Giants hosting McClain and Bowman today
By Dan Graziano
The New York Giants do a nice job of keeping a lid on their draft plans, but Star-Ledger beat man Mike Garafolo secured the names of some prospects who dropped by the club's facility Monday. Penn State linebacker Navorro Bowman, LSU safety Chad Jones, Alabama linebacker Rolando McClain and Indiana (Pa.) safety/KR Akwasi Owusu-Ansah all stopped by, according to Garafolo.
Owusu-Ansah's name is being mentioned a ton in this draft and it wouldn't surprise me if general manager Jerry Reese was interested. The Giants aren't afraid to go after small-program players, as evidenced by their pursuit of Ramses Barden in last year's draft.
I'm hoping to have a complete list of all the pre-draft visits for the NFC East teams soon.
