Poyer in the 1st? Im not sure about that. I think he could slip to us in the 2nd, although it does seem like his stock is climbing. Milliner is the obvious pick if he is there. after that Id say Rhodes.
I hope we dont go CB at #1 though. We can patch work some FA CBs for next year with CWeb, Prince, Hosley. Will T2 come back for a one year deal? We need to revamp our pass rush which would help the DBs out big time.
If you dig up the dirt in Oakland, you will find Giant bones
1-Aaron Donald DT Pitt
2-Kareem Martin DE UNC
3-Stanley Jean-Baptiste CB Neb
4-C.J. Fiedorowicz TE Iowa
5-Bryan Stork C FSU
5-Chris Watt G ND
6-Jeff Janis WR SV
From what I've seen on tape, he has good range and decent speed but otherwise is fairly raw. So yeah, not sure why he'd be a top 5 pick (unless it's based on strength of competition, which a lot of pre-combine stuff is).
Rhodes seems to fit the mold in regards to CB that the giants look for. I like that he appears to be pretty physical,,needs to wrap up better but is not afraid to stick his head in there,,,I like him.
Every year we talk about "Giant type" players. To me, Rhodes is 1 of the guys atop that list.
I'd be very content grabbing one of Leon McFadden, Jamar Taylor, or Darius Slay in the 3rd or if we get real lucky, 4th rd as well... Taylor is physical, can man up, or play zone, and supports the run.. So for that, he kinda reminds me of a giants type pick as well...
