Stony Brook running back Miguel Maysonet, likely to be the first Seawolves player ever selected in the NFL Draft, was impressive during the school's recent Pro Day. Maysonet already has a private workout scheduled with the New York Giants, among other teams.
The visit may be a local one, which means it would not count among the official visits the Giants can hold prior to the draft. That is not clear right now. Maysonet is considered a late-round prospect.
Here is a list from Walter Football of players the Giants have expressed interest in:
Luke Batton, LB, Kent State
DeWayne Cherrington, DL, Mississippi State
Lamar Mady, OL, Youngstown State
Miguel Maysonet, RB, Stony Brook
Brendan Melanophy, DB, Fordham
Trent Steelman, WR, Army
Brian Winters, OL, Kent State
What else do we know? Giants general manager Jerry Reese attended the Georgia Pro Day, where linebacker Alec Ogletree and a host of other draftable prospects worked out. There were a variety of reports that the Giants hosted Alabama guard Chance Warmack for a visit over the weekend. Our own Jesse Bartolis reported that the Giants will host Maryland tight end Matt Furstenburg for a visit. Jesse also noted that tight ends coach Mike Pope attended the Colorado Pro Day to watch tight end Nick Kasa.
What does any of this mean? Probably nothing, but we know you love to speculate. So, there you have what we know thus far.
Update: Hat tip to college2pro.com and @nfldraftzone--Princeton Defensive line Mike Catapuno has also visited (or will visit) with the New York Giants--here's his profile (which has been updated to add more information).--Jesse Bartolis
