Lets be honest, we have a lot of glaring holes on this team.

We desperately need to upgrade the WR, DT, OT, OG, CB, and both Safety positions.

This won't get fixed in one off season, we pick the BAP at those positions instead of focusing in on one or 2 positions.

Obviously we need to make it a higher priority and I have faith that the Godfather will make he right decisions moving forward...

I wouldn't say we desperately need to upgrade WR, OT (if Gross stays) or CB. Even if Gamble leaves we're not desperate at CB. The only "desperate" upgrades I see us needing is DT, S and maybe OG. CB could use some depth and maybe someone to push Thomas, Norman, Capt and Dockery if Gamble leaves. OT and WR will need successors eventually, better sooner than later, but they're not critical "must haves" this offseason.

And of those three legitimate holes, I can mock us our first three picks and fill them right now:

1. Hankins or J Williams
2. Barrett Jones, Cooper, or Larry Warford
4. Rambo (or Eric Reid and let Godfrey stay at FS where I like him best anyway)

Bam. No holes. Just future replacements needed for Gross and Smitty and depth at CB and OL

I like your mock. I would be satisfied with those picks although. I just really want a stud OG . I think it will hide our tackle deficiency by addition of a better run game.

14th is perfect for a DT. There isn't any reaching anymore, unless you're q QB needy team with the #1 pick and QBs suck in this years draft. The rookie pay scale softened the blow. We are in a perfect range to get a great DT, OT, DB, WR.

i agree we are in perfect range for a good talent at DT, OT, WR, DB,but you should not reach for any position but QB. if no DT is there at 14 worth the pick, get a WR,OL, or DB.

I don't disagree. the edwards wall was solid last season but dwan shouldn't be considered much more than hollis thomas was in 2009(?) ron is getting up there too.

I'd love to see offensive and defensive lineman in the first two rounds, and given the giants philosophy i think that's a safe bet


You got those names backwards. Ron is the older one.

Gettleman came from the Giants and knows the players very well. The Giants need a MLB and we need a WR. Beason would be a good fit for them and we need Nicks at WR. If Getleman can make it happen, we would not feel bad for Beason leaving and it will meet a big need for us without using our draft picks.
A win win !

I don't see them giving up Nicks that easy for a questionable Beason (though Nicks has his injury issues/history as well). Perhaps some other players or WRs could be in that scenario as well. Interesting thought if all parties would agree. Obviously allows us to address DT with the first pick.

Kris Jenkins was a 3rd round pick.

That being said.
Knowing our new general manager loves big men on the lines, I expect both lines to be addressed this off season.


That's what I thought too.
