EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants have signed four of their seven draft picks.

Defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins (second round), defensive end Damontre Moore (third round), safety Cooper Taylor (fifth round) and running back Michael Cox (seventh round) all signed their rookie deals Friday.

First-round pick offensive lineman Justin Pugh, fourth-round pick quarterback Ryan Nassib and seventh-round pick guard Eric Herman haven't signed as of this afternoon.

The Giants also announced the signings of their six undrafted rookie free agents.

Curry watches: Aaron Curry's visit continued through Friday morning as the linebacker watched the Giants go through the first day of rookie camp.

The free agent linebacker came in for a visit/individual workout Thursday, and head coach Tom Coughlin said the team had him back in Friday morning.

"He’s in for a tryout, see it where it goes," Coughlin said. "There’s interest."

The Giants are searching for veteran bodies who can help on the cheap, and Curry has not played since being waived by the Raiders last November. The fourth overall pick in the 2009 draft was limited to two games with the Raiders last season due to knee issues and has played in a total of 18 games over the past three seasons for the Raiders and Seahawks.

Nass appeal: Coughlin said Nassib made a good first impression in his first Giants practice.

At times, the former Syracuse quarterback threw a good-looking ball, completing one nice pass over the middle to tight end Morgan Newton, who made an impressive reaching catch. But Nassib also overthrew a pass that resulted in an interception.

"He did well," Coughlin said. "He was poised. Picked it up well; you don’t really have any meeting time -- sometimes you just have trouble just getting the cadence, but he did well. As time went on, he got more comfortable and got better with it. Guys started to respond and we had some good huddle breaks. He did well."
