Gut Feeling: Linval Joseph

Let’s put it this way, I’m a proponet of drafting Best Player Available and with reports that the Giants wanted Sean Lee to fall to them at 46 and he was there and they passed on him. I think that speaks what they think of their thought about Linval Joseph.

I’ll also say this: they RAN to get their card in. So this must have been a player they rated very highly.

That’s fine. I mean I had Bruce Campbell, Taylor Mays, Charles Brown, Jimmy Clausen, Golden Tate and about 35 others rated higher.

But there is no chance that the Giants did.

There are teams who had Joseph as a fring first round prospect, clearly the Giants did.

What suprises me about this is Reese has done almost all of his early draft picking from major BCS schools, but this year he has taken two players that weren’t super productive and weren’t from BCS schools. Which is scary becuase Reese has done an excellent job in the draft so far.

I said before the draft that I just had a feeling that the Giants were going to leave me unimpressed during the draft and this has clearly happened.

I personally think Josehp is a reach.

I would have knocked over the Commissioner table to select Golden Tate or Jimmy Clausen. The Giants felt that way about Joseph.

I don’t disagree with the Giants theory…but I would have gone Derrick Morgan and gone Terrance Cody in the second round. Cody is a Monster. Joseph has HUGE upside.

But that’s two players in a row the Giants selected that are raw with big time upside.

I’m on board (kind of) with Jason Pierre Paul in the first round. I think Pierre Paul was fine to good value and Joseph might be too.

But I think the Giants passed on better players in both cases (because other teams are taking players that I think I can’┬át believe)

But let’s say this at least we’re not Bills fans.

They passed on Jimmy Clausen TWICE.

And they have no QB or OL.

They passed on Charles Brown too.

    Was rooting for Lee, Dallas just took him, so who is best avil MLB? Brandon Spikes? Was suppose to be 1st round pick, then had slow 40 time (did he pull hamstring?)

    There is also Pat Angerer, who is more then Anger.

    Just got to keep saying, In Reese we trust.

    The war is won in the trenches. At least they’re picking d-line. Two projects with good mentors and lots of competition for jobs. It’s up to the coaches now. A good rotation should keep everyone fresh. I’m enthusiastic!

  4. Steve B. says:

    So how does everyone feel if Giants go Brandon Spikes in the third? Any other MLB we should go after?
