May 23 In optimal situations, Eli Manning sits among the NFL's beset quarterbacks, in some cases between the Colts' Andrew Luck and Patriots' Tom Brady. In non-optimal situations, the comparisons aren't as favorable. In some cases, he ranks below the Jets' Geno Smith, Kyle Orton and Josh McCown. He ranks above nobody. Manning was rated Pro Football Focus' worst quarterback under pressure in 2014.

The Giants have not yet indicated who would replace Will Beatty, but Ereck Flowers was already taking reps at left tackle during minicamp, and the team brass have indicated that they see him at that position long-term.

May 22 In the week before organized team activities begin, the Giants were thrown a curveball when Will Beatty suffered a torn pectoral muscle during weight training. The left tacklehas an expected recovery time of approximately five to six months after undergoing surgery Wednesday.
The left tackle spot could fall to Pugh or Flowers, as both played on the left side in college, although scouts are nearly unanimous that neither is best-suited to left tackle. The Beatty injury means the anticipated move of Pugh from right tackle inside to a guard spot must be shelved.

May 21 Left tackle Will Beatty tore his pectoral muscle on Wednesday, an injury that is not considered as serious as the dreaded ACL or Achilles tear, but is still serious enough to warrant a lengthy recovery period.
It's unclear what the Giants will do to fill the position. They selected Ereck Flowers (University of Miami) in the first round of the draft and have spoken of him as their left tackle of the future, but it's unclear if he will be prepared for the important job of protecting Eli Manning's blind side as a rookie.

How will Landon Collins' rookie year compare to previous safeties taken in the first two rounds. The higher the draft pick, the greater the expectations. That's the unavoidable reality for rookies in the NFL, but Landon Collins doesn't mind. In fact, he's out to prove he should have been taken earlier.

May 20 Ryan Tannehill's new deal and what it means for Giants' Eli Manning and the QB market. If Manning puts up comparable statistics this season to 2014, he should be in Roethlisberger range, especially when quarterbacks such as Tannehill, Smith and Kaepernick are collecting their whopping paychecks.

The ex-Giants player formerly known as the "Touchdown Maker" thinks this year's group of receivers has the potential to score lots of them. Stephen Baker, a wide receiver with the Giants from 1987-1992, won a Super Bowl with the team in 1990, including a 14-yard touchdown pass from Jeff Hostetler late in the 2nd quarter. Baker still keeps a close eye on his former team.

Brett Jones is 23 years old and entering his third professional season. He spent the past two years playing (and excelling) in the CFL, where the rules and level of play are in stark contrast to what he's going to see in the NFL. The speed of the players is different. The size of the players is different. Even the rules are different.

May 18 The most intriguing rookie storylines at New York Giants' OTAs. This rookie class - both draft picks and undrafted free agents - is being counted upon to fill in some of the cracks along the foundation of a Giants team that has missed the playoffs in the last three seasons.

May 14 Odell Beckham Jr. will appear on the cover of this year's Madden 16 video game, an honor that typically goes to the most exciting player in the league. He is the first Giants player and the youngest player ever to earn the distinction.
But will he continue to be an amazing player? That's the question that's asked about every athlete who lands on the cover of Madden. For years, the game has been known for "cursing" its coverboys, with struggles befalling many NFL stars in the season that they've landed on the box.
Beckham was named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year last season after catching 91 passes for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns. His on-field exploits included his famed one-handed touchdown catch against the Dallas Cowboys, and a slew of Giants franchise records broken.

Jon Stewart mocks Tom Brady suspension: 'He wins again!'
Tom Brady could have strong chance at winning DeflateGate appeal

May 12 Giants sign four undrafted free agents following rookie tryouts. The newest Giants are running back Kenneth Harper of Temple, wide receiver Ben Edwards of Richmond, tight end Will Tye of Stony Brook and defensive tackle Carlif Taylor of Southern Connecticut State.

Eli Manning wasn't happy at all to hear the news that his friend, Tom Brady, was suspended by the NFL in the wake of DeflateGate. Then again, the Giants quarterback said, rules are rules.
Eli Manning says Deflategate revelations 'didn't look good,' feels for Patriots' Tom Brady. "Any time you lose a starting quarterback for four games and draft picks, it's a pretty big statement."

NFL News
The NFL suspended Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady for the first four games of the season, fined the New England Patriots $1 million and took away two draft picks Monday as punishment for deflating footballs used in the AFC title game.

May 11 The Giants undrafted free agents (UDFAs) aren't the draft picks. They're aren't strictly tryout players either. The group of six are somewhere in between. But history says that at least one of the Giants' UDFAs has a chance of sticking.

