NFL Draft 2006 – Round 1 #25 – Pittsburgh Steelers (from Giants) – WR Santonio Holmes

The New York Giants are on the clock. They won their division last year and have quality young players at many of the key positions, notably quarterback and tight end. They could use another wide receiver or corner. Goose projected them to take Tye Hill here but the Rams took them way up at #15. Not a single wide receiver has gone yet, so they have their pick of the litter.

The Giants traded their pick to the Pittsburgh Steelers. They picked Ohio State wide receiver Santonio Holmes, the consensus best WR in this draft class.

They reportedly traded their 3rd and 4th round picks to move up from the #32 spot. They must have been high on Holmes; there would surely have been a top receiver available at #32, a mere seven spots later, with none yet off the board.
