1(10)-FS Travonnie Young: Rated as one of the top 3 players on my board, to have him fall to 10 was unexpected and a pleasant surprise. Elite athlete at FS who will step in right away and play in 3 safety packages and be moved in at CB at times as well. He is the next Ed Reed in the making. 1(11)-WR Schon Dial: Again, unexpectedly dropped to me. Phenomenal value with an 83 overall A potential. Dial is very fast, very quick, with great skills as a slot WR. Gives the Giants a scary 1, 2, 3, punch at WR in Nicks, Cruz, and Dial. Doubles in the return game with a much needed weapon. Move opened up the ability to trade Manningham for the #25 overall pick. 1(25)-Traded to the Browns with Herzlich and my C to get a massive upgrade at C with 89 overall Alex Mack. Huge move for the Giants, who address one of their biggest needs. 2(52)-ROLB Brice France: France is an athletic linebacker who will step in for Herzlich and will add some athleticism to the linebacking corps. 3(74)-Jarrett Patterson: Patterson is a very quick and athletic back who can also catch the ball out of the backfield. Good value here, fell because of awareness. A much needed backup for Ahmad Bradshaw. 4(116)-K Connor Barnett: Here the Giants shocked many with a kicker. He has a big leg, and will be an instant upgrade to Lawrence Tynes. He and Dial should really help the special teams. 6(180)-OLB Teran Wright: Another athletic linebacker who should be a monster on special teams. 7(212)-TE Khambrel Hardy: A great blocking TE who is a good specialty value in the late round. Will be used in goalline situations My Grade: A-. I was pretty disappointed with my 2nd round pick, I feel I could have done a lot better here with more “digging”. Anyways, every other pick was good, and my acquisitions of Young, Dial, and Mack are phenomenal. I needed a better upgrade at linebacker, and wish I’d traded for Connor Barwin.
