^^ haroonie-- The FO thinks differently than fans how? The giants have drafted qbs during eli's reign before, why? Please explain what makes you think this time it's different? Brees is 34 Brady will be 36, Eli at 32 has a few years before we can start looking for a successor, not replacement but successor. in regards to his contract, the Ravens rewarded flacco with a lucrative deal,what makes you think the giants won't if Eli wins another SB and shows no signs of slowing down? Also what makes you think that Eli won't take a pay cut like Brady? Sorry to shatter your dreams but Eli isn't going anywhere.
Giants draft = B

I agree with Roosevelt. Strange to pick a QB with the 4th pick and have your GM say I hope he never plays? We could have picked a player ( LB or CB ) that could have helped this year with the 4th pick! QB could have waited another few years. All the experts seem to agree that Pugh was a reach! Even the ones that like him as a player still think it was a reach. No LB or CB not good. Going to be a major problem again this year. Can Webster and Ross still play, and the jury is still out on the prince! C-

Solid B: we had Needs at all positions except Nassib AND he was the BPA at the time of his selection...at this point it is safe to say that this was a typical Reese Draft.
(I'm loving more O-Linemen, D-Tackle and D-End especially)
Nassib is either a possible encumbent or next year's trade bait...

None of the guys we picked were guys I hated. Generally, I go into drafts knowing who I like, and who I don't like and my hope is that we don't draft the guys I dislike. I would not have guessed Pugh would got to us at 19, but I don't hate it. It is growing on me.
The Hankins pick is fine with me even if it was a bit of a surprise. I see him as a Linval type player, a big zero tech and I don't see he and Lival on the field together much. Which leads me to believe the front office thinks resigning Joseph next year is going to be difficult.
I like the Nassib pick, unlike many here. We Giant fans are spoiled by Eli's durability. But, his ability to stay healthy isn't a given, especially as he ages. So having a capable backup for the future, a guy who can actually win a game or 2 if needed is huge. I think a lot of the posters on these boards are young, because I only have to mention the 1990 season to us older fans to back up my claim of the importance of having a cpable backup.
I know very little about the RB we took( I am not mentioning his name for a reason hehe) because there is not much footage or info out there on this kid.
I love the Moore pick.
Cooper is interesting and clearly the league is changing and teams are playing with hybrid type players to help stop the TE dominance we have seen areise in recent years.
I guess the biggest concern I have is that 3 of our draftees have potential risks that complicate them.
Moore has the dedication knock on him after a combine that had people questioning his commitment.
Hankins has had trouble with his weight
and Cooper has a serious health issue in his past.
All 3 of those could be nothing, but who knows.
