[quote user="buffyblue"]NY Giants may reach a little bit to fill a need or the best available that they feel wont be around if they dont grab him then.
Remember JPP was a little bit of a reach. He was our third choice when we drafted him. We wanted Rolondo McLain but Oakland snagged him. Then we wanted CJ Spiller but Buffalo grabbed him. Lot of folks were surprised at the JPP pick. When they showed the back flips, I knew all was good.[/quote]
It wasn't a reach ... JPP was a first round talent (slotted around 22 or so).
It wasn't even a surprising pick since he was on their radar from the get go.
McClain not being available was a bigger surprise.
