    Freak athletes?

    Who are some players the Giants are projected to go after with our 1st round pick that folks would consider "freak athletes?" With our BPA mentality, is there a freak we may go after that could surprise us b/c it's not a need.

    The only person I can think of from an intangible standpoint is the WR from Georgia Tech. He's tall, can leap and is very fast.

    Any thoughts?

    Gotcha. Yea, I didn't know much about Hill, just read about his bio/stats.

    What about other positions? Is there a pass rusher that would be too hard to pass up? A DB, or LB? I don't believe there's a RB that stands out at 32, but maybe an OT?

    There isnt anyone in that freak athletic mold at 32 in the realm of JPP.

    But Nicks wasent an "athletic freak" either.

    Amini Silatolu and Kelechi Osemele (both OG/OTs) are freakish in size and athletic ability at that size. I could see the Giants taking either of those guys.

    Besides Dontari Poe, no one else in this draft strikes me as a physical freak (plenty of great athletes though).

    Keep in mind that we consider JPP a physical freak but his measurables weren't off the charts at the Combine (beaten by a lot of other guys in all phases except phone-recorded back flips).
    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)

    Heywad Bey made great strides the second half of last year. Look for him to have a big year next year. I think some WRs have to learn how to use their speed to their advantage. Hill may be this same type of player. I prefer Kendall Right to Hill. Right is the most NFL ready receiver in the draft and we can win now.

    In the tough times we find out who we are.

    Bey actually looked pretty good this year. And there we rumors the giants were highly interested in drafting him.

    Saying the rumors were true, the difference is we were planning on drafting him at the bottom of the first, not the top.
