Giants attend Penn State, Memphis pro days

Penn State held their pro day on Thursday. As usual, the college football powerhouse drew interest from most NFL teams. New York Giants defensive back coach Jerome Henderson was in attendance.

Jaquan Brisker was certainly at the top the list of attractions. He is one of the highest-rated safeties in this draft class and the Giants are looking for a new partner for Xavier McKinney and Julian Love after releasing veteran Logan Ryan and shying away from re-signing the injured Jabrill Peppers.

Mike Kaye of Pro Football Network wrote this about Brisker’s performance on Thursday:

Brisker is listed at 6-foot-1 and 206 pounds, looked fast and fluid in front of two NFC East coordinators (Dallas’ Dan Quinn and Jonathan Gannon of Philadelphia) on Thursday.

As Quinn and Gannon watched drills, Brisker showed off his unique blend of size, speed, and ball skills. He caught everything thrown his way and showed smooth change-of-direction ability in position drills.

Brisker said teams have asked him about playing all six defensive back positions, and his fluidity at the pro day should give those teams reason to believe he can.

PFN has Brisker ranked 56th overall on their board and project him to be a second round pick. The Giants have the 36th overall selection in the draft.

Other players who impressed were wide receiver Jahan Dotson and linebacker Brandon Smith. Cornerback Tariq Castro-Fields could also be on the Giants’ radar, as could offensive tackle Rasheed Walker, who once again did not work out.

Other players of interest were linebacker Jesse Luketa and edge rusher Arnold Ebiketie. The Giants aren’t likely to use any of their first round picks on the players Henderson scouted today, but Day 2 is a different story.

Meanwhile, in addition to Penn State, the Giants also had scouts at the Memphis pro day, where they rubbed elbows with Joe Judge.
