I realize we need a trade partner but to me a trade back would be best situation in such a deep draft --- the fact draft is considered so deep also works against other teams wanting to give up extra picks to move up.
If we trade back to say #20 range.
I would love to see say a K-Ealy pick (that gives us a solid 4 DE rotation). Then hopefully our trade back nets us a late 2nd round pick.
In the 2nd we could address DT (Hageman?) at #43 and then with the later 2nd round pick grab a TE (S-Jenkins/Niklas). Then in 3rd we go C or G (Martin (USC) or Yankey (Stanford). In the 4th we go best RB (Hill/Sims/Williams). With our 2 5th round picks we could hit WIL and OL again.
So something like.....
#20 Ealy (DE) 1st
#43 Hageman (DT) 2nd
#53? Niklas (TE) 2nd
#74 Martin (USC) C or Yankey (Stanford) G 3rd
#113 Hill (LSU) RB 4th
#152 WIL ? 5th
#174 OL ? 5th
having a constant threat to get to the QB from the inside would have a ripple effect on the defense and improve not only the DL play but the entire front seven, if donald is what we think he is, you run to the podium if he's there at 12.
to be honest though, there are maybe 5 different players that will be around at the time of the giants pick that i wouldn't have any problem with taking.
They need pass rushers.
If Barr and Donald are there I would prefer Barr!
Personally I dont think he would be a good fit, if we ran a 3-4 or even a hybrid system I would be on board, but we're a 4-3 team and he would have alot of work to do to get on the field for opening day.
Donald on the other hand could step in and produce from the start
Round1: AA-Ron Donald, DT, Pitt
Round2: Kareem Martin, UNC, DE
Round3: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington
Round4: Travis Swanson, C, Arkansas
Round5: Cyril Richardson, OG, Baylor
Round5: Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers
I think the Giants should jump all over Evans if he is there at #12 if he isn't there i think they have to go DT taking Donald or Hageman or Nix. I'm not as high ion Ebron as I was a few months ago. I don't feel he is worth a # 12 overall pick Evan is worth it.
The Giants need an impact player at #12. Aaron Donald is an impact player. He will instantly improve the pass rush.
He reminds me of Jon Randle.
