It feels like we just started doing this segment yesterday but here we are almost at the end. Tomorrow will be the final day of the “Seven Rounds in Seven Days” comparisons, as we reach the first and last round. We are now only 3 days away from the 2010 NFL Draft. This is an extremely unique situation that will not happen again until Jerry Reese decides to retire and a new GM takes over the reins. The 3 year see-saw of draft pick comparisons might not happen again for at least a decade, so I hope all of our readers enjoyed this. I can honestly say that Jerry Reese has done an outstanding job replacing a legend in the pro football world. New York Giants fans have nothing to complain about when it comes to the front office.
Be sure to check back with us on Wednesday, when we do our final 2010 NFL Draft predictions, needs assessment and breakdown. Then be sure to stay with us for the draft weekend, where we will be doing LIVE updates and analysis.
Let’s take a look at the New York Giants second round picks for the past six years.
2004 Draft – Round 2 – OL Chris Snee
2005 Draft – Round 2 – CB Corey Webster
2006 Draft – Round 2 – WR Sinorice Moss
2007 Draft – Round 2 – WR Steve Smith
2008 Draft – Round 2 – CB Terrell Thomas
2009 Draft – Round 2 – LB Clint Sintim and OT William Beatty
2010 Draft – Round 2 – Position Prediction – Offensive Lineman
This has been the most difficult round to compare in this segment so far. Both Reese and Accorsi have done an outstanding job here by drafting players who have already made it to the Pro Bowl. I am going to call round two a push in my opinion. Let me explain why I see round two as being equal. If we “x” out the solid players such as OL Snee, CB Webster, WR Smith and CB Thomas, that leaves us with WR Moss, LB Sintim and OT Beatty. Moss is clearly the bust out of all of these guys but Sintim and Beatty are too young to have proven anything yet. So Moss being invisible “x’s” out Sintim and Beatty’s inexperience. I have to give Jerry Reese some extra credit for once again grabbing two players in a round and holding on to all of the Giants picks.
What do you think about the New York Giants second round picks for the past six years? Do you agree with my theory about Accorsi and Reese being equal this time?
