In the event of the site's mock draft happening

Alright, so I thought about the pick of CB Aqib Talib for a while. There is no denying he is a good CB. However, the Redskins have Carlos Rogers, Shawn Springs, and Fred Smoot. We don't need a replacement for Springs, as we have Smoot for at least a few years (he's 28, in his prime). Burning a 1st rounder on a guy who would sit on the bench or be a nickel for at least a year or two doesn't make sense to me. I'd rather take a shot at a or DE in that case!

If Talib is our option, I say we either trade down or do something no one's talked about in a while. Ready?

Draft Kenny Phillips. Safety is quietly (arguably) a position of need and he wouldn't be a huge reach at 21. I realize that the naysayers will point out that we will have drafted 3 safeties in 4 years as our top pick, but unfortunately we have to judge the situation differently as Sean Taylor is tragically deceased. He is going to be a good safety, there's no doubt, and Reed Doughty is servicable, not elite. Rather than grab a guy who is guaranteed to be a backup for at least a year or two, and a role player at best for longer, let's get a guy who will start and make an impact immediately.

Or, as I said, trade down and grab a DE or a WR in the top of the 2nd and grab another mid-round pick for an OL or DE. I agree that Chris Wilson is a dangerous guy, but I really believe in the Giants' philosophy of rotating guys. Umenyoria and Tuck both started as situational pass-rush guys, and that's what Chris Wilson should be this year (as he was when he caught fire at the end of the year last year).

We absolutely need a WR in this draft as our corps is sickly. Anthony Mix has only a few more NFL receptions than I do, so I don't feel confident with him as a #3 considering that Campbell still needs a legitimate target to be effective. If we can't grab a WR at #1, we are wasting our time grabbing a CB there and should trade down or draft Kenny Phillips, a guy who will impact our defense right away.
