The game is changing with these mobile QBs. Unless the Giants plan on employing a 4 DE, 7DB scheme we need to upgrade the speed in our LB core. The days of the lumbering Kiwi or Chase are (hopefully) over. I would flip if Teo somehow falls to 19. I do think he will still be there after the top 10 so its not inconcievable to think the Giants could jump up a few spots to snatch him.

2-Shane Skov LB Stanford / Travis Swanson C Ark
3-Louchiez Purifoy CB Florida / Brandon Coleman WR Rutgers
4-Bryan Stork C Florida St / Stanley Jean-Baptiste CB Nebraska
5-DeVonte Parker WR Louisville / Chris Watt G ND
6-Kareem Martin DE UNC / Jerome Smith RB Syracuse
By this time I give up in trying to figure out how Reese mind works but lets not kid our selfs we have a glaring hole in the middle of the D for years. I don't question JR work because he is a proven GM that has struck gold much more than stikeouts but just for once I would love to see a NEED such like MLB taken care of. My kid ? Ogletree. He is a stud MLB, nobody matches his intensity and is a true dog on the field of play. A all around athlete, was a starter on the basketball team and run the 400 yard dash, the 4 x 100 relay and long jump In high school. Sounds like a Reese kind of player. Aside of all the needs on OL, CB, DL I think for heaven sake JR has to adress once and for all the NEED at MLB. No more excuses, heck there's no excuses left in my opinion.
There were issues with the D-line, no doubt. There was a lot of game planning by teams to negate the rush. Injuries also hurt the middle of our D-line (defending the run). I agree a monster MLB would take pressure off the D-line. Ogletree is the guy for the job, but I don't see him dropping to 19. Not sure Teo is NFL monster material . I'd like to see his workouts/combine results. We need a player, not another feel good story. If Herz was the man, I think it would have shown by now.
id consider our draft a complete success if we can get 2 of the 3 OL declaring for this draft from bama. like at 19 or we trade up or something for that G warwick is it? then in rd 2 that T they have thats nasty but not rated as high...ok dream over lol that be sick tho. i wonder why no teams ever try and keep dominant tandems/groupings of OL for a particular school that declare for the draft the same season...ya know like why wouldnt a team do whatever it would take to ensure u get all 3 of the 'bama OL declaring for this draft? Ud have ur OL being a core for 2 yrs already in college and now they have 10 yrs together on the same team...
