NFL mock draft 2018 1.4: All 32 picks. | Giants mock draft 2018 roundup.
Feb 24 The Giants have been awarded a fourth-round compensatory pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. A total of 32 compensatory selections were awarded to 15 teams. The Giants are one of five teams to get a fourth-round compensatory pick.
Feb 20 Special Report - Giant fans might point to 1979, when the Giants picked quarterback Phil Simms in the first round of the draft as the best day in franchise history. Others might move ahead just a couple of years to 1981, when they chose linebacker Lawrence Taylor as their first round selection. Still others might select 2004, when the trade winds struck and the Giants came away with quarterback Eli Manning in the first round. But the worst day in the Giants' first-round drafting history?
Feb 18 The top five needs the Giants GM must address in these next few months to get the franchise back on track.
coach Pat Shurmur's staff is complete. The Giants officially announced the
16-member staff on Thursday afternoon.
Shurmur finally rounded out his coaching staff on Tuesday by hiring Mike Shula
as the Giants' new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Shula, 52, is
the son of the NFL's all-time winningest coach, Don Shula.
Feb 13 One year ago, the Giants staged their version of a Valentine's Day massacre, cutting popular receiver Victor Cruz and starting running back Rashad Jennings. The Giants have already undergone tremendous upheaval, as for the first time in 39 years they will enter a season with a new head coach and new general manager. Reshaping the roster is the next order of business.
Giants' needs on offense vs. defense. Three Giants writers discuss where the Giants need to improve the most to compete in 2018. Do the Giants need to improve more on offense or defense to get back on track in 2018?
Jerry Reese didn't make any significant upgrades to the offensive line last offseason and that's a big part of the reason he's now referred to as "former Giants general manager Jerry Reese."
Paul Perkins entered his second NFL season as one of 32 starting running backs and finished it with fewer rushes than 95 other ball-carriers. It was a strange 2017 for Perkins, who was handed the starting job in the spring when the Giants cut veteran three-year starter Rashad Jennings to save money against the salary cap.
Feb 11 Pat Shurmur wanted to interview and, presumably, hire Kevin Stefanski as the Giants' new offensive coordinator, but the Vikings denied permission Saturday, ESPN reported. That means Stefanski stays in Minnesota, and Shurmur will likely next turn to Duce Staley, coming off a glorious Super Bowl victory as the Eagles' running backs coach.

Feb 10 Fact or Fiction: Giants Draft needs and predictions. Left tackle is the most important non-quarterback position in Pat Shurmur's offense.
Feb 8 Eight days after Super Bowl LI ended, the Giants cut fan favorite Victor Cruz and starting running back Rashad Jennings. Now that Super Bowl LII is in the books, it's that time of year again. Here are six players in danger of becoming salary cap casualties for the Giants.
Former Giants GM candidate Louis Riddick explains how he'd handle Odell Beckham's contract. Riddick doesn't think the Giants should wait to give Beckham an extension.
Butler is saying goodbye to the Patriots, hello to free agency and "trust
me" to NFL general managers. Is New England-sounding Giants general manager
Dave Gettleman listening?
Feb 6 The Giants hired Deshea Townsend as assistant defensive backs coach and Ben Wilkerson as assistant offensive line coach on Monday afternoon.
One way for the Giants to quickly improve is to steal some of the top players from the Eagles and Patriots, who just met in Super Bowl LII.
Feb 5 The Giants only need to look to the Eagles for motivation, as Philadelphia went 7-9 in 2016 before going 13-3 this season en route to a title. How can the Giants duplicate that turnaround? Here are six things that need to happen.
Football fans who tuned in to watch Super Bowl LII between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles were treated to quite the performance during the third quarter of Sunday's game. Beckham and Eli Manning stole the show in one of the most entertaining commercials.
The Patriots managed to lose while Tom Brady threw for a Super Bowl-record 505 yards. But maybe with Malcolm Butler on the field - the whole game, half the game, a third of the game, however long - Brady wouldn't have had to win the biggest shootout in Super Bowl history.Eli
Feb 4 Eli Manning recalls Giants run to Super Bowl XLII. That team was one of the most successful and memorable in the 93-year history of the franchise, one that delivered its seventh championship and was honored on its 10th anniversary during the 2017 season. | More
Randy Moss reflects on losing to Giants in Super Bowl XLII: 'They gave us fits, man'. Less than three minutes separated Randy Moss and the New England Patriots from the first 19-0 season in NFL history, but the All-Pro wide receiver knew victory was far from certain. | More
Feb 3 Eli Manning called the Giants' decision to want him back for the 2018 season "a starting point." In reality, it's the start of the end. Manning has two years left on his contract with the Giants. He said he has no interest in initiating a departure from the team by waiving his no-trade clause.
