New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo was center stage at the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday, and several interesting pieces of information came from that. On Thursday, Giants' General Manager Jerry Reese gets his turn at the podium. Reese will speak at 2:15 p.m. ET.

The GM is certain to be asked not only about the draft, but about free agents Jason Pierre-Paul, Robert Ayers, and Prince Amukamara, as well as the contract of wide receiver Victor Cruz. He is also almost certain to share very little information about any of those topics.

This, of course, is an important Combine, and an important offseason, for Reese and the Giants. The team has had three straight losing seasons, has had four straight without a playoff berth and has a new head coach. Co-owner John Mara chose to keep Reese in place as GM, but has made it clear that "Jerry knows this is on him" to get the Giants turned around.

On-field workouts begin Friday. Below, today's schedule and how to watch.
