Meh, I think the Giants are going to take their chances on Blackburn and Rivers again instead of a Day 1 LBer but who knows.
Robert Lester out of Alabama is a senior. Although not sure if he will go to early on the Board before we pick. Not sure where he stands in Mock drafts..
Just checked and he must be WAY down draft boards for some reason. Didnt see him through first 4 rounds of some mock drafts. He seemed like a solid LB on a champion defense
One Mock I looked at had us taking Tao. http://www.nfl.com/draft/2013/mock-d...ail.comAnother had us taking Jordan
DE/Pass Rusher, and CB are the most important positions we should address.
Unless Warmack is on the board. I know most people wouldn't be stoked with a Guard in the first, but we need maulers on the OL and it'd be nice to get the dependence of the offense off of the skill position players who might get too pricey in the rapidly approaching future.
Off subject.. i realize this a a LB thread. but By the way they are projecting Barrett Jones (who I've watched for 4 yrs at Alabama) which I feel will be an excellent pro in second round. He won 3 Titles with Alabama at 3 different OLine positions. We could use a guy like this
I think we should go Oline in the 2nd round
I'm sick of these project tackles/turned guards/turned tackles again that leave us WITH NO ONE! The more solid guys we can get on the OL, the better we will be moving forward. If we do decide to go the heavy (pardon the pun) route of offensive lineman, it'll be a testament to how we approach the looming contract situations of Cruz and Nicks.
With either offensive dynamic, whether the focus lies heavily on the OL or the skill position players, I'm confident that we can be very successful. We've won with both formulas in the past.
