Also, there are a lot of guys saying Pugh would have been there in the second round. That's not a good assumption when you're at the 17th pick of round two. I think the Giants did what they had to to insure they got their guy, no complaints here at all.
I give it a C we needed a linebacker in the second. I like the Pugh pick because of the aging line. I domt like the second round pick at all. We should have gotten Brown and of course will watch another rookie linebacker flourish in the nfl. While our second round pick rotates and contributes some.
But this year, I think Reese has had a subpar draft, plain and simple. He is the GM, and thats what Mara pays him to do. That does not mean that I have to like every move that Reese makes. But you seem to like to stir the pot some, and thats ok. Each of us our entitled to our opinions, and thats what message boards are for. I have agreed with some of your posts/points in the past, and there have been other times where I did not. Neither my opinion nor yours is the only one. People react differently, and I have seen other posters who are not happy with Reese and the draft this year. But he has also made some good moves over the past few years---it balances out I guess.

Very nice draft. They already have the talent to win and this draft seems like solid replacements for on or two years down the line. They probably hope Pugh can make it at center pretty quick; if not, Snee might only have one or two solid years left at guard. They know from our recent Super Bowl teams that the D Line is the key to making the rest of the defense better than it is.
Solid "B". Filled the trenches the first 3 rounds. Got a potential 1st or 2nd round QB in round 4. Got a guy in round 5 who at the least will solidify special teams. Bottom line, the team is better going into week 1 this year than it was at week 16 last year.
Thought I read that the Bears were gonna take Pugh at 20, so Giants couldn't really trade down and get him
