I'll be honest, though.....I'm probably harshing on him more than I should because I'm frustrated that Reese ignored linebacker.
If Reese had taken a linebacker in the prior 3 rounds, I'd probably have the rose-colored glasses on myself about Nassib.
But as I see it, the Giants used a 4th and a 6th to go after a position that didn't have anything close to the urgency of linebacker.
I really hope the kid catches on, learns the system, and could step in a win games whenever he is called on.....I also hope that down the road, he'll either be Manning's replacement, or else have enough trade value to get more out of him than the Giants invested.
But that doesn't help this 31st ranked defense.
"They come to the line of scrimmage and the first thing they do is start looking for me....I know, and they know. When they’d find me they’d start screaming: 56 left ! 56 left!....So there’s this thing I did. After the play was over I’d come up behind them and whisper: don’t worry where I am. I’ll tell you when I get there."

Turning your body away from contact is now a major flaw, yes let Eli take the hit straight on and get his ribs broken, lol. Some of the stuff people say are seriously just.... plain dumb.
I agree, we needed depth at LBer, CB, S, and we take a QB. It didn't make sense to me then, still doesn't now.
