The New York Giants have six picks in the upcoming NFL draft this year, including the 11th overall selection. Their scouts have been selectively scoring the country in hopes of finding some gems in the many pro days being held at college campuses across the nation.
This past week, the Giants had representatives in attendance at many of the big-time programs’ workouts including Michigan and Penn State, where they got an up close look at over a dozen potential draftees including linebacker Micah Parsons and edge rusher Kwity Paye, who are both worthy of first round selections.
The Giants also visited USC, Virginia Tech and BYU among others.
BYU showcased their star quarterback, Zach Wilson, who wowed onlookers with a pro day that could have the Jacksonville Jaguars rethinking their choice at No. 1 overall. The Giants are not in the Zach Wilson business but could be interested in offensive tackle Brady Christensen and defensive tackle Khyris Tonga who both had strong showings.
USC has quite a number of players the Giants could be interested in as well. Three of their players put up solid numbers this week: Offensive lineman Alijah Vera-Tucker, defensive linemen Jay Tufele and wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown. Big Blue take note.
At Virginia Tech, offensive tackle Christian Darrisaw, safety Divine Deablo and running back Khalil Herbert all impressed scouts while cornerback Caleb Farley, considered by many to be a top 15 pick, sat out with a back injury.
