On the overall perception of the draft:?"We feel good about the draft. I've always been a big believer that if you strengthen your offensive and defensive lines and create and have enough big people you have a chance to compete. We've got good players here, we supplemented with some youngsters that we really look forward to having them come in. We took the QB Nassib, who we were very high on, the grades were extremely high. He was the highest-ranked player when we took him, and then we added some guys at the bottom that are very, very interesting.
"Cooper Taylor, for example. A big safety who can run, is very smart who had a lot of statistics throughout his career. Eric Herman - a guy who'll fight ya, a battler who helped his team rush for 175 yards against Penn State."
I am not a big fan of everything that Mike Francesa says, but I was listening to him give his monologue Friday and I think he made a lot of very good points:
1) The Giants are a big play team. They are #1 in the league in plays for 30+ yds. Do not try to make them a possession/run team.

"While he was completely wrong to do so, hearing Darrelle Revis, one of the biggest stars in the NFL, basically call out Francesa as the pompous, arrogant, know-it-all that he is, was classic. ?Revis was awesome before, but he took it up another notch yesterday." - Chris Matassino

Mara talked about the lockout's?resolution, what's in store for Giants fans, and some other?topics including his belief that the 18-game schedule debate, which the players?were against, will be revived at some point.
During the negotiations, Mara told?Dallas owner Jerry Jones that he'd wear a Cowboys jersey around Times Square if?Jones could get the players to approve an 18-game schedule.

If you listen, it's apparent that Francesa wants to make a point that athletes can't always make the jump from the field to the studio without a hitch.
