Taking an offensive lineman for the first pick is not going to happen
the first pick is a value pick no sense to make it a need pick. why waste a number one pick when you can take the ol with a later pick.

I don't get it. Move Diehl to right side? He was the best left tackle Eli has had to date in his career. They ought look more into secondary dbacks rather then worry about the offensive line which has plenty of life

Take the 1st round pick and 3rd rounder and get Braylon Edwards. - Why would you draft a WR in the 1st round, when one of the best is there for the taking. No Plaxo, so Eli needs a big WR. My man Braylon is 6'3''. Let get him and chuck him the rock. - We have many picks this year. The 1st round give up would be a wash with Edwards, so basically we giving up a 3rd rounder to get a pro bowler. Thats just common sense Mr. Reese. Sincerely M. Strahan.

Draft comments, recommendations, strategies are all over the board; all of us bleed BLUE - lets accept that as a given. Perhaps some thought should also be given to the following very controversial concept: players are picked & traded and draft strategies are crafted not necessarily to win every SB every year. The Giants, Inc. is a corporation looking to be competitive and relevant, which sells tickets, TV rights, etc. and makes money for the Mara's and Tisches. There is so much more we respect in the Giants organization and history than in just the 3 SB's & pre-merger championships they have won. If you buy-in to this concept, then think about what may happen in the next 72 hours...

Championships are won on the offensive and defensive lines. It is especially hard to throw to that big wr from the seat of your pants!

Champions are built in the trenches people! Only fantasy football nerds that want a WR. As for the need for a big target offer the second #2 pick or a third and fifth round for Tony Gonzalez who is sure handed and has the attitude and personality to fit right in with us. Nicks, Heyward-Bey, Harvin, Macklin, Britt all are underclassmen who would take time to adjust to the speed of the NFL.

What about Whimper and the other guys we have drafted or picked up? Are they all just duds?

I like Alex Mack of California. I know he plays center and Shawn O'Hara is signed through 2012 but O'Hara can always move to guard. Mack is a Nick Mangold type of talent and would be a rock for the Giants after O'Hara is long gone. He's an All-Pro kind of talent apparently.

Giants don't mess around or get cute here.

Draft your biggest need which is either WR or LB.

You guys know that our calling card is strong DEFENSE first and an efficient if unspectacular offense. We need some athleticism at LB. Trade up and get one of those three studs from USC. BTW, as a Notre Dame fan that pains me to say....but we need the help.
