The 2010 NFL Draft is now 5 days away Giants fans. Today, we take a look at the round four picks from the past six years. So far, Jerry Reese has proven to be extremely resourceful by garnering the nod for rounds 5,6 and 7 over Accorsi. Will he be able to run the table and grab round four as well? True Giants fans know that comparing both of these men is like comparing Michael Jordan to Magic Johnson. Opinions may vary on who was the better player but all will agree that both were great. Both are great in their own right and we are merely comparing picks here and not the men.
Let’s take a look at the New York Giants fourth round picks for the past six years.
2004 Draft – Round 4 – LB Reggie Torbor
2005 Draft – Round 4 – RB Brandon Jacobs
2006 Draft – Round 4 – DT Barry Cofield and OT Guy Whimper
2007 Draft – Round 4 – LB Zak DeOssie
2008 Draft – Round 4 – LB Bryan Kehl
2009 Draft – Round 4 – RB Andre Brown
2010 Draft – Round 4 – Position Prediction – Cornerback
Finally, we have a round that goes to Ernie Accorsi and a round where Accorsi has all of his picks. There should be no doubt at all that round four has been a monster for Accorsi in his final three years as the New York Giants general manager. In my opinion, all three of his picks are winners. Reggie Torbor is a player that I have always liked, Brandon Jacobs is the starting running back for the G-men and Barry Cofield is solid as a rock in his defensive tackle position. I like all three of these players and all have proven to be wise choices. Jerry Reese didn’t do bad either. All three of the players Reese picked are still on the team. DeOssie and Kehl have had more opportunities to play then Brown (Brown was injured for his entire rookie season in 2009) but Brown has some serious potential to grow and flourish.
What do you think about the New York Giants fourth round picks for the past six years? Do you agree with me in giving round four to Accorsi?
