Giants 7th round pick. Punter, Matt Dodge

Giants take a punter from East Carolina with their 7th pick of the nfl draft.
Matt Dodge has a career punting average of 43.5 yds.

This is the only pick that I really can't stand.
Sure, it's only a 7th rounder but why waste it on a player that will just get cut before the season starts anyways.

Much like last season when our 6th and 7th round picks got cut, I can easily see the same thing happening again this year.

I don't understand it either. Maybe we are bringing out the first ever 3 punter formation. The giants scouting gets a lot of unwarrented credit IMO. We have bombed regularly on late round picks. I could see Dillard, Tracy, and this punter all not making the cut. I'm just happy this draft is over with.

Agree.
I'm actually good with all of our picks until the last 2 or 3.

I don't mind this pick

It looks very likely that Feagles will retire, he has a meeting with Coughlin last week.

Apparantly Dodge can also kick off

- remember we brought in a specialist kick off guy this offseason

If Feagles was considering retirement I would think a vet to compete with Bond in camp is much better than a rookie.

yes, Dodge has done kick-offs also, but from what I've read, he's not very efficient at it.
