The New York Giants’ draft is over.
But that doesn’t mean that their scouts, coaches, and front office executives’ day is done. One (potential) upside of the Giants only having a pair of picks on the third day is that while the rest of the NFL was still navigating the draft, the Giants were able to work the phones with potential undrafted free agents.
“Kevin Abrams [assistant GM] runs that. He’s already spoken to everybody,” GM Dave Gettleman said. “First of all, as Pat [Shurmur] likes to say, you don’t win a toaster for being the first team to get to 90 players. Our goal is not to get to 90; our goal is to get to the right players. If we only get to 85, then we get to 85. If we get to 80, we get to 80. I’m not stressed out about it. We will target certain players that we want and we’re going to do our best to go get them. I told you the Andrew Norwell story, the Philly Brown story, we’ll do that. And that means – you guys understand you’ve got an undrafted rookie salary cap. You only get x amount of dollars that you can spend. So, we will use that as wisely as we can.”
Will one of these young men be the next Victor Cruz?
