Ahead of Friday's second night of the 2014 NFL Draft, New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese took time to join WFAN 660. Reese hit on topics related to the draft and otherwise, and he'll have even more to say on the former after the Giants' two picks night at (Round 2, pick 11; round 3, pick 10).

Running back David Wilson is still waiting for approval from doctors to return to the field following last year's neck surgery. Last week, Reese said that Wilson was on schedule to return and the Giants certainly hope to have him back, and that his the team's draft plan would not be affected by Wilson's status one way or the other.
Tight ends in the draft
Reese on @WFAN660 "We think there are still some good TEs left on the board." Adds he wants the young players already on roster to step up.— Tom Rock (@TomRock_Newsday) May 9, 2014
Reese on young TEs already on team: "We're not going to panic because there are no names that people recognize there yet."— Tom Rock (@TomRock_Newsday) May 9, 2014
Maybe it's just me, but Reese does not sound like someone expecting to draft a TE tonight. "We're not afraid with what we have" #NYG— Art Stapleton (@art_stapleton) May 9, 2014

Many fans thought North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron could've been a likely pick for the Giants in the first round Thursday, but the Detroit Lions selected him two picks before the Giants at No. 10.
SB Nation's Dan Kadar has three tight ends going in the second round in his latest mock draft -- Washington's Austin Seferian-Jenkins to the Buffalo Bills at No. 41 overall, Texas Tech's Jace Amaro at No. 48 to the Baltimore Ravens and Notre Dame's Troy Niklas at No. 53.
