Reese Gets A Pass On Wilson

It is unfair to criticize Reese for drafting Wilson. Wilson’s career was shortened dramatically due to a neck injury, and he could have been a great player.

Randle Was A Solid Pick, Robinson Had Potential

Randle was a really good pick for the Giants. He has been a good No. 3 option for the Giants. He stepped up big in 2014 when Victor Cruz went down due to injury. Robinson had potential, he is a pretty good athlete. It hasn’t panned out, but I see what Reese saw in him.

Draft Grade: B

This is a big improvement. The Giants drafted good players at good values. This is the 2nd best overall draft that Reese has had with the Giants to this point, as we continue to climb to the present day.
