New York Giants Draft P Matt Dodge in Round 7

April 24, 2010

The New York Giants select Punter Matt Dodge from East Carolina with the final pick of the 2010 NFL Draft. He is 6’1″ 224 pounds. The 2010 NFL Draft is now officially over for Big Blue. We will need to take a closer look at what the Giants have done this year. Be sure to come back and check out the recap article to come tomorrow. Please feel free to leave your comments below with your opinions. I would love to hear what some of you think about the Giants 2010 NFL Draft.  This has been one of the most surprising (in a good way) drafts in recent memory. it could prove to be right up there with the likes of the 2007 NFL Draft.

I’m not sure how most of the other Giants fans are going to take this but this kid may be the cream of the crop for punters in 2010. I don’t remember seeing any punters or kickers get drafted before this one. If the guy is worth it and can perform, I think this was a smart pick by the team to get some depth and competition for training camp.

I can’t say that I even remember the last time the Giants drafted a punter but I would be happy to lock one down for the next 5 years here and now if that’s the case. Recent reports say that Feagles and Coach Coughlin have been talking about feagles future and if he can continue after 22 years in the NFL. feagles will be in the Hall of Fame one day for certain. We here at the NYG Reporter wish him well with whatever he chooses to do.

New York Giants Draft LB Adrian Tracy in Round 6

April 24, 2010

The New York Giants select LB Adrian Tracy with the 184th overall pick in round six. He is 6’3″ 248 pounds and played at William and Mary college. Jerry Reese has been killing his picks all weekend. He gave the linebacker position a double tap to be sure it was taken care of. This 2010 NFL Draft reminds me of the 2007 NFL Draft. The Giants will be walking away with playmakers and extremely strong young men. Reports have swirled about DT Joseph and OG Petrus being two of the strongest physical players in the entire draft. It is a shame that the media isn’t giving Jerry Reese more credit for this draft. It seems like I have heard very little about the New York Giants all weekend while watching it LIVE.

I really like the team taking a chance on a linebacker this late in the draft. Hitting this position twice just shows how serious the front office is about creating some competition during training camp in 2010. I’m extremely excited to see which player rises to the occasion and becomes the new middle linebacker on Big Blue. I am confident that the G-men have drafted no less then three future starters for the team.

PS – ESPN has cut to commercial on three different New York Giants draft picks. Roger Goodell needs to explore his options about who airs the NFL Draft from now on. I was mad enough in round two but you have got to be kidding me now? Really ESPN?


New York Giants Draft OG Mitch Petrus in Round 5

April 24, 2010

The New York Giants have selected OG Mitch Petrus from Arkansas with the 147th overall pick in round five. He is 6’3″ 310 pounds and athletic. Jerry Reese must have a crystal ball or lucky horseshoe on him at all times, because this guy knows how to draft football players. Besides surprising a lot of the Big Blue faithful with taking four straight defensive players, Jerry Reese has also won over the majority in his fourth straight year as the Giants GM. There is a future GM of the Year award in your future Jerry, leave an open space for it over the mantle. I love watching the methodical War Room do their thing. This is one big chess game and the Giants have been addressing areas of need with surgical precision. There has not been a dull moment once this year.

The Giants needed to grab an offensive lineman (Yes, I have been talking about it all weekend) and they pulled the trigger. They take an offensive guard in round five and inch closer to closing out the final day of the 2010 NFL Draft. I would not be surprised to see another offensive lineman taken or a cornerback. The Giants next draft pick is 184th overall in round six. There is no way to know what Jerry Reese is going to do. The man is in the zone this year and it’s a pleasure to watch it unfold. Welcome to New York Mitch!
