Drake Nevis and Brandon Harris are two of my favorites at their positions.

I definitely agree on Ballard, Moore, Wilson, Wilkerson, Ijalana.

I would add any DE to the list. Although I am high on a few of them I don't want us taking one. Kendall Hunter, Kyle Rudolph would be two others to add.

Personally I have Moch as an exception; he has the speed and athelticism at LB that we badly need (and our other hybrids have lacked)

I would be ok with a DE like Cameron Jordan, but wouldn't be thrilled.

I really like Rudolph as a second round option (maybe trading up); I think he is the all round TE we need and complements Boss well.

haha How did I know you would say that, although I do agree.

Also, I can see the Giants keeping hope alive for Adrian Tracy, who was also a converted DE.

I think we need to find LBs who are good fits in a Tampa 2 style of system, considering that is what we pretty much run.

It means we need more speed, athleticism and coverage skills which we don't have.

We have traditionally prefered the physical thumper/pass rusher at SLB (eg Emmons, Torbor, Kiwanuka, Sintim, Tracy) which isn't ideal with the prevalence of passing offenses these days or a great fit for Fewell's Tampa 2 style schemes.

I think Donte Moch is the kind of guy who can give us a bit of both.

1. He does have the speed, athleticism and coverage skills to become a good Tampa 2 style LB.

2. He also has the pass rushing skills to attach the line of scrimmage and get to the QB from the edge.

Sure he will take time to develop, but his skill set is uniquely a great fit for NYG.
