New York Giants Select Prince Amukamara With 19th Overall Pick

With the 19th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the New York Giants selected Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukarama.

This pick has to be pure best available talent. The Giants did not, at least by my estimation, need a cornerback. Still, they could not have expected an opportunity to draft Amukamara. I really like the young Prince. I think he comes off as a Johnathan Joseph and Leon Hall type of cornerback. Namely, he can run, get physical, and is more of a ball-swatter as opposed to an interceptor.

I imagine the Giants will probably put him in the nickel to counter the vaunted passing attacks of the Eagles and Cowboys. I thought the Giants might have gone linebacker or offensive line, but they'll probably target that tomorrow. I like the Prince pick though strictly because it provides great value.
