The New York Giants have selected OG Mitch Petrus from Arkansas with the 147th overall pick in round five. He is 6’3″ 310 pounds and athletic. Jerry Reese must have a crystal ball or lucky horseshoe on him at all times, because this guy knows how to draft football players. Besides surprising a lot of the Big Blue faithful with taking four straight defensive players, Jerry Reese has also won over the majority in his fourth straight year as the Giants GM. There is a future GM of the Year award in your future Jerry, leave an open space for it over the mantle. I love watching the methodical War Room do their thing. This is one big chess game and the Giants have been addressing areas of need with surgical precision. There has not been a dull moment once this year.
The Giants needed to grab an offensive lineman (Yes, I have been talking about it all weekend) and they pulled the trigger. They take an offensive guard in round five and inch closer to closing out the final day of the 2010 NFL Draft. I would not be surprised to see another offensive lineman taken or a cornerback. The Giants next draft pick is 184th overall in round six. There is no way to know what Jerry Reese is going to do. The man is in the zone this year and it’s a pleasure to watch it unfold. Welcome to New York Mitch!
