You call Pugh a reach (and so do I) but he's not a desperation pick. And there were A LOT of those so far this draft (Kyle Long in the first LAWLAWLAWL!).
And the first time Wilson breaks a 60 yard TD run through the right side, remember this conversation. Because I think there's going to be a lot of them.

And both had much more upside than Ansah at the time. That's not to say Ansah (or any pick) won't turn out to be a great player in the NFL. But the Ansah pick was pure desperation in trying to turn Combine hype into something more than we've seen on film.
Having said that, Lining him up next to Suh should be fun to watch.
The point being that this draft doesn't have the perceived eye-popping talent of some past drafts, so instead of trying to make a dragon out of smoke, the Giants got the guy they really wanted.
He's a more complete prospect than Fluker, a better pass blocker, but without the girth for the run game. The way o line was getting snatched up they couldn't wait to pull the trigger. Also, I like Floyd as much as anybody, he's a special talent, but there's a reason he fell, NFL teams clearly saw or know something we don't.
Football has been very, very good to us.
In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-
# of Super Bowl victories since 1985:
1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
4-New York Giants!!!!!

Damontre Moore, Alex Okafor, Tank Carradine, Margus Hunt ... all of these guys had first round grades at some point or another after the 2012 NCAA season.
Tons of talent left on the boards at DE.
U act like the guy didn't produce.. He produced all around, and not just sacks.. Jason pierre paul also only had 6 sacks....Not far off of Ansah's..
