Does this mean the Giants will definitely draft McClain if he is available to them? No, but it has to be a good sign.
Not to stir up the C.J. Spiller stuff again, but here is an interesting line from Mike Garafolo last night talking about McClain and Spiller
Trust me, he's on their radar, as is Clemson running back C.J. Spiller. ProFootballTalk.com reported Monday they're hearing teams, including the Giants, are clamoring to move up for Spiller. It might be a bit early for that kind of talk, but I can tell you the team likes Spiller.
By the way, during the Sirius interview with Ralph Vacchiano and ex-NFL QB Jim Miller McClain said playing the 4-3 defense is a non-issue. His quote? "I know I can excel in either defense."
- Coach Tom Coughlin attended the South Florida Pro Day. South Florida has nearly a half-dozen defensive players who might interest the Giants.
- Houston Texans' fans are rejoicing today since middle linebacker DeMeco Ryans has signed a six-year deal with the team. So, anyone still fantasizing about the Giants swapping a couple of picks for the Pro Bowl linebacker can stop.
- Led by Chris Mortenson and Mel Kiper Jr., ESPN talking heads discussed the Giants draft needs recently. They came to the stunning conclusion that the Giants should grab Rolando McClain if he is available. Geez, I sure am glad those guys make a boatload of cash to tell me things I already know.
- The Giants were apparently one of 11 teams to attend a private workout Tuesday by former Rutgers offensive tackle Anthony Davis, a likely first-round selection in the upcoming draft.
