Grading Recent New York Giants Drafts

Pro Football Focus has been doing a "Draft Grader" series in which is looks at the drafts of every NFL team from 2008-2010. PFF just completed its study of the New York Giants, grading players on a scale of +2.0 to -2.0, and has some interesting findings about the Giants.

In that time period there are no +2.0 players (defined as 'finding Tom Brady in the 6th round). But Jason Pierre-Paul and Hakeem Nicks get +1.5. There are also no picks that score below -0.5.

Here is PFF's summary:

"It may seem odd, but the Giants haven't found a truckload of talent from their drafts, though there is one consistent thing about them: they absolutely nail their first-rounder. In 2009 and 2010 in particular they haven't just found a contributor, but difference-makers that have propelled them to another Super Bowl with their ability to make plays. If you're not going to find a lot of talent in the later rounds, you need to hit on your biggest pick, and New York has done that and then some."

-- Over at SB Nation New York Mike Fiammetta has done his own study of the last three Giants' drafts. Also a good read.
