More Thoughts On Receivers:

Matt Mosley of ESPN posted his thoughts about the Giants and possible receivers. Here is the post.

I talked to someone with the organization this morning who said that the Braylon Edwards rumors flying around are exactly that — rumors. Yes, the Giants have looked into a possible deal, but their scouts are very concerned about all his drops. When a guy flashes one season (’07) and then falls back the next year, you have to be concerned.

Burress required two defenders much of the time. The Giants aren’t sure Edwards is in that category. They certainly believe Ocho Cinco is that guy, but there are concerns about his character. The Giants just spent several years dealing with a very unpredictable personality with Burress. I don’t think they’re ready to jump back in that boat. Boldin’s the most likely candidate in a trade, but general manager Jerry Reese isn’t going to put a ridiculous package together (see the Roy Williams deal).

This isn’t a long-term answer, but I wouldn’t rule out Marvin Harrison. Eli Manning watched his older brother tear up the league with Harrison for years. From what I’m told, Eli has already put in a good word on Harrison’s behalf — as if he needed it.

In the end, I think there’s a good chance the Giants take Kenny Britt (Rutgers). They feel very familiar with him. But again, that doesn’t address the No. 1 issue. If you want a No. 1, you better head up the draft board and get Michael Crabtree. He’s the receiver who will make the most immediate impact in the NFL. Have I ever let you down before? Wait, don’t answer that.

Speaking of Crabtree, lets package some pics to our old friend Spags and go and get him. I would love to see him in Giants blue.
