Re: A look at the 2012 NFL draft
[quote user="BlueSanta"][quote user="nycsportzfan"]I never did my weekly mock after the JET WIN Here we go! Picking 23rd is what i got us
1 Devon Still DT Penn St- Dudes a beast with a non stop motor and great size With Canty getting older and Austin being outta football for 2yrs by the time next season rolls around i think its a good idea taking Still here for his Upside and for the fact we need one more reliable big upside DT for the rotation going forward Still has 17TFL and 4 and a Half Sacks so far
2 Travis Lewis LB Oklahoma- I love Lewis! I think hes gonna be a huge steal if he goes this late in the 2nd round Hes a ALL AROUND LB who makes plays against the run and in the pass game I see a pro bowl in his future
3 Julian miller DE W Virginia- Another player i love! Julian reminds me of a young Justin Tuck for his size and Versatility as he lines up inside at DT for the WV club as well JPP and Julian would be a fearsome DUO at End going forward Julian has 11 TFL and 6sacks to go along with 2 FF so far this yr
4 William Vlachos C Alabama- A nasty mauling C whos been blocking for 2 rugged smash mouth runners in his time at Bama(ingram and richardson) and we could use a upgrade at C and possible long term answer
5 Tashaun Gipson CB Wyoming- A nice Depth CB who really helps in Run support and has solid size/speed combonation
6 Bobby Rainey RB W Kentucky- This kid flat out was W Kent's offense and a bruising workhorse ! A nice kid to take a chance on in RD 6 At worst could be a nice change of pace back and at best u strike lighting in a bottle again(bradshaw being other)
7 Evan Rodriguez TE Temple- Good hands and Solid size Blocked for a great RB DUO at temple while also being one of there bigger threats through the Air albeit they don't air it out at temple Evan has a chance
Heh I love Still, but he seems to me to be gone before we pick? He would be a perfect fit for us because I dont know if anyone gets more up-the-middle push than he does. I would feel bad for poor QBs who had to step up into the pocket because of Tuck, JPP, Osi only to find Still in your face. The big difference between the now Giants and the 2007 Giants is we dont have that Fred Robbins pocket crumbler. Still will blow up any pocket.
I know we have talked about Lewis. I would love him here. Giants like versatility in LBs. OKlahoma demands the same from its LBs. He is a good player.
All the other picks are good, though I am not in love with some of them as you are. But I wouldnt mind em either. I still think we need to take the TE position more seriously than a 7th rounder. At the very least, we need depth.
[/quote] I don't know if STILL will be there when we pick? He could be or then again he could be gone I remember we all thought Dan Williams was gonna be gone alot earlier then he went and i think he went pick 23 if i am not mistaken? I think its a toss up right now as to if he still there where i got us pickcing which is pick 23
I thought Linval was gonna get more push then he has and thats one of the reasons he was one of my fave prospects when he came out and why i wanted him so badly! Your totally correct as what were missing from our 2007 club Linval and Still would be a beastly duo! Especially if it becomes a Trio and Austin plays well!
Im not nessecarily in love with all the picks at the end of the mock its just the way this paticular one worked out We got plenty of positons that are in need of Depth or legit talent but only so many picks U gotta try and fill a few and find a couple diamonds in the ruff later on
