Draft Day rumor mill swirling

New, comments

Just a few links to keep you occupied while you try to stay busy until 7:30 p.m. ET, when the NFL Draft starts.

  • ESPN's Sal Paolantonio says the Giants are fielding calls today about Osi Umenyiora. Gee, why is that a news flash?
  • SI.com's Don Banks has the Giants taking Florida cornerback Joe Haden at 15. Intriguing, I just don't see Haden being there.
  • The arch-rival Philadelphia Eagles might be looking to move up ... way up.
  • Ralph Vacchiano and Mike Garafolo are both going with the chalk tonight. Both have the Giants taking Alabama middle linebacker Rolando McClain. I just don't know. McClain is the obvious pick, and I can't see the Giants passing on him if he gets there. I just don't see how he is going to be there.
  • Via Twitter, there was scuttlebutt (of course via Twitter) earlier today that teams are trying to steal Umenyiora from the Giants for a fifth-round pick. I think Jerry Reese is too smart for that.
