Good morning, New York Giants fans!

So ... Michael Strahan’s whole ‘filled in gap” thing was an elaborate April Fool’s prank after all. I hate April Fool’s pranks.

Nico Collins: 2021 NFL Draft Prospect Interview Series | The Draft Network

From Collins:

I attack the ball in the air. I have that alpha mentality. It’s my ball. You have to be physical. You have to play big. I just built my mindset that way. When the ball is in the air, it’s mine. That’s my mindset every single time the ball’s in the air. When I’m running those deep vertical routes, that’s what’s going through my mind. I’ve already decided that I’m one that’s coming down with this ball right now.

Collins remains one of my favorite receivers in this class. I would be thrilled to see the Giants grab him somewhere in the middle rounds.
