The New Giants entered the 2013 NFL Draft with glaring needs at DE/CB/LB/OL/RB. With the 19th pick in the 1st round, they were assured of selecting not only a player of need, but a player of ability as well.This was a very important draft for the New York Giants organization; one that could affect their place in the NFC East for years to come.Historically, Gm Jerry Reese has had a successful track record as the Giants' GM on draft day, so why should this draft being any different. Unfortunately for some unknown reason that I still can’t grasp, Jerry Reese just might have set the Giants back with his selections.As the draft unfolded, all the pieces were falling perfectly for the Giants as each round had targeted players still available to be selected.Unfortunately, Reese ignored these signs and selected players as if he was blind-folded crossing the street.
