Instant Analysis: Greg Jones

The Giants selected Michigan State linebacker Greg Jones in the 6th round. Our prospect profile is here. He can play all three positions. Where he fits, is another question. Might be too short and too thin for inside and strongside. Best fit might be weakside. Wherever he fits best, he will be a very good special teams player. He has sideline to sideline range. He can drop into coverage.  He’s athletic and a hard worker. This is a good pick. Thought he was going to be a 4th round pick. Get him in the 6th. Good value. Does he start right away? Probably not. But he can come in on passing downs, and make an impact on special teams.

    I Could honestly see him as Middle LB

    Slide Jon Goff to strongside, and now we have an athletic MLB that can cover the deep middle in the tampa 2, that we were consistently burned at last year.

    I thought he go 3 or 4. To get him in the 6th is a great job by the Giants, I could see him starting, but most likely he will compete for a job.

    And now that we have a healthy LB, I would have no problem if the Giants grabbed Mark Herzlich now.

    Also I really like FB Henry Hynoski

    Wishful thinking that they will be our next two picks in the 6th.

    I don’t want to here any more complaining about Reese ever! Greg Jones in the second half of the 6th round!?!? AMAZING!

    Huge Spartan fan here just letting giants fans know that this pick is a total steal. Phenomenal run stopper with a great motor. A harder worker on and off the football field there is none. Needs to work on coverage ability, but will learn to do anything in the league and will set the pace around his teammates with his work ethic. And once he gets playing time, he will lead your team in tackles.

    How the hell did this guy get picked in the 6th round? He was an absolute beast at MSU- I hated playing them the last 4 years. So what i he is 10 pounds underweight- he’ll be playing in the NFL for a long time.

    This guy’s a tackling machine, I think he has the potential to be the biggest contributor in this draft class.
