Tell us your ideal Day 1 scenario. What players do you want standing next to good old Roger represeting the Giants? If you want us to trade up, give us the exact scenario. if you want us to trade down, give us the exact scenario.
Mine is quite simple, but Im going to tell you why the Giants need these two guys, and not who they are. Everyone knows who Akeem Ayers is and what he brings to the table by now. Ill tell why the Giants need him in the first round.
It is no secret that we cannot cover the short pass no matter where they are. We get beat in the flats, in the middle, in the hook zones, just about anywhere on the field that is regularly defended by a linebacker. This is a problem that we have had since Jessie Armstead was in town, and even then we sucked at it. Well not anymore. With their first pick, the Giants will put the foundation down for a playmaking, pass defending linbacking corp that will be led by Akeem Ayers for years to come. No more will we have to watch in agony as the Eagles run the same play 15 times against us and get 20 yards everytime. Never again will we watch Jason Witten run wild in our secondary. No sir. With Akeem Ayers we can actually leave our 3rd safety on the sidelines like a real defense, and match up correctly with opposing offenses. We wont get dominated by Lesean McCoy draw plays or Felix Jones swing passes. Jason Witten will actually have a man in his face when he runs those 10 yard hitches right up the middle of the field. How do I know this? Because Akeem Ayers is fast as hell, athletic as hell, sepcializes in pass coverage, and he creates turnovers. Nuff said.
So after we draft the next great Giants linebacker and he takes a few pics to show off those great diamond studs in his ears, (if you havnt seen, Akeem Ayers is quite a flashy lookin dude and looks like he would fit in just fine in New York) we turn our attention to the other side of the ball.
We have playmakers all over the place on offense. Receivers are just fine, and once Ahmad Bradshaw gets his money the runningbacks will be fine also. Shaun O'Hara is the man and so is Rich Seubert. They will both be ready to go opening day and regardless of when they both go down in the middle of the season, (yes I am predicting both of these guys to get hurt this eyar) will be starting with the same front five that we have for the past 7 seasons or so. However, when one of these two goes down, our 2nd round pick will be ready to step in and cement his place as the next interior rock blowin holes open for Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs. That 2nd round pick can play either center or guard, and that is why we dont take the bait and draft the OTHER Pouncey who wont even live up to any hype, and have a dissapointing career while his brother wins super bowls. The guy that Jerry Reese is gonna take in the 2nd round will make him look like a genius because he will actually be the best center taken in this draft. His name is Rodney Hudson, and with some time on the bench behind all these veterans, he is going to get some awesome experience before he gets thrown to the dogs. The Giants are known for moving guys around on the line, as these guys pretty much play all 3 offensive line positions depending on the situation. Rodney Hudson is a beast and will be able to go in for either O'hara or Seubert.
What an amazing first two rounds.
