OK, so i woke up really, really early today and I have the day off. So,
as I sat worthlessly on the couch watching Rescue Me on NetFlix, I
decided to do some "scouting" on what I think the Giants need in the
upcoming draft (I know I'm a loser).
I mad two lists. The first list is what I think the Giants biggest are,
in order, by position. The second list is how I hope the draft pans
out. I made the list with the notion that we will not resign Rocky

I really think our biggest needs are OL and LB's. I think we need at
least 1 Tackle and 1 OG, and 1 OLB and 1 ILB. I'm not sold on either
unit, and I wouldn't be upset if we even drafted two OT's and 1 OG.
I also think we seriously need to consider our D-Line (crazy to think
that with the line we have). But Rocky Bernard is likely to move on and
the three DT's we have in rotation are injury prone. Also, we'll be
losing Osi and I think we need to start having consistency in the middle
to keep the DE's free.
We need a 3rd WR, and I think we need to address the return game. This
kid T.Y Hilton is going to be a steal if we can get him in the 4th.
Lightning fast, great hands and is tough.....willing to block. If we
get him I'll be thrilled.
CB always seems to be an issue, and we only have 3 "proven" CB's (that's
if you consider Prince proven). TT is running on his last legs, and we
Again, our LB's need to be addressed. We're thin and the guys we have
on the outside, while decent, are also injury prone. We need to add
depth with quality players.
Our line gets no push in
the interior. While it'd be nice to address it earlier in the draft, I
think there are other needs more pressing and with what we have, I
think we can manage another year. That said, it's always good to have
depth and possible diamond in the rough.
While most rounds should be BPA, 7th, to me, is just a given you go for
best overall athletic ability/potential. We may want to try and find a
gem at DE to replace Osi. This kid from UNC is said to have been first
round talent, but blew his knee up last year. Might be worht a shot.
