Spievey Visits Giants; McClain Says He Doesn’t Have Crohn’s

Two bits of draft news for ya’ll: Iowa CB Amari Spievey has visited the Giants for a pre-draft workout. Spievey is a tough, quick corner who excels with his range. Can cover a lot of ground. Can also play safety, if needed. Spievey is a third or fourth round candidate. I know Jesse Bartolis is […]

McClain Has 4-3 Roots

Rolando McClain is, as we all know, the top middle linebacker in this year’s draft class. And, as you all know, he is my target for the Giants to pick at 15. The only problem is that McClain played in a 3-4 defense at Alabama. And the biggest question has been: Can he make the […]

Prospect Profiles-ILB Rolando McClain

However, it is not out of the realm of probability that the Giants could draft Rolando McClain, either 15th overall […]
