Although it was a foregone conclusion that the New York Giants would draft 19th overall in the 2013 NFL Draft, the NFL made it official on Wednesday when they released this year's draft order.

The Giants will be the second to last non-playoff team to draft behind only the Chicago Bears, who finished at 10-6. The Giants are also the only 9-7 team in the league, which hasn't happened since the San Diego Chargers did it in 2010.

Over the last four years, the Giants have done exceptionally well in the first round, drafting running back David Wilson (2012), cornerback Prince Amukamara (2011 – 19th overall), defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (2010), Hakeem Nicks (2009) and safety Kenny Phillips (2008).

Although it's far too early to legitimately speculate a potential target (NFL combine and free agency will dramatically shift any early focus), here's a quick look at some notable draft picks taken 19th overall:

  • Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (Philadelphia Eagles, 2009)
  • Cornerback Antonio Cromartie (San Diego Chargers, 2006)
  • Running back Shaun Alexander (Seattle Seahawks, 2000)
  • Tackle Luke Petitgout (New York Giants, 1999)
  • Wide receiver Marvin Harrison (Indianapolis Colts, 1996)
  • Guard Randall McDaniel (Minnesota Vikings, 1988)

    Gotta take a CB.

    Here’s a great site for the Eagles cap situation:

    The Eagles made most of these deals very cut-friendly after just a couple years.

    For example, Vick currently counts 17.9 towards the cap, but cutting him reduces that to 7.2, saving 10.2M on the current 2013 cap number.

    Nnamdi’s even better. All of his pro-rated stuff is gone. He’s only due $4M of his base as a guarantee (and nothing more in the future). Cutting him reduces his 2013 cap hit from $15M to $4M, saving 11M.

    So those two players alone…instant $21M cap relief.

    of course, no matter who we draft at 19, he is unlikely to be much of a factor in 2013 — not the Coughlin way

    Those are four nice first round picks in a row. If Phillips didnt have the knee issue it would be an absolute HR. I doubt theres too many teams that can rival those four picks over the last four years.

    In Reese we trust…

    I’m glad we have Reese, Coughlin would prob trade all the draft picks for proven vets he can trust since the rookies wont play. lol

    I see Jake Muasau was signed again. I have a feeling he will be on the 53-man roster in 2013. Kiwi is going to play DE. I think Muasau will have a legit shot at being either the MIKE or the SAM, at the very least as the second guy on the depth chart. He has the body type to slam gaps shut, a major failing of our linebackers for the past way-too-many seasons.

    And I think we may see JR draft at least one linebacker pretty high in April.

    Here’s a thought. Don’t reject it before you think about it. Go to Corey Webster. Tell him he has to take $4MM or he’ll be released. If he says okay then great (I think he’ll have a bounce-back year in 2013 and be a pretty adequate #2/#3 corner). If he says no then release him and sign Asomugha (or one of the other corners out there who have talent but have had down years) on a one-year “prove-it” contract for $3-$4MM. And draft a cornerback with one of the top 3 picks. Take another “project” corner later and perhaps pick up another among the UDFAs. Hope the high draft pick can blend into the defensive backfield quickly and push the veteran or Hosley down the depth chart, but in any case you’d have three good corners, a high draftee, and some cheap depth. And maybe TT comes back on another cheap deal and manages to make it into the top four on the depth chart after what would be, in essence, two years of rehab.

    Two corners who I REALLY like are that kid Rhodes from Florida State (just what the Giants like: big and rangy and physical) and Trufant’s brother (who is almost certainly going to be available in Round 2). Of course there’s that kid Milner from “Bama” but he’s going off the board way too early for us. If I’m Reese I’m looking at Rhodes VERY carefully as my pick at #19.

    Pretty sure it was Nicks in 09 and Phillips in 08
    running back David Wilson (2012), cornerback Prince Amukamara (2011 – 19th overall), defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (2010) and safety Kenny Phillips (2009).
