The Giants want to get a closer look at their prospect options with the No. 2 overall pick, which is why private workouts will be held at the team's facility next week.
Among those workouts will be Penn State RB Saquon Barkley, who is set to arrive here on Sunday night, per SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.
Barkley is widely viewed as the top running back prospects, and arguably the best overall player in this year's draft class. And Giants GM Dave Gettleman loves what he sees on tape.
""It's unusual," Gettleman said at the NFL Owners Meetings. "I'm telling you, he can string together moves and get in and out of stuff. It's funny, I (watched film of) him right before I came down. He's unique, no doubt about it. He's big, he's powerful, he can step on the gas, he's got different levels of speed. And he catches the heck out of the ball and he sees the blitz pickup stuff.
"So, you know, he's unique."
Head coach Pat Shurmur, who has stressed how important a running back is for his offense, reiterated how impressive Barkley is on and off the field.
"He's equally impressive, like the quarterbacks," Shurmur said. "When you watch his tape there isn't anything he can't do. He's really a pretty good pass protector. That's an important piece. And he can catch the football as well.
"He can do everything you're looking for in a running back, and he's a terrific human being as well."
The Giants have a very good shot of seeing Barkley on the draft board when they are on the clock. However, the Browns have been linked to the 6-foot, 234-pound running back as well. Some could see the Browns drafting Barkley just to secure him, and then select a quarterback with their No. 4 selection.
But, if the Browns select a quarterback, the Giants will have a difficult choice in adding another lethal weapon to their offense, or choosing to look toward the future with a quarterback.
The Giants could also opt for another position with their pick. Notre Dame G Quenton Nelson and N.C. State DE Bradley Chubb are both expected to visit the Giants at some point, though their visit dates are unknown.
