Devin White

MarineMan : 3/15/2019 12:32 pm
I know a lot may disagree. This guy is a play maker and in that 3-4 the linebackers are the key.

This guy has good range at the run and the ability to cover and make up ground. I know there are some on here that like Bosa.

IMHO Allen, White, Sweat, Gary. I just think there is to much hype with Bosa. Alright Fellow BBIers, your thoughts.

If defense are the first two picks J. Allen/D. White, If White is gone Z. Woods or N. Adderly.

If they go offense Haskins/Ford.

Ok Bombs away!!!
No bombs away

This is the guy I want. This guy is a true 3 down MLB who can go sideline to sideline. A tackling machine.

When was the last time we had a LB with this type of skill set?
He's my fourth best player in this Draft  
Anakim : 3/15/2019 12:34 pm : link
I would have absolutely no hesitations taking him at 6
My 5th rated player  
jeff57 : 3/15/2019 12:35 pm : link
Would take Sweat over him, but otherwise would not have a problem.
Devin Bush wouldn't be a bad consolation prize at 17  
figgy2989 : 3/15/2019 12:36 pm : link
Can you imagine getting a Gary or Sweat at 6 and Bush at 17? God damn, defense would have a completely new outlook.
Allen #6 and White #17

top pass rusher at that pick. White's a terrific player, though, so how can anyone object.

Doubt Bush lasts to 17, but yes that would be an awesome result

Amtoft : 3/15/2019 12:46 pm : link
amazing and I would love to draft him. The problem I have is we need other spots more like a 3-4 pass rush DE or a 3-4 Edge rusher or a CB or an OL, etc He seems like he would be a luxury for us at this point, but I wouldn't hate the move and think he would be amazing for us.

Not sure why you brought up Bosa, but he is a beast man. Don't let the hype fool you. Guy is legit.
White is the guy I want - a perfect fit for us  
PatersonPlank : 3/15/2019 12:46 pm : link
and in a position of need
I would not be mad at  
Keaton028 : 3/15/2019 12:47 pm : link
all with White at 6. We are transitioning to a tougher culture, and hed fit that mold easily.

Re-watching games last year like Tennessee, Carolina and both Eagles games- we were playing and tackling scared. Guys like White would fix that quickly.
D. White, He should be in the mix  
RAIN : 3/15/2019 12:48 pm : link
If we cant get Allen, Q.Williams, or Bosa

I believe he may be the best value after those guys, for todays game. Lbs like him are making bank... and they make a huge impact in both phases of the game. Hes a leader and identity maker on that side of the ball. We need that.

My only hesitation in going defense  
DonnieD89 : 3/15/2019 12:49 pm : link
at #17 is the talent that may be available at OT. We still need to fill RT position and if a Jonah Williams or Andre Dillard sits there at #17, I really have to think about it before going defense again. Dillard could very well be the future at LT, once Solders contract is up.

Keaton, that is a great example. Derrick Henry rushed for like 200 yards and most of his carries were right up the middle. Having an impact LB in the middle changes the mindset that you can do that.

Damn, I want the draft here already.

I understand. When a second namesake comes in to the NFL. They dont always live up to the expectations. Now there are some exceptions. But i do understand.

Honestly he may be better than his brother. He looks amazing to me.

Pep22 : 3/15/2019 12:55 pm : link
world, I'd go:

Rosen for our RD3 and additional compensation next year if needed

RD1 DE Rashan Gary
RD1a OT Andre Dilliard
RD3 LB Blake Cashman
RD2

I am going to take another look. I seen a few games but was more on the QB and WR.
I prefer him over Haskins  
5BowlsSoon : 3/15/2019 12:58 pm : link
Say no to Haskins!
Devin White is awesome.  
Brown Recluse : 3/15/2019 12:59 pm : link
I would love to see him in Giants blue but personally, I just think the Giants really need to fix this pass rush. Right now they don't have one. Carter is a nice player but he hasn't really proven anything yet, and Golden is a huge question mark as well. They need a legitimate pass-rushing presence or the defense isn't going to work...just like it didn't last year.
If we are not going Qb,

Assuming Gary over Sweat at #6, the D would be Michigan West, with their top D talent from each of the past three seasons:

Peppers (best player on Michigan's D in 2016)
Gary (best player on Michigan's D in 2017)
Bush (best player on Michigan's D in 2018)

And all 3 were teammates in 2016.

With Bush, the Giants haven't had an ILB with Bush's speed in forever. Huge upgrade over Goodson.

Bush is a great player, but he isn't White. White's closing speed is blinding.
i think white is more of a 4-3 than 3-4 guy

and i'd take bush over him every day of the week

And they could take Winovich at 37.
Id like  
Giantfootball025 : 3/15/2019 2:24 pm : link
White, Ferrell, Risner, Miles Boykin as the first 4 but Id take

Sweat, Bush as the alternative. Issue is though still are we taking a QB because thatll change a few things.

Haskins, Bush, best avail OT?

I really enjoy having so many picks honestly. Sucks we are in this position, but with the Rangers, Knicks, and Yanks Ive seen the rebuilding process (Knicks for whats felt like forever) I enjoy rooting for the younger players and watching them and the team grow together.

Platos : 3/15/2019 2:33 pm : link

take the guy who can be a perennial pro-bowler high.

I'd be fine using a package of picks to move up from 17 to wherever to get him (assuming we take a stud ER at 6). That would be a ridiculous start to revamping this defense.
Sideline to Sideline Linebacker  
Bernie : 3/15/2019 3:32 pm : link
Given the way the game is now played, you need a sideline to sideline linebacker that can play in space. I believe this is as important as an edge rusher. If Devin White is that guy, grab him at 6.
