They do not throw the football over the middle of the field. They have no legitimate TE to handle that duty and only one WR (Domenik Hixon) who is capable of handling it. Hence, every pass is either over or around the defense.
Opponents will catch on to this (if they haven't already) real soon and adjust accordingly. The Giants will have nothing to counter with. They should have drafted a tight end.
Instead, they misfired greatly in April. The injuries to their first two selections obviously are not Jerry Reese's fault, but the rest of this draft is.
In the 3rd round, they took Troy WR Jerrel Jernigan. In the fourth round, they chose OT James Brewer of Indiana. Neither figures to help this team in 2011. In fact, many believe they may never help this team.
Jernigan was a long shot to be part of the offense. His forte is as a returner. Thus far, he's been horrible. Brewer blew a blocking assignment on STs and nearly got K Lawrence Tynes crippled. Tynes is still out.
They, instead should have drafted a player that could help them, not hurt them. They have enough projects on this roster.
At TE, they are going with Jake Ballard and trying to work Travis Beckum in somewhere. Good luck. They need someone defenses have to account for. They don't, but they could have...
I like Tennessee' Luke Stocker, USC's Jordan Cameron and DJ Williams of Arkansas. The Giants didn't. All were available to them in the third and fourth round.
I hate to be the guy that us always pointing out the shortcomings, but I think they should have grabbed one of those three....
