A Giant prototype draft day would be the antichrist to what Hurney did.
The Giants haven't selected a LInebacker #1 since Carl Banks.
One thing for sure, we'd stop collecting LBs and RBs.

Kind of like Hurney ignoring DB?

The Giants had the 32nd ranked run offense last year and arguably the best WR tandem in the league.

They like to focus drafting high at DE, CB and WR so no surprise.
Although at 32 last year they did go RB to address it.

I think Marc Ross has the best shot at becoming our next GM. Scot McCloughan does have a spotty draft history but some of his draft day deals he made and the guys he got has made the 49ers what they are today. Let's face it, their are a lot of GM's they hit or miss in the draft process. Their is noway you can be flawless during the draft. What some people don't realize is that the 49ers had a good team before Jim Harbaugh. They just didn't have any sense of direction coaching wise.

That hasn't always been the case stat man. They've always had a good run game with Jacobs and Bradshaw and even Barber before that. Their D line has always been a very strong unit. You can't say the same for the Panthers the last 7 years. We've had no identity at all.

Man, I'd love either one of those three, primarily DeCosta or Ross.

I'd be all for somebody who has learned under Newsome in B-More.

Giants were REALLY high on Doug martin. But he was taken one pick before 32. The Giants with Doug Martin would have been...

McCloughlan was a name I had early on but moved to the back burner because Yasinskas said they were looking for someone who'd never been a GM before.

Hard to know how seriously to take this given that he mentions DeCosta who doesn't seem like a realistic option at all.

Yeah dude everything I have read on DeCosta pretty much says he isn't going anywhere. He doesn't want to leave and is making a ton of cash in Baltimore.
