New York Giants' news, 5/11: Mother's Day edition

Odell Beckham Jr. wants to be the next Jerry Rice. - Scott Cunningham

New York Giants' headlines for Sunday, 5/11.

Good morning, New York Giants' fans! And Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms, and moms-to-be, out there. Before you go off to spend some time today honoring the significant ladies in your life (you are doing that, aren't you?) here are some Giants-related headlines for you.

The 2014 NFL Draft wrapped up on Saturday. Big Blue has, of course, had offered a plethora of Draft coverage, all of which can be found on our 2014 NFL Draft Hub Page. We will have more follow-ups and analysis of the Draft over the next couple of days, so stay tuned for that.

For now, let's look around the Inter-Google and see what others are saying about the Giants' work in the Draft.

The Giants selected player-after-player in the Draft who had been a team captain. The New York Times correctly dissects that the "inescapable theme of the Giants draft that was completed Saturday was the pursuit of character and citizenship."

Steve Serby of the New York Post did his weekly Sunday Q&A with the Giants' first-round selection, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Giants' fans will love this quote from Beckham:

"I don’t want to be great, I want to be legendary. Anybody can be great nowadays, I want to be beyond that. When they turn on teach tapes 30, 40 years down the road, I want them to still be watching film of me. You got the guys like Jerry [Rice]. … I want to be G.O.A.T, is what I always say."

The New York Daily News writes that Beckham Jr. has always been a game-changing player.

Were the Giants interested in Michael Sam as an undrafted free agent? The defensive end, the NFL's first openly gay player, did not make it that far as he was selected late in the seventh round by the St. Louis Rams.
