Good morning, New York Giants' fans! Here are a few Giants-related headlines for you to digest before you head off to enjoy whatever activities you have planned for your Sunday.

Damontre Moore knows the Giants brought in Robert Ayers to help replace Justin Tuck. Moore, though, is hoping to earn an expanded role in his second season.

"I just want to put the team in the best position to win. And honestly, I like competition. It either brings out the best in you or it crumbles you. And me being the type of person that I am, I love true competition. So if we had drafted a d-end high, it wouldn't be nothing but motivation for me to work harder. Once the draft came and went, a few people talked to me about the Giants having confidence in me. Yes, I'm happy they have confidence in me, but at the end of the day, I know they'll bring in the best person to help us win."

CBS Sports figures that South Carolina defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles is the most likely undrafted free agent to make the Giants' 53-man roster.

Speaking of those rookies, The Football Educator opines that the late NFL Draft will hurt the development of the players just selected in the draft.

Backyard Banter grades the draft, but not in the normal way. 'Banter' grades the draft based on the jersey numbers the rookies have selected. Their question about the Giants is why first-round pick Odell Beckham Jr. took the number 13?

Speaking of Beckham, NFL.com pretty much dissed the 12th pick in the draft in a look at which rookie wide receivers will have the best first seasons.

Here is something we did not know about Giants' running back Rashad Jennings. He has some unique dietary habits.

Giants' linebacker Spencer Paysinger says there is "no way" the teams's linebacker position can be a considered a weak link.
