Take Two: Which Big 12 draft pick found best fit?

In this week's Big 12 Take Two, we're taking a closer look at two Big 12 players who ended up in great fits as draft picks with their new NFL teams.

Even after drafting Eli Apple in the first round, the Giants still could use depth at cornerback. And former Bengal Leon Hall, a veteran who can play the nickel position, could offer them that. Fox reports that Hall is visiting the Giants on Tuesday. My understand is that Hall has visited several teams this offseason, and that the big concerns about him are on the medical end of it – particularly a back injury that gave him trouble late last year. If he checks out physically and the Giants' doctors clear him, he makes sense as a signing for them. But don't be surprised if it takes a while.

Jets star Darrelle Revis, who has been described as an artist at cornerback, will be featured with Giants CB Janoris Jenkins in an art exhibit entitled, "The Corners of New York." It will start Tuesday at Pier 94 in NYC. Each player had his portrait painted in advance of the art fair, which supports the Perry J. Cohen Foundation. Cohen was a 14-year-old who went missing at sea last July off the coast of Florida. Revis and Jenkins will be present on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.

Giants' best pick: B.J. Goodson

Needing linebackers, New York snagged a good one in the fourth round. Although he had some durability issues in college, the Clemson inside linebacker always seemed to be around the football. Todd McShay (Insider)

Bio Blast: Jerell Adams

Few expected the South Carolina tight end to slide all the way to Round 6, but the Giants snapped him up at No. 184 overall. Adams led all tight ends with a 4.64 40-yard dash at the combine.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo says fifth-round RB Paul Perkins is a complete back. "The two most important things for a running back: No. 1, protect the call. No. 2, protect the quarterback. And he certainly fits that role."

Jerry Reese says Jerell Adams is a "better blocker than a receiver" at this time.
