I guess Tom Coughlin's "Let's be safe and smart" message to his team a the end of minicamp fell on deaf ears -- again. They definitely missed the ears of veteran DE Jason Pierre-Paul, who literally almost blew up his career over the weekend playing with fireworks.

JPP reportedly sustained burns and injuries to his hand while blowing off fireworks in South Florida on the Fourth of July (July 5). This morning, those injuries, which are still undisclosed, turn out to be not as serious as the Twitter alarmists reported on Sunday.

Draft day is finally here and over the next 72 hours we will have the full picture of the Giants' 2015 draft class. I have been getting a lot of comments and emails regarding who the Giants should select in Round 1?and beyond.

My basic response is let's see who they do in Round 1?tonight and then tomorrow and Saturday speculate about those rounds. If I have my way, the Giants hit it big tonight and tomorrow and make Saturday a non-event.

They can stay the course and select some good players, or they can be proactive and creative and get themselves some difference-makers.

The draft is jut one day away and it's time to shed all the pipe dreams and start talking brass tacks. Here is what I see the Giants facing - and doing - in the first round of tomorrow night's NFL Draft.

There are three scenarios that the Giants will have to prepare for Thursday.

One: Stay the course and wait for the best available player to fall to them at No. 9. We won't know who that is until the time comes. But I feel it will be one of five players: Iowa OL Brandon Scherff, Clemson DE Vic Beasley, DE Bud Dupree of Kentucky, Alabama WR Amari Cooper or WR Kevin White of West Virginia.

If there was ever a year for New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese and coach Tom Coughlin to get it right in the NFL draft, this is it.

The Giants have missed the playoffs the past three seasons since winning the Super Bowl in 2012 and jobs are on the line. The past two years have not been good: The team has been out of the postseason picture by roughly Thanksgiving.

Records of 7-9 and 6-10 are not going to cut it with co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch.

The 2015 NFL Draft will have major player absences and rounds with shorter time allowances. It will also?take place in a city other than New York for the first time since 1964.

The 80th annual NFL Draft will be held in Chicago, at the Auditorium Theater of Roosevelt University. Three projected Top-10 selections - Florida State QB Jameis Winston, WR Amari Cooper of Alabama and Oregon QB Marcus Mariota, the Heisman Trophy winner, have chosen not to attend.

Over two dozen other highly-touted prospects will be on hand however (NFL Communications).

Greg Cosell of NFL Films and the NFL Network believes the Giants will be targeting a safety high in the draft this weekend. And it may not be who you think...

"Safety is going to be really important. For the New York Giants in particular," Cosell said on NFLN's Championship Chase: The Draft. "They really can't line up right now with what they have."

"So, there's Damarious Randall from Arizona State, who I think is as good a back-end safety as there is in this draft. And not only does he have back-end skills, but he has the box mentality. He's not a big guy, he's only about 196-198 but he has a box mentality and he can also play over the slot, which is critical in today's NFL."

A week from now we will be assessing the Giants' draft - what is and what could have been - while trying to stay out in front of the UDFA scramble. The favorite for the Giants remains Iowa OL Brandon Scherff, regarded by most experts as the best lineman in the draft and perhaps the safest bet at any position this year.

Some have contended that Scherff does not possess the wingspan to be an effective tackle in the NFL. The Giants don't really care about that, having drafted Justin Pugh in the first round two years ago. Pugh was said to have "short arms" as well. They appear to be comfortable with just adding Scherff to their roster and upgrading the offensive line.

From Rotoworld:

SNYGiants insider Ralph Vacchiano believes the Giants should focus on upgrading the offensive line in this Week's NFL Draft rather than select another weapon at WR in the first round.

It?s not an implausible scenario. In fact, some in the NFL can envision at least one of the top two receivers ? Alabama?s Amari Cooper or West Virginia?s Kevin White ? slipping into the Giants? lap. And if they do, several Giants sources insisted drafting yet another receiver will get strong consideration.

Last year at this time, Giants GM Jerry Reese said he had no particular player in mind as the NFL Draft approached. Reese said the team will take the best available player with the 12th overall pick.

As it turned out, Reese did have a particular player in mind, LSU WR Odell Beckham, Jr., and he just happened to fall to the Giants in the first round. Beckham was the Giants' man all along, we were told afterward.

We are merely one week away from 2015 NFL Draft, and the excitement and the pressure is certainly building up.

