Fan's Take: Examining Jerry Reese's Draft Track Record

After the jump you will find a really incredible chart put together by a Big Blue View reader, Don Mushinsky. Don is taking the stance that New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese, thought of as a premier talent evaluator, has actually not done all that well in the NFL Draft.

In fact, Don calls Reese "a very poor GM" and labels his draft record "abysmal."

To be honest, I disagree. I have said many times that since 2007 the only poor draft I think Reese has had was the 2009 class, out of which right now only Hakeem Nicks and Will Beatty are regular, productive players. That could change, but the signs are not good.

Still, I thought this work was well done and worthy of being brought to your attention. Check it out after the jump.

Bust defined as draft choice that was with team 1 year or less and/or made no contribution to his position on NYG in regular season
