It’s always noteworthy when the a member of the New York Giants’ front office makes an appearance at a school’s pro day.
Normally we take note of where general manager Jerry Reese shows up, because that has been linked to who the Giants might favor in the first round. He already made waves by showing up to watch Mitchell Trubisky at the North Carolina Pro Day and Zach Cunningham at Vanderbilt.
Thursday, vice president of college scouting Marc Ross was spotted at the Ohio State Pro Day.

Ross is the number two man in the Giants’ organization when it comes to the draft and is one of the people chiefly in charge of setting up their big board, so his presence is definitely worth paying attention to.
As per usual, Ohio State has a bevy of talented prospects entering the draft this year. Their top two, cornerback Marshon Lattimore and safety Malik Hooker, seem unlikely to make it to the Giants at 23rd overall, and the odds of corner Gareon Conley falling that far have decreased significantly since the scouting combine and the injuries to Sidney Jones and Fabian Moreau.
However, OSU still sports talented players like C/G Pat Elflein, ILB Raekwon McMillan, WR/RB Curtis Samuel, and WR Noah Brown.
So far the Giants haven’t been linked to any OSU prospects but we’ll update if any information regarding interviews or private workouts comes to light. And stay tuned to Big Blue View to find out if Reese makes an appearance anywhere today.
