    My Opinion on our Needs

    Ok I feel our real "needs" are at

    1. TE
    2. OL
    3. RB
    4. LB
    5. S

    With that said, I don't feel that any of the TEs are worth the 32nd pick and I just can't see Reese selecting an OL in the first round when they can be found much later.

    Next comes RBs and outside of Richardson, no one really deserves a first round pick because they aren't very good blockers (something you NEED to play RB for the Giants)

    As far as LBs, Kuechly is the only guy I see worth the 32nd pick and that's because he'll probably be gone by the top 20. However I have a weird feeling that Reese might go after Zach Brown just because he is an athletic FREAK and has some serious upside with the right coaching.

    Safety is pretty easy; Barron or no one in the first.

    Basically barring any crazy player dropping I have this feeling that with the 32nd pick in the 2012 NFL Draft the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants select Zach Brown, LB, North Carolina.

    Re: My Opinion on our Needs

    as of right now I'm faster than all of the TEs on our active roster (2 have torn ACLs ) that is not good. at least we have some bodies at oline. What do you think will happen based on our needs and who will be there/bpa?

    spizi, I agree that the Giants top 2 needs would be OL and TE. But I also see mike backer and maybe CB being up there as well.</P>

    You have 2 starters from 2010 that are coming back from ACL surgery, in Goff and Thomas. Actually our CB position was decimated with injuries, including Bruce Johnson, Tryon, Witherspoon and Coe.</P>


    </P>


    Now who knows what will happen definitively with Diehl and McKenzie. But I can see Reese looking at a OT in the draft. And as for TE, maybe that gets addressed in FA(once we get our cap number straight). But I can see a TE drafted as well. Will it be Fleener or Allen in the late 1st rd? Or will it be the next Tier of TEs somewhere between the 3rd and 5th? </P>


    </P>


    With all of that said, I would not be surprised if Reese went Mercilus or the best available DT at 32. The strength of our D is our front 4, so I would not be shocked at all.</P>

    that's also what I was thinking. Since I can't see any of those positions worth the first round pick, I could see Reese taking a DE.
