Good morning, New York Giants fans!
I am looking forward to the next College Football Season and going back to school to tell College’s Football’s story on Eli’s Places. Next fall on ESPN+. pic.twitter.com/qm5DdlGLG2— Eli Manning (@EliManning) March 8, 2021

The belief is the Giants will re-sign or tag (again) emerging star Leonard Williams, leaving his 27-year-old teammate Tomlinson — who has started every game since New York drafted him in the second round in 2017 — as a premier player in the UFA market (assuming he doesn’t get tagged himself). The 2021 draft class is considered very weak for defensive tackles, which could recession-proof the FA interior group to a degree — even in the second wave, where the likes of Denver’s Shelby Harris, Tennessee’s DaQuan Jones, Chicago’s Roy Robertson-Harris, Cleveland’s Larry Ogunjobi and New England’s Adam Butler should do well.
For Giants fans who have watched Tomlinson since he was drafted in 2017, it comes as no surprise that he will likely command a decent sized price tag. He has played very well in his time in New York, and could find himself elsewhere due to the salary restrictions and decisions that the Giants face.
NY Post writer Paul Schwartz makes his case for why the Giants should take Kyle Pitts at No. 11 and play him alongside Evan Engram to form a dangerous tight end duo.
The Athletic’s Dan Duggan breaks down each of the Giants most pressing needs as free agency approaches.
Got the following #’s from well regarded speed coach Ryan Capretta of @proactivesp. Jayson Oweh: 4.34 hand/ 4.38 laser —> Jaycee Horn: 4.39 hand/ 4.42 laser. —> Micah Parsons: 4.41 hand/ 4.44 laser. Capretta correctly timed Isaiah Simmons last year at 4.38 laser b4 the combine.— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) March 8, 2021
South Carolina’s Jaycee Horn, and Penn State defenders Micah Parsons and Jayson Oweh are potential draft targets for the Giants. While Horn and Parsons have (justifiably) received a lot of hype, Oweh’s 40 time might be one of the most impressive feats you will see this scouting/draft season. Standing at 6-foot-5 and weight 256 pounds, a defensive end of his size and speed running a sub-4.4 40-yard dash is rare.
