    Who will be the Giants "WTF?" pick this year?

    Every year, the Giants draft someone that almost no one had predicted. The "tremendous upside" guys Reece talks up that leave even the draft analysts confused. They're usually guys that the Giants can take in way later rounds or as an UDFA. Not that they don't have talent, but still leaves you going "wtf?".

    My nomination this year is: Round 3 - Tyler Orlofsky, C, WVU

    Draft Projection: Round 6-7
    NFL Comparison: Corey Linsley

    Bottom Line Has the natural power to face off and compete against NFL nose guards, but lack of length and leverage could put a cap on where teams are willing to draft him. Functional in space. Lack of lateral quickness isn't a big enough weakness to prevent him from making a living as an NFL starter. Though limited, he has average starter's potential.

    Who do you nominate?

    I think Reese already had his WTF moment when he overpaid for Ellison. Don't necessarily mind the player, but can't imagine another team paying that much for such little production. Let's hope that was it, and Reese got it out of his system.

    In the draft, if he does have a WTF moment, I think it'll be not drafting a OL or LB. I can also see him grabbing a CB in the 1st, which would make me scratch my head a bit.
    NFL Draft (Realistic Hope):

    Rd 1
    Garrett Bolles - OT
    David Njoku - TE
    Zach Cunningham - OLB

    im not sure of any like out there names that he'll draft or anything that we havent heard of because well, i havent heard of them haha. but i can see him taking someone projected later and Reese taking him early. i think the 3rd round may be the round in happens in too. Giants got a 53 pick wait between rounds 3 and 4 so i can see Reese grabbing someone there he really likes but doesnt want to risk waiting to round 4.

    josh dobbs round 1 would be a mind bender, or maybe a trade up (in rounds 1 or 2 most likely) to get a QB

    that would be beyond a "mind bender" that would be the beginning of the end of JR's career here.

    I nominate any player coming from Boston College or Syracuse these players usually are average at best and we always seem to draft them high like teams are breaking down the door to take these players.....lol

    Way overpaid. But maybe seeing he knew he could not enter the bidding wars for the OTs that went for way more then they were worth he figured he'd get this guy to line up and block on one of the ends to maybe help protect the blindside. Still could of done it cheaper I'm.

    Yep he always reaches for a guy that leaves even the Analysts scratching their heads saying he could of got them at the back end or even as an UDFA yet he takes them in round 3 or so.

    Many times the pick leaves us sayin' "Who?" And scrambling to look the guy up, Lol

    We can't really afford to have that happen as we need to hit on every pick this year
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!
    5-NE
    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

    Adam Shaheen. a division II tight end. If we take him in the 2nd, I will most definitely say WTF.

    Rd 1: OJ Howard (TE, Alabama)
    Rd 2: Tanoh Kpassagnon (DE, Villanova)
    Rd 3: Antonio Garcia (OT, Troy)
    Rd 4: Samaje Perine (RB, Oklahoma)
    Rd 5: Davis Webb (QB, Cal)
    Rd 6: Ahkello Witherspoon (CB, Colorado)
    Rd 7: DJ Jones (DT, Ole Miss)

    JR has done it every Draft sometimes more then once per Draft so you know he will do it this weekend. I tend to think it won't be on a TE like BlueSabbeth cause Its such a deep draft at that position. I would say he reaches for a guy that's an O Lineman. After the top three are gone he will reach for someone in rounds 1 or 2 he could probably get in middle to back end rounds just so he us not shut out at the position lol. It will happen

    I'll take a crack. Going with Natedog Peterman in the 2nd. Guy has 4th maybe even 5th round grade from a lot of people, but due to lack of QBs this year will mostly be a 2nd, possibly 3rd round pick. He has some good qualities, but is missing the deep ball and arm strength. I don't necessarily dislike him, but would rather take someone like him later if we go that route. If it were up to me, I'd prob wait until next year to find a groomable QB.
    2017 Draft Wishlist:
    1. Christian McCaffrey RB Stanford
    2. Raekwon McMillan ILB Ohio State
    3. Roderick Johnson OT Florida State
    4. Jordan Leggett TE Clemson
    5. Ryan Glasgow DT Michegan
    6. Chad Kelly QB Ole Miss
    7. Billy Brown WR Shepherd
