    Giants Looking At Former SMU RB Traylon Shead Ahead Of Supplemental Draft

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...tal_draft.html

    Excerpt: "The Giants were one of nine teams on hand to check out former SMU running back Traylon Shead, according to Snead's agent, Louis Bing.

    Shead, a heralded 6-2, 240-pound recruit out of Texas, had a Pro Day workout on July 2 in advance of Friday's supplemental draft. He finished last season with the Mustangs with 197 yards and three touchdowns in four games.

    Shead was the 16th-ranked running back coming out of high school in a loaded class that included Marcus Lattimore, Giovani Bernard and Lache Seastrunk among others. He originally committed to Texas before filtering through a junior college and then to June Jones' program at SMU.

    Jones raved about Shead in the spring and expected him to be a workhorse had it not been for a pair of injuries, one of which was a gruesome horse-collar tackle." Read more...

    I'd be shocked if JR took him in Supplemental Draft.
    the "realist" is a lazy piece of crap that works on his tan while sipping a margarita,
    the pessimist changes the sails while complaining about the lazy piece of crap,
    and the optimist changes the sails while hoping the lazy piece of crap will start to do his share of the work.

    I seriously doubt it. Taking him basically means giving up a PS candidate for nothing. Plus, if he's on the roster, that means both Cox and Hillis are gone.

    Why would that be? Wouldn't they just add him to the competition in camp?

    Close or you hit the bricks

    That's part of why I can't see them taking him. If he was a UDFA I could see him as a camp body. Otherwise don't give up the draft pick.
