Combine that with our less than desirable safety situation and I'm getting a little worried. I'm shocked they didn't pay more attention to both positions. I guess we'll just have to hope someone comes through in the UDFA pool or a guy like Jake Muasau steps up.
Let's just see how training camp goes etc. I really like Cooper after seeing some film on him. Gotta admit i didn't know anything about him. But his measurables are similar to Arthur Brown who people really liked at MLB why cant this kid potentially become a LB?
My sliding mock: (mid round pick)
1-Cyril Richardson G Baylor / CJ Mosely LB Bama
2-Shane Skov LB Stanford / Travis Swanson C Ark
3-Louchiez Purifoy CB Florida / Brandon Coleman WR Rutgers
4-Bryan Stork C Florida St / Stanley Jean-Baptiste CB Nebraska
5-DeVonte Parker WR Louisville / Chris Watt G ND
6-Kareem Martin DE UNC / Jerome Smith RB Syracuse
Yeah i agree definitely who knows whats going to happen with the LB position. Obviously its a position that the giants feel is a "coach em up" position. Reese has taken LB's in earlier rounds in previous drafts and they haven't panned out. Yeah he's lighter than Brown doesn't mean he can't pack on a few although 15lbs is a lot to gain in 4 months. Dropping him in during the 3 safety set closer too the box could be interesting.
Just curious what were your thoughts on Kiko Alonso? He is much much closer to Cooper height wise and about 10lbs heavier and a little slower.
I also woulnd't mind seeing Moore at the Sam in obvious passing downs. Or maybe for good. Didn't he play Some outside backer at A&M? Moore,JPP,Jenkins,Joseph,Kiwi should give O'line fits

There are still some FAs out there. Think we may be surprised by an addition or two....
