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.

Highlights: Paul Perkins

The Giants added the former UCLA running back early in Round 5. Check out some of Perkins' best highlights.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

With the 149th pick, the Giants select UCLA running back Paul Perkins, known as a quick-cutting runner who can catch the ball. Not a bell-cow type, but can fill a role as part of a RB committee, which you know the Giants like.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants are on the clock now in the fifth round. With only two picks left, I would be surprised if they weren't looking at offensive linemen or running backs. But I haven't had too many hits in this one.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer

Giants on the clock now in the fourth round. Still thinking they need to look at linemen, be they offensive or defensive, after going CB/WR/S in the first three rounds.

Thumbs up or down: Sterling Shepard

After going defense on Day 1, the Giants added a weapon for Eli Manning early in Round 2. Was Shepard the right choice? Dan Graziano answers
