Wednesday marks the second day of practice for the Senior Bowl, the biggest of the All-Star showcase games for NFL Draft prospects. The New York Giants always play their cards close to the vest when it comes to the draft, and most of the time you shouldn't read into who they reportedly meet with or talk to, but those tidbits are still interesting.
So, let's go through what we have heard relating to the Giants thus far during Senior Bowl week.
Giants GM Jerry Reese behind me talking about their need for OL and impact players— Ian Wharton (@NFLFilmStudy) January 20, 2015
Ravens are talking with Eric Rowe in depth and Giants are meeting with Devin Smith— Ian Wharton (@NFLFilmStudy) January 21, 2015
Smith, in case you don't know, is a speedy wide receiver from Ohio State. CBS Sports lists the 6-foot, 190-pound Smith as a their No. 85 overall prospect and gives him a third-round grade. Smith caught 33 passes for 931 yards in 2014, an incredible 28.2 yards per catch, with 12 touchdowns.
For what it's worth, heard Giants especially interested in OL, LB + S crop down here. Obvious, but sounds like more than one OL is the plan.— Conor Orr (@ConorTOrr) January 21, 2015
