Here we are on day two of the “Seven Rounds in Seven Days” segment. We will be examining the past six years of drafts by round. A different set of rounds everyday for seven days. The legendary Ernie Accorsi will be compared to the young buck (I say that with respect) Jerry Reese. The 2010 NFL Draft is now exactly one week away. What will the Giants do? Could they still grab a player via free agency? Will there be a major trade announced? It’s beginning to get very interesting, the closer we get to draft day.
Now, let’s take a look at the New York Giants round six picks for the past six years.
2004 Draft – Round 6 – WR Jamaar Taylor
2005 Draft – Round 6 – DE Eric Moore
2006 Draft – Round 6 – No picks available
2007 Draft – Round 6 – OT Adam Koets
2008 Draft – Round 6 – QB Andre Woodson and DE Robert Henderson
2009 Draft – Round 6 – CB DeAndre Wright
2010 Draft – Round 6 – Position Prediction – Running Back
After taking a look at the history above, I think it is fair to say that round six is a push between these two legends. OT Adam Koets is the only player out of them all that may have any promise of making a living in New York. Robert Henderson would fall to second on the list if I had to choose. It is nothing against the other players that the G-men drafted, it’s just the nature of the business to be somewhat judgmental. The one pattern that I am picking up on thus far, is that Ernie Acorsi seems to be missing picks quite a bit. No doubt from wheeling and dealing but I find it interesting that while Accorsi has given up a pick in each round so far, Reese continues to be stingy with his draft picks and has retained them all. Both of these men are experts at what they do and trying to figure out which system is best is ludicrous. A blend of both styles might be the best thing for New York.
What do you think about this brief history of round six picks? What position do you predict Big Blue taking with the 2010 sixth round pick?
