1. Two of "my guys" are Jalen Reeves-Maybin and Deatrich Wise Jr. JRM obviously was hurt for the majority of last year but before that was being discussed as a Day 2 pick. DW Jr. didn't make the jump in his senior year that was expected of him.

But I was just wondering what you think of these two prospects as Day 3 options for the Giants.

2. Of Ramczyk and Bolles, who do you prefer and why?

3. Thoughts on FS Marcus Williams of Utah? And what about Desmond King of Iowa? Could he be a better fit at FS than CB?

My bad, it's much easier to answer an actual question...

How do you project these guys to pan out? I'm particularly interested if David Jones is a guy you like or not and what you think Sprinkle's ceiling is.

Thank you, sir.
2 Questions, thanks Dave  
SirYesSir : 4/16/2017 7:55 pm : link
1. I would kill to get us an MLB that can be a game-changing 3 down player.
I know you've spoken about your fondness for the two top rated MLB's in this class, Foster from Alabama and Davis from Florida. Are there any other guys you think stand out as potential strong additions at MLB?
Possibly
--Raekwon McMillian from Ohio State
--Anthony Walker Jr from Northwestern.

While Cunningham and Reddick have wider skill sets, do you see either of them ending up as an MLB down the road

2. I saw you mentioned Craig Winston and David Jones as "draft me" guys. As a Richmond grad, what have you seen from the Spiders program that has brought some of their guys into the league (like Kerry Wynn) so ready to compete?

Who in your opinion is a sure fire pick? Disclude OJ Howard from this
Jarrad Davis ...  
robbieballs2003 : 4/16/2017 8:09 pm : link
I have been a fan of his and like him way better than Cunningham. Davis, to me, just brings that old school LB mentality. He flies around the field. There is also buzz with him similar to what was happening with Beckham late in the process where almost nobody connected the two. Can you elaborate on the negatives with him expecially medicals that we may not be aware of? I know he has had a few different types of injuries but nothing that should be a long term concern. At least that is what the average fan can see. And, where would he rank in terms of the Giants board? I am just using this as an example but if Howard was available I am sure Howard would be above Davis on the Giants board. So, with realistic players that would be available what would it take for him to actually be the pick? Thanks as always.

Not robotic-stiff, but just a little tight in his stride and overall movement.

2) If he is a little stiff, does it really matter?

Not a question on a specific person, but on the NY Giants inability to draft (or develop) an Offensive Lineman in the later rounds. It is amazing how many picks they have used with little to no results to show for it.

If it is a scouting issue, why aren't the scouts replaced ?

Your "All Draft Me Team"  
uncledave : 4/17/2017 3:36 pm : link
Loved that thread brother and really appreciate what you do. When I was a teen and fell in love with scouting, nfldraftscout was my encyclopedia (along with following threads on BBI and watching lots of tape). Glad the site still operates the original platform even though CBS wants to redirect me every time.

Guys I love you mentioned: Samaje Perrine, Curtis Samuel, Dion Dawkins, Haason Reddick... but the gold stars are for Jordan Evans (how he was snubbed a combine invite is beyond me), Brian Allen, Tanoh Kpassagnon and last but certainly not least Grover Stewart (what a prospect).

I'm a bit surprised about Jarrad Davis given the injury history, his motor and leadership combined with on field talent galore makes sense but how can you justify spending a first round pick on a guy with such a history?

A few names I want to throw your way and see what your take on:

Greyson Lambert QB Georgia
Brian Hill RB Wyoming
Michael Clark WR Marshall
Colin Jeter TE LSU
Jerry Ugokwe OT William & Mary
Greg Pyke OG Georgia
Al-Quadin Muhammad DE U Miami
Eli Ankou DT UCLA and/or Rashaad Coward DT Old Dominion
Matt Milano OLB BC
Tanner Vallejo ILB Boise State
Treston DeCoud CB Oregon State
Jadar Johnson SS Clemson
Delano Hill FS Michigan

I've come to like these guys a good bit while doing my routine this time of year. They are primarily day 3 guys so figured it might be a change of pace for the guys here on the board always looking for new names. Thanks again for all you do and I look forward to your involvement in this forums future.
DAVE TE ANSWERS-FOR ANAKIM

But I was just wondering what you think of these two prospects as Day 3 options for the Giants.

2. Of Ramczyk and Bolles, who do you prefer and why?

3. Thoughts on FS Marcus Williams of Utah? And what about Desmond King of Iowa? Could he be a better fit at FS than CB?
1-Reeves-Maybin has been a bit of a disappointment. Earlier in his career, I thought he was going to emerge, showing great downhill ability and recognition skills, but he seems to lack courage vs. the run. Besides, with his bad shoulder, he’s yet to get medical clearance. At slightly over six-feet, I doubt that he fits the Giants scheme, but looks more like camp fodder at the moment.

2-I pretty much rested my case on those two linemen in an earlier post. If I had to be tied down and take one? Bolles, as I am not one that likes linemen with hip problems. To me, a lineman does not need to be fast – just strong and have the ability to slide laterally. Still, I will “keep a light on” for Lamp as a Giant in Round One.

3-I just wrapped up a bunch of days at Utah. I’m a big fan of Asiata and Brian Allen, but on Marcus? Solid performer who should have gone back to school, as he needs to not only bulk up more, but dedicated hours in the film room. He’s a solid playmaker and has has good “prick” in him with those hands, showing the ability to jostle for the ball or knock a receiver off stride with a grab or shove without being caught. Right now, the Value Board places him in round four.

