NFL  > New York Giants  > Giants Draft Wish List
March 25, 2009, 12:51 PM
If I had the ability to influence the Giants draft, here is what I would ask for, irrespective of whether Plax is coming back, or not...

1. Trade for Braylon Edwards over Q Boldin, he's faster than Q, and has less mileage on him, which would also offer insurance if Plax goes haywire again. Imagine a Plax/Edwards combo at receiver with Smith in the slot? Wow! So the 2 and 5 weren't enough? Offer a 2 & a 3, and even the 5th that was initially in the deal, or maybe a pick in 2010 based on performance. That still leaves another 2 and 3.

2. With the existing 1st, draft a LB, one of the guys from USC - Matthews or Maualuga, and take a Tackle in the second round, or vice versa, to move Diehl out of the LT spot because he is too slow. If Kehl is the answer at LB, draft a tackle, or combo the first and 2nd and move up to pick one up.

3. Move Diehl to RT (he reminds me of Scott Gragg, who was big and strong but slow as molassess), which means McKenzie can be a solid backup because of injury conerns. If a G drops, move Diehl to that spot and McKenzie back to Tackle.

4. With the 3rd rounder, draft a WR (to finally get rid of Sinorice Moss or RB for added depth).

5. In rounds 4 and 5, pick up a TE and another O-lineman.

6. The last two, maybe a QB to push for the 3rd string job, and maybe another LB?
