"Devon Kennard | OLB, Southern California
Kennard is an underrated athlete with good diagnostics and the versatility to line up at multiple positions along the front seven, but has struggled to stay healthy in his career at USC. Could be a nice edge-rusher at the next level if he's able to prove durable.
A"

I hope Rich chokes on the next dick he sucks, which should be in the next five to ten minutes.


Hopefully he pays upfront

Front office must really think that there was something rotten on the team last year. Or super worried about the loss of some leaders -- Tuck, Diehl (?).
I had the same thought.

I wonder if TC has been complaining about having to coach prospects who are athletically gifted but lack study habits, work ethic and dedication. If so, he's getting enough rope to hang himself out of this draft.
I like this pick

Nonsense. I'm sure the beatings with a pillowcase full of nickels was much worse.
you can't beat someone with a pillowcase full of nickels, it's too heavy, and the pillowcase splits. You can, however, tie them to a tree and slap them with and old nasty funky wore out sock stuffed with manure.It actually works better when it rips.
strong pick

He just said he just doesn't see Denard as a starter.

Seems like a silly criticism of a 6th rounder.

Ed A. : 5/10/2014 3:51 pm : link
has him as as a 4th round pick. 13 tackles for loss and 9 sacks.

Hilarious.

Not sure what people expect in the draft. Everybody can't believe that their "favorites" haven't been selected, and then get angry when the Giants pass them up. The entire league has passed them up. Last year it was Reddick and Bailiey. This year maybe Richardson and Jensen.

The sixth round pick will almost certainly be someone we haven't heard of.

Bill in UT : 5/10/2014 3:59 pm : link
Good size, major program. But I don't like that he's already had 4 significant injuries. Someone said he fills a need. He only fills a need if he makes the team. I'll settle for him being good enough to knock another LB off the roster.
Yeah but some people met Rich in a parking lot..  
arcarsenal : 5/10/2014 4:00 pm : link
..while he was dragging a stupid Eagle and he was a nice guy, so..

Anyway... Kennard on tape doesn't seem to really have much burst. The versatility is nice though and it seems apparent they're looking for character guys.

Draft  
stretch234 : 5/10/2014 4:06 pm : link
This year they drafted players who have produced through their college careers and can play vs guys who look all world with measurements but really can't play

Every player this draft has proven results and has played multiple years

Ultimately meaningless, but interesting note

Kennard was the #1 DE in his HS class, according to Rivals.

The only one making these picks ? I think not. Coughlin and the rest of the staff has some say so as well. Who was Ahmad Bradshaw before we drafted him ? Who was Brandon Jacobs before we drafted him ? Everybody want those sexy ass picks. But that's not the Giants style. Get over it
These last 4 guys

Look like potentially good
Players but you wonder if
They even get drafted or at

We could have had more

And took these guys later.

with an injury history


This simple statement is a masterpiece. It's seldom that you come across a statement so dismissive, yet so compact. In the space of five non-complex words, we find that this player is not only a dreaded "Tweener," he also has a "history of injuries."

In other, less eloquent words, he's a gimp (injuries), and he doesn't really fit any role on an NFL team. Devastating!

My compliments, sir!
Well Bradshaw was a very productive beast at Marshall, over 3  
BlueLou : 5/10/2014 4:28 pm : link
full seasons with plenty of carries and pass receptions too.

But you're following something brought up by Dane above. While people want to rip Reese and Ross for the selections, I think the whole movement this year to "high character" guys that can contribute early rather than roster space eaters with high potential that never do shit (read, Marvin Austin etc, in here) is most definitely NOT JR and Ross alone. Maybe not even mostly them.

I think it's team wide throughout the FO; it certainly includes TC's voice, maybe Fewell's too, and almost surely the Maras and Tischs or let's just say "ownership."

I'm not sure how much of this movement was fomented by a "rotten" locker room, or worry about the loss of guys like Tuck and DD, or maybe a response to the FA system which makes a team "pay double" for taking high upside (but maybe immature) athletically gifted players that need 1-3 years of maturation/coaching to be productive.

But this smells like a very conscious, reasoned and well thought out approach to the team's current situation personnel-wise and also the way of the league re FA...

You're getting angry at and responding to RH? Have you ever seen a sensible post by this guy? Why are you getting upset at a normal post for him? Ignore him and move on, you'll be a lot happier.
don't like this pick  
GiantsFan84 : 5/10/2014 7:08 pm : link
just doesn't scream 4-3 LB to me. seems a little slow and i'd prefer someone with more speed in today's NFL. glad he has intangibles but I don't see the positives about this pick.
What a depressing day. So many very good players we passed on in each  
Rich Houston-NYG-WR-1971 : 5/10/2014 7:16 pm : link
round and JR went for reaches.

This is the worst draft since 1978 imo
He did look slow and stiff on the clips....

Why No TE ....?
Did we not just ink like 10 defensive back before
the Draft . Hope I am Dead Wrong with the 1st pick
But you win in the Trenches Where we lost 3 starters
in the past 2 years on Defense if Bromely doesnt
show early This Draft could really start to stink .
Will Beatty scares me .
Not a fan of this pick

Frank Coyle had Kennard going in the 5 th round  
Rick in Dallas : 5/10/2014 8:48 pm : link
Ranked number 162 by Coyle in his top 300 and number 15 OLB in his position rankings. Sounds like he was drafted in the right spot by GMEN.

He's O'Brien Schofield's

my concerns are identical... however, damn it would be pretty awesome if it all worked out i.e. we sign a TE in FA, beatty bounces back... and new WR does it this year.
