    What They're Saying: Cooper Taylor

    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/gia...-cooper-taylor

    Excerpt: "We're taking a little closer look at each draft pick and what the Giants' brass is saying about the newcomers.

    Fifth-round pick: S Cooper Taylor, Richmond

    Here's our rapid reaction on Taylor and what the Giants' brass is saying about him:

    Marc Ross: Just at that point in the draft we think we got a hidden gem there. This guy is big, fast, smart, plays the game the right way. He does a lot of things for Richmond. They line him up at multiple positions. You’ll see him in the box; you’ll see him back deep. He covers the slot. Productive there. He transferred from Georgia Tech, but we think this guy has got a lot of upside. Sent our (safeties) coach (Dave) Merritt down there to work him out-a private workout and he was really impressed by him. We had him in for a visit. The kid is really smart. Loves football, so we think he has a ton of upside.

    Tom Coughlin: Young safety who has the great, great numbers –- 6-4 plus, 228. Really good test score –- 44.5 range. He had four interceptions, 78 tackles this past year. We are hoping that he is going to come in and apply all of the tools that he has right away there in the secondary for us. He is a safety by trade but you drop him down in that three-safety package or whatever you want to do... whether he plays an outside backer or whatever. That is all going to have to be determined when we get him in here.

    Jerry Reese: Big size-speed safety that we think has a really nice upside. I can envision him honestly on special teams with that size and speed. I can envision him being that third safety in some of the three-safety looks that (defensive coordinator) Perry Fewell likes to use sometimes... (Taylor's heart condition is) nothing significant for our trainers and doctors right now. They cleared him and they don’t really have any real concerns." Read more...

    If he pans out and can cover the TE this pick could trump all other rounds for us.

    Nice size for a safety, good speed, could well be an answer for those across the middle plays we just can't seem to control. TC mentioning "oustide backer" is interesting.

    this is my thinking also, this guy Cooper may be our answer to stopping guys like Jason Witten and the other tight ends who seem to run wild all over us.....
