And while it’s easy to suggest the Giants...

2016 NFL Draft- Round 2 & 3

The Giants drafted WR Sterling Shepard and S Darian Thompson. Shepard was ranked 49th by us out of our top 50, so he’s a good solid player. He’s got good hands. He’ll be able to help the team because he’s a good WR. But just like with Eli Apple, another good player, the Giants missed another opportunity to get a terrific Offensive Tackle. This time the pick was Jason Spriggs...

NYG select Eli Apple

Last year, the Giants were hot for T Brandon Scherff.  We did not like the prospect, certainly not at 9th overall, because we did not project Scherff as a Tackle, and believed he was going to be a Guard.  You do not take a Guard 9th overall.  Well, the Redskins saved Jerry Reese from himself, because they took Scherff at 5 and forced Reese to do the right thing and take true Tackle...
