Peter's Initial Indications.....

With the first round of the NFL draft to begin on Thursday, April 22, 2010, reports have surfaced that Peter is leaning towards Rolando McClain as his NY Giants first round draft pick. McClain, an inside linebacker from the Albama Crimson Tide is said to be one of the top two linebackers to be selected in the first round of the NFL draft.

There has been lots of speculation of the Giants organization looking at McClain as their first pick in the draft. But this opens several questions, including:

- Would the Giants consider using a rookie MLB midway through the season? Surely they wouldn't start him in game one, would they?
- McClain has openly said he would prefer to play in a 3-4 defense instead of the Giants standard 4-3. But so far, we've yet to hear from new DC Perry Fewell of his defense intentions. Then again, Sintim said he prefered the 3-4 and that didn't stop the Giants from drafting him. Would the Giants draft a player so openly opposed to the 4-3?
-While McClain is athletic, does he have the speed to be a pass coverage type of player which is required for this position in the 4-3?

With almost 2 weeks until draft day, and several days until free agency, Peter still has time to change his pick. No sources have confirmed wheter Peter has e-mailed this pick into JR. For the time being, we can only speculate.

More to follow........
