What you fail to realize is that you can never EVER go into the draft thinking you are going to get more than a project. If you come in looking for starters there is a more than likely chance you will fail. The goal is to get the talent you want to keep position rotation fresh and salary cap down. It was time for this pick, regardless if you think it was a stupid move cause we could have had a perennial all pro LB in the 4-7th rounds. Get real, most anything that falls back here is a project anyways. I trust Reese a lot more than I trust you. Unlike yourselves and the fix it right now with a 4th round LB/CB, whatever, he has a plan that is likely longer than just this year and next. This reply applies to all the haters.
I am done---I thought things were looking a little more positive with the drafting of Moore in rd 3. Then our "wonderful, oh so smart" GM goes out and drafts a QB in the 4th rd, while our LBs and CBS have not seen any attention in the draft? And to top it off, not only did he draft Nassib, but he traded up to do so? So now the Giants are without a 6th rd pick this season.
Hell, Reese, why dont you draft a K, P or WR in the 5th rd, and ignore our defense again? What a garbage draft! What is with this, infatuation with Syracuse University this season? I had this strange feeling after our 1st rd reach of Pugh. This 2013 draft is turning out to be one of Reese's worst drafts since he has been GM.
Someone ought to give him a drug test, and see if he has been partaking in some illegal narcotics. Maybe he is getting early onset of alzheimers or dimensia? Maybe the real Reese has been kidnapped---someone get a DNA test on this imposter.
Well here comes another mediocre 8-8 or 9-7 season again! Yippy!!!!!! I guess the Giants dont want to change with the times---you have teams like the Skins, 49ers and Seahawks running these read option and pistol offenses. And you think Reese would see that, so he could bring in the proper players to match up with those schemes.
So now you are going to have a reach in the 1st rd at 19 sitting on the bench this coming season, not contributing, unless there are a rash of injuries on the o-line. Then you have a 2 down DT that will be in the rotation some, but has weight and conditioning issues. And now you will have a potential starting QB sitting on the bench for a few years at least, until Eli retires. Plus you have not addressed the CB position or LB position---I guess they have more confidence in toaster Webster and under achieving Ross to play opposite of Prince. Then at LB you have injury prone Rivers and Connor in the starting roles.
Wow---what to look forward to in 2013---LOL!!! There are some teams that are making great moves in the offseason---not just in FA but the draft. I know the Giants had some cap issues and made some bargain deals, but they have had a sub-par draft. Very disappointing!

Love you armchair GMs. How many Superbowls have you won?
There are a lot of armchair gms on this board that would make outstanding scouts.
