NEW YORK – Hello Giants Fans, I was thinking about the draft and wondering what type of scenario would be acceptable when it came to trading away the 1st round pick. I think getting a 1st round pick and 3rd round pick in 2013 might be worth it. Maybe getting a 2nd round pick this year and 1st round pick in 2013 might be worth it too. It looks like Big Blue is trading away the 5th round pick this year for that Bengals LB Rivers. I have to read up on him but have heard he’s had injury issues. They also know they have two 4th round draft picks, because of the compensation pick. Once that news becomes official about LB Rivers, we can look at the draft board again.
The Giants are working on the offensive lineman and linebacker positions via free agency, just like we thought they would. Very smart move by Giants GM Jerry Reese and the front office. I love how this team is coming together already. Can the Giants strike gold late with a running back? Will the Giants draft for offense or defense with the first pick? Who will be the Giants 1st round pick? Will the G-Men trade their 1st round pick?
Let me just say that I do not think GM Jerry Reese will trade away any other draft picks, if he gives up the 5th round pick for LB Rivers. I’m starting to lean towards drafting the best available player in round one. I know this sounds strange because I keep adjusting to the new moves Big Blue makes. They are locking down an offensive lineman with veteran OL Sean Locklear and linebacker Keith Rivers via free agency. That means a cornerback or wide receiver in round one would not surprise me, since they are both very athletic positions. The Giants drafting the best available player would surprise me even less. They are squared away pretty good right now and still have time to work before training camp. The team looks deceiving until you realize how much talent is returning from injury. Some very good players will be back stronger then ever and ready to play some football. The Giants truly look like they are building a dynasty in New York.
What are your thoughts about having the final pick of round one? Is it worth holding onto or would you trade it away for more picks next year?

they did get rivers for a fifth round pick with the bengals minutes ago.and its official with tackle sean lockler.i would keep the 1st round pick,because the time is now to make a move with that pick.busy day for big blue,i do not like trading 5th round for rivers,the guy is an injury report.to me its a head scratcher but i heard it might be a flip flop opportunity for the g-men.
Well it shows where Jerry Reese is concerned with. I heard that Rivers has been injured every year since being drafted but he was a first round pick. I hope he can get his career back on track and I absolutely love the young second year LB’s who did a great job last season. The Giants LB’s are deeper then people think.
i agree,i love the g-mens LBs.g-men just picked up antwan moldan from the pats at the corner position because of ross.good pick up,jerrys on it.
Reese is a beast with the draft!
