Giants traded up with the Eagles to get Ramses Barden

Post  56 Crazed Dogs on Sun Apr 26, 2009 1:06 pm

The giants made a move 6 spots up and gave away there 5th round pick to the Eagles to do it. The Giants selected wr, Ramses Barden from Cal-Poly.
Barden has a 6' 6" frame and should make a fine target for Eli Manning.

Had the giants not moved up, it's quite possible that Miami might have taken him with the very next pick. The Dolphins selected USC wide receiver Patrick Turner... the other big receiver in this years draft who many experts thought could be taken much later.

he is exactly what we need and actually offers alot of what Plax does

I have been big on this kid for a while now


the WR mix will be interesting

presumably Nicks, Barden, Hixon, Smith and Manningham have 5 roster spots largely locked up which means that the last one will be between Sinorice Moss, David Tyreem Derek Hagan or one of our other youngsters

that is excellent depth

yep. them first 5 you mentioned are locks. Moss may get cut at the end of pre-season since he offers nothing of value on specials.

I actually think it will be Tyree and Hagan that get cut (at this point)

Hixon and/or Moss will get the bulk of the special

but I think Moss could be really close to breaking out in camp this year and he has more upside than any of the others. All ne needs is consistency, with extra work, he might get that/
