Ex-GM Dave Gettleman did the team a favor by "retiring" from the team rather than face the axe from team owners John Mara and Steve Tisch. For now it appears that HC Joe Judge's job is safe (edit: Joe Judge has been fired) despite reports that he's "lost the locker room". Where other doormat teams (Jags, Lions) rose to the occasion in Week 18 with "this is OUR Super Bowl" performances, the Giants limped into the offseason with an uninspired finale. Heck even the Jets had Bills' fans sweating well into Q4.


Onto the draft, the Giants need to find a new GM with a proven track record of successful talent evaluation when applied to both the Draft and Free Agency. For now, we'll take the safe route and continue to build the offensive line with Charles Cross here. Andrew Thomas recovered nicely in his second year after a disastrous rookie year, but there's still a weakness on the right side as well as the interior.

The Giant need an edge, as in EDGE defender. But so does everyone else - so desperate are the Jets that we've got them picking EDGE-3 (currently George Karlaftis) at pick #4. Does the team reach for David Ojabo with the Bears pick here at #7? Or pick between a high upside CB who hasn't played much in two years in Derek Stingley, or a ""safe"" CB (Ahmad Gardner) with a sterling career who lacks the raw skills of Stingley? The new GM can also be tempted (in this mock) with the draft's highest-rated player (S Kyle Hamilton), the WR-1 (pick among the 3 best), or reach for a need position on the interior offensive line (Linderbaum). Giant's fans tell me what you'd do here at #7:

GIANTS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
