NCAA Football: Citrus Bowl-Michigan vs Alabama Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The 2020 NFL Draft has come and gone and now we have ten new New York Giants to get to know.

There is usually a lull in the news cycle in the period after the NFL Draft, and that is particularly true this year. With everything going on, teams are running “virtual off-seasons” and the Giants won’t be holding OTA’s or mini-camps for the time being.

So The Chris and Joe Show decided to take the opportunity to take you inside the scouting process and give our listeners an in-depth breakdown of the newest Giants. Today we are once again joined by Nick Falato to take an in-depth look at safety Xavier McKinney, the Giants’ second round pick out of Alabama.
