Duggan Why is Giants' Johnathan Hankins still a free agent? New report may be a hint ...
"Back to Hankins. It's incredibly difficult to see how he, or anyone in his camp, can actually believe any one of 31 (of 32) teams would decide to hand him a multi-year deal worth $8 million annually a week into free agency. If a team was willing to make that type of investment in Hankins, it would have been made days ago. No general manager is going to wake up Thursday and suddenly feel compelled to spend big bucks on Hankins."

Edholm Yahoo Sports: Post-free agency NFL mock draft: Deshaun Watson lands in very interesting situation
"23. New York Giants — Wisconsin OT Ryan Ramczyk
Another first-round offensive lineman? They need it. The interior feels set with center Weston Richburg and left guard Justin Pugh likely starting and free agent D.J. Fluker a strong candidate at the other guard spot. But tackle remains questionable, and the Giants are aiming to create competition at both spots. Ereck Flowers isn’t locked in at left tackle — Giants coach Ben McAdoo at the combine: “where [Flowers] ends up is where he ends up” — and Bobby Hart isn’t starter-grade.
Ramczyk is coming off hip surgery that could sideline him until training camp but can play either tackle spot and is nearly as adept, it appears, run blocking or pass blocking. Giants OL coach had Joe Staley in San Francisco, and Ramczyk has a lot of Staley in his game. Last year was all about the Giants upgrading the defense. Now it’s time to continue helping Eli Manning, as he comes down the backstretch of his career."