ANSWER
Might not get to Flowers until next week-heading to Wyoming after Utah State, Southern Utah & BYU visits this week to see my fave QB.
As for Solari, I prefer to withhold judgement. Why? Well, if anyone got excited about Giants OL play last year, it had to be an opposing defender. Second, look at the track marks (brown spots) he had in his undies after two ill-advised years (2006-07) as KC's offensive coordinator

ANSWER
Jones is one of my sleepers! I’ve been pushing him hard on Foxboro, as he not only can fly to the ball, he has great hands. I’d take him by 5, but most have him at the tailend due to the foot injury he suffered. Evans might not get drafted, but he’s better than any LB on the Giants first unit. Sprinkle never got a warm fuzzy feeling from me, as he’s a going through the motions player. As much as folks like McCaffrey, I’m a Pumphrey guy – reminds me of an old Cardinal, Stump Mitchell and with the success that Woodhead & Sproles have had, I see the same career route for that Aztec.

2.
ANSWER
McMillian does some good things on the field, but he does have recognition lapses. When Darron Lee & Perry played on the flank in 2015, that issue was not exposed, but without them, he had a lot of trouble getting off blocks (yeah, he had a decent amount, but a lot were pile jumpers). Folks say Round 2, but I’d keep my card on the table if he came up for me to pick. Reddick is a perfect fit inside in a 3-4 scheme and Pittsburgh would clamor to get him to insert next to Shazier, but I keep hearing the Lions are all over him. Cunningham is too weak to play on my team. Him, Humphrey (Bama), Tabor, Lattimore, all guys that are getting lots of ink, leaving scouts wondering why. Dog me on this, but my top OLBs are in this order; Reddick, Bowser, Watt, McKinley, Ryan Anderson (yes, over Williams), Cunningham. Now, Anderson is the wild card you want to see in a Big Blue uni!

Lamp over anyone expected to fall to the bottom third of Round One, hands down.
Would only consider Cunningham on late Day 2 action – not my type of backer.
No, they need to get Lamp & if not, a linebacker in the Jarrad Davis, Tyson Bowser mold. There are enough tight ends to pick from in Day three that offer very good value (Hodges in 4, Saubert & Roberts 6/7, Hollister 7)

ANSWER
Yes, he looks like Tank McNamara, but those are pretty narrow legs on him. Besides, he’s dropped over 11% of his passes & go look at the Pitt game last year. Elijah Price made him his girlfriend. I still reiterate – coaches need to park their butts in stadiums on Saturdays rather than wait for Indy, where they fall in love with a guy in DVDs. Here’s the thing – he’s as raw as Bucky Hodges & has the same agility skills. Yet, boards have the Hurricane in 1 & the Tech kid in 4 – go figure.

All indicated are the Eagles want Cook at 14 - good riddance. Actually, the Giants are looking more at big backs, early day three guys. If Cook drops to the Giants, he will continue to fall, but again, I don't see him getting past #14.

ANSWER
Actually, I spent a lot of time with this kid as he trained at Toby Wright’s (ex Rams safety) where I now live in Arizona. Yes, he’s going to fly off the board by Round 5 and boy can he connect from anywhere (NCAA record 115 field goals). He won’t be the only kicker taken, as Jake Elliott is a sixth round guy out of Memphis & Giants have been in on Stanford’s Conrad Ukropina.

ANSWER
I usually go by the three-year plan Year One-Get your feet wet; Year Two-Apply what you learned/learn from your mistakes; Year Three-Produce or the draft is where they find a replacement.
I’m a big Forrest Lamp fan, think Bucky Hodges would be a steal/mismatch for CBS/hedging that if Brandon Marshall melts down, Hodges steps in. I think Jarrad Davis is an excellent MLB, but later in the draft – three steals – OLB/DE Ryan Anderson-Bama, CB/FS Brian Allen-Utah & WR Kenny Golladay-NIU. Whoever gets these guys, gets great value.

Fox Sports Article - ( New Window )
ANSWER
That freaking RKO reporter stole my line! I told scouts while I was there that this kid is the purr-fect Patriot, like Edelman & Hogan, White & the rest of those motley crew of versatile guys. I was actually there to get a look on the safety, Casey DeAndrade, but Crosson blew me away. He tore Lehigh up for three scores & 184 yards on 24 runs, but boy, that TD catch inside the 10 was sweet! I stood around for the Maine game & he reals off a 35-yard TD scamper that saw him break five tackles. You know Bill – if not drafted, nothing good gets past him out of New England. UNH has not had a talent like him in years. Shame the conference only thought he was worth second team honors.

Not a question on a specific person, but on the NY Giants inability to draft (or develop) an Offensive Lineman in the later rounds. It is amazing how many picks they have used with little to no results to show for it. If it is a scouting issue, why aren't the scouts replaced ?

I gotta site the 5th ammendment. I work with them, who they hire is their choice. Do I agree with their choices? The reason I've been doing this since 1968 for the league is simple. I am Dr. Watson - I do all the research, leave no stone unturned, make a suggestion & take a back seat.
The GM plays Sherlock Holmes - makes the decision, gets the glory or the rotten tomatoes tossed at him. Unless a scout makes a total ass of himself on campus, it's the team's Human Resources department that has to deal with them
