Report says OC Mike Sullivan watched his Pro Day
Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are a few Giants-related headlines to start your day.
Add DeShone Kizer to QB list
The Giants might select a quarterback in the 2017 NFL Draft. They might not. The only thing that appears certain is that they are doing their due diligence in checking out the 2017 quarterback class. NJ Advance Media reports that offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan was at the recent Notre Dame Pro Day to see DeShone Kizer first hand.
GM Jerry Reese reportedly attended the North Carolina Pro Day to watch Mitchell Trubisky [prospect profile] and NJ Advance Media added that VP of Player Evaluation Marc Ross watched Nathan Peterman, a player Ron Jaworski endorses for the Giants, at the Pitt Pro Day.
Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is considered to be the mentor for Giants coach Ben McAdoo, and the Packers famously selected Aaron Rodgers in the first round despite still having Brett Favre. Here is what McCarthy told NJ Advance Media about that:
"You don't ever pass up a quarterback," McCarthy said. "It's the most important position in the game of football, and I think you need to always try to develop it. If the timing's not right as far as making that transition, than obviously that player has value (see, the Patriots' Jimmy Garappolo). That's healthy value for your football team."
