NEW YORK – The Giants made a solid pick in drafting CB Prince Amukamara (6’0″ 206 pounds). Nobody thought he would be available at the 19th pick, including the Giants who didn’t even bring him in for a workout because they thought it would be a lost cause. Much to everyones surprise, he was available and GM Jerry Reese did the right thing and picked him. Giants fans at Radio City Music Hall went absolutely ballistic and had been chanting his name prior to the announcement.
I would suggest that all of our readers go to Giants.com and watch all of the multimedia available on this kid. You will fall in love with this player before you’re done watching all of the video on him. He is humble, polite and clearly has a desire to become the best CB possible. He respects God and family and is exactly the type of player that Tom Coughlin loves. He had an excellent college career at Nebraska and was rated a top ten player in the 2011 draft. His energy is infectious and he really wants to improve and work on his game. Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell is the happiest person in the Giants organization this morning. Fewell works wonders with DB’s and having a young player who wants to work is like a dream come true for a DC.
I’m giving GM Jerry Reese the easiest A+ he has ever gotten in his life for making this pick. It truly was a no brainer and Giants fans can rest assured that this kid is the real deal. The Giants now have one of the scariest backfields in the entire NFL. Hopefully, we can keep DC Perry Fewell (he is getting head coaching offers) with the team for a few years and really build something special on defense.
Are you excited about the Giants landing a top ten prospect with the 19th overall pick?
