    David Wilson is a future Giant all-time great

    and as so, Jerry Reese's name will absolutely not be associated with him (except in the minds of die-hard fans).

    Does anyone associate the legends of the NFL with their respective GM who drafted them?....rarely

I happen to like Aaron Ross, and he played nicely for us in 2 SB years, but if you look around these boards there is very little love for him.

    In 2009 he got Nicks in the 1st, and then in the third he got what appears to be a real good franchise LT, when most teams use a 1st round pick to find there LT.
    2007 was 6 years ago. Most NFL players don't make it 5 years. If your rookie class is the reason you won the Superbowl, it is automatically a great draft class. SS12 had a career ending injury. Ross, despite the crap he gets on these boards, is a good corner, and he was a beast his rookie year. Kevin Boss is the victim of concussions, but he was a solid TE. DeOsi is still on the team, and as Giants fans we cannot undermine the value of long snappers (Junkin anyone?). Reese is a great GM in that he drafts well (generally there are 2-3 guys from the years draft on the every day roster), he is amazing at finding talent from other teams practice squad (Stevie Brown and Will Hill just to name 2). Reese is one of the best GM's in all of sports, possibly even the best.

    Also talking about 3-4 linebackers here. Last time I checked, we run a 4-3.

    Lee could easily have played MLB in a 4-3

Given all the important tasks of a GM it seems like a silly question to ask. But hey, it's the offseason, so I get it!
    picking the wrong QB with a Top 5 pick can define your legacy as a GM. If u make a mistake there it an set the franchise back years

    Multiple SB titles will define his tenure.

    Lee is way too slow for the 4-3. Pierce was faster than him.
