S Landon Collins not concerned about replacing Antrel Rolle

The New York Giants selected safety Landon Collins with their pick in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft, after trading up to grab him. The Alabama product is the favorite to replace the departed Antrel Rolle, who signed with Chicago as a free agent. Collins says he's been in this position before and will be up to the challenge. "Starting at Dutchtown [high school], I...

Grading Every Giants Draft Pick

  1st round, 9th overall: Ereck Flowers, Offensive Lineman, Miami B+ Some might disagree, but I love the Giants investing in an offensive lineman in the first round.  Nothing is more important than protecting the franchise in Eli Manning as well as bringing in players that can help a stagnant run game.  The big question about Flowers is where he fits in initially.  Does he...

Giants trust their draft process and never stray from it

When the New York Giants selected University of Texas safety Mykkele Thompson in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, just about everyone was surprised. Even Thompson himself admitted that he expected to go undrafted after receiving interest from only one team (Giants) during the pre-draft process.Some critics believe that Thompson is an example of a bad draft pick based on value...

How good was the New York Giants draft?

First Round: OL Ereck Flowers Miami The Redskins threw a monkey wrench into the Giants first round plans when they drafted Iowa offensive lineman Brandon Scherff with the fifth overall pick. With Scherff off the board, the Giants turned to plan B choosing offensive guard Ereck Flowers with the ninth overall pick. Flowers is a big (6’6″ 329 lbs.) strong mauling run blocker that...

Odell Beckham Jr. is One of Four Semi-Finalists for Madden 2016 Cover

This year, New York Giants’ wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been selected to compete for votes against Antonio Brown, Patrick Peterson and Rob Gronkowski for that distinction. Beckham sits among a crowd of some pretty prestigious NFL players who turned...

The Madden Curse lives: Will it strike Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham next?

It’s a bit of a mixed blessing when you find out that one of your players is in the running for the Madden cover. One one hand, it’s nice to see them get the recognition they deserve. On the other, there’s always the concern about the Madden curse. For the uninitiated, the curse is an urban legend which says the cover athlete will either have a terrible season or get hurt along...

Landon Collins finally brings versatility to New York Giants secondary

Versatility is the name of the game if you’re going to score big in the NFL Draft. Good prospects can be extremely talented in one area but great ones always offer help in several. Maybe that’s what Jerry Reece had in mind when the New York Giants traded up to land Alabama safety Landon Collins. Reese told Dan Salomone: Reese said what really stood out about Collins was how...

New York Giants: Grading The Giants Draft

Round 1- Ereck Flower (OT 6’6/329) Miami: Despite Flowers high ceiling and raw talent, his selection was a reach in my opinion. Clearly, Jerry Reese wanted Brandon Scherff (selected by Washington Redskins/5th overall). In every ranking of prospects that I’ve read, Flowers never made the top 20 and has flaws in his game (slow feet, soft body, and clumsy hands). Reese clearly drafted...

Draft Review: New York Giants

After failing to make the playoffs in 2014, the New York Giants needed to make a splash in the draft and add pieces that can help get them back to the promised land. Did they do just that? Well, no, but what they did do is add a bunch of solid parts that will help make the entire organization better as a whole. Let’s see just how their draft broke down and graded out: Photo courtesy...

The New York Giants traded up to the first pick in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft in order to fill a major need in their secondary. Alabama safety Landon Collins slipped into the second round, and the Giants were able to snag him. He is the type of player that they can help build their defense around, and they were very lucky to get him. At 6-foot-0 and 222 pounds, Collins...

Giants Conclude Day 3 with an Excellent Overall Draft

The Giants did not have a Round 4 pick due to the trade for Landon Collins, but they used their remaining picks to get some players who may be able to stick on the roster.  Overall, this was as good a Draft as we have been able to assess here in 8 years of coverage.  Last year we did not understand just how crazy good Odell Beckham was, so that draft is likely to stand the test...

Giants killing it in this 2015 Draft

It’s only 3 rounds, but so far the Giants are having a great draft.  Sure, it helps to be picking 9th. But the Giants are getting it done with each pick. Yesterday we got the #6 guy on our board with the 9th pick, Ereck Flowers.  Today, the Gmen traded up from 40 to 33 and took SS Landon Collins.  The Giants paid a little bit (R4 & R7) picks to move up, but they would not...

Why NFL draft analysts are dissing the New York Giants’ first round pick

My guess is that the New York Giants had their hearts set on Iowa tackle Brandon Scherff, but when the Washington Redskins took him at number five overall, general manager Jerry Reese didn’t have a true backup plan. How else are we to explain the mystifying pick of Ereck Flowers from Florida? It’s possible that Reese was determined to take the best OT on the board, but if that’s...

Giants take Ereck Flowers in Round 1

If the Giants were not going to trade down, they took the best guy on our board, Ereck Flowers.  So we like the pick.  This is our predraft comment on Flowers: Ereck Flowers (2) POTENTIAL.  Not 9 overall. Needs more NFL strength but has huge upside. Giants cannot be faulted for taking him at 9, given the weakness of the Draft overall. Huge, can be great run force and great pass...

Player Selected: Ereck Flowers OT, Miami Initial Reaction: While they were hoping for Scherff they settle for their 2nd option. I think Flowers is a bit of a project but in time could become an above average NFL tackle, but passing on Andrus Peat just doesn’t sit well with me.Disclaimer: I agree you can’t grade a player before they even put a jersey on, but what fun would...

Should the New York Giants Trade Up for Leonard Williams?

The NFL Draft is all about building for the future. It’s about lining your team up with players that will keep your team’s future pointing upward. For some teams this means using their top pick to select a new face for their franchise. For playoff teams this means filling holes and adding depth with their later picks.

The New York Giants and Eli Manning have tabled contract talks and are letting him play out the final year of his seven-year, $106.9 million contract.
