The Prince is Here

Posted in Giants on April 28, 2011 by EAST SIDE RYNO

So if you guys haven’t been watching the NFL Draft, the Giants selected Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara with the 19th overall pick. Since I don’t follow too much Big 12 football, I didn’t know who Prince was until he was picked. But for the half hour I’ve been watching some of his highlights and he looks like a phenomenal defensive back. He’s a little guy but is very explosive. Plus, he was the 2010-2011 Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year. When it comes to the NFL Draft, I have full trust in Jerry Reese. Ever since he was hired in 2007, he has done a magnificent job with the draft. Even when he was the Assistent General Manager to Ernie Accorsi, it was Reese’s idea to draft the over-looked Osi Umenyiora. So for Giants fans, I think that this was a successful day in the draft. As we’ve seen for the past two seasons, you can never have enough defensive backs. If the Giants don’t have depth in the backfield, any good offense will kill them.

Here are a couple of Prince Amukamara videos:
