The New York Giants need an infusion of youth into their pass-rushing unit and they may have it in ?Young Osi? Adrian Tracy.

The Giants' blowout victory over the 49ers yesterday said a lot about Big Blue.

But just how much?

The Giants earned a series of "firsts" and caused a series of "firsts" for the 49ers.

OK?well as long as no one was injured in the last ten minutes, I think I?m ready to unveil my final roster projection for 2011. We still have two preseason contests to go, but right around now is when the decisions start to become clear. So let?s jump right in with QB.

QB Keeping 2: In 2011, NFL teams now have the luxury of dressing 46 players on game day. This essentially means that the 3rd string QB is no longer an ?emergency option.? The Giants have chosen to forgo the 3rd QB all together since 2008, and I?m not so sure that changes this season. Obviously Eli is the number 1, but he heads up a current corps of 4 talented signal callers.

David Carr (first pick ever of the Houston Texans in 2002) is my favorite to win the job, and not just because he is less expensive than the other veteran alternative. Yes he is about 2 million cheaper than Sage Rosenfels, but he is also equally talented and more versatile. Quite frankly, I expected him to win the starting job in San Francisco last year and I still think he will be a starter again in this league before he retires. Rosenfels may also be trade bait for another CB (more later).

Adrian Tracy is likely headed to IR after separating his shoulder last night.

With mandatory roster cuts coming, this move may actually be beneficial to the Giants.

The Giants weren't likely to place Tracy on the main roster but rather send him to the practice squad. Of course, this would allow every other team to snatch him up during the course of the season.

Unprepared, understaffed, under-pressure and uncertain this NY Giants team has what it takes.?? Now, I love a year when the NY Giants are flying below the radar.?? I love a year when the "big mouth" Jets are telling the world how great they are; however, 2010 is starting to concern the Big Blue.

Injuries - 5 players key players came into camp recovering from recent surgery and at least 10 more have been injured this camp.? The offensive line is fragmented and the 2nd team defensive backs look, well....overwhelmed!

Adrian Tracy runs into Alex Hall and appears to have severely hurt his shoulder. More when we get it.

It is difficult to administer a solid grade for Jerry Reese?s 2010 personnel moves because there are less qualitative results to look at and hopefully Reese isn?t finished making those moves. What I will look at is how I think the players project on the team, how much sense the pick seems to make, and what I think Reese passed on.

1) Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida ? Just playing GM in my head, I can think of a number of different ways I would have played this pick. Reese could have gone BPA and taken Derrick Morgan, giving the team a great backup LE, who offers the same kind of element as Big Mike Strahan, including run stopping ability and leadership. He could have gone need and reached a little bit for Sean Weatherspoon to play MLB. Spoon is a projected 10-year starter and another player that offers strong leadership and even a little swagger, a la Antonio Pierce. Instead Reese drafted a third RE, and a very raw one at that, a raw one with high bust potential. Go figure. How good does that aces front look if Tuck and Kiwi slide to the middle and Morgan and Osi are on the outside? I?m just saying? I certainly could be wrong and if this was a team with no needs I would be much more okay with this pick, but as of right now, I hate it: F

2) Linval Joseph, DT, East Carolina ? I like this pick, but why not Taylor Mays, the safety that was projected to go top 5 last draft season? If you ask me what unit I think needs the most help from last season, it?s unquestionably the safeties, especially considering Phillip?s long-term outlook. Mays, so far has proven his biggest fault is that he actually listens to his coaches. Unfortunately that was Pete Carroll at USC last season. Under The Great Mike Singletary Mays appears to be blossoming? so far. At any rate Joseph is a solid pick. He won?t contribute this season as DTs usually are quiet year one, but he?ll make a name for himself in no time and keep the middle solid: B

The Giants used their 6th round selection in this year's NFL Draft on 6'3", 248 lb William and Mary DE Adrian Tracy. He fits the typical prototype that Jerry Reese values in his draftees: a good citizen that can play football.

Reese likened Tracy to former Giant LB Reggie Torbor, but quickly cited that Tracy was "a better athlete." Tracy played DE at William and Mary, but the Giants will probably use him as a SAM backer. Tracy was described by Reese as a "big, smart kid", which is evident in this video interview shot before the 2009 season.

A "Tweener" According to Experts

From CDSdraft.com...

Nice size and wingspan. Similar to last years' CAA DE phenom Lawrence Sidbury of Richmond, but is flying further under the radar. Gets our nod as the CAA's top DE prospect narrowly over JMU's Adrian Tracy because of his size and improved play against the run. Makes tackles from the back side. Shows enough quickness and lateral agility to be looked at as a LB, while he has room to get bigger if left as a 4-3 pass rushing end. Comes hard off the edge, and fights down the LOS and ruins the stretch play. Scrapes well. Protects his legs, and plays with energy. Solid citizen.
