Rd 1 - Michael Floyd - WR, Notre Dame.... Manningham is a FA and with the emergence of Cruz, Manningham is expendable. With that said, they need to keep weapons around Eli and Floyd is a guy that might fall to us in the draft. Super play maker that reminds me of a Larry Fitzgerald.
Rd 2 - Kevin Zeitler - G, Wisconsin.... Mauler! paved the way for Monte Ball this year and does a great job in run support. Petrus showed some promise, but a chance to get a guy like Zeitler is too good to pass up on.
Rd 3- DeQuan Menzie - CB, Alabama.... totally impressed me in the title game. Did a great job shedding blocks and making plays in the backfield. Ross is probably done and that leaves a huge gap after Webster and the unproven Prince. Typical Giants CB size too.
Rd 4 - Vick Ballard - RB, Miss. State.... Power back with good speed. Jacobs is pretty much done and will probably get released due to salary issues. His production has slipped and the Giants were dead last in the NFL in running this year. Ballard could provide a nice powerful mix and also, show the ability to run away from defenders.
Rd 5 - Sean Spence - OLB, The U.... Spence will drop in the draft due to his lack of ideal size (6'0" 225 lbs), but he was arguablythe most productive LB in the country this past year. Super smart and has the speed to get around the field. This kid could provide some good depth behind an aging Boley and a up and coming starter in Williams. Plus, if Spence turns out to be a gem, this could allow the Giants to move Kiwi back to DE.
Rd6 - Nick Provo - TE, Syracuse.... He was the only threat in the Syracuse offense this season. Caught everything thrown at him. Decent speed to elude defenders. TE is clearly an issue that needs to be addressed. Beckum is just terrible.
Rd7 - Dan Persa - QB, Northwestern.... Guy is tough! Smart QB that plays gritty. Does a great job disecting plays and would a fantastic back up for Eli.
