One week to go...Draft Questions

ryanmkeane : 4/20/2017 10:55 am
A week to go, Jordan's top 10 list out, Sy and Dave's scouting reports near completion and we have a ton of info...here are some of the questions I think it'd be good to hear from BBI:

Best case scenario pick?
Most realistic/guy you'd want pick?
Absolute throw the remote pick?

I'll go with:

Best case: OJ Howard
Most realistic/guy I want: Davis or Cunningham (split on these two)
Remote throw: Taco Charlton

Thoughts?
Good choices

Best: Reddick
Realistic: Davis
Remote: Watson

Charlton wouldn't be a remote thrower for me since I expect the G-Men wouldn't pick him if he couldn't be comparable to JPP in the long run. I'm with you on not expecting/wanting him to be the guy though. I'm more and more ambivalent on Wormley also. I'm getting higher on Carlos Watkins as the DT pick.

I somewhat agree...but for whatever reason I've just been "meh" about Charlton from the get go. I actually don't even have a valid explanation, just not excited about the guy.
Hmmm...

haven't heard Watkins' name much..until I just looked him up as #94 for Clemson and realized he was always in the backfield for them. Good call.
Based on last  
oldog : 4/20/2017 11:03 am : link
three years, in all three cases I'll go along with Reese's choices.

10.5 sacks and 12.5 tackles for loss last year. 6'3'' 305.

He seems like a perfect fit for us imo.
Best case- McCaffrey  
Mr Brightside : 4/20/2017 11:08 am : link

Remote throw- any reach for a DT

you've been on the OL train throughout the draft process...can't blame you. Will you be a bit disappointed if we pass on all 4 of your OL guys? (Assuming 2 or 3 are available)

I misread the remote part. I thought it was remote pick, not remote throw. I will edit my response to be:

Lamp
Bolles
Any QB
I cant pick btwn my top pick so I am offering both  
chopperhatch : 4/20/2017 11:18 am : link

Doubledeuce22 : 4/20/2017 11:36 am : link

Absolute throw the remote pick? Christian McCaffery
OK  
PaulN : 4/20/2017 11:37 am : link

1a - McCaffrey hands down

Realistic: Njoku, Lamp, Ramcyzk, Bolles, or Robinson

Throw the remote: any QB or short WR
Davis  
lugnut : 4/20/2017 11:49 am : link
Assuming it's Jarrad and not Corey, not sure why guys are saying this is realistic. When's the last time we went LB in the first? And an oft-injured LB at that?
Mine:  
old man : 4/20/2017 11:57 am : link
Best: Garrett ( I can dream, right?)
Realistic:Njoku
Worst: Any QB
As a UM fan, I hope I'm wrong, but Taco= Meh to me.
Alrighty....  
GuzzaBlue : 4/20/2017 11:59 am : link
Best case scenario pick? Jonathan Allen (please god)

UM fan here too and feel the same. I don't hate the pick, but I do not see him being a dominant player at all. Maybe a Kiwanuka type of impact at best.
Jonathan Allen  
GuzzaBlue : 4/20/2017 12:04 pm : link
man I hope he drops and if he gets to the late teens, I think I'd make the move.
Watching Allen play...  
ryanmkeane : 4/20/2017 12:52 pm : link
how does this guy not go in the top 10?

Worries about his shoulders. Didn't blow people away at the combine. I still think he's the best player in the draft.

Best: Allen

Realistic: Lamp

Remote: Kizer
++++++++  
MOOPS : 4/20/2017 1:13 pm : link
Best: OJ Howard. Future perennial All-Pro.

Most Realistic: Lamp. Not a sexy move, but best at his position.

Throw the Remote: Mahomes. No. Just no.

Kizer may just bring the remote throw to another level.

There has been a lot of talk about him sliding. I still don't get it. He's right behind Garrett in my mind. I doubt he makes it out of the top 15.
I'm not sure where this falls  
area junc : 4/20/2017 2:26 pm : link
under your categories, but if the rumor of Corey Davis sliding is true, Giants may not be able to resist. Groom him behind Marshall and, while nobody would ever say it, Odell insurance.
