The Giants got Hakeem Nicks in the first round, and I think it's a great choice. Decision. He's a very good player, although his personality may have caused him to fall. Which means he's the perfect replacement for Plaxico Burress.
In the second round, they got linebacker Clint Sintim from Virginia and William Beatty, a solid O-liner from Connecticut. They don't NEED them per se, but they're great values at their respective selections.
Meanwhile, the Jets made a big move and traded just about nothing to move down and take Mark Sanchez. In addition to swapping picks, they also sent this year's second-rounder and three no-names to the Browns...home of former coach Eric Mangini. Interesting...kinda like that Matt Cassel trade, hm?
All's well in Jersey thus far in the draft. Know where life sucks? Oakland. Is Al Davis high? Did he forget about Michael Crabtree, or was he enticed by the hyphen in Heyward-Bey?