Now that the new regime of Dave Gettleman and Pat Shurmur has endorsed him as the Giants' quarterback in 2018, the next step in Eli Manning's attempt to keep a firm grasp on his starting job is this: How does he withstand the addition of a Josh Rosen or Sam Darnold with the No. 2 pick in the draft?
Manning says he won't train Giants QB successor, but won't turn his back either.
"It's not your job to mentor somebody. I wouldn't look at it as that role. I would
look at it as it's my job to prepare and compete and be ready to play each and
every game. In that process you are always talking football, always helping out
the other guys in the room."
Feb 2 The biggest challenge for new Giants GM Dave Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur will be rebuilding an offensive line that has been the team's biggest weakness in recent years. To complicate matters, the Giants only have two starting offensive linemen under contract for next season. And veteran guard John Jerry and left tackle Ereck Flowers are hardly pieces to build around.
When Devon Kennard left the Giants' locker room at the end of the season headed toward free agency, he said he wanted to return to the team. Now that they have made permanent changes to their coaching staff, he REALLY wants to return.
Feb 1 The Redskins sent shock waves through the NFL by agreeing to a trade for Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith.The Giants can take solace in the fact that the Redskins are still a poorly run organization. They botched their quarterback situation at every step.
Pat Shurmur has only one spot open on his newly assembled Giants coaching staff: offensive coordinator. And, wouldn't you know, Shurmur and Duce Staley have a long and strong relationship.
Victor Cruz 'surprised' by no call from Giants in 2017, but not retired just yet. The NFL team most in need of midseason wide receiver help was the Giants, who lost Odell Beckham, Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris to season-ending injuries and had Sterling Shepard in and out of the lineup on a week-to-week basis.
Spagnuolo believes Ben McAdoo did an "outstanding job" and will be a head
coach in the NFL again. "We just had things kind of snowball the wrong way
this year. Sometimes when that ball gets rolling the wrong way it's hard to push
it back up and get going in the middle of it."
Shurmur's first coaching staff is rounding into shape. The latest addition
is Hal Hunter, a veteran offensive line coach, who fills that role with the Giants
and thus takes command of a unit that had its fingerprints all over last season's
Evan Engram productive, even if miscast, as a rookie. Engram's the team's 2017 first-round draft choice, was productive despite not being used by the Giants in accordance to the strengths he showed as a college player.
Johnny Manziel tweeted a video of himself and Odell Beckham Jr. working out in Los Angeles alongside Jamal Liggin, Beckham's long-term personal trainer. It was tagged "deadly combination." Just days after he met with newly hired head coach Pat Shurmur, who has made it abundantly clear that Beckham must clean up his act and carry himself in a manor befitting of the Giants.
Former Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams has a warning for any Giants players who will be playing under new GM Dave Gettleman. "He's your problem now," Williams said. Williams referred to his own personal experience of being cut by Gettleman, as well as the exit of five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Steve Smith, as to why he feels the way he does.
head coach Pat Shurmur has taken the first step in establishing his relationship
with Odell Beckham Jr. On ESPN Radio's "Golic and Wingo" show Monday
morning, Shurmur said he has already spoken to Beckham and believes the receiver
is "inspired" for next season.
Shurmur said when he was introduced as the 18th Giants head coach that he
is not going to chase good coaches out of the building. The majority of Ben McAdoo's
staff is already gone, hired elsewhere, but there will be a few holdovers.
Former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has no doubts about Jason Pierre-Paul's fit in new Giants defensive coordinator James Bettcher's scheme. In fact, the Cardinals were so convinced that Pierre-Paul could convert from a 4-3 defensive end to a 3-4 outside linebacker that they tried to sign him when he was a free agent after the 2015 season.
If you are a Giants fan who always swore you would root for anybody to beat the NFC East Division rival Eagles, Cowboys or Redskins in a Super Bowl, here is your test. Are you going to root for Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the Patriots to win a sixth Super Bowl title next Sunday night?
are Eli Manning's team again under Pat Shurmur, but drawing line in the sand
with Odell Beckham Jr. Eli Manning may get a contract extension before Odell Beckham
new coach is supposed to be a beacon of light for a struggling franchise -
a reason to believe in brighter days ahead. So it didn't seem like a good omen
when, just 25 seconds after Pat Shurmur was introduced as the new head coach of
the Giants, the lights in the auditorium suddenly went off.
Jan 26 Giants general manager Dave Gettleman said that new head coach Pat Shurmur plans to call offensive plays. How have offenses fared with head coaches calling the plays?
Jan 25 Giants
GM Dave Gettleman: Eli Manning and Odell Beckham aren't going anywhere. There's
a reasonable suggestion that the Giants should take a quarterback with the No.
