General manager Jerry Reese is not helping head coach Tom Coughlin’s state of mind. Coughlin is not going to put any public pressure on the Giants’ general manager, but he’s annoyed at what’s going on with his wide receivers.
“His heart is with … talking to him, he would love to be with the Giants,” Hugh Freeney, Dwight’s father, told Sirius radio’s Adam Schein. “But the Giants unfortunately … doesn’t have the money for it. They’re broke.”
If Cruz doesn’t have a deal in time for an on-time arrival for training camp, he’ll be doing himself and the Giants a disservice.
The Giants are hoping that newly-draft quarterback Ryan Nassib never plays, but are going to make sure he’s ready in case Eli Manning ever misses a game.
The Giants are hoping that newly-drafted DT Johnathan Hankins will shore up their interior defense.
The Giants started the process of rebuilding their offensive line Thursday night by taking Justin Pugh of Syracuse with the 19th pick in the draft.
Reese wouldn’t tip his hand on who the team might target in the following rounds…
The team’s needs and its draft philosophy don’t match up well going into tonight’s first round of the NFL Draft, making a direct-hit prediction almost impossible. What to do?
The Giants own one pick in each of the seven rounds, plus a compensatory pick near the bottom of the seventh. Here’s a look at the Giants’ positional needs going into the NFL Draft.
The Giants have a glaring need at linebacker. Outside of getting the best available player — which could well be Alec Ogletree, anyway — that’s where the concentration of the first two days needs to be.
“It will get done at some point,” Giants co-owner John Mara told reporters on Monday in regard to a long-term extension for the New Jersey native. “Just be patient.”
Since the Giants make the draft their top priority, it makes sense to glance at the GM’s history as he counts down to the three-day selection process.
Heading into the NFL Draft on Thursday, look for the Giants to fill many holes on defense in the seven rounds. That doesn’t mean, of course, that general manager Jerry Reese will use the 19th pick overall to take a defensive player.
Going back to work is one thing. Going back to work with a fantastic goal in mind is quite another.
Cruz remained absent from the team’s voluntary offseason conditioning program on Thursday. Reese had no idea if he’d see the Pro Bowl standout during the program, training camp or even into the season.
