Recently Mike Garafolo tweeted
"Curious why more NYG predraft visits haven't been reported? It's bc the team scared the bejesus (cap "J"?) out of every agent in the biz. [They] "Threatened to cancel visits and all that good stuff if the agents let the cat out of the bag about their clients visiting. Oh well.
In the 2008 draft class, not one pick had a pre-draft visit. However, in 2009, Sintim, Beckum, and Barden all dropped by the meadowlands prior to the draft AND the visit was reported /confirmed by the Giants FO. Now the FO is threatening to cancel visits if the player agents leak the info? what the heck?
I'm not sure what to make of this--if anything. It could be just a smokescreen, but it begs the question...why? Why the secrecy, and why now? Why try and protect information that historically had little significance?
What do you guys think?----edit--- PFT posted a similar article. it can be found here http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/04/14/giants-dont-want-you-to-know-about-their-player-visits/
