Morning, Giants fans! Happy Tuesday.

Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily News has a cool story on how Eli Manning and his newest weapon, fellow New Orleans product Odell Beckham, previously worked out together at their high school, Isidore Newman. About five years ago, Vacchiano writes, Eli and his brother, Peyton, went home to New Orleans and asked their old high school coach for some receivers that could come by for a workout. Beckham greatly stood out from the bunch that showed up.

"He was a different athlete than the other guys that were there from a small, private school in New Orleans. There’s not a ton of great athletes at receiver, but he stood out.

Peyton and I were trying to make sure we were matched up with him every time."

Also in that article: general manager Jerry Reese said on SiriusXM Radio that he expects running back David Wilson (neck) to be cleared for contact by the time training camp begins in July.

The Post's Bart Hubbuch has his own NFL Draft grades. The NFC East drew mostly low marks.

NJ.com takes on post-draft fallout: Which Giants should be nervous for their job? Not surprisingly, the other receiver from LSU on the roster makes the list.

Vegas isn't so hot on the Giants right now. Bovada released its latest 2015 Super Bowl odds, pegging the Giants once again at 40/1. There's also a few other prop bets in there, such as Rookie of the Year, something related to Johnny Manziel and more.

The myth of Jerry Reese, shrewd drafter, is just a myth, ESPN New York's Dan Graziano writes. He says Reese hasn't had a good draft since 2007 and ... that's kind of hard to argue? Still seems overly harsh, though. This one should spur some good discussion.
