The Giants grabbed mammoth guard Will Hernandez of UTEP with the second pick of the second round on Friday night, a 345-pounder who moved into the Miners starting lineup as a redshirt freshman and started all 49 games at left guard. The Giants then added to its defense selecting linebacker Lorenzo Carter out of Georgia and defensive tackle BJ Hill from NC State in the third round. The latter came from Tampa Bay in the deal that sent Jason Pierre-Paul to the Buccaneers.
Barkley is one of the highest-touted running backs to be taken in recent years. That's something the Giants desperately needed coming off a 3-13 season. Gettleman acknowledged the Giants were extremely lucky to get such a talented prospect that fit a significant need at the start of the second-round.
"You know I love the hog mollies and this guy really has a lot of talent", Gettleman said of Hernandez. He's a "mauler" as most scouts would describe, being very aggressive at the point of attacking in run blocking. He's strong and has a solid base for the running game, and he's athletic enough for pulling and strong enough in pass protection.
