2 positions Giants should address on third day of draft

Saquon Barkley is beloved in his hometown

Interior linemen were popular early on, as four went within the first seven picks of the second round.

Another stellar option is Boston College's Harold Landry, who has the capabilities to develop into an elite pass-rusher.

He's the highest UTEP Miner drafted since 2006 when the late Thomas Howard was selected sixth in the second round by the Raiders.

Four rounds remain Saturday.

General manager Dave Gettleman said Friday that the Giants had a "solid first-round" grade on Will Hernandez, and the UTEP guard chosen with the No. 34 overall pick in the second round was sacked up about having the chance to block for first-round running back Saquon Barkley. "That's something that the Mara family, the city of NY, and the Giants are going to embrace". His availability could be too enticing for the Giants to pass up, especially after trading Jason Pierre-Paul to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Kansas City Chiefs, Minnesota Vikings and San Francisco 49ers.

When Saquon Barkley was drafted, most New York Giants fans were happy that their team got their running back of the future.

In one way, the rookie wage scale makes ideal sense.

Credit where credit is due, Mulvaney's startling admission is an example of honesty that is all too rare in Washington. Well, how utterly noble of him to talk to the people he represented without asking them to pay up first.

The Giants considered Hernandez a first-round choice, general manager Dave Gettleman said.

Shurmur told CMB that they are "always looking to upgrade at all positions", when he was asked if there were any specific areas the Giants were targeting for the remainder of the draft.

The second best-selling jersey was Baker Mayfield, and the third best selling one was Sam Darnold of the New York Jets. We can't wait to see Barkley shine bright in the big apple. But the question is what the Giants do at quarterback when Manning is done.

The question is: What will this trend lead to come the 2018 National Football League season and beyond?

South Carolina State linebacker Darius Leonard rounded out the Colts' top five, and he should help a defense that allowed 25.3 points per game past year, which ranked third-worst in the NFL. That means they need interior linemen to help set up the edge to get to the quarterback.

The other standout draft may well be the Cincinnati Bengals' efforts. Snee went on to become one of the best offensive linemen in franchise history.

In other words, Barkley will likely have a chance to shine right away.
