Thread: I Say We Trade Down In The Draft

  1. #1

    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.

    @Giantsfan27: I heard the Giants were actually trying to trade down last year which is why they used the entire clock before selecting Wilson.

    This is correct and was confirmed by Reese last year in his Post Draft presser. He alluded to listening to deals that gave us the "mother load". If the Giants use most of the clock again this year, it's safe to speculate that the same thing is happening once more.

    I don't know....most teams use the entire time to see if anyone wants to make an offer.
