The Giants are in much need of a vocal leader at MLB, and this year there is some competition for that critical spot in the middle of the Giants defense. Greg Jones, two time All American MLB out of Michigan State who came to the Giants this spring in round 6 of the NFL draft may finally be that key player.

Another positive: Some players were leaving before the full defensive call. Greg Jones yells “Get back in the damn huddle!”
This is not a knock on Jon Goff — but he’s anything but vocal on the field. He’s a no nonsense, understaded, vicious hitter that has come a long way in improving coverage abilities. But a true MLB is something everyone knows the Giants need and have needed since Antonio Pierce started showing his age in his gameplay. If this anecdote gets legs, and is an honest indicator of good things to come from Greg Jones, the Giants are going to have some serious ROI having stolen Jones in round #6 of the 2011 draft.
