Jerry Reese on our draft picks

Post  Big_Pete on Sun May 01, 2011 7:32 am

Comments from Jerry Reese on our draft picks

Prince we've talked about him, fell to us. We try not to be surprised in a draft because funny things always happen in a draft, but the guy fell right in our lap. We're really pleased with that, that he could come in and start challenging for a spot, help us on special teams, play in the nickel, do a lot of stuff for us. We thought he was a top-ten talent.

Marvin Austin well documented off-field issues. Did our homework on him, thought he was a top 15 talent. We think he'll be a terrific player on our defensive front in the rotation.

Jernigan wide receiver, return specialist, returns punts and kicks, fast, explosive player, will play in the slot for us probably. Hopefully he can give our special teams, our return game, a boost along with some other guys that we have. This guy gives us another option. But he is an explosive player. We really like him. We had him rated pretty high up there and we think he'll do a good job for us.

Brewer talked about him a little bit earlier today. Height, weight, speed, really kind of a common thread though of all of these guys. We try to upgrade our speed at every position. Most of these guys are height, weight, speed people. Jernigan is not a height, weight, speed, but he's what we call a G-type. He's small and fast. Brewer height, weight, speed player. Has some developmental things that he can get better. A lot of technique stuff that he'll get better at as a pro. But this is a gigantic man with long arms. You get excited about these kinds of guys.

Greg Jones linebacker, has been incredibly productive over his time at Michigan State. One of the things that the late Tom Boisture taught me is when you scout guys, you respect production. This guy has tons of production. This guy has sacks. He has tons and tons of tackles. He's played at a high level, very instinctive player. Another guy who's going to come in with a chip on his shoulder because I'm pretty sure he feels like he should've been picked a lot higher than where he got picked. He'll come in here with something to prove as well, along with Marvin Austin.

Tyler Sash height, weight, speed safety, more of a strong safety. Played a high level of comp. Lots of interceptions, I think he had 13 interceptions in his career there. Smart player, he came in, he can line up the entire defense. He can put everybody on there and tell you what they should do. You love those kinds of guys. We think he will definitely come in and challenge for a spot back in our secondary, back at one of our safety positions.

Jacquian Williams the linebacker from South Florida, fast, athletic. The guy will strike you, will give us some more speed on our special teams. Junior college kid, so he'll be behind a little bit with regard to high level of play. Came there late, to South Florida, but he got into the mix really quickly there and just took off. A lot of people probably didn't know him. Our scouts really did a good job digging this guy out. We think he can really give us a boost on special teams with his speed while he's learning how to play up here at this level.

Da'Rel Scott we took a flyer on the guy because he is big and fast. He is fast, he had a terrific sophomore season. His production fell off, but late in the draft this is what you look for. You look for guys with some redeeming qualities. This guy is big and fast. We hope this guy will come over here and do a Willie Parker, one of those kinds of things. We're really pleased with our draft class. We look forward to having these guys in here and get going with it.

Thanks for posting.

We got some exciting draft picks imo. For some reason I was thinking Willie Parker also on Darel Scott before even hearing that reference from Reese.
This kid has some wheels from the highlights that I've seen of him.

Like I said before, Brewer is the only guy that I'm skeptical about.

This stinks. One of my favorite times is after the draft when all the teams sign undrafted rookies. We won't be seeing that anytime soon.

After hearing from Reese and Ross, I am more confident on Brewer. They believe he can be a left or right tackle.

All in all I think it was a decent draft with a lot of potential, we will see how it pans out.

Agreed.

It could also be a case of these guys joining into free agency. The CFL and UFL could pick up a larger than usual bunch of these guys too.

Brewer is that 'Guy Whimper' pick. If Beatty jumps into the starting lineup at LT this year or next and we cut ties with Andrews or he is injuried Brewer is that potential back up swing tackle. He has limited experience and under better pro coaching he has good potential.

You are probably right, although Brewer does have more game experience than Whimper though, but they will fill a similar role.

I do think it will be unlikely for Andrews to be back.

This is exactly why I wanted the Giants to pick Marcus Cannon. He's a big mauler that has potential to fit any spot on the line.

Yea had the Giants drafted Cannon it would have been easier to say Andrews is gone. But at this point he hasn't been replaced by anyone and holds too much value on our team. Brewer is a nice project pick though. I think his upside at tackle is better than Cannons.

I am not sure on Andrews.

His contract is considerable.

2011: $3 million (+ $3.5 million roster bonus due on 30th day of "league year")

2012: $4.25 million,

2013: $5.25 million,

2014-2015: $5.5 million, 2016: Free Agent

plus 500k workout bonuses each year

That is $7m this year for a player who Reese has admitted is going to have ongoing issues with his back.

Compare that with Snee

$2.25m signing bonus plus
2011: $2.95 million, 2012: $5.2 million, 2013: $6.2 million, 2014: $6.7 million (Voidable Year), 2015: Free Agent

and Diehl

2011: $4 million, 2012: $3.825 million, 2013: $4.1 million, 2014: Free Agent


I think the Giants would like to have Andrews back, but if there is a salary cap (likely with a new CBA), then it may be hard to justify $7m for Andrews, particularly as you could get a stud LB in free agency for that.

I do like Andrews and he does have value to the team, but it may be hard to justify, particularly if we do try and sign a center in free agency.
