The draft can unfold in many unique ways. Everyone was sure that at pick No. 19 the Giants would go Offensive lineman due to the fact that all the “skill players” would be long gone that fit the Giants system.
In a very unlikely situation 4 QB’s were drafted in the first round altering many draft boards across the NFL.
How can anyone argue with this pick? Surprised…yes, but that”s the way the NFL Draft can be. Prince Amukamara is very good corner. He was rated the No. 2 corner in the draft and was thought to be drafted in the first 10 picks. He can be a shut down corner in the NFC East and plays tough against the run and the pass.
This Nebraska corner stands at 6 feet tall and 206 lbs and can play safety if asked. With the Giants drafting another corner in the first round this is likely the end to the often injured Aaron Ross.
Prince brings some desperately needed speed at corner as he ran a 4.43 40 at the combine and could possibly challenge Terrell Thomas for a starting position.
For any reason he doesn’t win the starting corner back spot out of camp, look for the Prince to play in the Nickel or Dime package. Over all this is a fantastic pick…however; he’ll have to change his jersey number from 21 to….
Draft grade: Grade A+
