Giants have the final pick in the opening round



EAST RUTHERFORD,N.J. (AP) — Jerry Reese and the New York Giants are used to waiting in the first round of the NFL Draft.

It’s the price of success, and the Giants and their general manager are willing to deal with it, especially with two Super Bowl titles in hand over the past five seasons.

The only difference this time might be when the Giants make their pick. The draft doesn’t kick off until 8 p.m. on Thursday, so the Giants might have to wait until the wee hours to make the 32nd and final choice of the opening round.

But it’ll be worth sticking around for. After all, the champions have obvious needs at receiver, tight end and running back.
