The 2013 NFL Draft is less than a week away, which means that
John Mara, Steve Tisch, Jerry Reese and company need to figure out how
to build around their current roster for the upcoming 2013 season.
After barely missing the previous postseason, the Giants have decided to go in a different direction. Longtime players such as Ahmad Bradshaw, Osi Umenyiora, Chris Canty and Martellus Bennett are no longer on the team and the Giants will now to select a group of draftees that will fill at least some of those spots.
Giants will have all of their regular 2013 NFL draft picks, which
includes the nineteenth overall selection, plus a compensatory pick
after the seventh round. It will be fascinating to see how the draft
will unfold for the Giants in a matter of days.

According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, the New York Giants are “inclined” to draft best available offensive tackle or defensive end in the first round of this week’s draft.The Giants always take the best player available and I could even see them drafting a player like Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner if he somehow falls to 19.

NFL News: The New York Giants have re-signed, 2012 waiver wire wonder Andre Brown, to a one-year deal worth just over 2 million dollars.
Fantasy Ramifications: At the very least, Brown will serve as the short-yardage and goal line back for the G-Men to start the year. And he should be a hand-cuff candidate in most leagues if you decide Wilson is your guy. In touchdown only leagues...
