Who's Your Favorite Player In This Draft.

Brown Recluse : 3/22/2019 11:45 am
Not necessarily the best player in your opinion, but your favorite.

Last year, mine was Quenton Nelson. I like offensive linemen. One of my favorite Giant players is Rich Seubert.

I just loved everything about Nelson and thought he was the second best player in the entire draft behind Barkley. And like Barkley, one of those "transcendent" talents that not only an upgrade at his own position but also improves the players around him. Just a huge, nasty, impenetrable wall of a guy that I envisioned tossing defenders around like rag dolls and crushing skulls like "The Mountain" from GoT. I know its an awful idea to draft a Guard at 2 and this isn't a knock on the selections of Barkley and Hernandez because I love them both, but I kind of wanted it to happen (lucky for you losers I'm not the GM).

Thats the kind of player I'm talking about. Who's the guy this year that you like so much - forget draft position and logic or reason - you'd love this guy on the team.

This year my favorite player is Devin White. There's an article on defenderdawgs thread called Devin White: Can LSU linebacker have Saquon Barkley-like impact on NY Giants' defense?. I highly suggest you read it.

Again, probably not the greatest idea to draft him at 6, especially when we are so short on pass-rushers, but I think he's the perfect fit for this defense and team. Not only is he a fantastic player but like Nelson I just feel like he makes everyone around him better, vs the players we're used to seeing on this team that need other players around them to make them better. I love his attitude. I love his leadership and the fact that he's not afraid to step up and take charge.

The purpose of this isn't to say I think the Giants will draft him at 6 - I'm fairly certain it will be QB or ER, but I just want him on this team (I will however, scream like a little girl if they pick him)

Who's your guy this year?

Same here.

My ideal scenario is one of the top ER's drop to us at 6, and T.J. is there at 17 and in Giant Blue this year.

devin white

these guys are football players. changed positions and performed.
Q Williams  
Thegratefulhead : 3/22/2019 12:21 pm : link
No one is close in my opinion, he is all world. Its him then 4 more that are elite, then another group about 10 deep that are all solid.
Josh Allen.  
MOOPS : 3/22/2019 12:30 pm : link
He'll be creating havoc in opponent's backfield for the next decade.
Devin Bush - LB - Michigan

I praying at least 1 of these guys is wear Blue next year  
Vegas Steve : 3/22/2019 12:45 pm : link
Since Josh Allen will be off the board

D. Bush
T J Hockenson A TE who can crush the DE on a block or threaten the deep middle of the field

I would be happy with D. White
But I believe Bush has the higher Football IQ. He's much better in coverage and Whites Equal in tacking and blitzing

Yep. I know he's not LT, but he reminds me of LT.
He's a maniac on the field. Love this damn player.
Wilkins. No downside, high character

Saquon 1...

.. and Nelson 2 for me last year. This year tough to say, there's a lot of guys I really like. I really like Murray,
Q Williams, Ed Oliver, Hockenson. But it's mostly based on Youtube and what I read lol.

Would love to see a RUssell Wilson type talent paired with Barkley and give the Giants a new dimension.

RawhideMarshall : 3/22/2019 12:57 pm : link
allow me to make the case for "the other Devin". After a strong season as a true freshman, Devin Bush was, in my opinion, the MVP of the team the past two seasons. He is an ideal fit for ILB in an odd front, has top-tier athletic ability and a nose for the football. He will also make an impact as a pass rusher. I would love to see his name called at 17. He has talent that you build your defense around.

Neither will happen, but a man can dream ...

TJ Hockenson ...  
Manny in CA : 3/22/2019 2:19 pm : link

Bavaro was just a plain ole beast that crushed people; Shockey was just as mean, but as fast as some CBs ! (His problem was between his ears).

Hockenson is more Shockyest. (Hopefully he doesn't have Jeremy's head problems).

Devin White No Matter What
My favorite players in this draft  
mavric : 3/22/2019 3:35 pm : link
Devin White (he will be a game changer)
Garrett Bradbury (middle of the o-line, sandwiched between Hernandez and Zeitler would be incredible)
Hakeem Butler (crazy length - longer than Plaxico)
T.J. Hockenson (best blocking TE in the draft in more than 20 years - put him alongside Wheeler and you'd think Chad was a pro-bowler)
Daniel Jones (tall, cerebral, talented QB in the mold of a young Eli)
T.J.  
jeff57 : 3/22/2019 3:40 pm : link
Hockenson.

Both will be good pro's, i'd be happy with either.

Devin White at 6 and Hockenson even with a little trade up to 14 or so I would be estatic. Both will be game changers

Devin White


He seems like the sort of player that really has sideline to sideline speed and tackles like a machine. His sack #'s are low but considering his skill set, maybe that just wasn't his job in CFB.

Giants will grab a QB at #6 or get a great defensive player.
Dwayne Haskins  
Torrag : 3/22/2019 10:18 pm : link
He's impressed me more in interviews and how he communicates and carries himself than any QB prospect in a long time. Factor in his arm and instincts for the position and I'll be surprised if we have a chance to draft him at #6.
Daniel Jones

Harry Carson  
royhobbs7 : 3/23/2019 1:45 pm : link
Those who remember that MLB Harry Carson was the first piece in turning around the Giants' defense to be stalwart, know who the next great Giants' LB could be.

Without question, it would be Devin White. He would help to bring our defense back to respectability again!!!!
He's a sideline-to-sideline monster....
RE: Devin White  
BigBlueJuice : 3/23/2019 2:01 pm : link
I liked devin white from the start with pick 6 then a read an article of him saying he will want 100 mill in 5 years cause he believes to be that disruptive, which i like but at same time you shouldnt be motivated by money but by championships. I dont believe in contracts over 100 mill unless it is a qb. Even then shorter contracts should be set to keep players competitive. Just my thoughts.

Heís the player I want on a selfish level much like Barkley last year. I canít wait to watch him play and I really think Murray is going to make a lot of people look very very dumb when all is said n done.

Remember that name.
Easily Josh Allen  
Bluesbreaker : 3/23/2019 5:59 pm : link
He is an ascending player and pretty relentless as he fills
out gets in the weight room I could see him as a 15-20
sack pass rusher .he can play the run some and isn't the
worst in coverage .
Josh Allen too  
Danny80 : 3/23/2019 7:55 pm : link
Could be a Kalil Mack or even Von Miller-type force. More versatile than Bosa. He can drop back in coverage when needed. Probably quicker turning the corner on the pass rush and more natural athlete.
Hockenson  
Go Terps : 3/23/2019 9:58 pm : link
If the Giants picked him at 6 I'd be thrilled.

I'm on the Josh Allen train as well.
For all the wrong reasons I watched a lot of CFB  
BlueLou'sBack : 3/24/2019 1:48 am : link
the past 3 years. Not studying the players as NFL prospects, but just some guys play in a way that jumps off the screen.

Saquon Barkley
Ed Oliver
Dwayne Haskins

Their combination of talent and fierce competitiveness just shined to me.
