Plus, we do need someone to jump right in and start because we really have no proven talent to take some of the heat off Cruz.

If I can get him and a second rounder for our 12th pick, I'm happy. Relying on Snee or The Bully will make me sad. Snee bouncing back to pro bowl form for a year with Martin ready to step in will make me happy again.
From what I've read, (again, I don't know one way or the other) we can get a possible year one starter at WR or TE in the second round (TE more likely). We do that and have Martin, we have a much better run game with Jennings. Better run game will equal a bounce back year for Eil. That coupled with improved defense and we are super bowl bound (of course).
My biggest concern with the above scenario is finding a replacement for Tuck - can we get a DE who can apply a little pressure while still stopping the run with the extra second or post June 1st cuts?
All that being said, I prefer Evans at 12 and the above as a fall-back.
To G-man Surge: I agree that some of us are missing the point of discussing this scenario but I think you go too far in saying it would be "easy" to trade down. If Evans isn't an option, I can only hope there are players the Giants don't want that someone else does so the Giants have a partner. Esay - probably not. But not a fantasy either.
