Salomone: Fact Ė Itís going to be like Christmas in July when the Giants can unwrap Lawrence, plug in the batteries, and let him rip in training camp. Shaun Rogers has long been the largest human to come through here since Iíve been covering the team (slightly ahead of Linval Joseph), but Lawrence might take the cake. He is also incredibly athletic. Lawrence is going to have a major impact because pass-rushing comes in many forms. Itís not just about the outside linebackers screaming off the edge; you need interior pressure. I canít wait to see him go against the likes of Jon Halapio, Spencer Pulley, Will Hernandez and Kevin Zeitler this summer. Thatís a lot of power right there.
I am very much looking forward

if the Giants had him as a GM during the Reese years we might have had another ring. Reese wasted a lot of Eli's prime years with his "potential" picks.
