Portland State offensive lineman Cornelius Edison, the 2014 FCS Rimington Award winner as the best center at that level, has schedule a pre-draft visit with the New York Giantsper a report from Pat Traina. He was an All-American at the Football Championship Subdivision level.

Edison, 6-foot-3, 307 pounds, is considered a candidate to compete at both guard and center at the NFL level. He played left guard for three seasons at Portland State, finishing his career by playing center in 2014.

Here is a little about Edison from a scouting report by Tony Pauline of Draft Insider:

Edison was a solid small-school blocker but a marginal athlete with limited upside for the next level.

Pauline does not believe Edison is a player who will be drafted. Perhaps, though, the Giants look at him as a potential late-round pick or a potential undrafted free agent who could compete for a spot. In a review of Edison's work at the Portland State pro day, Gil Brant of NFL.com also pegged Edison as a priority free agent.

The Giants already added a young center/guard candidate to their roster earlier in the offseason when they signed former CFL offensive lineman of the year Brett Jones.
