2010 NFL Draft Grades: Giants Fans Favor DT Linval Joseph

The Giants spent a first round pick on DE Jason Pierre-Paul. We passed along some thoughts from SB Nation's Big Blue View that suggested he wasn't the best draft pick.

Don't feel too bad for the Giants fans, though, they're liking the Giants second round pick a lot.

My favorite pick by the New York Giants of the three-day 2010 NFL Draft is Linval Joseph, the monstrous defensive tackle from East Carolina.

In a poll on Big Blue View, Joseph leads all vote-getters with 34% of the vote. Surprisingly, S Chad Jones is getting more props than Pierre-Paul.

One other positive mark in the Giants grade sheet is that Osi Umenyiora seems to be coming around after reports surfaced he was on the trading block.

Love the fact that Osi seems to be coming around. In the end, the best thing for the 2010 Giants' defense could be a motivated Umenyiora determined to prove on every snap that he is still a great player.

Big Blue View has a full round-up of thoughts and grades from other writers and bloggers.