May 10 For the first time since taking over as defensive coordinator almost four months ago, Steve Spagnuolo talked publicly about what Giants fans can expect from the defense this season. They should be excited if it's anywhere near what they saw the first time around.
Does Giants' mad defense scientist have any magic left? Steve Spagnuolo wasn't a magician as a head coach for the Rams and he wasn't a magician as defensive coordinator for the Saints. Coughlin brought him back because he believes Spagnuolo has more magic left in him.

Ben McAdoo and the offensive staff immediately went to work breaking down film of the 2014 season, but he sounded most excited about tailoring his West Coast system to suit the Giants' offensive personnel, including the "new toys" the team acquired this offseason.
No more installation. No more getting-to-know-you. No more unearthing something new every day. No more first-year offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo. "It's not a system any more, it's our offense," McAdoo said on Saturday after rookie minicamp practice.
Ben McAdoo thought the Giants finally brought to the field the concepts and system he had been preaching and they played with some success in the final six games of the 2014 season. But don't dare ask him if they will hit the ground running in 2015 because of that.

The majority of the Giants' rookie minicamp is in the books after a roughly two-hour practice on an overcast and chilly Saturday afternoon. Here are a few observations from Saturday's practice.
Undrafted free agent tight end Matt LaCosse, who stood out in Day 1's workouts for his work in blocking (or what passes for blocking in a non-contact drills), showed off his pass receiving abilities on Day 2, catching every catchable ball thrown his way.
Five takeaways from Giants Rookie Mini-Camp, which wraps up Sunday. 1. The Giants are emphasizing the defensive history of the franchise. 2. Jackson officially switched to safety. 3. Flowers and Collins set stage for OTAs, training camp. 4. Odighizuwa, Thompson, Davis, Hart get their feet wet. 5. Players to keep an eye on.

May 9 The Giants held their first practice of rookie mini-camp on Friday. Sixty-five players -- the Giants' six draft picks, rookie free agents and prospects on a tryout basis -- hit the field for drills along with their coaches and coordinators.
Rookie Minicamp Report: Day 1. First, no tackling is allowed. The players are not in full pads, so drills and any teamwork is being conducted at half speed. Second, just because a player did work at a certain position doesn't mean anything at this point. Third, the purpose of the minicamps is for the coaches to teach and evaluate.
Bennett Jackson didn't even play defense in high school. He was a wide receiver, recruited by Notre Dame at the position and playing it for his first two seasons in South Bend. Coaches decided that he would be better off on the other side of the line of scrimmage and he was converted to cornerback. So moving from corner to safety this offseason? That's hardly a switch at all.

What's that old saying again? Something about sinning and casting the first stone? That seems to be the idea behind Youteamcheats.com, a site that breaks down the misdeeds of all 32 NFL teams, including the local franchises.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be suspended in the fallout of Deflategate with an announcement coming next week according to a New York Daily News report.
Tom Brady will be the highest-profile player ever suspended in the 96-year history of the NFL. Roger Goodell's decision is expected to be announced next week, and it is no longer a matter of if the NFL commissioner will suspend Brady, but for how long he will suspend him.

May 8 Giants upbeat about DB Mykkele Thompson's potential. he was as shocked as anyone when the Giants selected him in the fifth round. On Friday he'll be one of 60 to 65 players on the field for the start of the team's rookie minicamp.

May 7 When Landon Collins was still on the board at the top of the second round, general manager Jerry Reese felt that the picks they would have to give up to land him at No. 33 (their fourth round pick, No. 108 overall, and an extra seventh rounder, No. 245) was well worth getting what is essentially an extra first rounder.

What can you expect from Giants Rookie Mini-Camp? Giants.com's Dan Salomone highlights three things you can expect to happen at Rookie Mini-Camp.

Donte Rumph, humiliated on 'Hard Knocks' while with Falcons, invited by Giants to rookie minicamp. Rumph knows there will be dozens of tryout players at Giants camp, and maybe one or two might get a contract. But he's refusing to quit because quitting is not what the "Tent of Faith" is all about.

NFL News
After three months of breathlessly waiting, we are left with a 243-page Wells Report that should leave Roger Goodell (and Troy Vincent) no recourse other than to suspend Tom Brady for a minimum of two games when the 2015 NFL season begins.
The stud Patriots quarterback all but certainly knew that footballs were illegally deflated to his liking for this year's AFC Championship game, according to a damning NFL-commissioned report -- which also exposed how Brady was reviled over his demand for soft pigskins.

May 6 Giants' Super Bowl 50 odds better than expected after losing season. Odds to win Super Bowl 50: Seahawks 11/2 Packers Patriots 15/2 Colts 8/1 Cowboys 10/1 Broncos 14/1 Eagles 18/1 Cardinals 20/1 Ravens 25/1 Giants: 25/1.

