The 2015 NFL Draft is hours away and it is time to look at what each team needs. The New York Giants play in the NFC East. Twice a year they do battle with the Cowboys, Eagles and Redskins, and these games are the most meaningful. Nothing feels better than Big Blue beating a division rival (especially the Cowboys). Nothing feels worse than losing to a division rival.
Let’s face it. When the Cowboys are on the clock, your ears perk up a bit, like a Boston Terrier who heard the neighbor’s dog bark, you care. You want to see who they will get. Because you want to know what the Giants are going to have to play twice a year (possibly three times in a year if both teams go to the playoffs).
The best way to beat your opponent is to know the team inside, out, backwards and forwards. Tom Coughlin and the Giants prepare for every divisional game with unbelievable focus on the opponent’s strengths and weaknesses. So let’s do a little draft preparation. What do our division rivals need to do in the draft? Or better yet how can the squander their draft picks?
