NEW YORK – The New York Giants can feel the draft creeping up on them. I cannot believe it is almost time for the 2012 NFL draft to kick off. In just about two weeks, fans will know who their first round pick will be. I have even heard some suggest the Giants trade away this years first round pick, for a first round pick next year and a second rounder this year, then work the two second round picks. I don’t know about this strategy because GM Jerry Reese usually keeps all of his draft picks. The Giants are very good at the draft and have had a tremendous draft record the past decade.
The best possible example of Jerry Reese taking the best player available is CB Prince Amukamara. Nobody, including myself, thought Prince would still be on the board at the Giants pick that year but he was. There is nothing you can do in a situation like that but take the guy. So this is always a very good possibility and it will not be a surprise to you, if you take your notes and follow it LIVE on the computer and TV. You’ve alread seen the players I listed as draft possibilities in the first part of this article, Happy Easter to our Readers, Giants Mock Draft but I’d like to hear about other players you guys feel might be a help to the team. I know we have more readers out there, so let me hear your thoughts on this. The Giants should slowly begin to pull away from the media for a while. They never reveal their poker hand to the media and I like it. Here is the draft order below.