Was Giants' draft enough to make them Super Bowl contenders again? There's little room for long-term projects at this stage, and the Giants appear to realize that. In the first three rounds of the draft, they added three prospects who should have a chance to make this team better immediately.

Let's suppose for a minute that the Giants are "in the mix". Let's go even further. Let's suppose the Giants are the team that eventually signs La'el Collins if and when he is completely exonerated in the murder of Brittany Mills. What would the Giants do with Collins?

May 5 Alabama coach Nick Saban knows a first-round draft pick when he sees one, as he's coached 16 of them the past five years. That's why Saban does not understand why safety Landon Collins dropped out of the first round this year. The Giants were delighted Collins slid.

Two Giants named biggest steals of NFL Draft. Chris Burke of Sports Illustrated named the top steals of the 2015 NFL Draft, which concluded Saturday in Chicago. His list led off with All-American safety Landon Collins out of Alabama, whom the Giants traded up to select with the first pick of the second round. Burke also mentioned defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa, the Giants' third-round pick from UCLA.

This is how the Giants operate in the NFL Draft. They make their evaluations and worry almost exclusively about themselves. It doesn't matter if they are the only team speaking to a prospect or if the reported interest is strong.

Just when you thought Odell Beckham Jr. couldn't rack up any more accolades, he's in the running for another one. On Monday, EA Sports announced that Beckham, the Giants' up-and-coming star receiver, is a candidate to be on the cover of the next Madden football video game.

May 4 The Giants left the 2015 NFL Draft with six new players, and likely at least two immediate Day 1 starters. With their highest pick (No. 9 overall) since 2004, was that enough? Did they address enough needs and collect talent commensurate with their draft position?

5 Giants takeaways: Did they draft the next Justin Tuck? This seemed to be a workmanlike draft for the Giants, who filled needs with sensible picks. The six new players could be contributors and never touch the ball. A year after securing Odell Beckham Jr., the Giants bulked up.

For the last five seasons, Antrel Rolle was a key figure for the Giants, reliable and durable on the field and an emotional leader off of it. Landon Collins knows all about this legacy, but the Giants' second-round pick isn't the least bit worried about replacing Rolle.

May 3 Special Report - It is impossible to judge the merits of a draft within the first two-three days. More likely, it all won't come clear for the first two-three years. And as the nearly-sainted Bill Parcells used to say: "You know that a full 25 percent of kids drafted won't make it to a roster in the NFL." But the draft is done, for whatever good it has done, and the Giants appear to have come away with what they needed as well as picking talented players in the right rounds.

For the teams on the outside of the playoffs looking in, the reality is they usually have big holes on their roster and they need to use the draft to fill them. And the Giants sure seemed to do a terrific job of that this year. Just take a look at what their biggest needs were heading into the draft.

Theme of Giants' draft strategy: asserting dominance. No doubt, the Giants want to get back into the business of dominating the line of scrimmage, and they believe some of the youngsters they plucked out of the draft give them a fighting chance.

Experts grade New York Giants 2015 Draft. After seven rounds in three days, the 2015 NFL Draft concluded Saturday in Chicago as 256 college prospects turned pro across the league. Of those, the Giants drafted six players, who will now be linked together as the franchise's 2015 Draft Class. Giants.com gathered rapid reactions and early grades from media outlets around the country.

Giants' top pick, Ereck Flowers, brings one-man support team: his father. There was no agent because Flowers has chosen to go without one. His only official adviser is his father, who raised him as a single parent after Flowers's mother died when he was 6 years old.

Giants undrafted free agents signings. Just minutes after the NFL Draft ended, the Giants began adding even more players. They agreed to terms with several undrafted free agents.

May 2 Thirty-two names were called in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday night. Alabama safety Landon Collins was not one of them, and now he's out to prove that 31 of those teams made a big mistake.
Though invited to stay for Friday's second and third rounds in Chicago, Collins instead chose to fly home to Louisiana to be with his family. "I was hurt more than anything," Collins said. "It was tough, but I walked out with my head up."
The Giants sent their own second-round pick (40th overall), fourth-rounder (108th) and a seventh-rounder (245th) to the Titans for the right to draft Collins. The 6-0, 228-pound Collins will help fill a critical void for Big Blue, which had just three untested safeties (Cooper Taylor, Nat Berhe and Josh Gordy) on the roster.

With the 74th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the New York Giants selected defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa out of UCLA. n 2014, Odighizuwa was a starter in all 13 games as a team co-captain, tying the team lead with 11.5 tackles for loss. He was credited with a career-best 61 tackles which ranked fourth on the team and was a second-team All-Pac-12 selection by the coaches.
Odighizuwa has the ability to play any position along the defensive line, and the Giants believe he can be a sneaky-quick pass-rusher when he lines up on the interior of the line. But there will be a learning curve, said Coughlin. Odighizuwa will likely begin his career playing mostly on special teams, although he has the upside to eventually play left defensive end.

