Giants Interested in Covington?

From Pro Football Talk:


Remember this name:  Maurice Covington.

The Giants already know that that’s the name of a former Virginia receiver who was snubbed by the folks who run the Scouting Combine.

They’re bringing him to town for a visit.

On Thursday, Covington turned in a 40-inch vertical leap at the Virginia Pro Day workout, better than the best vertical leaps posted by the big-name receiver prospects at the  Combine.

Covington, who stands 6?4? and weighs more than 220 pounds, didn’t generate big numbers at Virginia.  But there’s a growing sense that his best days could be in front of him.

Especially if he can lift his 76-inch frame 40 inches off the ground on a consistent basis.
