Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Today is the final day of the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine. Let’s check some of the headlines as this year’s Underwear Olympics wraps us.

New York Giants: LB Anthony Barr

2018 team: Vikings | Age: 27

Barr's best days might already be gone, but he's best-suited to land on a team that utilizes him correctly. He's a dropback linebacker who excels at rushing the passer. If he can replicate his sophomore campaign of 2015, in which he finished with elite grades in coverage while also bringing down a career-high 27 QB pressures, he becomes the perfect addition to a Giants linebacking corps that lacks playmakers.

It's been called a good year for defensive linemen and edge-rushers since evaluators started looking at the 2019 draft class in August 2018, but following an epic day of workouts for the group at the NFL Scouting Combine, it's fair to call this one of the best groups ever.

Mississippi State's Montez Sweat headlines that group after his show-stealing performance.

Whether it’s Sweat or someone else, would it really be a shocker if the Giants selected a pass rusher sixth overall? Not to me it wou;dn’t.
