If the first round picks somehow ended up being

2 linebackers, Devin White and Devin Bush, would that be so horrible? Obviously, it's a little out there, or a lot out there, but given we are running a 3-4 defense now, any possibility?
If DG feels that 2 lbers are the BPA  
superspynyg : 3/19/2019 4:00 pm : link
when we pick then no. DG has shown just last year he is not afraid to use more than 1 pick at one position. Last year we drafted Hill and McIntosh!!!
2 LBs

still no QB, no RT, no ER

no thanks

prefer a trade of two 3s (this year and next year if it requires that much) for Josh Rosen

then you go Rashan Gary, Andre Dilliard and Zach Allen with picks 6, 17, 37
It wouldn't be ideal...  
Torrag : 3/19/2019 4:03 pm : link
...I'd like more balance to the roster. That said White is worthy of the #6 slot and Bush of the 17 slot so it isn't impossible though unlikely imo.
Need talent on D

At this point I don’t think it’s likely we’d use our top 2 picks like that but sign me up for any way that we can get talented guys on defense.

We run a 4-3, LB's are your ER. You've heard of LT right?

Umm I see an error here
I am good with  
Vegas Steve : 3/19/2019 4:09 pm : link
that. LB's are the heart of the 3-4 those 2 are excellent choices and our LB Corp has been a joke for years

Most likely 1 LB or 1 Edge or 1 OT the odd one out gets addressed at #37
If they warrant the value, then by all means

Or Q + Oliver

Or Oliver + Wilson

Etc

In any case  
idiotsavant : 3/19/2019 4:13 pm : link
DT contains within it maybe 5 archetypes, not just one type,

Just as "3/4 LB has more variety than just 'inside and outside'.

So your not really just repeating

We run a 3-4 not a 4-3.

Not too many LTs in this draft, are there?
Yes 3-4  
HoustonGiant : 3/19/2019 4:17 pm : link
3 lineman 4 LB's.

Your ER are your OLB.

I have a hard time even seeing seeing Bush at 17.  
barens : 3/19/2019 4:17 pm : link
But if this was a scenario, I'd be pretty pumped.

Happy if we ended up with both Devin’s, they are both plug and play LBs from day 1, Bush across from zo carter and white in the middle with Ogletree, instantly would transform our defense IMO. Both can blitz, cover and tackle, also drop into coverage in zone and are very very fast, both 3 down LBs wouldn’t ever have to take them off the field and can be interchangeable as well. Gimme, gimme gimme!!
I wrote about taking the two Devins the other day...  
M.S. : 3/19/2019 5:41 pm : link

...and thought the two picks would work really well synergistically. And given the Giants jack shit recent history with this unit I listed the reasons for the two Devins:

(A) Upgrade in dramatic fashion a very poor LBer unit;
(B) Take away the gaping, yawning soft zones downfield;
(C) Provide adept one-on-one coverage against TEs and RBs
(D) Apply significant pressure from the LBer position.
sold!
