    GIANTS HOSTING ASU CORNERBACK OMAR BOLDEN FOR A PRE-DRAFT VISIT

    GIANTS HOSTING ASU CORNERBACK OMAR BOLDEN FOR A PRE-DRAFT VISIT

    "According to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post, The New York
    Giants
    will host Arizona State University cornerback Omar
    Bolden
    for a pre draft visit.


    Bolden missed all of 2011 with a torn ACL that he suffered in the
    spring.




    Despite his injury, he has shown that he has the physical tools needed to
    succeed at the NFL level. He
    has some flexibility to his game and can line up in the slot as well as on the
    outside, and he also plays special teams exceptionally.




    The Giants like players who are flexible and contribute on special teams and
    his injury may make him an affordable commodity on draft day, something Jerry
    Reese has done before (see Thomas, Terrell).




    After losing Aaron Ross, expect the Giants to look to bolster the depth at
    the cornerback position behind their top 3 players in Corey
    Webster
    , Terrell
    Thomas
    , and Prince
    Amukamara
    ."

    I'm not surprised we are looking at CB. It also doesn't surprise me that the one we are looking at tore his ACL -_-

    They call players in all the time. We just don't hear about it most of the time.

    ACL issues are a prerequisite lol

    All this means is that we will NOT draft Bolden. Giants never draft players they bring in for a visit.

    This is normal for the Giants ... looking for first round talent in the 3rd round.

    However his lack of size (5'10), our current pool of CBs and the depth of talent between the 2nd and 4th rounds in this draft make it highly unlikely (in my mind) that we go this direction.

    I wonder how many of these media released workouts are red herrrings?
    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)

    took the words out of my mouth.




    Jerry loves his players with rebuilt knees.

    No one remembers who came in second.

    Actually the giants quite often draft players they bring in. They brought JPP in for instance.

    Bolden is shorter, but he is 202 pounds, thickly built and very physical.
