S/O to Flip Empty for the sig
Strick's 2015 All-Sleeper Team - http://boards.giants.com/showthread....t=sleeper+team
I would say that Niklas at #44 is a better value than Ebron at #12
That would be ok with me --- still kind of hoping for Gilbert and Shazier 1 and 2.
Only problem with Donald "Strick" is he is undersized 6'1" and light 285 and we just lost a BIG MAN in middle in Linval who was 6'4" 330 pounder
Your arguments are not only incorrect, they're based off of not factual information whatsoever. Nikklas is a better team player?? Less of a "star"???
The Giants do not need a stereotypical “blocking” TE. We need someone who can put pressure on the middle of the field and cause mismatches against defenses LB’s and Safeties. We also need a player who can take pressure off of the WR’s on the outside.
I don’t know much about Nikklas from Notre Dame, and for all I know he could be great. But Ebron isn’t your every year coming into the draft type TE. He has the size, athleticism, hands, speed and quickness to be a true weapon on any offense. He will make an IMMEDIATE impact on our offense.
You also make a solid argument that Nikklas is "Notre Dame too." Well, Ebron is UNC, and as much as I hate to admit it as an NC State fan, UNC has offered a lot more talent to the NFL in recent years than Notre Dame has. Your points are invalid based off of nothing.
Have you ever watched Ebron?
Cooper, Shelton, Schreff
Or trade down and grab...
Dupree, Armstead, Waynes, Beasley
Niklas might be there for us in the 3rd actually and does it all well. Ebron is certainly more polished running about which would be cool given this new west coast "style" offense. Niklas or C.J. Fidorwitskicavage would be a nice fit here.
I wouldn't hate the pick, if it has to be him, move back a few spots.
2015 Draft Wish List:
1. Kevin White WR
2. Eli Harold OLB/DE
3. Ali Marpet OG
4. Eric Rowe CB
5. Lynden Trail DE
6. Malcolm Brown RB
7. Cameron Clear OT
7. Rory Anderson TE
