Giants LBs make no splash plays.. I just would have loved to add Greene, Ogletree or Arthur Brown
And you guys can say what you want but the fact is we picked a a backup QB over a line backer that can compete to start on this team. We do have Eli Manning. I don't know what some of you are actually exited about getting Nassib, he'll obviously never see the field. Best possible solution is we trade him f for something down the line
This is not that out of the ordinary. The Patriots have Mallet, Eagles have Foles, the Redskins took Cousins in the same draft as RG3 of all things. Look what starved teams will do for qbs these days, Kevin Kolb and Matt Flynn didn't exactly go for cheap. I'm not a huge fan of the pick, but i get it. I'm not sure what everyone makes such a big deal about the first two picks. It's clear we needed someone who could play tackle, and with the huge run on offensive linemen Pugh was the best on the board with a significant drop off after him. As for Hankins, we couldn't stop the run with **** last year, is a run stuffing DT really a bad pick when you consider it as a boost to our run defense? I think this was a great draft, we improved at OL, improved our run defense as well as DE depth and much needed pass rush. Nassib could provide a ransom down the road, and then we have a massive safety who will probably move to LB and aid in coverage against big tight ends. This was a great draft, trust the process, it's better than you think.
You morons act like every linebacker that we've passed on has become pro bowlers or something. A matter a fact, most of the linebackers you guys have been high on in the last few drafts haven't amounted to much. So relax. There hasn't been a single pro bowl caliber linebacker that we have passed on in the last few drafts.
