The kid looks great on tape, but he's def on the small side and played in a horrendous division, so I think I'll pass on saying he's our answer at ILB just yet. If you think we are set on the position then you're out of your marbles.

I'm higher on Etienne Sabino was a 4-5 star prospect out of high school. Played at Ohio State, Good pass rusher, can cover and play run very well. Diesel looked ok, khaseem greene in the 4th would have been better value. I wish i could of been the Giants GM for this draft.We'd be in good shape coming into this season.
Love the Diesel tape, but this kid and Vontaze aren't really in the same boat, in terms of scouting. Vontaze was a 1st round prospect before he sabotaged himself out of the entire draft, between his character and fitness issues. Everyone knew his name going into the draft; his tape was against D1 competition.

Heh , we Giants fans are a funny lot.
We could draft the top 10 prospects in the draft, but if 1 of em isn't a linebacker but we managed to pick 1 up as a UDFA, the Giant fans would fall in love with him the most, it wouldn't even be close. If his name is something cool like "diesel" then its all she wrote.
We love our linebackers, that's for sure.
think its called being desperate :P

He only has to prove him self that he can stay healthy, otherwise he did a good job playing the MAC position down in Carolina.
There is no need to rave about these UDFA prospects, they still gotta make the team, and most of them will turnout to be special teamers only. We only need to stop the run, that will allow the pass rush to be more effective and the job of the ILB and CB's to be easier, that is why we drafted Jonathan Hankins.
Lets get real guys, a ILB from Mount Union will most likely not be the solution.
I wanted Brown before the draft too. but grabbing a massive DT goes much further to improving this team than drafting a MLB. According to JR they had a 1st round grade on Hankins so he fit the BPA tradition with Reese. Cooper is very similar to A.Brown except his is bigger and faster. I'm not saying cooper should be a full time LB but in 3 safety sets maybe they will drop him down into a MLB type role.
Oh, the only comparison i was making is that they both went undrafted. The kid may be camp fodder but i looks like he has a high motor and can get after it. lets see what he can do.
