FYI.....

with one week to go I am hearing that Zach Cunningham is one of the targets at 23.

Although I have to mitigate this with the fact that my source (who works for a premier player agent) was way off base last year on the draft and the Giants may be getting good at blowing smoke through the league circles.

If we are gonna take a LB,

I'd much rather grab someone like Davis, Bowser, or Reddick if he was there.
based on Dave Te's scouting reports

I hope someone's blowing smoke up your sources a$$!
So Zach Cunningham  
Jon in NYC : 4/20/2017 11:53 am : link
may or may not be the guy.

Haha, just busting chops.

I think with Reese at his pro day, there's a strong indicator that the Giants are very interested. He checks a lot of boxes that they look for in a first.

I get the info and pass it along. No more and no less. I don't know anyone in the Giants organization.
Would not be my favorite pick  
bigblue12 : 4/20/2017 11:56 am : link
but thanks for the info.
There are probably 4-5 guys the Giants  
AnnapolisMike : 4/20/2017 11:58 am : link
are focused on. It's fun hearing things like this and wondering if the is true or BS.
Well I sure hope this is a smoke screen  
PatersonPlank : 4/20/2017 12:02 pm : link
We have enough linebackers who need free space to work. What we need is a linebacker who is strong at the point of contact, and can fight through blocking lineman to disrupt plays.
Thanks for the info

TLG. He is also #4 on Ranaan's most likely list

Ya think? (See: Floyd, Leonard)
Nope

(Conklin, Jack)
If they really like this guy, there is a realistic chance they could  
PatersonPlank : 4/20/2017 12:33 pm : link
get him in Rd #2. To me, picking Cunningham at #23 would be a reach.
But I thought the Giants never take linebackers in the first round?

How do you know they were blowing smoke about Floyd? He was off the board already when they picked

What Mook said. No way of knowing they were blowing smoke considering he was taken before us.

ryanmkeane : 4/20/2017 12:57 pm : link
I don't think Cunningham needs free space to work. Vandy wasn't exactly world beaters up front and he still led the SEC in tackles during his tenure there. Guy is a really good player.
Giants want clean  
ryanmkeane : 4/20/2017 12:59 pm : link
players who love football and are highly productive in rounds 1 and 2. Cunningham fits that mold (for either 1 or 2...and i don't think he falls to 55 but if he does you sprint to the podium)
The longer you  
ryanmkeane : 4/20/2017 1:01 pm : link
look at a player, you can find a few holes here and there and end up talking yourself out of it. By and large, Cunningham is athletic, never injured, and always around the ball. Look at the tape.
Mook & Anak  
Big Rick in FL : 4/20/2017 2:13 pm : link
They weren't blowing smoke about Floyd. Hitdog on the draft thread basically said Floyd was the pick. Hitdog is batting 1000. Don't think I've ever seen him get anything wrong about the Giants.
Yeah  
ryanmkeane : 4/20/2017 2:22 pm : link
I'm not sure what all this nonsense is the past week about Floyd being a smokescreen. Everyone on earth knew we liked him.

That's what they'd like you to believe!
Missed it...

He has a beard and sports a manssiere. So not clean.....
My source is telling me ...  
Beer Man : 4/20/2017 4:10 pm : link
the team is almost certain to draft someone in the first round.
One of the guys that Jerry Reese personally visited  
David in LA : 4/20/2017 4:16 pm : link
may be our pick in round, but he also might not be our pick. Riveting.
I think Cunningham is a solid player  
Rjanyg : 4/20/2017 6:59 pm : link
Many draft guides and mocks have him going anywhere from 16-32. Every team has different criteria in value with the draft. The Giants want clean, athletic players with production that play against quality competition. Team captains are a plus.

Cunningham checks many boxes.
Is this the same source

and walked away contented.

I'm not at all interested

in Cunningham at 23.

He just isn't a first rounder in my (admittedly limited) view.

If they go LB I find Bowser and Davis to be much more exciting options.

That said, I'm starting to feel that they may go DL.

Seems that way to me, too.
Ok then....  
ThatLimerickGuy : 4/20/2017 10:19 pm : link
Nevermind.
We appreciate inside sources and info.  
Jon in NYC : 4/20/2017 10:25 pm : link
But if you preface it with "this guy has been way off in the past" it's tough to take it very seriously.

Just my .02.
The two guys who some have tagged for us  
Jay in Toronto : 4/20/2017 10:43 pm : link
Cunningham and Robinson that I can't get excited about.

But the Giants know WAY more than I do, so I hope it's for the best.

ehhh, don't let the naysayers discourage you. Most of us appreciate the insider info, particularly at this time of year (even when its turns out wrong, it keeps things interesting on this sight).
