2011 Draft Class

The 2011 Draft Class is to say the least, a very weak class. Only 1 of the 8 players drafted remain on the roster. This failed class heavily aided in the Giants lack of depth over the past two seasons. First round pick Prince Amukamara has shown promise but still needs to fully come into his own and  late round selection Jacquian Williams played a pivotal role in the 2011 NFC Championship game.

Prince Amukamara definitely has the potential to become an outstanding cornerback in the NFL. Last year we saw him playing at a very high level until he suffered a season ending injury. He started playing very physical football on the outside and no longer seemed hesitant to come up and make tackles. He doubled his career INT total with 3 picks in 8 games last year and I think the Giants would be best suited to extend his contract now before he has a great season at the end of his rookie contract. With that being said there is plenty of room for improvement.

Jacquian Williams never developed into the speedy every down linebacker the Giants hoped. He did however force a key fumble in the 2011 Championship game in overtime that set-up Lawrence Tynes game winning field goal that sent the Giants to Super Bowl 46. It may be all he did, but if he didn’t we may not have seen Super Bowl 46.

Analysis: This was a poor draft as of today. I think Prince Amukamara is going to really prove he is an outstandig cornerback this season. But he is still yet to do that and until he does I cant call this draft anything but poor.
