    Adrian Tracy was a high profile guy???[/quote]

    The others werent? Giants bring in players they draft quite frequently, that part is clear.

    Whether guys are "high profile" or not is a pointless exercise. That depends on how closely you follow the draft.

    A popular belief, but the giants dont play those type of games

    I remember this was the general, overall feel when they brought in JPP for a visit. Nearly everyone thought it was a smoke screen and JR being a "genius" through some odd idea of manipulation and mind games. Turns out, they actually liked him lol

    I like Hightower and a lot of people said the same thing about scheme with Rolando McClain (Also from bama) and he is doing just fine as a 4-3 MLB for Oakland. I think Hightower can play MLB and to those who say he's slow, to me he doesn't look slow he looks controlled. he doesn't take unnecessary steps and is a subtle scraper who takes good angles. I rarely see him take a bad angle.

    [quote user="slipknottin"][quote user="Drez"]Here's the question, though, when was the last time we drafted a higher profile player that came for a pre-draft visist?

    JPP, Jernigan, Sintim, Barden, Tracy, Beckum, Im sure there are more.[/quote]
    Hmm. For whatever reason I was under the assumption that we normally didn't draft guys we brought in for visits. Guess I was very, very wrong. Thanks for dispelling that misbelief.

    I dont think Hightower is slow, but he is a very linear player. Change of direction is not his strong suit.

    the draft is a holiday to me, so i guess you could say i follow it pretty close, and a 6th rd pick i would not consider "high profile"

    Ignore Tracy then. JPP, Jernigan, Sintim, Barden, etc.

    bingo! his change of direction is terrible, I felt bad for him at the combine. he isn't slow, but I prefer a faster more athletic linebacker in a 4-3. He would be a perfect 3-4 ILB. I bet the Steelers draft him

    I'd actually be surprised if he's still there at 32
