2011 Draft Selections (Before Draft Begins)
Giants Draft Needs
OT, OLB, ILB
19. New York Giants: CB Prince Amukamara
I have some problems with Prince Amukamara’s game but this was a great pick for the Giants at this point. I thought Amukamara was going to be a top 12 pick and would probably go to the Texans. The Giants are getting help in the secondary.
Fantasy- Amukamara will be an impact IDP fantasy corner and will help the Giants team defense. Terrell Thomas had a huge season with the Giants last year, so this youngster should be good for fantasy.
Draft Grade: A-
52. Defensive Tackle Marvin Austin
True to the Giants they continue to add help in the defensive line for pass rush and rotation. Marvin Austin will be a part of this group as the season moves along and I love the addition.
83. Wide Receiver Jerrel Jernigan
Interesting to see if Jernigan makes the team but the Giants may not have the depth coming into this year as they’ve had in recent seasons at the receiver position.
117. Offensive Lineman James Brewer
185. Linebacker Greg Jones
198. Strong Safety Tyler Sash
202. Linebacker Jacquian Williams
221. Running Back Da’Rel Scott
