  • I think Rattay would be a good pickup for backup QB if Bledsoe is definetly leaving.

      1. Amobi Okoye, DT, Louisville - I gotta say, I know this isn't the top need but, this guy has so much upside to him it would be hard to pass him up. You may have heard it before, but I'll say it again, 4 years of D-1A experience and only 20 years young!

      2. Justin Blalock, G, Texas - Definetly the more realistic choice. We have a couple of young RBs but up front we are getting long in the tooth. The "Marco Rivera Era" is over in mind.

      3. Levi Brown, OT, Penn State - Also a great pick to bring some youth to our O-Line. At 6-5 328 a perfect OT-OG tweener to grab in the first round.

      4. Sidney Rice, WR, South Carolina - With Glenn and Ownes both drafted over 10 years ago, WR is also a position where could stand to get younger. Even though we have a plethora of young propects at WR, none of them posses the natural talent of Mr. Rice.

      5. Marcus McCauley, CB, Fresno St. - I like this kids combonation of size and speed. Aaron Glenn, even though he holds his own, is not long for this league and we need to start thinking about the possibilty of Henry moving to Safety and plugging in a true playmaker a CB along with Newman.
      Okoye is a hit or miss prospect and I'm not sure that he really projects well to a 3-4 NT prospect. He could either be a huge flop or a huge success. Buyer beware.

      Blalock would be great, but will we address OG in FA first?

      I fully support drafting Brown.

      I would support drafting Ginn, but not Rice.
      Side Note: I am a HUGE believer that Miles Austin will turn into something special.

      McCauley is a scrub imo. I wouldn't touch him with a 10 foot pole.

      • If TO is gone, which I am a big proponent of. I would love Robert Meachum in the 1st. And i think we could trade down and we could still get him. But Blalock is still on top of my list.

          whats your opinion of DeShawyn Wynn? Im hoping the Giants nab him as a late round sleeper, but I wouldn't be surprised either if you guys let go of Julius Jones and draft this guy in later rounds to keep that 1,2 punch you have going.

            Really the only guy I want is Thomas...and we have about a 1:25 chance of landing him...I just tried to plan out ever concievable angle.

            Like you said Briggs is a good player but probabally undersized...and wouldn't really give us anything that we don't have.

            So in reality I would love to go after Sharper...but thats just as bold as predicting we are gonna sign Thomas.

            The only place I'm confident that will be addressed in FA is OG since it is deep....we really have noone to step in...and we can't find someone with leadership and experience in the draft...which is something out OL needs.
            I've been trying to tell people not to sleep on Proctor, this guy can really play. In fact, he was probably our best interior lineman during the preseason, and Parcells was constantly referring to him when asked about Peterman and the fact that he was a bust, suggesting that Proctor coming along was kind of making up for Peterman going belly up. This guy is, at the very least, going to be in consideration next year. That doesn't mean I don't want us to bring in a vet guard or anything, but rather that we don't HAVE to if the cost is going to be prohibitive.
            From your lips to God's ears. Personally, I think both our guards are lacking so .... even if Proctor comes through, we sign Colombo, we sign Gurode, Flo stays ... I would stil go FA for Davis/Steinbach/whoever and bench Kosier.

            Bench is Kosier, McQuistan and rookie G.

            As is, we likely lose Johnson for nothing. Rivera was a bust.
            I agree Proctor showed us somethin in TC..but I'll definately want to see it again...after all neither of our OG were ever being considered to be replaced..which has to make you think. This makes me even more avid to get a FA OG over a drafted guy. We have a developing youth that has the ability but just needs a bit of time....

            Kosier was cap money well spent. We got a guy decently priced with veteran experience...and the versatility to play anywhere on the line. He is no Larry Allen but we knew that coming in. He is great when asked to pull and only seems to get abused when going up against bigger DT's on the bull rush...but 1 on 1 he should get beat...I mean Gurode was almost exclusively helping Rivera...and when he wasn't we all know what happened.

            My question of the day is...if we bring in a solid smash mouth OG...would Koiser move the the right side to give us the beef to punch it in on the left side. Another thing this would enable...is second level blocking...If we had a LG that could get a solid push it would enable us to let Flozell get to the second level and thus Koiser could pull and kick out the DE...I wanna come out of FA with a mauler...I really think that could help our short yardage game...Koiser is a good player...but you can't ask him to get a great push when he is outweighed by 40lbs.
            It's easy to say "I want to get (fill in the blank) in FA", but you have to realize that it's just a list of players. If you want a mauler, you have to come up with a specific name. Leonard Davis is not a guard. He's waaaaay too tall, and a perenial underachiever to boot. Steinbach is the best choice, but there will be a lot of competition for his services, and even then I don't think he is a major road-grader type like you are hoping for (though I am not positive because I haven't watched him play much). Besides that, who is out there that will be available and fit your bill? I can't think of anyone who doesn't give me serious pause.
            My list goes like this...
            1- Eric Steinbach, UFA, Bengals
            2- Derrick Dockery, UFA, Washington Redskins
            3- Jordan Black, UFA, Kansas City Chiefs

            • Asante Samuel is a UFA. He's a interception machine, him and Newman will give us one of the best CB duos in the League IMO.

                Letting Julius go in favor of a bigger back is a BP move. Still think he has value in a place like Houston.

                I would not be shocked or upset with Lynch or Bush. Bush is a basher.

                  Big issue is $$$$$$$$$$$.

                  But if you do this then what about Henry? Watkins? Williams?

                  Newman aint going nowhere.

                    I would perfer to have a bigger more physical CB opposite of Newman. i'm assuming your converting Henry to a FS to bring in a top FA CB...just seems a little far fetched for me. Hughes is the perfect fit if Henry was to move.

                      I was thinking of moving Henry to Nickel, and getting a guy like Weddle or Sabby in the 2nd or 3rd. But money could be a problem, were are paying Henry alittle to much just to come in on passing downs, so I understand that.

                        Where is Glenn...Glenn hasn't shown any signs of his age...and was a good corner for us this year.

                          I think Wynn has decent upside, but I don't see him as an upgrade over Julius Jones. Looking at the way the Giants utilized Tiki in the short passing game so often, I think a better fit for your system and a good outlet option for Eli would be Lorenzo Booker. He's got exceptional receiving ability out of the backfield and plenty of speed to burn... probably the fastest RB in this draft. You'll give up blocking and the ability to break tackles, but at the same time, you got Brandon Jacobs. Booker actually reminds me a lot of a young Tiki Barber.

                                Are you kidding me? Is this including Terry Glenn and TO's bonus? That seems very high. Is there a source?
