definetly will have to look that way early in the draft.

                        well if we dont trade down and actually pick at 32, i could honestly see that stanford te being on the board and being the BPA. it would also help bc he is an EXCELLENT blocker, with great pass catching ability and good size.

                        he also has deceptive speed. i compare him to a smaller gronk.

                        i'd honestly love to get him bc he'd help our run game, and is very reliable and smart in terms of route running, and with eli he could be that 3rd down, chain moving option. in fact, thats who i want to draft now. i was high on him before now i flat out want him.

                        at 32, their isnt going to be many players worthy of the 1rst round pick and reese wont reach, so i could see him trading down. but if that te has a good shot at being there when we pick at 32, i actually believe we'd take him.

                        i doubt theirs going to be an OT worthy of 1rst round pick at 32.

                        we prob will go de/dt/lb.

                        burfect could easily be there at 32 too and he has insane measurables and would be epic with our dline.

                        we'll see, im very excited bout this offseason even tho theirs a good chance we'll lose MM and osi

                          That might have been true a few years ago, but I must say, the advances in treating and rehabing that injury have been astounding. Welker blew out his knee in the final game and was on the field on opening day. Let's hope that's the case for Beckum and Ballard.

                              I gotta go with OL in 1st rd. and TE in 2nd rd. as well. But Giants FO drafts on talent, not need, so you never know.
