Patience with Herz, MLB is a hard position to play.. I think he can get the job done.
We need to bite the bullet and draft an early LB. Ogletree!
I've said it in other threads but Herzlich is the second coming of Blackburn, athletically. Ultimately he is 4 years fresher than Blackburn but lacks the experience in comparison. He could be just as good of a starter as Blackburn but needs to see the field.
Despite that, giants need to upgrade.
The argument that he once had it so he will get it back is just nonsense. That's like saying if ray Lewis gives it time he can go back into being the 22 year old force he once was. It just doesn't work that way.
If herzlich now looked far more athletic than he did at the senior bowl or combine maybe you would have an argument. But he looks exactly the same. That was two years ago now.
Very simply, he doesn't appear to have fully recovered from the cancer that he suffered from.
He's an amazing kid, and seems to have tremendous desire, but he doesn't have the explosiveness and speed that he had his Junior year at BC when he was already projected to be a late 1st round pick.
It's really a shame. Cancer sucks.