NFC East
How the Giants' NFC East rivals did in the NFL Draft first round.

May 1 The Giants, who have been steadily reconstructing their offensive line, tonight added a large and vital building block when they selected tackle Ereck Flowers on the first round of the NFL Draft.
The thorn in the side of the Giants the last two years has been a big one, and the process to remove it has been painful. Too many times their best offensive plans were thwarted by Eli Manning getting chased from the pocket, or worse -- being tossed to the ground.
Among other things, the Giants' selection of offensive tackle Ereck Flowers means that last year's starting tackles, Will Beatty and Justin Pugh, are officially on notice.

Apr 30 Jerry Reese struck gold with the 12th pick in the NFL draft last year, getting a player who far exceeded even the Giants' expectations. But that doesn't mean the pressure is off the Giants general manager. He doesn't just need to draft an impact player with the ninth pick. He needs to draft a player who can have an impact now.

The Giants are coming off two strong drafts and need a third to tip the scales back to playoff football. That process begins Thursday night in Chicago with the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Apr 28 Could the Giants make a pick to protect Eli Manning and select someone like Ereck Flowers, shore up the defense with Vic Beasley or gamble on the talent of running back Todd Gurley.

Eli Manning recounts his NFL Draft Day experience. Neither of the two biggest names in this year's NFL draft -- quarterbacks Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota -- will be attending the festivities in Chicago in person. Then again, not everyone who attends the draft gets that kind of warm, fuzzy experience.

Mr. Clean. That's who the Giants have been looking to draft in recent years. Players who have no rap sheets, no off-the-field problems, no history of injuries. If you were a team captain in college, even better. But it's clear from the last two draft cycles -- the two the Giants believe have been the most successful in recent years -- that the team puts a premium on character when deciding which players they should select.

The Giants whittled down their running back depth on Monday, waiving Michael Cox, who suffered a season-ending injury in 2014. Cox, a seventh round draft pick out of UMass in 2013, saw playing time mostly as a kick returner over the last two seasons and actually was released prior to the start of 2014 before being re-signed to the practice squad. Cox was promoted to the active roster on October 6, but suffered a broken leg against the Seattle Seahawks, ending his season.

Apr 27 Eli Manning's contract with the team expires at the end of the upcoming season, and he confirmed Sunday that there have been no conversations with the Giants about an extension.
Manning leaves the drafting and player evaluation for the draft to the experts (not including Justin Pugh). But he wouldn't complain if the team's first pick is an offensive lineman that will help protect the Giants quarterback.

The Giants haven't had many Rookies of the Year. Beckham, who caught 91 passes for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in only 12 games, was only the second ever to win the most recognized version of the award, following Lawrence Taylor in 1981 (Jeremy Shockey won some accolades in 2002). After hitting a home run with those picks of Taylor and Shockey, though, the Giants were unable to follow up with another hit.

An exhaustive ranking of every NFL team's draft haul since 2010. Who is the best team at finding players in the NFL Draft? Who is the worst?

Apr 26 The Giants, by virtue of their lousy 6-10 season in 2014, own the No. 9 pick in the NFL Draft, a three-day event in Chicago that starts Thursday night with the first round. So, if you follow this line of reasoning, the Giants got Beckham at No. 12 and he turned into the Rookie of the Year. They are sitting at No. 9 this year -- three spots higher -- thus should get a player who should be at least as good, perhaps not right away, but certainly in time.
This is the time and the draft to focus on the offensive line. It's been a long time coming, really, and there are plenty of people inside the Giants' organization who feel that way. It's been a long time coming, really, and there are plenty of people inside the Giants' organization who feel that way. You can blame the last two miserable seasons on whatever you want, but nothing has been a bigger root cause than the play of an offensive line that has often hovered between mediocre and disastrous.

Snee said he liked the toughness and nastiness of Iowa's Brandon Scherff. "He's got that in him," Snee said of the fire he and the Giants like to see from their linemen.

Apr 25 Special Report - What does the schedule tell us about the Giants' 2015 chances? You may have noticed that the 2015 NFL schedule came out this week. The announcement of said slate has become an almost ridiculous spectacle, broadcast on not one but two networks (ESPN and NFL Network), while social media was able to flush out a few key games during the afternoon before the official release. Right off the bat, the Giants will earn their keep with three NFC games, including the opener at NFC East winner Dallas and a Week 3 home game against division rival Washington with retooling Atlanta right in the middle in Week 2.

Running back Rashad Jennings can't begin to tell you what a difference it makes to be in Year 2 of the West Coast offense compared to last year at this time, when learning offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's system was like learning a new language.
