THR - Giants 2009 Team Needs

Post  Big_Pete on Wed Jul 16, 2008 6:58 pm

The Huddle Report has posted their thoughts on the giants 2009 team needs, what do you think?

from http://www.thehuddlereport.com/ppSD/protected/teamneeds.shtml?

GIANTS

1: LB
2: DT
3: RB
4: CB
5: DE

Besides Pierce, their linebackers remain question marks. They'll continue to improve their defensive line rotation. Running back is a need only if Jacobs isn't re-signed, and they will look at adding another young corner to replace Madison.

I think this is a very reasonable assessment of our expect needs in 2009

It is very similar to my very early projected 2009 draft Smile

OLB in the 09 class looks a little weak besides Brian Cushing, I am hoping we get Angelo Crowell in FA. I am hoping for Trevard Lindley out of Kentucky, he is a master at press coverage good fit and yeah i know way too early for 09 draft talk but yeah its slow until preseason/camp begins.

I am not so sure to be honest

On the surface it doesn't look deep, but I think there will be plenty of talent and depth that will be ideal fits into Spags'/Sheridan's system.
