Eight players who would change the face of the Giants.

Eight players who would change the face of the Giants.

My opinion; Ernie Accorsi couldn’t take it any longer. His team, the New York Giants were not getting much out of their Tight End position. So on draft day, Accorsi did what made him such a great GM – he move up in the draft and took the best Tight End that year out of Miami, Jeremy Shockey!

The first preseason game that Shockey played in he caught a swing pass near the Giant sideline, then rumbled toward the end zone destroying anything and everything in his way as a number of his teammates ran along cheering him on. Shockey brought an edge the Giants surely needed!

Here are some players with the edge the Giants could use!

ERIC EBRON– TIGHT END – NORTH CAROLINA. This guy would change the Giants offense – day one. He is a vertical threat with speed and soft hands like another
Tar Heel, Hakeem Nicks. He seems to turn a short pass into a long gainer, play after play. It’s been a while since the Giants have looked at the Tight End position as a weapon rather then a dink and dunk opportunity for Eli when his blocking breaks down. Eric Ebron is also part receiver and would bring a big dose of much needed excitement to Met Life Stadium.

DEE FORD – OLB – AUBURN – Cark Banks once said that no one should ever be compared to Lawrence Taylor. No one told Dee Ford that, because that is the person he most wants to play like in the pros. Smash mouth football returns to Big Blue. By the way he dominated the Senior Bowl and just could drop to the G-Men.

KYLE VAN NOY – OLB – BYU – If speed kills then this guy is serial linebacker. – Van Noy at 6’4’ reminds you of Clay Mathews with his relentless style of play because he gets to the QB from the edge or up the middle. If you look at him on You-Tube he is special. If he isn’t wearing a Giant uniform at the end of the draft to me it’s a big disappointment!

HA HA CLINTON-DIX – S – ALABAMA – How much fun would he bring to the Red White and Blue – Clinton-Dix just made another tackle, “Ha Ha.” – “Ha Ha” you just got sacked! Or “Ha Ha” is no laughing matter – the kid can play!”

TAYLOR LEWEN– LEFT TACKLE – MICHIGAN -Anyone remembers Jumbo Elliott? The massive offensive linemen from the same school. Jumbo would break the huddle and the sun would disappear over the field as he walked to the line of scrimmage. He was massive and intimidating and Taylor Lewen might be a better player. He is every bit as big with great balance and nifty footwork. Start him on the right side and if Will Beatty still struggles move him to the left side where the sun shines as well.

You heard it here first! That’s right draft them both! Let them set the tone on the right side and give them unie numbers like 75 and 75.1. The problem if any is that SCHOFIELD is 6’7” – 303. Not quite as big as Lewen who is 6’ 8” -304.

CARLOS HYDE – RUNNING BACK – OHIO STATE- 6’ – 242 – Carlos averaged 7 yards a carry this year. All down hill and all the way to Met Life Stadium! I’d draft him just for his name! “Carlos Hyde!”

MIKE EVANS –WR – TEXAS A&M – 6’5” – 225. A Plax clone! Remember how deadly the Giants offense was when Plax and Eli where on the same page, especially those deep-crossing patterns. Well, Mike Evans would bring that kind of game to the Giants opening day!

Book it Dano!

    Probably any of these guys as additions would help, assuming the coaching staff gets them on the field. Can Ebron block? Would the Giants hold someone like him back due to any blocking deficencies? I suppose with many West Coast Attacks they often use zone blocking, so a question would be whether these big Offensive Linemen can move well enough. What’s Evans 40 time? I know he’s big, can he create separation?

    Also, what’s the ‘injury’ history for these guys?

      My point is simple DP if the Giants follow the same draft pattern I think they are lost.There are just to many good young teams starting to make their move and the Giants aren’t sure in my mind what they want to be?

      Jerry Reese has said the best way to evaluate a player is by looking at his game tape which you can do via-You Tube. As far as injuries I’ll get out my stethoscope and have a look!
      Go Giants.

        I agree with you for a need to have the Giants take another look at their draft pattern as well as determine who they are moving forward, I suppose we should expect those discussions and decisions are being made.

        I have no idea what to expect offensively out of the Giants in 2014, will probably ultimately be some type of ‘hybrid’ WestCoast/TC base philosophy. I question whether existing personnel in general and along the OL specifically fit into any traditional type of West Coast attack. TC doesn’t have the time for a rebuild, he needs results now, so how do they move forward realizing TC’s probably shorten window for producing a playoff bound team?

        I would look at the Defense, recognizing all the multiple team wide and offensive needs and holes to fill, I believe a strong top 5 defense is the only chance the Giants have to get back into the playoffs in 2014. That being said, if one or more of the OLB’s or LB’s you mention can make an immediate impact, then I would focus on strengthening the linebacker core, get that weakside LB who can rush the passer and hopefully combine that with a strong Defensive Line and if the secondary solidifies and continues to improve/grow, then maybe they can make it back in 2014. Short of an overwhelming strong Defense, I just don’t believe the Offense will be in position to carry this team next year. I believe the Defense will have to.
