a pretty good read, i posted and bolded what i thought was good, give your viewpoints; GRILLO: The ACC has some steals with regard to the upcoming draft By Ron Grillo Telegram Correspondent Sunday, April 19, 2009 The New York Giants don’t need my help in the NFL draft, which commences Saturday, but I’ve got draft experience and they’re going to get it nevertheless. wouldnt it be super if we as cowboys fans gets this to the cowboys and because this giant fan said he has some tips we let the cowboys know so they can get him before the giants, that would be cool; my thoughts I’ll e-mail a copy of this column to Jerry Reese, who will begin his third season as the Giants’ general manager since taking over for Ernie Accorsi. Reese is averaging a Super Bowl title every two years. Decades ago, Ray Didinger, now with NFL Films, and I implored then-Eagles head coach Mike McCormack to draft Billy “White Shoes” Johnson out of Widener College. This is almost verbatim from McCormack: “We’d love to guys, but we’ve only got 16 rounds and we’ve got to make them count.” Billy’s not in the Hall of Fame, but might be the most exciting, most prolific former player who isn’t. Let me begin with what they like in the Giants camp — a big running back. For several reasons, I didn’t think that N.C. State’s Andre Brown would be drafted at all. Now, he’s not in same class with Knowshon Moreno or Chris Wells (I refuse to call him by that silly nickname) or even UCONN’s Donald Brown, but Brown could be a steal. Never known for blazing speed, he forged a time of 4.37 at the combine, leaving the aforementioned in the dust. Some have Andre going in the second round. Speaking of a steal, UNC’s Brandon Tate could have more of an impact on this NFL season than anyone in the draft. That is, if the left knee he injured last season against Notre Dame is completely rehabilitated. There’s no telling how good the Tar Heels would have been in 2008 had Tate remained healthy. He’s got those same qualities as Billy Johnson, but he’s faster, more explosive, and he will wreak havoc on opposing teams. I think he’s the most breath-taking player I’ve seen in the Triangle in 14 years, and that would include Torry Holt. I could have begun this column talking about UNC’s Hakeem Nicks. In a year filled with blue-ribbon wide receivers, Nicks is among the finer. Michael Crabtree and Jeremy Macklin will be drafted before he is, and Rutgers Kenny Britt might be also. Sporting News Magazine has the Giants taking Maryland wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, but anyone who passes on the talented Mr. Nicks might long regret that decision. I just see him in a Giants uniform for 10-12 seasons. It’s hard for me to believe that there are 26 wide receivers better than the Heels’ Brooks Foster, but that’s where he's currently rated. UNC’s Trimain Goddard is as short as they come at safety, but he makes up for that in intelligence and savvy. Make this kid your first choice as a free agent if he doesn’t go after seven rounds. I don’t have to tell you how good are all of Wake Forest’s blue chippers. Duke Linebacker Michael Tauiliili is reminiscent of Zack Thomas and deserves a chance. N.C. State tight end Anthony Hill is about two rounds better than ECU’s Davon Drew.
