The New York Giants wrap up OTAs with their final two practices on Thursday and Friday. The team will hold its mandatory mini-camp next week, June 17-19. With that as a backdrop, let's look at today's Giants-related headlines.
Greg Gabriel, former director of college scouting for the Chicago Bears, broke down the 2014 Giants for the National Football Post. His conclusion? Pretty much the same as everyone else's. Gabriel writes:
"On paper, the Giants are an improved team, but there are still question marks. At this time, I don’t see them challenging for the NFC East title, but they could very well compete for a wild card spot in the playoffs."
Giants head coach Tom Coughlin wrote the foreword for Mark Herzlich's book "What It Takes: Fighting for My Life and My Love of the Game." Herzlich explains why he chose Coughlin and what Coughlin's words in the foreword mean to him.
A reminder to all the ladies out there that Sunday is Father's Day. Giants quarterback Eli Manning appeared Wednesday along with oldest daughter Ava at a Father's Day event for Oral-B and The March of Dimes, and spoke about fatherhood.

While we are watching videos, here is one that shows a couple of things. It shows that first-round pick Odell Beckham Jr. seems comfortable in the Giants locker room, and that his hamstring appears to be fine. It comes courtesy of Damontre Moore.
