  • Discuss the Giants 2007 Draft Picks

    I figured we could use a nice, clean, thread to put discuss all the players we get in the draft this year. Wait until our first pick to post here.

    Ross? Meh.

    I really like Ross, I just don't like that he is 25 years old as a rookie.

    Sigh. Guess it could've been worse with Staley or a linebacker at that spot.

        Aaron Ross

        I am very disappointed. He is already 26 and a corner. I imagine that teams offered us good value for pick #20 with Quinn on the board (and Jax, dallas and KC right behind us).

        Instead we got Aaron Ross. I dont like it at all. Staley, Poz, Reggie Nelson, or a WR would have been a better pick imo

          im not a fan AT ALL!!! we passed on BEASON, BRANCH, NELSON for a 25 year old rookie CB? there is a lot of depth @ CB in this draft and with revis and hall gone i think it was a bad move. we could have gotten josh wilson, mccauley, etc in the 2nd round and got beason or branch 1st. this was a bad decision

            i totally agree. with the value that was on the board there i think it was ridiculous to take him. there is a lot of value @ CB in the 2nd round in wilson, mccauley, etc. we passed on beason, branch, houston, nelson, heck i would rather have poz. ur right we could have entertained trade offers to cle, det, etc who want quinn. ross is 25 years old! bad pick jerry reese

              The more I think about it, the smarter this pick is.

              Now, I don't know if it was a superb pick, but it was smart.

              Why take Branch when Robbins and Cofield come on strong, not to mention Bell being that big guy we need. Robbins is getting up there, but I still think it wouldn't be prudent to take him.

              Nelson? What if Demps and Wilson pan out? Waste of pick right there.

              Staley? I supported him before the Draft, but once it was at our pick I was thinking, "Please, please - do not make this pick."

              Beason? I don't like Beason. Not what we need in a linebacker.

              I don't know. I think this is one of those picks we'll learn to like as Giants fans, just because if you THINK about it if we took Branch or Nelson they may have been for nothing.

                And Dallas made the trade we should have.

                We could have the Browns 08 first rounder and this years second rounder....

                It would have been a top 10 pick for sure.

                Great job Reese. You suck

                  Its tough, I wanted a corner, Houston was my #2 rated corner in this draft so I'm upset we didn't get him, but Ross provides help on returns, and I think thats what pushed us over the top on him.

                  Hopefully it pans out

                    Doesnt matter. im sure your right it is something we will learn to like but the fact is- he was not the right decision in my opinion. I would much rather have had chris houston or wilson or mccauley in the 2nd. its not like ross brings a different dimension to the defense- hes not that fast. we needed speed in the secondary which these guys could have provided. ross is 25 almost 26 years old! that is ridiculous to take a guy already aged in the 1st round of the nfl draft. by time he adjusts to the game and to the team hes 27! yes branch , dt, is not a direct NEED but hes a steal at the 20th pick. i wanted beason the most and we messed up

                      Hah, wow, shows how much you know.

                      I doubt Cleveland offered us even close to that.

                      Cowboys had huge leverage in the fact they thought Kansas City would be taking him next.

                      You have absolutely zero idea what they were thinking, so before you insult Jerry Reese you should take not you have zero idea what they were offering us, if they even did offer us something. They might've though it would take even more to get our spot.

                          We were 1 pick difference from Dallas.

                          If Reese actually made a call to the Browns, I am sure that they would have made the exact same deal with us instead of Dallas. Theres no reason they wouldnt.

                          Its mismanagement on Reese's part.

                            I agree, I'd rather have someone else, but it's not too bad.

                            Also, just so you all know, Ross is 24, he'll be 25 in the first week of the NFL so you know.

                            He might be the most pro-ready cornerback, so, hopefully, he'll be starting for us.

                              Completely wrong, again you have absolutely no idea what was going on behind the scenes. For all you know, Cleveland offered us (if anything) a 2nd and 3rd rounder. Maybe even less.

                              My guess is when Cleveland realized KC might take him, they threw whatever they could at Dallas to get the pick.

                              I'm not saying it was a great pick, or that they didn't offer us anything - I'm just saying you have zero clue what happened.
