Giants G.M. says he’ll move up in draft if he can

AP

The Giants made plenty of splashes in free agency last year, and the result was a good enough season to leave them picking 23rd overall in this year’s draft.

But if General Manager Jerry Reese has his way, the Giants may make another big move.

Reese told reporters today he was absolutely interested in moving up in the order a week from tonight.

“If we have an opportunity to trade in the first round we’ll do that,” Reese said, via Paul Schwartz of the New York Post.

Of course, moving up comes with a cost, and the Giants have the standard allocation of seven picks (along with future picks) with which to try to make a move.

The Giants could certainly use help at some particular positions. Some younger, cheaper help at defensive tackle after the loss of Johnathan Hankins in free agency would probably be near the top of that list.

They could also be interested in adding a high-profile running back, after filling in their depth chart with role players.

    Might want to draft a QB.

    Reese would do better not broadcasting his intentions, it’s a deep draft at D line and corner even in the 23rd spot

    Will this increase the value of their game used equipment?

    Probably thinking of moving up for a top-rated TE. Giants haven’t drafted a blue chip since Shockey – Tye is a nice number 2, but he shouldn’t be a starter.

    Trade up for McCaffery…we’re in desperate need of a quality RB….I like Perkins but I don’t see him being the solution

    Wrong draft to move up in, in my opinion.

    Value is there at 23. Stay put and keep 2nd and 3rd Round Picks.

    There is not an OT in this draft worth moving up for.

    TE, LB and CB are deep.

    Stay at 23, a good player will be there.

    I am a GIANTS fan, but that was funny.

    Unless he’s going after OJ Howard, I don’t think this is the draft to move up in. I’d rather he trade back if anything.

    I’d swear that was Phil Emery … oh I guess not, it’s just his drafts that look like it.

    OL – TE.

    End of story.
