I smiled when he scored that. Always a chance he falls now because he's ********. And you never go full ******.

A recent Giant disagrees.

Every mock I've seen has him top-5. I think he's too good to pass up, no matter how dumb. I dont think it has an impact, but it makes me eager to see his interviews from now on.

Here's another one -- Pro Football Weekly's mock has Big Blue picking Kirkpatrick at 32 -- why did he fall????? Because of a dropped weed charge?

Kiper has him going to Cinci at 17. Scouts has him SD at 18.

If Kirkpatrick falls to 32, 25 GM's should be fired on the spot.

If we're not going O-Line or TE (Fleener i'd assume), I want David Wilson or Lamar Miller. Two RB's that remind me a lot of Bradshaw.

I don't really keep up with the NFL draft though since I can't be assed to watch all that college football. In JR I trust.

Rivers is a gamble. Three seasons and not much of anything on a good defensive team. My buddies from Cinci said not to expect much but he's good insurance in a backup role. I haven't seen him play since college, TBH

He's a decent player but nothing special. He was the kind of player who didn't really give up big plays but almost never made them.

Certainly a good depth player and if he stays healthy long enough he could end up taking that next step that we were always waiting for in cinci.

Nonethless, the giants got a good deal. He was most certainly moved for money reasons considering that he had lost his starting job to Thomas Howard who had a solid year.

I don't consider giving up a late 5th when you have two 4ths to be a huge gamble.

Glad to see that he is back.

Hard to be upset with that Rivers deal as well. Shaping up to be a decent offseason so far.

Exactly. Rivers, if anything, gives us a backup who'll probably be better than anything we have. If he's healthy, he's our starter. Our 5th is essentially the first pick in the 6th. Not a big loss for a guy who, if he can stay healthy, should be good at the least.

I didn't say "huge" gamble. 5th rounders in the NFL normally don't equal much, but Rivers' lack of playing time since being drafted makes him a bit of a risk. Its a depth move and he can help in coverage. Reece does have a good track record with lower round picks.

Odds are he'll be decent, but his health is what makes him risky

We don't do a heck of a lot with rookies anyways.

What do we need?

1. A 3rd WR. This will be fought over by Hixon, Barden, Jernigan

2. A Backup RB. Dare'll Scott will fight with Ware for this

3. A Tight End. Addressed through free agency. Eli makes mediocres into starters.

4. Some depth at linemen. Right now we have Deihl, Snee, Baas, Booth, Beatty (I), Brewer, Andrews, a guy we just signed. We might add one more in the draft.

5. CB/Safety- added via free agency

We don't really have any glaring holes.

I don't consider it a gamble then!

Hard to question what Reese does.

Boss, Bradshaw and Goff were all 5th rounders or lower since Reese took over. So he's batting .500 in terms of making something out of his lower picks.

I like the move. The kid just cant stay healthy.
