Final Report Card: C

Reese is an inconsistent drafter. There is just no other way to put it. In some years, he gets very little value added to the roster. When you are ready for him to leave he has back to back solid drafts. This is what makes putting a final grade on this so bad.

But when you average the grade from each season (B+, C+, D+, C, F, B, A, A) you get a C. Reese is neither a genius or an idiot. He is an inconsistent drafter, who has years both good and bad.

The problem however is that in four different NFL drafts, he scored a C or lower. In most of the drafts, Reese could not deliver more than just one or two starters. He took a chance on a handful of players that did not pan out at all. You could argue that the 2011 draft didn’t help the team at all in the short-term. The only reason it helped the team at all was Amukamara finally showed us what he can do this past season.

The NFL draft is not something where everything you do can be perfect. Even the best drafting teams have their stumbles. The problem however, is that the Giants need better than an average drafter. It is just not good enough for Giants fans, Mr. Reese.
