In his report on Beal, Chris wrote that he gives the Giants “a young player with starter’s upside to develop.” Scouts generally liked the pick by the Giants.
First-round pick Saquon Barkley and fifth-round pick R.J. McIntosh remain unsigned. Barkley has said he will report to training camp next week regardless of whether he has a signed contract or not. McIntosh’s deal may be getting held up by whatever injury or condition caused him to miss all of the spring practices.
