2015 Giants re-draft grade

DanMetroMan : 5/14/2018 10:48 am
New York Giants
2015 grade: C+

The skinny: The Giants took tackle Ereck Flowers in the first round, which hasn't exactly worked out. He's been a starter, but he's struggled mightily. They are moving him from left tackle to right tackle this season, but he was also floated around the league in trade talks. The best pick in this draft was second-round safety Landon Collins, who is a big part of their defense in the secondary. That's a big hit for the Giants. The bad news is that none of the four picks after him are still on the roster. That means he's the only sure starter in 2018.

How I did: I liked the pick of pass rusher Owamagbe Odighizuma in the third round, but he was let go last summer. I questioned the decision to trade up for Collins, who I thought was more of a box safety. That's a big miss. My third-day gem was seventh-round tackle Bobby Hart, who did start 21 games for the Giants, including seven last season before being benched. He was let go after the season and signed with the Bengals.

New grade: D

are both D's only because of Beckham and Collins, otherwise F's.
No draft with Odell is a D

I donít care if all the other picks were cut in training camp , Odell alone makes the draft higher than that

I loved the Odi pick in the 3rd round and I was against trading up for Collins because I thought that he was a Calvin Pryor type of SS. I actually wanted to take Odighizuwa in the 2nd round that year.

Agreed getting a HOF caliber WR makes the grade a B regardless of the other picks.
These are the only draft grades that matter

re-draft upgrade from C+ to B+
I look forward to getting out of the wilderness

And actually start picking some good players in the late rounds and UDFA again.
I was a big fan of the first 3 picks

Especially thought Odighizuwa was an absolute steal if he was healthy.

I liked the pick of Flowers, his tape was particularly impressive but I always thought his best position, at least early, was RT. I thought he could be a very good RT and then they could maybe move him to the left side. It's unfortunate that he was really rushed into the LT role and I think that part of his struggles can be traced to that. However, there were stretches of great LT play last year from him...great play, not just good.

If he can get over his disappointment at the perceived demotion to the RT side, this could be a great thing for his career...assuming he is on the team when the season starts and he wins the job. It's a big season for him.

I really did not understand the Mykelle Thompson and Geremy Davis picks. But Hart I thought was a good gamble in the 7th.

How can 2014

be a D if it produced 3 starters for 4 years?

Granted only one excelled, but we have had drafts that only produced one starter....
