Good morning New York Giants fans! Here are your news and notes for Tuesday, June 24th.

John Michael Schmitz projected as top rookie center, per

Chad Reuter selected the Giants’ second round pick to his projected “All-Rookie” team offense.

The Giants were stunned that John Michael Schmitz was still on the board when their second pick came, and it was an easy pick to solidify their center position. Schmitz was very highly regarded and widely regarded as one of the two top centers in the draft. It’s interesting that Reuter picked Schmitz over the more athletic Joe Tippman, who was selected 14 picks earlier by the New York Jets.
