- The first thing you notice about this draft is speed.? The Giants lacked great team speed last season, and Jerry Reese clearly wanted to improve on that.? First round pick Prince CB Amukamara has solid, but not elite speed.? The same cannot be said for third round pick WR Jerrel Jurnigan and seventh round pick RB Da?Rel Scott, who are possibly the fastest players at their position in this draft.? Jurnigan should immediately be in the mix as the team?s return man, an area the team struggled with last season.? Scott has experience as a returner as well, but I doubt we?ll see him returning too many kicks with Jurnigan and a healthy Domenik Hixon.

- Another area that Reese improved was special teams.? Jurnigan aside, a number of the other draftees should help out on kick coverage.? Tyler Sash, Greg Jones and Jacquain Williams should all be special teams contributors.

- ?Prince Amukamara? was not the most interesting name to join New York sports on Thursday; that honor goes to ?God?s Gift Achiuwa,? who committed to St. John?s basketball.
