Davis Webb will begin his NFL career knowing he won't be competing for a starting role anytime soon.

But the Giants' third-round pick out of California is ready to embrace the role as Manning's understudy.

" I am just glad that I ended up at such a great organization and so many great players on the Giants team and obviously great coaches," Webb said Friday. "I am just looking forward to being a great teammate and being a prepared quarterback.

Former Giants center Shaun O'Hara was critical of the team's decision to draft California quarterback Davis Webb in the third round instead of selecting an offensive lineman to protect Eli Manning.

"You're going to draft a quarterback that's not going to play for at least 3-4 years? Eli hasn't missed a game in his entire career - not one game," O'Hara said on the NFL Network. "They still have some holes on the offensive line."

On Saturday, the Giants took Pitt offensive tackle Adam Bisnowaty in the sixth round with what proved to be their final pick in the draft. New York moved up seven spots in the sixth round in a deal with Tennessee that also sent the Giants' seventh-round pick to Tennessee.

Drafting good players in the first round is easy. Doing it in other rounds is hard. And the general managers who run the most successful NFL franchises know they really earn their money in Round 2 and beyond. That's where they not only fill out their roster, but can find hidden gems that everyone else overlooked. Those may be hard to find late in the draft -- and even after the draft -- but when one is uncovered, the player is truly a scout's delight.

With that in mind, here are my choices for some of the top draft steals in Giants history …

Drafting a successor to Eli Manning was never really in play for the Giants on Thursday night. There were quarterbacks they liked as an option in the first round -- particularly Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes -- but they were long gone by the time they picked at 23. So they never really had a chance to find their Quarterback of the Future.

Of course, that was only Day 1.

TE Evan Engram, who the Giants selected with the 23rd overall pick during the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday night, says the team has been missing a piece like him.

"I know I'm ready to come in and make an immediate impact," Engram said in a press release issued by the Giants. "I know for a fact. I've been watching the Giants, they're on TV all the time. I sit down and watch them, especially this past year. I've been really analyzing teams and certain offenses. The Giants have been missing a piece like me."

"I know my skillset," Engram continued. I'm confident in my game and how hard I work. Just the weapons around me, I can't wait to come in and contribute. Learn from all those guys and take advantage of the opportunity to be a great player for this team."

Engram, 22, had 65 catches for 926 yards and eight touchdowns in 11 games last season during his senior year at Ole Miss...

The Giants have never been very good at hiding their intentions when it comes to the first round of the NFL draft. Usually by the time Draft Day rolls around, either their pick is pretty clear, or it's been narrowed down to a small handful of names.

That is most definitely not the case this year for a very good reason: In the days leading up to the draft, even the Giants didn't seem sure of what they were going to do.

Don't mistake that for confusion, though. It's more a reflection of their options. They don't have many areas of obvious need as they have in year's past. Also, they're picking lower than they've picked since 2012 and that always increases the variables. There's even more variety this year because a lot of scouts think the difference between the 10th and 30th player on most boards is pretty minimal. So with the Giants sitting at pick No. 23, they can't really be sure how the first 22 will go...

The lawyers of Giants quarterback Eli Manning have provided emails between the quarterback and the team's equipment manager, Joe Skiba, that suggest there was no plan to fabricate game-used memorabilia, according to Darren Rovell and Jordan Raanan of ESPN.

"Did you put my helmet somewhere?" Manning wrote in a 2012 email sent from his phone to Skiba shortly after Super Bowl XLVI. "It was not in my locker. If you could hold on to it and my spare one as well, that would be great."

One of the plaintiffs in the fraud lawsuit against Manning purchased what was said to be Manning's backup helmet from SUper Bowl XLVI in 2012 from Steiner Sports. The other two plaintiffs in the lawsuit bought a helmet on the secondary market that they were told were worn during a game in the 2007-2008 season.

SNY NFL Draft Insider Tony Pauline joins Ralph Vacchiano to discuss whether the Jets should trade down and who the Giants are targeting.

Ralph Vacchiano Facebook | Twitter | Archive

Many people around the NFL consider this to be one of the hardest first rounds to project in years. That's at least partly due to the uncertainty about where the quarterbacks will go, but also because of deep top tier of talent (perhaps 10 or 11 picks deep) and because many scouts don't see much of a difference between players ranked in the 10-15 range and those they rank down near 25-32.

After consulting with many NFL sources and experts (and my own imagination), here is my final answer on the first round: My SNY Mock Draft 3.0. I feel pretty good that the Cleveland Browns will indeed make the first overall selection. Other than that … no guarantees and I reserve the right to change my mind:

One last look at the top players on the board for the Giants as they prepare to make the 23rd overall pick on April 27:

1. OT Garett Bolles, Utah - The Giants know they need help at tackle, but they don't plan to reach for one if the value isn't there. This 6-5, 297-pounder might be the best fit, though. He's 25, but that doesn't seem to bother the Giants. More concerning is his lack of experience (only one year in FBS). The Giants have seemed to like him best among the top offensive linemen throughout this process. He might not get past the Denver Broncos at 20. Whether the Giants take him or not may depend on who else is there and how much "need" really matters to them this year.  (Last report: 2)

