Continued Verification of UltimateNYG Draft Analysis

This site has made a point of verifying our track record in draft predictions.  Wonder, the Draft analyst for UltimateNYG NY Giants blog, has once again bested the GMs using their own option as a filter of performance. GMs had a 5th year option on Round 1 picks from the 2011 draft.  They chose their players and we compared the ones exercised vs the ones abandoned.   GM Avg...

New York Giants: Could Akeem Hunt Be The Next Dave Meggett?

Giants GM Jerry Reese only signed 6 UDFA, however; one of them was Akeem Hunt. Hunt played at the University of Purdue and starred at RB and KR. A look at his Pro Day Results (see chart below) shows that Hunt has the athletic ability that could help a time. His senior year at Purdue might not have been as impressive as some of the RB’s in this draft, however; it did indicate that...

How Beatty's injury will impact the Giants' offensive line

Despite the fact that New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese spent another premium draft pick on an offensive line, the Giants' protection unit is the topic of discussion once again. While lifting weights on Wednesday, Giants left tackle Will Beatty tore his pectoral muscle. Beatty immediately underwent surgery, and he is expected to miss between five and six months. Losing...

LB J.T. Thomas hopes to bring takeaways to Giants' 2015 defense

When the New York Giants signed former Jaguars linebacker J.T. Thomas to a three-year, $10 million contract at the start of free agency, the decision stunned many NFL observers. Thomas, a former undrafted free agent, had been a career backup for the Jaguars. That didn't stop Giants general manager Jerry Reese.  In Thomas, Reese saw a linebacker prospect who excelled in the run-and...

Where The Giants Top 3 Draft Picks Fit On the Depth Chart

The Giants found themselves in unfamiliar territory picking at the ninth overall selection in this year’s draft.  Picking ninth is a place this storied organization is not proud to be at, but at the same time it’s a place they know they had to embrace in order to be able to get a player that can help get Big Blue back to playing in January and February.  While the Giants choice...

Prince Amukamara already impressed with rookie Landon Collins

New York Giants second round pick Landon Collins is already making quite the impression. After general manager Jerry Reese admitted that he expects Collins to compete for a starting job right away, something Reese didn't say about the team's first-round draft pick, there was a lot of pressure on Collins to prove himself immediately. So far, so good, according to veteran cornerback...

New York Giants: Reese Misses the Mark with UDFA Signings

Historically, Jerry Reese has always been a very good evaluator of talent; especially when it came to signing UDFA.  Players such as Victor Cruz, Larry Donnell, Jake Ballard, Henry Hynoski and Will Hill were all discovered by Reese and signed by the Giants. Fast forward to 2015, although Reese did well in the draft, he was not so fortunate during the UDFA signings.  Below are the...

Draft Grades: Should Jerry Reese get high marks for the New York Giants’ picks?

If you ask me the whole draft grade thing is inherently silly. How can you possibly judge a team’s draft picks when they haven’t played a single game? Anyway, for what it’s worth, the draft “experts” are giving high marks to the New York Giants and Jerry Reese… Experts give their take on the #Giants 2015 draft class: #NFLDraft

New York Giants: Grading The Giants Draft

Round 1- Ereck Flower (OT 6’6/329) Miami: Despite Flowers high ceiling and raw talent, his selection was a reach in my opinion. Clearly, Jerry Reese wanted Brandon Scherff (selected by Washington Redskins/5th overall). In every ranking of prospects that I’ve read, Flowers never made the top 20 and has flaws in his game (slow feet, soft body, and clumsy hands). Reese clearly drafted...

Linebacker- Year 9

We just got through complimenting Jerry Reese and the NY Giants for a successful draft.  Let’s keep that high going with a video plug from Charlie Casserly of the NFL Network.

Why NFL draft analysts are dissing the New York Giants’ first round pick

My guess is that the New York Giants had their hearts set on Iowa tackle Brandon Scherff, but when the Washington Redskins took him at number five overall, general manager Jerry Reese didn’t have a true backup plan. How else are we to explain the mystifying pick of Ereck Flowers from Florida? It’s possible that Reese was determined to take the best OT on the board, but if that’s...

Should the New York Giants Trade Up for Leonard Williams?

The NFL Draft is all about building for the future. It’s about lining your team up with players that will keep your team’s future pointing upward.

Giants GM Jerry Reese: We are going to pick the best player at No. 9

New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese has earned a reputation for bypassing team needs to select the best player regardless of position. When the Giants drafted Odell Beckham Jr. in the 2014 NFL Draft, many observers questioned the selection. At the time, the Giants seemed much more stable at wide receiver than they were on the offensive line, at linebacker, tight end, safety...
