Leonard NYDN: How Browns’ trade for Tyrod Taylor will affect Giants on draft night

Dunleavy Browns trade flurry robbed Giants of chance at Saquon Barkley? Not so fast...

Dunleavy Ranking Giants' 15 most important in-house free agents, including Justin Pugh, Orleans Darkwa, Geno Smith

Pauline Draft Analyst: Pro Day March 9: Auburn, Rutgers & Princeton
“Safety Stephen Roberts, who was struggling with a stiff shoulder, also slightly improved on his combine time of 4.53 with some scouts clocking him at 4.48. Despite the shoulder, Roberts looked good in position drills.

The New York Giants spent one-on-one time with Roberts, as did the Tennessee Titans.

Offesive lineman Braden Smith stood on most of his combine numbers but looked terrific in position drills. Smith was re-measured today, and ironically his arm grew three-quarters of an inch in a week's time. At the combine, his arm measured 32-1/4 inches but today at pro day it was 33 inches, which means the teams that like him can breathe a sigh of relief.

Most teams view Smith predominantly at guard but understand he has possibilities at right tackle.

The Giants, who had executive scout Steve Verderosa (good guy) on hand at Auburn's pro day, evidently like Smith. During a webcast I did with John Schmeelk and Paul Dottino of the New York Giants during the combine, I mentioned Smith as a potential third-round target for Big Blue.”


Twelve teams were able to make it to the Princeton workout to watch quarterback Chad Kanoff. More were expected, but the nor’easter up the east coast made travel impossible for number of people.

Kanoff did not disappoint those on hand.

The big-armed passer measured in at 6-foot-4 and 219 pounds, timed 4.90 in the 40 and posted a vertical jump of 32.5 inches. His hands measured 10-1/4 inches, a big number for a quarterback. Kanoff threw 55 passes; all had excellent velocity, and all were on the money.

The Giants, Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts have all shown a lot of interest in Kanoff and were in attendance today. The Cardinals intended to have multiple people on hand, but the weather prevented some from attending.”
