1. TE Kyle Pitts, Florida
2. Edge Ronnie Perkins, Oklahoma
3. CB Benjamin St. Juste, Minnesota
4. WR Seth Williams, Auburn
6. C/G Michael Menet, Penn State
6. Edge Tarron Jackson, Coastal Carolina
As a side note, the rational for selecting Menet, Lombardo says the following:
“The Giants started Nick Gates at center, for the first time in his football career, last season to mixed results.
Meanwhile, former second-round pick Will Hernandez regressed dramatically under a new coaching staff as fifth-round rookie Shane Lemieux was a colossal disappointment, replacing Hernandez at left guard.”
Very uninformed, short-sighted analysis here. Gates was the best lineman in the team last season, and performed extremely well after a bumpy first week. “Mixed results” is just flat out wrong.
Hard for Lemieux, as a 5th round pick, to be a “colossal disappointment.”No one expected him to come in and be a finished product. He need some development. I’d argue that as a 5th round rookie, despite growing pains, he performed admirably.
This is what is frustrating about the beat writers for this team: jumping to conclusions, and/or making incorrect statements. Link
