Experts on Giants Day 1 - Day 2 - Day 3How NFC East rivals did on Day 1 Day 2
Giants post-draft Power Ranking at No. 19. Other NFC East teams: the Cowboys down at No. 22, the Redskins at No. 28 and only the defending-champion Eagles up in the top 10.

May 11 A wrap-up of the Giants' draft. Best move: The Giants addressed an immediate and long-term need with the selection of Colorado State center Weston Richburg with the 11th pick of the second round. Most surprising move: It was surprising that Boston College running back Andre Williams was still available for the Giants in the fourth round, but it's not surprising they took him.

No, the Giants did not draft a tight end. The Giants will keep tinkering to make sure they get tight end right, as they will continue to do with every position on their roster. But they're not about to do anything drastic here. They just don't think it's as big a problem as a lot of people outside their building seem to think it is.
The door is clearly open for the Giants' current tight ends, especially third-year player Adrien Robinson, who was a fourth-round pick in 2012. Larry Donnell, Kellen Davis and Daniel Fells are the only other tight ends currently under contract. It doesn't mean the Giants still won't bring in another body.

What, pray tell, would happen if the league forced "Hard Knocks'' down the throats of the Giants? Tom Coughlin said HBO would not be happy with the results. "You wouldn't get what you normally associate with that show," Coughlin said. "I'd go the other way and they'd fire us in a minute. Canceled. Nobody would watch it."

May 10 - UPDATE In the sixth round of the NFL Draft, the Giants added CB Bennett Jackson from Notre Dame. scouting report: Intriguing height and athletic ability. A former WR, he has good hands to intercept.
It's unlikely that any of their Day 3 picks will develop into stars. But it's reasonable to expect that they'll at least be useful, if only on special teams. Jackson is a local kid, a native of Hazlet, NJ and a graduate of Raritan High School.

May 10 - UPDATE The Giants added LB Devon Kennard to their improved defense in the fifth round. scouting report: Well-proportioned, muscular build. Generally plays on his feet. Can drop into short zones. Good tackler.
Everyone being taken Saturday is a developmental player, and the Giants are looking for guys whose makeup leads them to believe they can develop relatively quickly.

May 10 - UPDATE The Giants were expected to take a safety on Day 3 of the NFL Draft. They did, in the fifth round (pick No. 174), when they selected San Diego State safety Nat Berhe.
Giants pick Nat Berhe in 5th. Another senior. Another team captain. Another strong statistical performer, with 94 tackles as a junior and 99 as a senior.

May 10 - UPDATE The Giants drafted RB Andre Williams in fourth round. scouting report: Has very long arms with good overall musculature, wide shoulders and a thick, power base.
The Giants crave depth at running back and love guys who (a) perform at a high level statistically in college and (b) went to Boston College.

May 10 The Giants, even after the biggest free-agent spree any team went on this offseason, entered this draft with so many needs that they can't afford to draft guys who aren't going to perform right away.
The Giants were ecstatic to have drafted not only three talented players, but players who also have displayed the kind of leadership qualities coaches can depend on.

The Giants had Beckham among their Top 7 players in the entire draft. They had Richburg as the top center. They had Bromley much higher than everyone else seemed to expect.
Picking Bromley in the third round surprised many, including Bromley himself. The defensive tackle, who expected to be a third-day pick, wasn't even watching the draft.

Best available players on the board for Day 3. The first two days of the 2014 NFL Draft are in the books. Let the search for hidden gems commence.

May 9 - UPDATE The Giants have selected former Syracuse defensive tackle Jay Bromley with their third-round selection. The 6-3, 306-pounder from Queens has 33 career starts with the Orange and led his team in sacks (10.0) and tackles for loss (14.5) as a senior. The Giants were in search of some offensive line help following the departure of Linval Joseph to Minnesota.

Don't let anyone tell you the Giants do not draft for need. After blending need and value with the first-round selection, receiver Odell Beckham, Jr., the Giants Friday night went directly for need taking Colorado State center Weston Richburg.
The Giants need a steady center in the new offensive era under Ben McAdoo. A year ago, that was an issue, as veteran David Baas and backup Jim Cordle both suffered early season-ending injuries. A decimated offense never recovered.
It's good that they took an offensive lineman. It would have been irresponsible and negligent for them not to do so. They should have taken one in the first round and chose not to, and with Richburg, they get a center with whom they spent a great deal of time prior to the draft and whom they likely think can start for them early in his career, possibly right away.

May 9 It was clear after the Giants picked Odell Beckham Jr. with the No. 12 pick in the draft Thursday night, that they had fallen in love. They loved their interview with him at the combine. They loved his speed. They loved that he can return kicks and punts.

Best available players on the board for Day 2. Take a deep breath and get ready for more NFL Draft action. Rounds 2 and 3 unfold on Friday night and there are plenty of quality players remaining. Who are the best still out there?

Personalizing jerseys of top NFL picks Is a race against the clock. Two years ago, Leo Kane and Nike, which had just become the official apparel provider for the league, decided to personalize the jerseys so that Eric Fisher, E J Manuel and other top picks could admire their last names on them. "We realized it should be a much more special moment," Kane said.

May 8 - UPDATE Giants general manager Jerry Reese could hardly contain himself as he met the media tonight. He feels the Giants got a triple threat in the person of their first-round pick, LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham.
The Giants had him in the top 10 on their draft board Thursday afternoon and by the time they made their selection he was the top player remaining. Reese said. "We definitely think we've gotten a playmaker for our offense tonight."
With the 12th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Giants selected wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. out of LSU. Five things you need to know about the newest member of Big Blue.
