Sha’Reef Rashad Is Impressing

Mike Garafolo has a great article on UDFA Sha’Reef Rashad: Sha’reef Rashad had the deep half of the field in a Cover-2 defense, so any long ball was his for the taking. Rashad claimed later he didn’t even see the receiver (Otis Lewis), just the ball, so he went up and got it for the […]

Giants Almost Had Jeremy Maclin:

From Mike Garafolo: The Giants said they didn’t trade up in the first round of this past weekend’s draft because they didn’t want to reach for a wide receiver. It turns out they were closer to reaching — and to a different player — than they let on. Before drafting North Carolina’s Hakeem Nicks with […]

Chris Steuber Grades the Giants:

From SCOUT.COM’s Chris Steuber Best Draft New York Giants The New York Giants had a great weekend; they really improved their team. In the first round, they took North Carolina WR Hakeem Nicks, who I believe will be the best WR from this year’s draft class. Nicks is a consistent pass catcher who has reliable […]

Mel Kiper Grades the Giants:

From ESPN.COM New York Giants: GRADE: B The selection of first-round wide receiver Hakeem Nicks could be a good one, but he really needs to keep his weight up to make an impact in the NFL. I like the selection of offensive tackle William Beatty in the second round and wide receiver Ramses Barden in […]

The NCAA ruled him ineligible, but granted him permission to return to the gridiron in 2007. In just two seasons with the Bearkats, […]

So Long Sinorice:

                                With the selection of Hakeem Nicks and Ramses Barden it looks like the Sinorice Moss experiment is over.  I am so excited that the Giants got these two guys.  I know rookie receivers don’t usually produce right away but […]

Andre Brown Biography

Andre Brown’s biography from giants.com: OVERVIEW After playing in a “running back by committee” situation his first three years at State, Brown finally was given his opportunity to be the team’s full-time starter as a senior. Despite his excellent playing speed, he relished his role as the team’s inside runner, dishing out more punishment than […]

Travis Beckum-Biography

Giants.com has a biography of Travis Beckum: OVERVIEW It seems that every time someone doubts Beckum’s ability, he proves everyone wrong. When he first arrived on campus, the coaching staff doubted that he would be anything more than a “warm body” sitting on the bench. After all, how many 215-pound defensive ends have ever played […]

Barden Biography

Giants.com has a biography up about Ramses Barden: The most physically imposing receiver in the 2009 NFL Draft, Barden proved in post-season all-star games and at the Combine that while he might not have played at the major college level, he is a major talent. His size, strength and long stride have scouts comparing him […]
