Ramses Barden - WR - Giants
*Manningham has been impressive, and we continue to pluck their talent. Barden, 6-6 200+ LB WR, was a 3rd round pick in 2009. When presented with an opportunity, he's showcased his abilities. Replaces Randy Moss on the roster.
NFL Draft -
R1: Barrett Jones - C/OG - Alabama
*BPA pick. Jones provides our long-term solution at center.
R2: Morgan Breslin - DE/OLB - USC
*Explosive pass rusher that gets to the QB and makes plays in the backfield. Great rotational player and special teams ability, possible replacement for Brooks in 3 years.
R3: Jordan Reed - TE/WR - Florida (via Panthers)
*Reed has great hands and runs great routes. Needs to improve on blocking. Great replacement for Walker.
R3: Blidi Wreh-Wilson - CB/FS - Connecticut
*Great size, frame, and makes plays. He could develop as a FS or CB in this league, but he'll definitely be an asset on special teams, and provides depth at either position.
R4: Dustin Hopkins - K - Florida State
*One of the best kickers to come out of the draft in recent years.
R5: Conner Vernon - WR - Duke (via Colts)
*Great small school prospect with reliable hands and strong route running skills.
R5: Dustin Harris - CB/PR/KR - Texas A&M
*Developing as a cornerback, but he has a great future in the NFL as a punt returner.
R6: George Winn - RB - Bearcats (via Dolphins)
*Fights with Dixon for the last RB/FB spot on the roster.
R6: Tanner Hawkinson - OT/OG/TE - Kansas
*Developmental offensive lineman that has played a variety of positions. Replaces Leonard Davis on the roster.
R7: Stacy McGee - DT/DE - Oklahoma (via Bengals)
*McGee would be a mid-rounder but his suspension for the first half of the season drops him to the 7th round. Fights for the last spot along the d-line.
R7: Bruce Taylor - ILB - Virginia Tech
*Replaces Larry Grant on the roster. Physical skills for the 3-4 ILB positions. Sound tackler.
