    I Say We Trade Down In The Draft

    Jeez, we have sooooo many needs, between o-line, the whole defense across the board, and limited cap space, possible FA defections this year and next, etc.. With that in mind, I'd like to see them trade down in the first round, possibly more than once, and try to stockpile picks in rounds 2-5. Many times, those players have very little dropoff of talent, and later round players come cheaper. Plus, with more picks, you have more chances to make up for a whiff, or take a chance on a great athlete from a small school, etc.

    Anybody agree?

    I wouldn't mind at all...19 is actually prime position to do it because the teams usually reach early on for QB's etc... and people want to trade up. Also it's middle of pack and the Giants could have two or three guys still available on their projected big board who they feel they can still get by trading back.

    if you look at the giants recent history, they don't trade their picks up or down much at all. they seem to be content in letting the draft play out.

    besides, there's soooo much time left between now and the draft where we learn the most about the players, quality of this year's draft, free agency hasn't even started yet, etc. and the giants have also shown to be good at finding UDFA's to make the team like hynoski, will hill, cruz, etc. giants have excellent scouting bro.

    you're way too early with this

    Depends on who's left when our pick comes.
    I have a feeling if Lane Johnson is there we will take him at 19.

    I'd love to trade down and accumulate picks but what people don't understand is its not just up to the giants.. Obviously they have to find a team that is willing to move up and give us what we thinks fair.. Its not as easy as "we should move down"..lol

    Something i was thinking about , and hoping maybe reese would talk to MIA about is trading our 1st to Miami for there 2nd's and maybe a 5th...

    The dolphins could then secure someone at 12(maybe Fisher?) and then grab a WR at 19 like Keenan Allen? We would then have 3 2nd rders, a 3rd, and i bet we get a comp pick or 2 with OSI and KP most likely leaving as well.. We'd have tons of picks in a draft that has most underclassmen ever...

    We wouldnt get comp picks for osi and kp until next year. Additionally, we are cutting osi I believe so we don't get a comp pick for him period

    No, his contract is voided so he becomes a free agent.

    Maybe we do get comp picks for Tollefson, Manninham, Ross and Jacobs though

    Jacobs doesnt count he was cut. We lost 3 and signed 2 Bennett and Locklear. So we get 1 pick. Maybe a 5th probably a 6th