2 overall pick in the draft, but Gettleman warned about the potential pitfalls
of such a move.
In what might have been a subtle jab at the previous coach, Giants general manager Dave Gettleman said Wednesday the franchise hired an adult in Pat Shurmur as head coach. "I really believe the head coach job for the New York Football Giants is a job for an adult and Pat is every bit of that," Gettleman said from the Senior Bowl practices.
Pat Shurmur isn't going to give up what got him here. Giants general manager Dave Gettleman told reporters in attendance at Senior Bowl practice Wednesday that Shurmur will call offensive plays in his first year as the team's head coach.
Report - So now that the Giants have announced Pat Shurmur as their new Head
Coach, the next real question on the table for this franchise involves how it
will choose to spend the first round selection, the second overall draft choice
in April's NFL Draft.
Pat Shurmur told the Giants that he believes he can win with Eli Manning as his quarterback, which is exactly what his soon-to-be new bosses wanted to hear. They don't believe Manning is finished. They also don't know who'll replace him when he is.
Pat Shurmur got to work quickly to fill his staff after officially being hired as Giants head coach on Monday night. By Tuesday night, it was reported that Shurmur will hire James Bettcher as defensive coordinator.
officially hire Vikings OC Pat Shurmur to be next head coach as rest of staff

Jan 22 Giants are now free to hire their next head coach. Now that the Vikings are eliminated from the playoffs - routed by the Eagles in Sunday night's NFC Championship - the Giants can hire Shurmur at any time. They are expected to meet with him Tuesday for a second interview and a contract will soon follow.
Pat Shurmur flew home with the Vikings on Sunday night and will be part of exit interviews with players on Monday. Then, at some point in the next day or so, he'll have an entrance interview with the Giants.
Vikings offensive coordinator and presumed Giants head coach Pat Shurmur walked
through the tunnels of Lincoln Financial Field after Sunday's 38-7 loss to the
Eagles, he came across a familiar face in quarterback Nick Foles. The two shared
an embrace. "Good for you, man, happy for you," Shurmur said with a
big smile. "Now go win it."
Jan 21 Dave Gettleman is changing 'everything' about Giants' draft process. Gettleman took a look at how the Panthers graded players, preferred that system to what he knew with the Giants, and retained it in Charlotte. Now he is bringing it to the Giants.
Whether it's reality based, the perception now is Pat Shurmur, when and if he is officially named Giants head coach, was the organization's third choice (behind Matt Patricia and Josh McDaniels) for the gig.
Like other NFL franchises, the Giants have good and bad memories of past head coaches. So before the Giants hire Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur (or anybody else for that matter), let's look back at the good, the bad and the ugly of the franchise's hiring of coaches.
Jan 20 Who played the most for the Giants this season? A total of 69 players saw action on offense and defense during a season that saw the depth chart decimated by injuries and disciplinary issues.
Jan 19 If Pat Shurmur wants to endear himself quickly to Giants fans, all he has to do is beat the Eagles on Sunday. Capturing the NFC championship and advancing to Super Bowl LII (which just so happens to be at the Vikings' home in Minneapolis) would be a great way to cap his tenure as the Vikings' offensive coordinator.
Pat Shurmur was always "infatuated" with the Giants job and is greatly intrigued with not only getting to work with Eli Manning as his career winds down, but also the possibility, thanks to the No. 2 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, to mold the team's next franchise quarterback.
Odell Beckham will thrive under Pat Shurmur, says Vikings WR Stefon Diggs. Odell Beckham Jr. should look forward to thriving under Shurmur as Giants head coach "because Pat knows how to get people the ball."
Eli Manning and new Giants general manager Dave Gettleman recently had their much-anticipated meeting, "Yes, it was a great meeting," Gettleman told The Post on Thursday. "Eli, obviously on this team, there's only three guys who are still here from when I left. Eli, Zak DeOssie and JPP [Jason Pierre-Paul]."
may not be their first, second or third choice, but if the Giants name Pat
Shurmur their next head coach, the man who currently employs him in Minnesota
believes he'll do a fine job.
One of the first orders of business Pat Shurmur will need to do once he is hired as head coach of the Giants will be to assemble a coaching staff. Many of the Giants assistants from last season have taken jobs elsewhere - mostly on the offensive side of the ball.
Jan 17 Giants fans should be pulling for Pat Shurmur, Vikings to win Super Bowl. Shurmur, 52, has been to a Super Bowl before at the end of the 2004 season as Donovan McNabb's quarterbacks coach in Philly, losing Super Bowl XXXIX to the New England Patriots, 24-21, in Jacksonville.
