Giants really hoarded a ton of players with "raw" athleticism this year. Reese likened TE Adrien Robinson to a "JPP of tight ends." That seems like ridiculously high praise to me, however, Reese, a former talent evaluator, really knows his stuff. Let's hope. I like the Kuhn pick mainly because he is German like myself. Reese compared him to a bulldog in mentality. While a bit older, he is very raw in his own right and has a definite mean streak. I think Jayron Hosley will be the jewel of this draft. He fell due to some character concerns, mainly a failed drug test, however, I think he is going to be a real player and immediately replace Ross as Prince recovers from another injury. Randle I think will be the next best player.

As far as UFA mentioned by Prospectus, I really like Martinek, Tailey, and Manny Abreu also of Rutgers. I remember watching Martinek play high school ball and then college. He is a throw back, hard-nosed player, who is totally selfless. He is the all-time leading high school rusher in NJ and started at HB at Rutgers prior to this season, moving into a blocking role to accomodate a highly ranked incoming RB. He is an accomplished blocker as well. Tailey was productive against lower competiton and hey, another UMass WR worked out pretty well! As for Abreu, he was a highly sought prospect coming out of HS before having an injury-riddled, less-than productive career at Rutgers. Still, he has impressive size, speed, upside, and ability to play LB or DE.

Also signed S JoJo Nicolas from Miami, D'Angelo McCray, G from Memphis, and WR Damian David form Mary Hardin-Baylor (dismissed from OK State team).

So the Giants have essentially said, 'Our first three picks are first round talents'. I can definitely believe Randle was in their top 5, much more so than the Wilson > Martin talk that happened in defense of the pick. I love all three picks but at this point I just want Wilson to develop than play hypothetical of the Bucs not trading up for Martin.

Martinek, I think will be used more as a RB if he makes the roster.

Husley got a Manningham comp because of his fall via drug test vs. raw talent.

I misread Prospectus, I thought those were speculations on their targeted UFA. Good list (so far). As I said, Martinek grew up as a Giants fan. I think he profiles much more as a goal-line type/FB at this level if he breaks camp with the team. He isn't Jacobs size, but he runs strong, has a strong base, and will finish carries. He should be a blocking HB or FB, IMO.
