#23 overall picks - historical

GiantNatty : 4/18/2017 5:13 pm
Interesting to see. There are some decent players, but not a lot of all-stars. It appears as though this will be the first time the Giants pick 23rd, at least since 1968...

23 overall - ( New Window )
Mostly guys that didn't make it

Surprised it was that bad.

Pretty bad

Ty Law though
2 pretty good tackles

in Oher and Bulaga.
second round looks  
markky : 4/18/2017 8:55 pm : link
as good as the first.

looks like we could draft a future GM or head coach though.
22nd overall

Ray Guy was a first round pick.
We talk about it every year

But this is the year, find a partner and trade back.
I say fuck it and draft a safety  
DennyInDenville : 4/18/2017 11:48 pm : link
Strap up and add to the strength
I would even draft S 1 CB 2  
DennyInDenville : 4/18/2017 11:49 pm : link
And keep DRC thru 2018

Why not
Not that it matter but the three guys I really liked on that list...

...are Bowe, Shane Ray and mendenhall. Injuries derailed one of them but they could all ball.

I agree the players this year from pick 23 and pick 53 maybe further all seem to be equal in value I would trade back yes sir !
It's just one draft choice

It's entirely possible that just by chance teams were picking bad players. For example, the year we got Collins, if 23 picked Collins, instead of 33, the list would look better.

we haven't had a 23rd pick? Unless my failing eyes missed it!
Jim Jeffcoat Jeff Hartings

Jim Jeffcoat was an outstanding DL.Jim had more than 100 sacks in his career.

Jeff Hartings was a superb OL who made the Pro Bowl,and was first team All Pro.

What about moving up

for McCafferty? Have no idea what that would take but he is a game changer. Did anyone see that video of his workout? His feet were as fast as Bruce Lee's hands.
