It's not a reach, it was a solid pick.
I would have loved Upshaw or Cordy Glenn or Jonathan Martin, but Wilson is a good RB, he'll help Eli and Bradshaw.
To show the fallacy of this point. Cordy Glenn was ranked 25th by Mayock, he's still on the board. Stephen Hill was ranked 32nd. He's still on the board. Vinny Curry was ranked 30th (not that we need another D-lineman) and is still available.
We had the 32nd pick, and we used it on a guy ranked 33rd by an extremely respected draft expert.
So I think that this shows, using Mayock's ratings, the GIANTS did not reach on Wilson. He was picked where he was rated. he was not rated as a 3rd rounder. He was the 33rd ranked guy.
But he was also not a value nor solid pick.
According to who?
Correct me if I am wrong, but I do not believe that you are a paid analyst on a major sports network, or an active GM of a Pro Football team.
If you are, please correct me. Even if you are, I still will take MAyock's ratings and Reese's track record on this pick right now.
Thats my whole point. Mayock had other players who were available rated higher. So you're trying to disagree with me, while actually agreeing with me.
But, how do you know a series of coin flips didn't separate those players? You act like the difference between Wilson and the guys available were huge. Honestly, not a lot usually separates the 25th ranked guy and the 33rd on someone's board.
Also, BPA as a JR draft strategy is a myth.
