New York Giants Prospect Watch: Players The Giants Have Shown Interest In

New, comments

'Big Blue Intervention' recently started a list of 2011 NFL Draft prospects the New York Giants have been connected to. When I saw it I realized I have a more robust list and I needed to share it with you.

After the jump, culled together from a variety of sources, is what I believe to be the best list of prospects the Giants have been connected to that you will find anywhere on the Inter-Google. Realize one thing about this list, especially when it comes to Pro Days the Giants have attended. If there is more than one prospect at a given school where the Giants attended a Pro Day, the Giants obviously watched them as well. I just have not seen an official source connect the dots between the team and the player.

For example, the Giants attended the Miami Pro Day and I have them connected to corner back Brandon Harris. But, that means they also watched linebacker Colin McCarthy and other Miami prospects.