2. LB Jarrad Davis, Florida - He might actually be No. 1 on the Giants' wish list, but his stock is seemingly rising to the point where the Giants might have to move up to get him (something they're not likely to do). He's a 6-1, 238-pound outside linebacker with the skills and intelligence the Giants have been looking for at that spot for several years. Scouts also rave about his character, which makes him even more attractive. It wasn't that long ago that some scouts pegged him as more of a second-round pick, but that doesn't seem likely anymore. (Last report: N/A)

There is mutual interest between the Giants and free agent running back LeGarrette Blount, and a deal could be made before this weekend's NFL Draft, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Blount appeared in 16 games for the Patriots last season and carried the ball 299 times for 1,161 yards, averaging 3.9 yards per carry, and a league-leading 18 rushing touchdowns (the highest rushing touchdown total for any NFL player since Adrian Peterson in 2011).

With New England's recent signings of RB Mike Gillislee and RB Rex Burkheard this offseason, it seems likely that Blount's career with the Patriots is over.

After it was reported that the Giants plan to pick up his fifth-year optionOdell Beckham, Jr. vowed to work harder than he ever has before to be the very best player he can be.

"Just wanna say today I woke up feeling extremely blessed. The start of a new chapter in my life began this [past] week," Beckham wrote on his verified Twitter account. "I will be workin harder than I ever have, to be the best that I ever have been. I'm more motivated now then I have ever been."

Beckham, 24. is entering the final year of his rookie contract, and the fifth-year option for the 2018 season will pay him the average salary of the third-through-25th highest paid wide receivers in the NFL, which is currently estimated to be around $8 million.

During his pre-draft press conference last week, Giants GM Jerry Reese used the phrase "best player available" nine different times. He made it clear, as he does every year, that will be the Giants' philosophy when they make their first-round draft pick.

And this year, he might really mean it.

Normally, "best player available" is a bit of a myth. The Giants, like most teams, almost always make their selections with "need" in mind, especially in the first round. They've done that with almost every first-round pick over the last two decades, to at least some degree. Even Reese admitted "You're always trying to tie 'best player available' with what our needs are."

The problem is that this year, one team source said "We don't have a ton of needs" -- and definitely none that match up well with the players who'll be available when they make the 23rd overall selection. They know they need help on the offensive line, but most scouts believe this is the weakest class of linemen (especially top of the class) in years. They know they need a play-making tight end, but the best one -- maybe even the best two -- might not reach them...

Christian McCaffrey highlights 00:01:10
SNY.tv takes a look at the best plays of former Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey.

The Giants are interested in drafting former Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey, according to the New York Post.

McCaffrey, seen as a versatile option out of the backfield, averaged 6.3 yards per carry in 2016 and scored 13 touchdowns. In 2015, McCaffrey's 3,864 all-purpose yards were the most in a season in NCAA history. He was named the AP College Football Player of the Year that same year.

His father, Ed McCaffrey, was drafted by the Giants in the third round of the 1991 NFL Draft.

The Giants have the 23rd overall pick in the draft, but it is not yet clear whether or not McCaffrey would still be remaining on the draft board that late in the first round. If the Giants are able to draft him, they would reportedly seek to utilize his versatility by weaving him into both offense and special teams, according to the New York Post. They would aim to give him about 20 touches per game through carries, catches, kick returns, and punt returns.

For the moment, Ereck Flowers appears to be the Giants left tackle by default. But Jerry Reese made it clear that is definitely subject to change.

The Giants general manager said the team will "experiment" with their offensive line lineup this spring in search of their still-to-be-determined starting five. At the moment, they have no obvious lineup, but they do have several players with the flexibility to play multiple positions.

Weston Richburg was one of the bright spots on the Giants' offensive line last season, but that's not the way he saw it. The Giants center wasn't happy with his overall performance, which was due in part to an injury that he never revealed.

Richburg said he tore ligaments in his right hand in the Giants' second preseason game. He played the entire season with the injury, which eventually needed surgery.

Coming off their most successful season since their last Super Bowl championship, the Giants hope to get off to a fast start this season. But the schedule-makers didn't make that easy to do.  

The Giants will not only open the season on the road - and in Dallas for the third straight opener - but they'll be on the road for most of the first month of the 2017 season. Three of their first four games and four of their first six are away games. And to add to the challenge, three of those are in prime time.

An angry and hurt Eli Manning defended himself against allegations that he participated in a phony memorabilia scheme, insisting "I've done nothing wrong, and I have nothing to hide."

Speaking out on the subject for the first time -- and letting his emotions show for one of the few times in his 13-year NFL career -- Manning opened up his press conference on Thursday morning by proclaiming his innocence. He said that emails that purportedly show him participating in the scheme -- filed in Bergen County Superior Court as part of a civil racketeering suit against him, the Giants and their equipment managers -- were "taken out of context."

The world of mock drafters still believes the Giants will select an offensive lineman in the first round later this month, but it's not quite as convinced as it once was.

As of Monday, 53 percent of the 32 mock drafts examined by SNY have the Giants taking an offensive lineman in the first round, which begins in just 10 days. That's down from 60 percent just two weeks ago. The favorite player, though, remains the same. The consensus is that they'll take Wisconsin tackle Ryan Ramczyk, who was selected in 12 of the 32 mock drafts.
