  1. Giants to pick #6 in 2019 NFL draft

    For the record, I was reading that a bunch of people gave the Seahawks' 2012 draft low grades, and all they did was draft Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner. Nobody really knows. Just have to let them play and see what happens now.
  2. Hypothetical : Jones vs. Haskins

    I think that this is what I (and a lot of Giants fans) find so irritating. If you're going to be about BPA, then take BPA. Gettleman said he wouldn't make an exception for QBs, but that's exactly what happened. Oh well. He's on our team now, so we'll see.
  3. Giants to pick #6 in 2019 NFL draft

    The way I'm trying to look at it is that Pat Shurmur got a good year out of Case Keenum. Jones has considerably more talent than Keenum, and Shurmur probably thinks that Jones fits his style of offense like a glove. Shurmur will use a lot of bootlegs and rollouts and quick passes to emphasize YAC and play to Jones' strengths. And defenses will need to load up to stop Saquon, which should make RPOs more effective. If Jones is going to succeed, he couldn't ask for a better place in my opinion. The only negative we be the harsh spotlight he's under.
  4. Official: Dolphins trade for Cardinals QB Josh Rosen

    I have to say, for a 22 year old that supposedly is "aloof" and has "maturity issues" (always from anonymous sources) I feel like Josh has handled this bad hand about as well as someone can. Larry Fitzgerald and Steve Wilks had nothing but positive things to say about him too. I hope he does well in Miami.
  5. Maybe they can swing a deal and trade Jackrabbit for a decent offensive tackle?
  6. Bro I was just thinking about this good call!
  7. LB Oshane Ximines selected by Giants @ 3.95

    Honestly, that's my favorite pick of the draft so far. He can provide some juice on 3rd downs to start his career. Still a bunch of good players left for tomorrow too.
  8. DT Dexter Lawrence selected by Giants @ 1.17

    What an incredibly disappointing first round
  9. QB Daniel Jones selected by Giants @ 1.6

    Look at it this way man at least this pick will get everyone fired and we can start over.
  10. QB Daniel Jones selected by Giants @ 1.6

    It's cool it's not like a great pass rusher was there.
  11. Giants to pick #6 in 2019 NFL draft

    My mock (I think they might actually do this too) 6: Josh Allen, OLB Kentucky (Ed Oliver and the Raiders mystery pick push him down) 17: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke (It's inevitable) 37: Dalton Risner, OT, Kansas State (More likely Greg Little here but I hate Greg Little so I refuse to put him in here, but it'll probably be Greg Little) 95 (probably will be a trade chip but if not, corner. CB Julian Love, I guess?) 108: Taylor Rapp, FS, Washington (I think they'll trade up somewhere in the high third round for Rapp) 132: Nate Davis, OG, Charlotte Somewhere in the 5th: Foster Moreau, TE, LSU

    Oh God please no...
  13. WR Sterling Shepard signed to 4 year/41M extension

    I could see him in the 8 TDs, 1100 yards range next year. He plays receiver like he's a linebacker.
  14. NYGiantsman10's 4 Round Mock Draft

    Hey fellas! I've been deep diving on mocks and draft notes with the draft less than a month away. I tried to put together a mock that's a little different, 50% realistic, 50% hopeful on my part. The way I see it, the holes the Giants have to at least attempt to fill (in no particular order) are QB, edge rusher, and RT. That and we generally just need more plus defenders. You'll see from my explanations that I'm definitely no scout Let me know what you think! Round 1: 6th overall pick: DT Ed Oliver, University of Houston - I've been racking my brain about this pick for awhile. I think that if one of the "Big Three" defensive prospects (Nick Bosa, Josh Allen, Quinnen Williams) slips to 6, the Giants will gladly take one of them. If that doesn't happen, to me it comes down to either Devin White, or Ed Oliver (please God not Rashan Gary). I think Oliver is more in line with what positions Dave Gettleman values, and he just reintroduced himself to the NFL with his ridiculous pro day workout. I know it's an easy comparison, but people keep comparing him to Aaron Donald. I figure James Bettcher will know how to turn Big Ed loose better than the Houston coaches did. The fastest way to the QB is a straight line. I'm a little iffy on Ed's character, but I think the upside justifies the pick. Round 1: 17th overall pick: EDGE Brian Burns, Florida State - I originally had us trading down with Oakland with Oakland coming up for Drew Lock and us getting Burns at 24, but the more I read about his combine and how other analysts view him, it just became increasingly unrealistic in my mind to have Burns around at 24. Heck, he might not be here at 17. But hey, I said 50% realistic, 50% hopeful so he's here! Haha. When I read about and watch Brian Burns I just think speed. Pure pass rushing juice. With the way the NFL is trending, disrupting the QB has become more important than ever. As a rookie Burns can platoon with Markus Golden and Lorenzo Carter (who will hopefully take a step forward) to hopefully add some bite to our pass rush. Hopefully over time he can refine other parts of his game and become a complete player, but I'll settle for some added pass rush juice in year one. Round 2: 37th overall pick: TRADE w/ Arizona. Arizona receives: 2nd round pick (37th overall), New York receives QB Josh Rosen. - I think this is about as fair a trade as Arizona is going to get. A lot of ink has been spilled over this idea, so I won't go over it in depth, but I think it makes sense for both sides. I think Pat Shurmur and Eli would both be really good for Josh, and the Giants can watch how Josh progresses while he waits for his opportunity. If he's not the right fit, they can target 2020 QBs like Tua or Justin Herbert, or even start maneuvering early for the great white whale Trevor Lawrence. Round 3: 84th overall pick: TRADE w/ Seattle. New York receives Seattle's 3rd round pick (84th overall), Seattle receives a 4th (133rd overall), a 5th (142nd overall), and a 6th (180th overall) CB Trayvon Mullen, Clemson - I kept trying to force a trade back into the second round with New Orleans so the Giants could pick Dalton Risner, but I don't think there's any way that Risner will last that long. So, I readjusted and came up with this trade instead. It's a little more modest, and who knows if the value is right (I might be way off on this one). What I do know is DG likes to trade up, Seattle only has four picks, and the Giants need more DBs. I was torn between a corner or a safety, but I think there's a better chance of a good safety prospect slipping to later rounds than a good corner. Trayvon Mullen has good size/speed and was the defensive MVP of the national championship game. Worth a shot here. Round 3: 95th overall pick: OT Yodny Cajuste, West Virginia - So I know a lot of mocks have this hog going in the second round, but he just had surgery on his quad that's going to sideline him for 3 months. I'm hoping it's out of sight/out of mind for teams when they consider Mr. Cajuste, and he slides to us in Round 3. Good size, good strength, background as a basketball player, and plays hard. I think there's a good shot he could start at RT and hold his own (when he's fully healthy of course). I think having a veteran guard next to him will help a lot too. Round 4: 108th overall pick: WR Damarkus Lodge, Ole Miss - This one is a shot in the dark I originally had Miles Boykin here but he went and destroyed the combine. So I shifted gears and tried to find someone else to add some size to the Giants receiving corps. I think he needs a lot of work, but I think the top of the 4th is a good spot for him. The Giants can work him in slowly, and he has the size to add a different dimension to the receivers group. Alrighty! Tell me what you guys think!
  15. Giants to pick #6 in 2019 NFL draft

    It's too bad our roster is in such bad shape and we have so many needs because my goodness TJ Hockenson is my man crush in this draft
