Here are a couple of 2013 NFL Draft tidbits that affect the New York Giants on this Friday morning, less than a week away from the 2013 NFL Draft.
From the National Football Post:
*One front office man is absolutely convinced the Giants will go for a tight end or linebacker at 19. For them to take a tight end, Eifert likely would have to still be on the board. And the only linebacker worth taking at that point might be Georgia’s Alec Ogletree, unless the Giants are high on Manti Te’o."
From Tony Pauline of NFL Draft Insider comes a note about D.J. Fluker, the Alabama offensive tackle many think the Giants would like to select at No. 19:
This afternoon I was informed by separate sources the Arizona Cardinals will consider DJ Fluker/T/Alabama with the 7th pick of the draft. At face value it seems a bit early for Fluker but his body type, power and football ability has NFL decision makers excited. Fluker is also considered a quality person, which only adds to his value. Right now I can’t see Fluker getting out of the top half of round one as Arizona at 7, Miami at 12 and Tampa Bay at 13 are all zeroing in on the big tackle. In the case of the Dolphins, much depends on whether they acquire Branden Albert from Kansas City.
