WONDER’S PERSPECTIVE

We can guess all day whether Reese is in a position to trade up or trade down. My instinct is to believe that since this draft is deep enough through at least Round 2 (and more likely through Round 3), the Giants are going to sit back and wait for #31. Who is going to be available AND/OR a good pick at #31 for the Giants? WONDER answers that question for us:

Cherilus
Mayo
Groves
Hardy
Baker
Sweed?
Keller

Wonder: “Groves is the best of this lot. Hardy is the steal of the draft.”

There are 7 guys listed here, and most will be gone by the time the Giants pick. Wonder is not a Connor fan. Given my personal preference for a Linebacker, GET GROVES! The Giants have not drafted a LB #1 in 24 years, so it is about freaking time! Plus, as much as I respect Wonder’s alert on a WR like Hardy, I do not like WRs in Round 1. Considering that the gmen just scored with Steve Smith at #2 last year and that they have Toomer, Burress, Jennings, Moss… just draft a WR in ~4th or 5th round (more on that this week) and focus on other areas. ALSO, the weakest link on offense for the Giants is now Diehl at LT, so if the Giants go Offense in Round 1 it should be for a guy like Cherilus before a WR. Defense wins championships and the reason we won the Super Bowl was not because we scored 17, it was because we held the Patriots to 14. Take LB Quentin Groves from Auburn and make the defense better.

    You’re right on a bunch of points, but I don’t agree that the Giants are deep at all at WR. I do agree that they are deeper at at WR than they are on the OLine, but I don’t think it’s to the point where if the best player available at #31 is a WR, then the Giants should take him. If the best player available at #31 is a S or a LB then that’s what they should take. The Giants aren’t so empty at any position that they need to reach for a player because he plays a certain position.

    I think a LB or DB is where we should look. This Defense has the potential to become like the ’85 Chicago Bears!
