    What do you guys think?
    I'm thinking we're taking a DT and a CB in the first two rounds. Depending who falls where will determine the first pick.

    We have a ton of tackle prospects (McCants, Brewer, Mosely) and our eternal safe guard in Diehl, so I'm not seeing an OT pick early. I'd expect us to grab one of the OG/OT hybrids in the 4th or 5th round.

But if a team decides to fill a G or RT hole thru the draft then you have to go after them early.
    I know both teams in the superbowl's RT's were drafted in the first rd... Davis and McKinnie... Also, Lane Johnson is the exception becasue we can play em at RT and hes great insurance if we lose Beatty down the line to switch over to LT or in case Beatty gets hurt we got someone capable, and Beatty gets hurt alot...

    Seems like half of the Mocks I have seen having us going DT in round 1, so the "experts" are on the same page.

    If Reese has a guy there at DT he really likes he'll grab him if the Grade is High.

    Reese kind of goes BPA, but we have also, in my opinion, grabbed guys high at positions of need. Hakeen Nicks and David Wilson immediately come to mind. JPP and Amukamara were picks where :the Grade was too high we couldn;t pass them up" type picks.

    Depending on what we do in FA, right now I could us grabbing from any of these slots early in the draft:
    OL - G or T
    DT
    LB

    I also think we will nab a RB, a Pass Rusher and will pick at least one Guard. We almost always pick a Guard.

    Thats a fact. Draft G and RT in later rounds and you end up with a lot of long term projets and few pan out, obviously there are exceptions but the risk/reward is huge if you miss out. That been said I love Lane and know he has played RT but I truly don't think thats his natural spot and I doubt he could excel playing there in the NFL. But if Beatty walk? I would love him to anchor the blindside of Eli for years to come.

    Personally, I feel that with the 31st ranked Defense they need to focus on that and fix the O line by signing our FAs Beatty, Booth... DT in the first round wouldn't be a bad thing, I could also see a CB or DE. Looking over the draft class there is some excellent CB value that could be picked up in the 2nd or 3rd round. Will be interesting to see how things develop. I could easily get on board with Enigma's draft....

    I'm not big on Richardson i think he is overrated... The guy I think who's stock is going to rise big time is Jesse Williams from Bama. Played a tough SEC schedule and produced for the Tide. He is able to play any technique on the DL so he is versatile. He is the hardest hitting DT in the draft according to the Bleacher Report. He is as good a run stopper as there is in this draft. Thats what the Giants needs a guy who can take on Double teams Williams can do that. And a guy who can get thru them and bring down the runner in the backfield Williams can do that. He is fast enough to play in a 4-3 defense. This guy is said to be running 4.75 40's at 325-330 lbs. He is quick off the ball he just needs some help with his pass rush. Other than that he can take on and break thru double teams, he can collapse the pocket and stuff running backs in their tracks and can play anywhere on the DL.

    Richardson vs Kentucky I uploaded it today . Larry Warford works him for most of the game




    The Bengals may release Domata Peko not a pass rusher but would improve the run defense . Probably could be had for minimal guaranteed money. I dont think the Giants like Polynesians we never draft them

    Also a really good fullback in short yardage situations
