Good Afternoon!!! Earlier today I wrote in a comment, "there are 20 "top 10" talents... we should be able to grab one of them at 19". So over the course of the next couple hours I pondered... How accurate was I??
So I started looking at Big Boards across the great sea of the internet... I found 7 (technically 6, but I realized our own Jesse should have his counted as well). Take this with a grain of salt, this really was a half hearted effort on my part but it really shows the possibility of someone falling to us.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you The Excel!!!
As you can see from the bottom, there are 18 players that rank on somebody's top 10 board. I think realistically, we can expect someone that was only listed 4 times or less a real player to drop to 18. Which if you look at the list, includes some pretty awesome names.
Truth is we will never know. The craziness that is the 2013 draft will have so many twists and turns that the 18 that are listed below (apart from Joeckel and Smith) have a realistic chance of being a Giant next year. So yes, even though Carradine is ranked mid to late first round and would be an awesome addition to this team if healthy, I would be severely disappointed if we grab him, because there would have been someone else much better than him left on the board.
Good Day All!!! Go Giants!!!!!!
