Good morning, New York Giants fans! With only nine days left before the 2016 NFL Draft, let's look at some of the draft-related stories that might impact the New York Giants.

We have talked at length about Georgia linebacker Leonard Floyd. The New York Post adds to the Floyd discussion by writing that "go against the way the team has operated in the draft for the last 32 years." Paul Schwartz of The Post says the Giants "are intrigued" by Floyd.

We have also spent a great deal of time talking about injured linebackers Myles Jack of UCLA and Jaylon Smith of Notre Dame. The big story Monday involved rumors about the condition of Jack's knee, and The Sporting News says Jack's career will either be a drea, or a nightmare.There was also, however, more evidence that teams are concerned about Smith's future.

Chad Reuter of has listed five prospects likely to slide in the draft.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller has ranked the top edge rushers in the draft class. A favorite of our own Chris Pflum tops the list.

Shaq Lawson tells that teams were satisfied by the medical re-check on his shoulder.

Todd McShay of ESPN lists offensive tackle, defensive end, outside linebacker, wide receiver, and free safety as the Giants' biggest draft needs. Agree or disagree?
