Thread: WON'T take a TE

  1. #1

    WON'T take a TE

    I see a lot of the fans mocks on here with us taking a tight end. I don't think so. Coughlin has NEVER been a big TE guy in the passing game, it's not their offense, so why use a 1st rdr on it? They need a good blocker and capable pass catcher. Since Shockey they've won two Super Bowls that way. Why do it differently now? (the injuries are not a reason) They like Hopkins, and can take a TE in the later rounds. I'd trade out of the 32nd pick, get an additional pick/two and let Reese and his staff work their customary magic to the other areas of need. or to bolster a position of strength with added depth. thoughts? btw, it's 2 1/2 weeks since the bowl and I'm already excited for the Thursday nighter and the premiere of America's Game. What is wrong with me?!?!

    Well if you subscribe to the BPA mentality, the BPA when we pick (barring someone who drops like Prince did last year) will be a Tight End.

    We need a tight end (or two).

    We have never had a threatening Tight End in the modern era (even Shockey wasn't of this mold).

    We have tried to approach an offense that utilizes the TE more (ala Beckum) but haven't found one that could stay on the field. If we had one, we'd use him more (ala Ballard getting more attempts as he proved capable this year).

    The 32nd pick just isn't worth that much by draft standards if your idea is to get more quality picks somewhere in the 2nd-4th rounds.

    And when's the last time we've traded out of the first round at draft day?
    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)

    [/quote]If that is the best player on the Giants board.

    No one can say for sure if Allen, Charles, and Fleener will be available, and if they are, where they stack up on the Giants draft board.

    Idk...With the success the Giants have had this year with their emerging receivers, a quality TE can be a very viable weapon on this offense. Not sure what's going to happen with Mario but with teams having to worry about Nicks and Cruz, a stud TE could do wonders. Ballard had big success last season, imagine what an upgrade could add.

    I'm not saying they WILL take a TE early cause Jerry's been having success in later rounds and through UDFA's but....I don't think it would be such a bad idea.

    You are not correct, sir. The 32nd pick is worth about 4 year 6 million dollars in regard to the contract. That is a LOT to pay to a TE who has proven nothing in the NFL.

    Really? If we could land a great TE, though unproven, you wouldn't take him.




    C'mon... if it weren't for Gronk & Hernandez I don't think NE makes the SB. And look what Graham did to us in NO.




    TE at 32, if it's the right TE, is a no brainer!

    Re: WON'T take a TE



    What is it about Best Player Available that people don't understand?




    were picking dead last, the best OT/ILB/S/CB/WR/OL/RB/OLB are going to be gone by 32 the way the mocks looks it seems that the only untocuhed position by 32 might be TE. and if thats the case then BPA TE.




    Now we don't know if some team *cough deadskins cough* reach for tannehill, also CB's/S might go off the board in the first round due to the evolving of the passing game. their is a slight chance that ILB /OLB BPA might be there. But there are alot of factors involved there.

    I think its a no-brainer that the Giants will take a TE early in this coming draft, maybe not in round 1 but definitely early because they have no choice unless we think Pascoe can be the starter for receiving and blocking at that position....
