New York Giants: Has Reese Found A Diamond in the Rough

With all the harsh criticism I have been given Jerry Reese; especially in this year’s draft, it would only be fitting to be fair and acknowledge him on a positive note.

New York Giants: What Jerry Reese Should Have Done On Draft Day

It’s been nearly a week since the 2014 NFL draft and I have been very critical of Jerry Reese in this recent draft. My main problem with Reese is that he displays no creativity in regards to benefitting from a very deep draft.  Reese had ample opportunity as the draft unfolded to add additional picks for the Giants to help improve the team. Unfortunately; for whatever reason he...

New York Giants draft good, not great

After looking back at the New York Giants 2014 draft picks, I could only think of one thing. It was a pretty good overall draft, but it sure wasn’t great.

Round 1: Odell Beckham Jr. (WR):  Once again Jerry Reese reaches in round 1 with the selection of Odell Beckham Jr.  The 2014 draft deepest position was arguably at WR and the fact that the Giants did need to add a WR with the departure Hakeem Nicks made sense.
