Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Dave Gettleman has done this before

There has been plenty of snickering about how 69-year-old Giants’ GM Dave Gettleman will negotiate a virtual NFL Draft while sitting in his basement using Internet videoconferencing technology.

Turns out, though, Gettleman has more experience than any of the league’s other GMs at this sort of thing. Gettleman ran Day 3 of the Carolina Panthers’ 2014 NFL Draft via Skype from a Massachusetts hotel room after attending his son Sam’s college graduation.

He even pulled off a trade.

“It works, I’m telling you,” Gettleman said by phone after Carolina’s final pick. “It works. They got to see my handsome face and I got to see theirs. The process was really the same. It really was.

”You always want to think optimistically and just hope that it’s going to work electronically. There were times where it was a little choppy in terms of the video.”

So, relax, Giants fans. Dave can do this.
