I would have loved Cunningham but DT is the bigger need for this year. Goodson, Kennard, Robinson and Casillas are all better players than Bromley and Thomas. Tomlinson was the better "win this year" pick as much as I would have loved Cunningham.
    If we signed Hankins it would have blown all our cap space. Then we would have had to cut other players...probably starters to get enough cap space just to sign our draft picks.
    It's not that easy.

    My guess is they OKd him because they happened so long ago. First was in 2011 in highschool and the second at the start of the 2013 season. He has shown a full recovery since then. I'll still be nervous when he is out there.

    I know. We could not afford him at that price. I was hoping to get him for the deal we offered. I don't blame the Giants at all, I just knew what it meant when he didn't sign here.

    It's the cap era, you can't be strong everywhere. If we didn't draft a DT there would have been a well deserved uproar here.

    We had a huge hole at D tackle going into this draft.
    I guess I would have just drafted Cunningham in the 2nd (assuming not Foster in the 1st), and went DT where they picked Webb. I was high on Montravius Adams and he was picked like 10 picks after Webb in the 3rd by the Packers. I mean, most DTs who play next to Snacks and have Vernon and JPP on the outside will look pretty good.

    And one other thing to consider here. If JR is picking a DT over a LB, that is also driven by the coaching staff. If Spags is there crying for a LB I promise you we would be more apt to address that position. JR doesn't work in a vacuum. It's collaborative.

    Obviously a lot of guy in the Giants hierarchy are on the same page with this tendency regarding LB's in the draft.
