    First round DE

    The Giants are known for their pass rush up front and it will be in need of an upgrade after next year. Why? Because after next year Osi will be gone, and Tuck will be 30 and coming into a contract year. If you draft a DE now he will be ready to replace Osi when he leaves.

    Who do you guys like?

    I understand the Osi leaving assumptions. But I prefer not to talk about it as if it already happened.

    Osi playing with the Giants next year is still not a far-fetched notion.

    he said "after next year", He's counting on Osi playing out his contract.


    Given the draft position, The only one I really like is Melvin Ingram. I think his lack of height will drop him down boards, but he really reminds me of Tuck: Long arms, good athleticism, non-stop motor, and already plays all around the D-Line.

    Mercilus is probably the best DE in the draft, but he'll be long gone the time JR steps up to the plate. (Note: I'm thinking Perry gets nabbed by NE before us, he can play OLB or DE, and they need a pass rusher)

    Fletcher Cox is a good choice at DT, as well. I'm not ruling out Austin, but how many times have we seen a position of strength and depth wiped out by injury? I'd prefer that NOT happen to the D-line, thank you very much.

    thank you for pointing out that I said "after next year."

    Melvin Ingram is an athlete!! but honestly I see him going 2nd after coples. I checked scouts incs top 32 and Mercilus isn't even on it. Probably because he is a one year wonder but regardless he knows how to get to the QB and he has ideal size.

    I just saw a star on ESPN and it was showing that the Giants hit the QB over 80% of drop backs with only their front 4 or something like that. We need to keep it up so DE is definitely an option.

I forget his name, good size, great production, comes off the ball nicely......
    Personally I want Fletcher cox or Dwayne Allen

    [/quote] FLetcher Cox is right at the top of my list of hopefuls(being the possible realistic guys that could be available) that i hope are there at the END of RD 1.. Cox is a flat out Brute and playmaker from the DT positon.. I think u put him next to Linval Joseph and u got one of the best DT pairings in the league! It could possibly be one of the strongest(pure strength) DT pairings in the league! Cox could also step outside on Run plays if need be with his versatility.. I love watching him put his head down and drive into the back field...lol I think Cox is right there with Devon Still as the Best DT in this yrs draft .. Still is ahead of em but by very little in my opinion..

    I would rather see LB or RB maybe more help in the secondary or how about someone who's a threat in punt or kick returns.
