Pete's Offseason thoughts - 6th March

Post  Big_Pete on Sat Mar 06, 2010 1:29 am

A day into free agency and the landscape has changed considerably. Based on my expectations from here, this is what I would like to see from here



Free Agency

Sign QB Derek Anderson (Browns)
Anderson will be cut before 3/19 when he is due a $2mil roster bonus (on top of his $7mil+ salary)
The Giants give Anderson a chance to ressurect his career (much like what happend with David Carr) and play on a playoff calibre team.
We do have Bhomar, but he is very raw, an experienced young backup is valuable insurance.

Positional Moves
Diehl to LG, Beatty to LT - this upgrades the trenches



Draft
15. MLB Sean Weatherspoon, Missouri, 6-1, 239, 4.68, 34

47. FS Nate Allen, South Florida, 6-0 , 207, 4.50

76. OT Jared Veldheer, Hillsdale, 6-8⅛, 312, 5.09, 32

112. DT Linval Joseph, East Carolina, 6-4, 328, 5.11, 39

143. CB Myron Lewis, Vanderbilt, 6-1⅝, 203, 4.48, 10

174. DE C.J. Wilson, East Carolina, 6-2⅞, 290, 4.82, 32

205. DT Jay Ross, East Carolina, 6-3, 313, 5.12, 30

This would give the Giants a roster something like:




Offense (25)
QB (3): Eli Manning, Derek Anderson, Rhett Bhomar

WR (6): Steve Smith, Hakeem Nicks, Mario Manningham, Ramsees Barden, Domenik Hixon, Derek Hagan
TE (3): Kevin Boss, Travis Beckum, Bear Pascoe

FB (1): Madison Hedgecock

OT (3): Kareem McKenzie, William Beatty, Jared Veldheer
OG (3): Chris Snee, David Diehl, Guy Whimper/Kevin Boothe/Adam Koets
OC (2): Shaun O'Hara, Rich Seubert




Defense (25)

LDE (2): Justin Tuck, CJ Wilson/Dave Tollefson
RDE (2): Osi Umenyiora, Matthias Kiwanuka
NT (2): Barry Cofield, Linval Jospeh
UT (3): Chris Canty, Jay Alford, Jay Ross/Rocky Bernard

SLB (2): Clint Sintim, Brian Kehl
MLB (2): Sean Weatherspoon, Jonathan Goff, Chase Blackburn
OLB (2): Michael Boley, Gerris Wilkinson

CB (5): Corey Webster, Terrell Thomas, Aaron Ross, Myron Lewis, Bruce Johnson
SS (2): Kenny Phillips, Michael Johnson
FS (2): Antrel Rolle, Nate Allen




Special Teams (3)

LS (1): Zak DeOssie
K (1): Lawrence Tynes
P (1): Jeff Feagles

any thoughts?

I know I did take 3 DL from East Carolina, but each is a geuine prospect in their own right and each is good value where they are selected.

I like spoon and Joseph but not crazy bout anyone else. Don't like Anderson at all but we could do worse.

hmm. never thought about Derek Andersen. He might just work.

You shure do like East Carolina players Pete. Smile

I haven't looked much into the deeper players in the draft yet but Weatherspoon and Allen are good picks.
