First 3 rounds of the 2012 NFL draft

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Seems the Giants offense is going to be a little more exciting to watch next season.

In round 1, the Giants went with the 2nd best running back in the draft, HB David Wilson, Virginia Tech. This guy is fast an explosive, and should give the Giants some insurance with Bradshaw’s injury concerns, the departure of Brandon Jacobs, and the unproven guys we have waiting. Wilson is unproven too, of course, but he has the tools to become great. Should be fun to watch in blue.

In round 2, the Giants went with another offensive skill player, WR Reuben Randle out of LSU. Despite a weird offense with a mediocre QB in college, Randle has proven he can make big plays. Marc Ross says he is ready to play in the NFL:

With receivers a lot it gets overblown with 40 times and this and that, you get guys that are NFL-ready. And what I mean by that is this guy is strong, he can catch the ball, he’s a good route runner and he’s position-savvy, he knows how to get open. To me, those are the successful receivers in the NFL.

After going RB and WR in rounds 1 and 2, the Giants went for a deensive skill position in round 3, a CB from Virginia Tech. Something of a surprise pick since he failed a test for marijuana at the combine. But the giants have shown they are willing to draft guys with ‘character concerns’ if they are football players. Think Mario Manningham. Also, he is a bit smaller than the CBs the Giants have been drafting recently – maybe they have him pegged as a guy who can cover small, shifty slot receivers?
