    Hopefully, but I think he gets picked up in Round 2. He produced at Florida, and backed it up with a very god combine.

    We'll see. I hope we can get him.

    He is impressive, but Im hopeful we go LBer in 1st or 2nd (wishful thinking) and dont see Bostic as a top 50. If we dont go LB by round 3 I like the pick.

    Top 50 is really high for him. I dont even think he is Top 100.. Lets compare him as a prospect to Giants 5th round pick in 2008 Jonathan Goff. Look at their measurables, pretty similar.Both come from the SEC and it's my opinion Goff had better tape then Bostic. Inside LB's are a position that is consistently over valued before the draft.More likely then not if their not going early they drop a round or 2 from where they are getting projected.Just look at past drafts as examples.

    Seems the giants covet MLB's that play tough, physical, and defend the run, more then they do, finding guys that are really good against the pass.. They try and find football players for the positon, rather then athletic specimens, which is why i feel Ogletree might not be drafted in the 1st.. I could see a guy like AJ Klein or Kevin Red**** later on... I hope i'm wrong, but i doubt it..

    I have to admit I like Alonso; but Bostic should be there in 3rd or 4th round....

I feel that the Giants have a few capable WLB's on the roster already in Williams,Rivers,Paysinger. I think they need to invest in someone that can play between the tackles
    This.

    Arthur Brown imo is the best MLB in this draft.

    Yes. Wouldn't be surprised if he was the first non pass rush LB taken.

    If we end up skipping LB in the 1st, I'd be extremely pleased if Brown was still lingering at 49 and Reese pulls the trigger. If not Brown, hopefully Greenes there.
