New York Giants' headlines for Monday, 5/19.

Morning, New York Giants fans! Let's get the week started off right with some Monday morning headlines.

NJ.com's Jordan Raanan wonders which late-round picks could surprise this season. He likes fifth-round pick Devon Kennard. I could certainly see that, and I'm also keeping up hopes that fourth-round pick Andre Williams is able to get onto the field. As Raanan points out, though, that likely depends on Williams' ability to demonstrate pass-blocking prowess.

Bummer: Kid Cruz, named after Victor, disappointed at the Preakness. He's the second Giants-related horse to struggle in Triple Crown races this year.

How could the Giants' return units shake out for the start of the season? In his latest mailbag for ESPN New York, Dan Graziano thinks Trindon Holliday has the inside track to return punts, while Holliday, Odell Beckham and Quintin Demps could battle to run back kicks.

The Giants' other fifth-round pick, safety Nat Berhe, is the first Eritrean player in the NFL.
