I didn’t get to watch all the draft b/c well, nobody does, unless they work for ESPN or Fox…but I did see that the Giants took a RB in the 1st round…David Wilson out of Virginia Tech is a pretty good pick for us, seeing as Bradshaw is injury-prone and we let Brandon Jacobs go…the kid is incredibly fast, logging a 4.2 40 time last year and 4.4 at this year’s combine…at 5’9 and 206lbs, he’s smaller than Jacobs, but that’s not a bad thing…he’s extremely proficient in cutting which is a skill that was deteriorating from Jacobs’s repertoir
Also out of VT, we picked up a decent corner is Jaron Hosley…I think all of Giants nation was glad to see Aaron Ross go! Hosley will be a nice replacement b/c he has great hands and is a way better tackler than Ross was…check out his appearance on ESPN’s Sports Science a few months ago
We addressed our other needs on the defense and even picked up vet Shaun Rogers…but other than these 2 picks, we had an underwhelming draft…compared to our NFC East counterparts, our championship unit has only varied by the 2 major offensive players..in addition, we have a cluster of players coming back from injuries, so we’ll see how healthy they can stay…Osi’s contract is still undecided as to whether the Giants will keep him or trade him…personally, I think we should keep him for 1 more year, let the new talent develop around him and then let him go
1 thing’s for certain, the NFC East is definitely the division to watch this season!
