The round 1 pick is obviously a NT. I am OK with that, but would prefer to use a top thirty pick on a tru 3-4 DE.
The pick 2, is that person going to be an OLB?? At 243 pounds he would not project well to be a 3-4 DE. We need a replacement for Cowboy, not Aldon or Brooks.
I also value the TE position. I concur with drafting high for that position.
Great draft all in all.
The 2nd rounder, Corey Lemonier, is a pass rush specialist who can play 3-4 OLB or 4-3 DE in nickel and dime situations. As the Giants have proven over the past 5 seasons, you can never have enough pass rushers come playoff time.
I agree about 3-4 DE being a major priority, but I think NT is going to be of equal importance. Sopoaga may be gone this offseason. Justin will definitely be back next year. Ideally, we need both positions in this draft.
