The internet is exploding with ideas and strategies about how the New York Giants should handle the 2010 NFL Draft. I have heard everything you can imagine thus far on who the G-Men should take with the 15th overall pick in this years draft. The fan favorites seem to lock in on two LB’s, Rolando McClain and Sean Weatherspoon. Some have suggested the Giants take the best available player at the 15 spot, even if that means drafting a defensive end, a position that isn’t really on the Giants “need list”. DT David Price is another name that has floated around for over a month now, well before Fred Robbins left to go to St. Louis. I have even heard some people clamoring for Jerry Reese to draft a running back in the first round.
As for me, I’m not sure what Jerry Reese is going to do. All I can do is look at the team and identify the weak areas where improvement is needed. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to diagnose the fact that the Giants need a reliable middle linebacker. This is something that will be addressed one way or another. Everyone has their own list (in order) of team needs based on what they deem is most crucial. If all of the stud LB’s are off the board and it comes down to making a choice between what is left on the board and drafting for need, I would go with drafting another safety. Either Taylor Mays or Earl Thomas with the 1st round pick. I’m still concerned about Kenny Phillips’ health and the reality is we have only 3 safeties on the team, a mistake the Giants made last season that should not be repeated.
I still believe the solution is to get a MLB via free agency, plus the draft but to also bolster our safety position. This is just my opinion. What do you think?
