Because you all desperately want to know my opinion on the draft ... scroll to the bottom for the summary if you don't want to read a lot.
1) Justin Pugh (OT) - This was a solid pick. Forgetting his draft projection for a moment (2nd round prospect) he was probably the last OT in the top tier, THE best 5 position OL in the draft and most definitely wouldn't have survived either the Bears or Cowboys picking right after us, both of whom reached much further back for their picks. He's an immediate upgrade and potential day 1 starter at RT and with this move, Jerry Reese locks up the OTs for the rest of Eli's career.
2) Jonathan Hankins (DT) - We all thought that we bought a year with the addition of Jenkins and Patterson and the re-signing of Rogers to the DL but apparently the Giants wanted to put an exclamation point on the DL this year. This move also has the added benefit of serving notice to Marvin Austin that he better get his butt in gear (and insurance if he doesn't). The player himself is a playmaker when rested and the Giants now have the depth to have a really nice DT rotation in place for the 2013 season. The downside is if he gets trapped on the field in a no-huddle scenario, he can wear down and disappear pretty quickly. There's also a question as to how he'll handle TC's coaching style. While I understand the pick, I'm not a fan of it. Especially when I saw Arthur Brown and Jon Bostic still on the boards when we picked here.
3) Damontre Moore (DE) - Big value pick as Moore was mocked in the first round almost through the entire draft building process. One of the few speed rushers in this draft, it's very easy to see why the Giants picked him up. Look at Moore and think "Osi-lite". However I'm not a fan of this pick. I think there was more value to be had with Okafor (who I think is a better DE overall) and Moore's shortcomings are against the run, already a weak point for us. He could end up being a good pass rusher for us ... my fear is that we'll stick 15-20 pounds on his 250 lb. frame and he'll disappear.
4) Ryan Nassib (QB) - This was the huge head-scratcher of the draft ... not only for Giants fans but football fans in general. To Jerry Reese's credit, we drafted a huge value here, getting a potential first round QB (originally linked to the Bills in the first round) in the fourth round. Realistically we traded up and drafted trade-bait and the clipboard holder for the next few years since our franchise QB who is in his prime has yet to miss a regular season game in his career. You can't argue against the insurance logic as law of averages says that Eli has to get hurt sooner or later but all I saw with this pick was Shamarko Thomas (S), Khaseem Greene (LB), Barret Jones (C/OG) ... all of whom would have been value picks, all of whom would have helped immediately with the Giants (either as depth or as starting competition) and all of whom were on the boards when we picked Nassib.
5) Cooper Taylor (S) - Really strange pick here ... a 6'5" (!), 230 lb Safety with mediocre speed, injury history and a heart condition. One assumes that he'll be translated into a LBer. When watching him on the field, he does catch the eye ... very aggressive sort of player who closes VERY fast on the ball (great burst). I don't really know what to make of this pick other than keep an eye out for him (but hey, 5th round is 5th round).
I won't bother with the 7th round picks other than to say we got an OG (Eric Herman) which we need depth at and a RB (Michael Cox) which we don't need at all.
I will go on record here and say that I think the Giants are making a mistake by ignoring the LBer position as much as they have been. We've already seen the results of bad LBer play (gave 6k+ yards in 2012) and we've seen the results of good LBer play (both the Ravens and 49ers showcased why LBers are an integral part of your defense ... even in todays NFL).
Summary: Not a fan of this draft. Love our first pick and I'm "ok" with our third pick. So from an untested standpoint, I give this draft a C- (not a D because of the value angle ... even if it was value we didn't need).
