    Why is this such a bad pick? The kid runs hard. He is a prototypical Giants RB.

    [quote user="BlueBlooded1979"][quote user="buddy33"]Relax. What more does he have to do to show you he can pick talent?[/quote]

    He is far from infallible. He picked Sintim, Brown, S.Woodson, Wright, Dillard, Tracy and how many late round QBs.

    RBs in the first round are for desperate teams with crap QBs. That isn't the case here and this is a wasted pick.

    He can't protect, run routes or hold on to the ball. Hill, Randle, Fleener, Still and Upshaw all had better value.

    I though SF made the worst pick of the night until this one.[/quote]

    How many bad 1st round picks has he made? I remember he made one a couple of years ago that a lot of people didn't like.

    [quote user="JacksGiant76"]But don't you get the feeling they only picked him because Martin was gone? Doesn't Cordy Glenn or Stephen Hill make a little more sense? [/quote]

    Dont get that feeling at all.

    Glenn and Hill both scare me as prospects.

    Glenn is a massive guy, completely unlike any OL the giants have drafted, and he has rather horrible technique, and Im not sure if physically he can correct it. Never going to be a knee bender.

    Hill is a guy who can run, and thats about it. Very average ball skills, cant run any routes other than the 9 route, average hands, and I question his intelligence too. Giants WRs have to be intelligent, otherwise they make constant mistakes like we saw from manningham.

    i love this pick, he has crazy breakaway speed. And his kind of determination, TC will love that.

    this is what happens when armchair GMs fall in love with prospects.

    They get their hopes crushed when Reese, a smarter man, doesn't agree with them.

    Yea, the giants as an organization have not fallen in love with anyone in recent drafts. They make their boards and they go by it, they dont say, we love this one particular player lets do everything we can to grab him.

    Sit back, take the best players as they come to you.

    This is pretty much the only decision by Reese that I've ever disliked.




    It is not a percentage play at all.

    A smarter man, yes. More intelligent, I don't think so.

    I am sorry when they were hiring GM's you must have been too intelligent for the Giants!!!

    For Pete's sake folks....stop the "Reese" stuff. Like he sits in his locked office alone and plays mock drafts and then makes the picks in a bubble. Come on.
    There is a full team and you better believe TC has...OH ,I don't know...A LITTLE INPUT!!
    Come on....
