We did this last year with the 2009 draft which got a C (and it may be time to revisit that one since Andre Brown is back). It's pretty funny that yesterday there were articles grading the Giants draft even though none of the players have seen an NFL field yet.
It takes 2-3 years to REALLY judge how well a draft went. So this year we'll grade the 2010 draft.
Here are the picks along with their analysis from the 2010 NFL.com page:
Round 1, Pick 15 (15) Jason Pierre-Paul DE 6'5" 270 South Florida
Pick Analysis: The Giants add another talented pass rusher to their deep defensive line rotation with their selection of Jason Pierre-Paul. Although the South Florida standout is a little raw in some aspects of his game, he possesses outstanding first-step quickness and has an exceptional burst of the edge. Given the Giants' ability to develop young pass rushers, the addition of Pierre-Paul ensures that their stable will remain full for a long time to come.Round 2, Pick 14 (46) Linval Joseph DT 6'4" 328 East Carolina
Pick Analysis: The Giants add a mammoth interior defender in Linval Joseph. The former East Carolina standout is a classic nose tackle with the strength and power to hold the point against single or double teams. Given the Giants' defensive woes last season, Joseph's presence in the middle should stop some of the leakage that plagued the unit.Round 3, Pick 12 (76) Chad Jones FS 6'2" 221 LSU
Pick Analysis: The Giants addressed their dismal play at the free safety spot by adding Antrel Rolle during free agency, but the selection of Chad Jones is another attempt to upgrade the talent and depth at the position. The ultra-athletic Jones has outstanding size for the position, and flashes the potential to be a rangy ball hawk in the back end.Round 4, Pick 17 (115) Phillip Dillard LB 6'0" 245 Nebraska
Pick Analysis: The Giants finally address their middle linebacker need with the selection of Phillip Dillard. The highly productive linebacker from Nebraska has good instincts, and is a tough, downhill player in the middle. He should compete for the starting job as a rookie.Round 5, Pick 16 (147) Mitch Petrus OG 6'3" 310 Arkansas
Pick Analysis: The Giants pick up a strong interior blocker with the addition of Mitch Petrus. He was a top performer at the NFL Scouting Combine in the bench press, and his strength could help the Giants re-discover their power running game.Round 6, Pick 15 (184) Adrian Tracy DE 6'3" 248 William & Mary
Pick Analysis: Another conversion prospect from the CAA. Arthur Moats went a few picks ago, and now Adrian Tracy goes to the Giants. Tracy is long, athletic and runs well. He lacks ability to stack the edge, however, and may not be strong enough to be a three-down player yet. That said, he has talent, and the ability to get to the quarterback.Round 7, Pick 14 (221) Matt Dodge P 6'1" 224 East Carolina
Pick Analysis: The Giants finally inject some youth into the punter position. Last year, New York went with Jeff Feagles, the oldest player in the league. Feagles did not have a stellar campaign, and the versatile Dodge also has the potential to handle kickoff duties.
