The 2012 NFL Draft is over, and that means times for NFL Draft Grades. Mel Kiper of ESPN rated the New York Giants work a C+. Here is what Kiper said.
“I had running back as the top need for the Giants, and they got one with their first pick. David Wilson should be productive, but I think they really would have preferred Doug Martin. I might have gone with an O-lineman there, but the Giants have capably kept things patched up for a couple years, and will have to continue to do so, because they didn’t get a tackle until the fourth round. Brandon Mosley has a shot (he’s the No. 13-ranked offensive tackle on my board), but you don’t want him starting in Week 1. Rueben Randle lacks explosiveness, but he was a pretty good value as the last pick in Round 2. Clearly, the NFL thought he’d be gone far higher — he was the last player in the green room. Jayron Hosley is a really instinctive corner, and I wouldn’t have thought he’d still be around based on his sophomore year. But he regressed in 2011. He can cover, but he lacks a physical element to his game. Some helpful pieces, but Wilson needs to provide impact.”
