Today we will take a look at the New York Giants round five picks for the past six years. We will be comparing former Giants GM Ernie Accorsi and current Giants GM Jerry Reese’s draft picks and making our own 2010 NFL Draft pick by position. There are now 6 days remaining until the 2010 NFL Draft. I want to be clear that this isn’t a comparison of careers and in no way is this a disrespectful analysis of either of these fine men. This is a pre-draft segment that we thought would be entertaining for the week leading up to the 2010 NFL Draft. The three years we are looking at for Ernie Accorsi are a fraction of his legendary career.
Let’s take a look at what the short history of round five picks for the G-men are.
2004 Draft – Round 5 – S Gibril Wilson
2005 Draft – Round 5 – No picks available
2006 Draft – Round 5 – CB Charlie Peprah
2007 Draft – Round 5 – TE Kevin Boss
2008 Draft – Round 5 – LB Jonathan Goff
2009 Draft – Round 5 – QB Rhett Bomar
2010 Draft – Round 5 – Position Prediction – Offensive Lineman
Once again, I have to give the edge to Jerry Reese in round five. Ernie Accorsi has kept his record in tact, by not having a pick available in round five. The main reason I am giving Reese the nod is because of TE Kevin Boss. Although safety Gibril Wilson was an equally good player, he is no longer on the Giants and was recently released by Miami. Jonathan Goff could find himself in a starting role this year along with Boss, another reason why I have to give Jerry Reese some extra points. Does it strike anyone else as strange, that Accorsi is missing a pick in each round for his last three years with the team? I’m not talking conspiracy strange, just strange that I hadn’t really noticed it before. A future article might have to investigate what the Giants gained from giving up those picks.
What do you think about the New York Giants round five picks from the past six years? Which GM gets your vote for having the better round five?
