So, what did you guys think of the Giants' haul during Draft Weekend?
In case you haven't seen the list -- and if not, why haven't you? -- here is what the Giants did on Day 2 Sunday.
• 3rd round (95th overall) -- Mario Manningham, WR, Michigan
• 4th round (123rd overall) -- Bryan Kehl, OLB, BYU
• 5th round (165th overall) -- Jonathan Goff, ILB, Vanderbilt
• 6th round (198th overall) -- Andre Woodson, QB, Kentucky
• 6th round (199th overall) -- Robert Henderson, DE, Southern Mississippi
Added to the first-day selections of safety Kenny Phillips and cornerback Terrell Thomas that meant five of the seven picks were spent on defense. I love that, because that is where I thought the emphasis needed to be.
Yet, the two most intriguing picks are the offensive players.
Manningham is an explosive receiver with first-round talent, but off-the-field issues raised character concerns and caused his stock to drop.
He could be a star. Or, he could be a head-case and a total bust.
ESPN described the risk/reward with Manningham this way.
There is no doubt that Manningham has first-round talent. He set a Michigan record with six consecutive 100-yard receiving games as a junior. Physically, he's one of the top receivers in the draft. Yet character concerns caused him to fall into the third round.
Coming off a Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots, the veteran-laden Giants might be the right team to get the most out of Manningham. Obviously, New York general manager Jerry Reese did enough homework to determine it was worth the risk.
If the Giants are correct, Manningham could be one of this year's biggest draft steals.
Considering all of the trouble the Giants have had adding big-play threats on the outside I can't blame Reese for rolling the dice with Manningham.

The Woodson choice was also an interesting one, and quite possibly spells doom for both of last year's backup QBs, Anthony Wright and Jared Lorenzen. With David Carr also added to the roster Eli Manning could have two new backups.
Woodson was apparently thought of as a guy who would be selected much earlier until a very poor Senior Bowl performance. The Giants seem thrilled to have found him sitting there for them late in the draft.

I am not going to try and grade this draft. There is no way to realistically do that until the players get on the field. As I said, though, I thought the emphasis was right.
I will have more on these guys in the next few days. For now, though, I am anxious to see what you guys have to say.