The Giants and Pat Shurmur - the Vikings offensive coordinator - made it clear Monday, without uttering a word in public, they want each other, although nothing can be made official until after the Vikings are done playing. If you want a glimpse into Pat Shurmur as the new head coach of the Giants, think of a slightly younger, much less round Andy Reid.
Here's Odell Beckham's last chance to become Giants leader. Pat Shurmur will be Beckham's third head coach, and the first two - Tom Coughlin and Ben McAdoo - couldn't make it past two seasons with him.
expected to hire Vikings OC Pat Shurmur as head coach with hopes he can fix
offense. Pat Shurmur knows quarterbacks.
does this mean for Shurmur's new coaching staff? It could mean Steve Spagnuolo
gets to stay as the defensive coordinator. The two got their NFL initiation in
1999 on Andy Reid's staff with the Eagles and spent eight years together in Philadelphia.
Jan 14 Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia is the No. 1 candidate for the Giants and Lions. This is the easiest decision Patricia will make in his head coaching career. Indications are Patricia and the Giants want each other with the Lions hoping his long-time association and friendship with Detroit GM Bob Quinn when they were together in New England for 12 years will be enough to attract him to the Motor City and keep him away from the bright lights of Broadway.
Giants can't be left at the coaching altar this time. Do not under any circumstance be left standing in this high-stakes game of musical chairs by Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia taking the Lions job and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels taking the Colts job and Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur taking the Cardinals job.
Jan 13 Devon Kennard is entering an offseason full of uncertainty. The Giants linebacker is set to become a free agent after completing his rookie contract. Kennard wants to return to the Giants, even though he knows the team will be much different after general manager Jerry Reese and head coach Ben McAdoo were fired in December.
Matt Patricia could be coordinating his final defensive game plan for the New England Patriots on Saturday night, before relocating four hours south to be the Giants' new head coach. It is unlikely, of course, that the AFC's top-seeded Patriots (13-3) will lose to the fifth-seeded Tennessee Titans (9-7) at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., in a prime-time NFL divisional round clash (8:15 p.m.).
coaching search is down to three. The next head coach of the Giants will be
Josh McDaniels, Matt Patricia or Pat Shurmur, with no surprise candidate looming,
and at this point all three are very much in the mix.
Jan 10 You are a general manager, and you are searching for a new head coach. And Bill Belichick is not available. And then you look at the records of those who branched out on their own from the Belichick tree, and you gasp. And so you begin reminding yourself that there is only one Belichick.
Giants' next head coach needs to fix broken offense - or bring on someone who can. The most important question arguably is one of the simplest: If you are our head coach, how will we score points?
Giants Head Coach Interview Tracker. A recap of the New York Giants' head coach interviews to-date: Steve Wilks, Panthers Defensive Coordinator - Pat Shurmur, Vikings Offensive Coordinator - Josh McDaniels, Patriots Offensive Coordinator/QB Coach - Matt Patricia, Patriots Defensive Coordinator - Steve Spagnuolo, Giants Interim Head Coach/Defensive Coordinator.
Jan 9 Odell Beckham pleads with Eli Apple to stop arguing with angry Giants fans on Twitter: 'Stop bro, ur better than that'. Beckham, 25, to his credit, told Apple that neither Beckham nor Apple was "good enough" this season and cautioned it's not "worth it" to respond to the nasty critics on Twitter.
Bill Belichick, yes Bill Belichick, be the next coach of the Giants? With
a report of turmoil in New England involving him, Tom Brady and Robert Kraft,
it certainly seems feasible.
Sullivan left quite the impression with his play-calling Week 6 in Denver.
The Broncos on Thursday reached an agreement with Sullivan, the Giants' offensive
coordinator the past two seasons, to be Denver's new quarterbacks coach.
Gettleman talks Giants rebuild, GM influences and the QB issue, what it means
to be a New York Giant: "I'd tell 'em: "You gotta understand: You're
playing for a flagship NFL franchise. You're representing a tradition of winning,
a tradition of Super Bowls. You've gotta live up to that. This isn't just some
place. And you gotta understand that right now."
Giants' coaching search continues to pick up steam. The first interview took
place on Wednesday, and there will be more to come in the next five days.
Gettleman wasn't only meeting with Steve Spagnuolo as the first candidate
to interview for the Giants' head coach vacancy on Wednesday. He also had his
first sit-down with cornerback Eli Apple, who was suspended for the final game
of the season.
have no choice: It's time to grab Eli Manning's successor. Gettleman will
meet soon with Manning and the summit will likely result in a resolution. Here's
hoping Manning will be on board with mentoring one of the young guns along with
Davis Webb - if given the chance.
Jan 3 New
Giants general manager Dave Gettleman made his first local media appearance
