DE Damontre Moore needs work, but show me one 20 year-old besides Dwight Gooden that didn't. Moore was a consensus All-American as a junior last year and was projected to be a top-ten pick. He is a sack-machine that for some unknown reason slipped to the Giants in Round Three. If it was for off-the-field reasons, the Giants aren't buying in. I smell steal here, folks.
The knock on Hankins is that he wore out during games. That's because the idiot evaluating him forgot to tell you that Hankins played every down. He never came of the field. What 320 lb man would not be exhausted after busting it for three hours without a break?
With the Giants, Hankins will be in the rotation, and most likely exit the field on passing downs. He can be a difference maker for the Giants. They won't get pushed around the yard so much any longer.
Moore has experience at DE and the "joker" position. Nicknamed "DeMonster" by his A&M teammates, Moore was one of the most productive defensive players in the country last year. He has been compared to Robert Ayers and John Abraham. I see him as a Mathias Kiwanuka-type. All three of those players, btw, were first-round draft picks.
This is why the Giants are what they are. They do their own homework. They don't buy into buzz and follow their own board. They have a legion of scouts that have their boots on the ground 24/7/365 and manufacture their own intel. They do not listen to - or care - what any outside agency or media outlet has to say about personnel. They go by what they have personally gathered.
Don't be concerned about the LB situation or the need for depth at corner. They still have plenty of options in front of them.
Today, the Giants have five more selections: the 19th pick in each of the remaining rounds (#116, #152, #187, #225) plus a compensatory 7th rounder (#253).
Their track record has been stellar in the later rounds and directly after the draft. Today, a rich franchise is about to get richer.
