As the Giants search for the heir apparent to Eli Manning, they decided to bring in somebody who is quite familiar with their star running back, Saquon Barkley.
Penn State's Trace McSorley visited with the Giants on Friday, according to Matt Lombardo of NJ.com.
McSorley was among several players in attendance for the team's "local" pro day, which consists of an unlimited number of incoming players with geographic tie to the team's home market.
While the Giants have shown interest in Dwayne Haskins, Drew Lock and Daniel Jones in this year's draft class, they could always take a flier on McSorley in the late rounds or as an undrafted free agent.
He certainly has the high praise of his former teammate and the Giants' best offensive weapon.
"He's just gritty. He's a gritty player," Barkley told the Big Ten Network last fall. "He works so hard. No matter how many people doubt him, or whatever, he's going to push himself and push his teammates. He's a great leader. A great player. One of my favorite teammates ever."
