From Draft Tek:

A DT? Really? May be surprising, but after seeing JPP and the Prince taken with NYG's top pick in the past two years, we know that Reese goes for value, even at a position of strength. Brandon ThompsonBrandon Thompson

out of Clemson is generally regarded as the Top DT in the class of 2012... and when that kind of talent is there, Reese will grab it. Thompson's strength is stopping the run, and after the Giants made Dolphin Reggie Bush look like USC Reggie Bush... it's hard to argue the pick! In all seriousness, the NYG defense is giving up 130 rush yards per game, currently ranked 28 of 32 in the NFL. Opponent yards per attempt? 4.7, which is 26 of 32 leaguewide. That kind of performance is not going to produce wins in January. Adding a big run stuffer can only help this situation. ~ Bill Bliss, Drafttek NY Giants Analyst
