Which Rb would you rather have in rd 3?

superspynyg : 2/13/2018 9:20 am
Nick Chubb or Rahsaad Perry or Royce Freeman?

Assume we went qb in rd 1. We resigned Pugh and signed Norwell in FA. We drafted a talented lber in rd 2. These three backs are there with Barkley(rd 1), Jones (rd 2), Guice (rd 1), Michel(rd 2), Johnson(rd 2)

which one do you like and why?

For me I think I might take Perry. Can carry the load 5-10 225b. He is a td machine and can bowl over people. Perry can be a work horse with Gallman spelling him.

I like Chubb, also but I think Perry is just better. One plus for Chubb less wear on him since he split with Michel basically 55-45 the last two years.
Do you mean Penny from San Diego State?  
BLUATHRT : 2/13/2018 9:22 am : link
If so, yes, he can do everything.
Penny or Ballage  
Earl the goat : 2/13/2018 9:23 am : link
But I want Barkley in first. No QB
Freeman  
Eli owns all : 2/13/2018 9:27 am : link
I donít understand how he gets no love. Maybe Iím an oregon homer but I have also seen him live. The guy is just a work horse and his stats donít lie.

Rd 1: Rosen
Rd 2: Wynn
Rd 3: freeman
Chubb

Less best potential. Plus he's a complement to Gallman. We could use some thunder out of the backfield.

Ideally, I'd rather trade up for Kerryon Johnson though.
I want Nyheim Hines in the 4th.

I'd suspect 3rd round  
uncledave : 2/13/2018 9:46 am : link
if he shows out at the combine and all the way to the 5th if teams are really asleep at the wheel but John Kelly from Tennessee has really caught my eye as of late
None

I think our running game stinks and would jump on Barkley in the fist round.

But by the time you get to round three you're merely duplicating what we did and we we got from the past two drafts. You're not improving it, so why not use the pick to shore up an area where it can make a difference?
Or how about...  
Zepp : 2/13/2018 10:23 am : link
We get Barkley and have a stud RB for the next several years?

That the Giants were doing a lot of homework on Freeman. He didn't declare last year. This year he is in the draft but now we have new people in charge.
IMO, Ronald Jones may wind up being...

Yes. Maybe Darnold 1 & Jones 2.
No idea  
idiotsavant : 2/13/2018 11:47 am : link
But wouldn't be at all surprised to see multiple picks at RB, LB and OL.

Two of each that's basically the whole draft.

My 2c is nose DT...but...
Penny

Kind of the guy I've got earmarked in my head for the Giants in the 3rd round. It's been speculated that Shurmur's offense runs best when you have a single, well rounded and versatile RB, Penny fits the profile.
At pick 66?  
jeff57 : 2/13/2018 1:39 pm : link
None of them. But of those three, probably Chubb.

That's not really true - Shurmur likes to utilize an early down back and a pass catching 3rd down type as he did this year with Murray/McKinnon

Obviously if he has someone as good as McCoy as he did in PHI, that guy is going to get the bulk of the work - but I think we'll see a couple of guys splitting duties primarily.

Unless we draft Barkley - in which case I'd expect him to get bout 80% of the touches.

That was only after Cook went down. I read somewhere that Shurmur was a driving force behind the trade up for him in the 2nd last year.

Except catch and block. But other than that, he's extremely versatile.

I'm sure if we were to draft someone like Barkley, he'd get most of the touches as Cook was before he was injured.

I was reading an article about Shurmur's power spread concepts a while back and it had a blurb about RB's:

Quote:
A power-spread also needs a feature back that can block (Latavius Murray) and an H-back that is more of a scat-back who can line up as a slot receiver or in the backfield (Jerick McKinnon). Both backs could flourish in a power-spread.


I think that was before they drafted Cook, though. So - you're not wrong. I think I'm just operating under the assumption that we'll be rolling with more of a committee because I don't think we're going to wind up taking Barkley.
What makes you think

That any of the running backs will be at the top of the Giant's board when we select in Round 3? Surely you're not suggesting that the team arbitrarily just pre-slot certain positions in specific rounds without regards to the talent then available when we do choose?

Jones is getting a lot of first round love lately. He may not be there in round two, but would certainly be worth consideration if he is.

I think all this RB is some good publicity but not reality. Dalvin Cook was a sure first rounder. Kamara was at least a second.

One of these guys is going to drop to our 3rd pick. That's where the value is.

Ummm, wtf? How the hell do you read the OP and come away with the idea that heís suggesting that the Giants have already decided to take a RB?

This place is something else...

Maybe because the title of his post reads "Which RB would you rather have in Round 3?" Perhaps you should pay a little more attention when you are reading something.
