Good morning, New York Giants' fans! Here are your Friday morning headlines.
The most useful thing Giants' general manager Jerry Reese revealed on Thursday was that quarterback Eli Manning is unlikely to practice until training camp following his recent ankle surgery. In case you missed it, here is what Reese had to say about the Giants' draft plans.
NFL Network draft guru Mike Mayock held a pre-draft conference call on Thursday.
Here is a little more from Mayock, gushing about Notre Dame offensive lineman Zack Martin:
"I love the kid. Even though I have him fourth as a tackle, he'd be my number one center or my number one guard. I believe that he is the only player in this draft that could start and play at a high level at all five offensive line positions ... I think he's coming off the board somewhere between nine and 13. He's too good. He's too safe. ... He's awesome. He's about as safe a player as there is in this draft. If you want him, you better get him early."
Former Giant Bear Pascoe has signed with the Atlanta Falcons.
Here is one former scout's seven-round mock draft for the Giants.
