The New York Giants have taken safety Chad Jones with the 76th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. He is 6’2″ 221 pounds and played at LSU. I absolutely love this pick. I have been talking about Chad Jones for a very long time. This is without a doubt a very high value pick for 76th overall. A lot of experts had Chad Jones ranked as a second rounder, including myself. I was hoping the Giants could find a way to grab this kid and develop him. The New York Giants now have one of the most fearsome safety rotations/tandems in the NFL. Kenny Phillips, Antrel Rolle and Chad Jones, Wow! Jerry Reese is doing work in 2010. Perry Fewell must be in a state of ecstasy over the players he will be coaching in his first year with the team.
Jerry Reese has held on to all of his picks through the first three rounds. Big surprise right? I am extremely proud of the work they are doing and give the Giants an “A” grade for the first three rounds. I can’t imagine what is going to happen tomorrow morning when the draft resumes.
I could not be happier that safety Chad Jones is now a New York Giant. Welcome to New York Chad!
