Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: The enormous size of WR Ramses Barden, whose hands measure 10 3/4 inches, might turn out to be the team's most courageous selection. A clip of his game highlights on YouTube showed eight distinct "fade" patterns which he turned into touchdowns, and with long arms to go with his height and big hands, he may well turn into the "new Plaxico" in red zone pass plays. A closer look at the Giants' picks: Round 3/85 -- Ramses Barden, WR, 6-6, 229, Cal-Poly...Tall and talented, with giant hands and 37-inch arms, Barden is considered the eventual replacement for the departed Plaxico Burress. He should be used immediately in red zone situations and might turn into one of Eli Manning's favorites when he wants to throw the fade pattern. - by The Sports Xchange