The Giants hold the No. 9 overall selection in the first round, as well as picks in the second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth rounds, plus two more in the seventh. Overall, they hold the 9th, 40th, 74th, 108th, 144th, 185th, 226th and 245th picks this year.

With eight picks, the Giants can address both their biggest needs while adding depth, barring any unforeseen trades behind the scenes.

Maxx Williams, largely considered the top tight end prospect in the 2015 NFL Draft, already has ties to the New York Giants.

Williams' father, Brian Williams, was selected No. 18 overall in the 1989 draft by none other than the Giants. After a nine-year career in the blue, Brian Willliams is anxious to see his son follow a similar fate.

?We?re gonna be at home in Minnesota,?? Brian Williams told the Post. ?He wanted to be here with mom and dad and his grandparents and his family. That means a lot.

Two weeks from today we'll be part of the media overkill covering the NFL Draft and breaking down the Giants' first round selection, which many believe will be Iowa OL Brandon Scherff (BBB, Apr 17).

Scherff has all the earmarks of becoming a solid NFL offensive lineman, but he may not be what fans and pundits think he is. Listed on many mock websites as a tackle, Scherff is actually projected by scouts and experts to be a guard in the NFL.

The Giants were hoping that a top OT would emerge from the pack this spring and they could implement their plan to move Justin Pugh, who struggled at RT last season, inside to plug the hole at guard. But that hasn't happened that we know of. They might be fooling themselves if they think Scherff is the guy who can force that change.

If the Giants select an offensive lineman in the first round no Giant fan will be disappointed. Just about everyone who bleeds blue knows the line could use an infusion of new blood. Depending on which players trickle down to them, an offensive lineman just might be the pick.

But, with the NFL Draft just two weeks away, the Giants are still without solid answers at the safety position. Their roster still lists only two players as safeties - Nat Berhe and Cooper Taylor - neither of whom has started an NFL game.

Both players were taken in the fifth round in the NFL Draft. Taylor, a 2013 pick, missed all of 2014 with a foot injury. Berhe, selected last season, served as mainly a special teams player.

With the draft just sixteen days away, the rumors are beginning to heat up. The Giants hold the ninth overall pick and are at the mercy of the acumen of the eight teams in front of them. Here's the latest on how things are breaking within the top nine slots in the draft...

1. Tampa Bay - are still believed to covet Florida State QB Jameis Winston first overall. But last week, ownership began to scrutinize Winston fearing he was a PR problem. ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting the Bucs have moved on to his Heisman successor, Oregon QB Marcus Mariota.

2. Tennessee - are said to be committed to Zach Mettenberger at QB and that is going to create a frenzy over the next two weeks. The Titans will be receiving offers from multiple teams to part ways with the pick regardless of which one of the top two QBs is available.

The 2015 NFL Draft order is beginning to take shape. The Tampa Bay Bucs and the Tennessee Titans are expected to select QBs Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota with the first two selections. The defensive players will take over from there: USC DL Leonard Williams, Florida OLB Dante Fowler, Jr., Nebraska DE Randy Gregory, Missouri DE Shane Ray and Clemson OLB Vic Beasley.

Sprinkle in three WRs - Alabama's Amari Cooper, Kevin White of West Virginia and Louisville's DeVante Parker - and you have have your Top 10. Or do you? Some believe that Michigan State CB Trae Waynes, Washington NT Danny Shelton, Stanford OT Andrus Peat, Iowa OL Brandon Scherff and Georgia RB Todd Gurley could upset things by sneaking into the top ten.

The Giants, selecting ninth overall, will sit and wait their turn and see who falls to them. They should have a bevy of talented players to choose from. DeVante Parker will likely be one of them. Although he's rising up the charts quickly, he's still currently rated behind Cooper and White by most teams and draftniks.

The road to the draft begins early for every NFL team. In fact, some say the quest for young talent never really ends. Giant fans got a taste of how hard the scouting department works in the NFL Network series "Finding Giants" this past year.

It's difficult to keep up with which players teams have met with and who they have genuine interest in. Below is the latest list of players compiled by the website walterfootball.com.

It's been reported the Giants are interested in Nebraska DE Randy Gregory and Benardrick McKinney, a LB from Mississippi State. In recent weeks it was discovered that Gregory tested positive for marijuana and the Giants may be shying away from him at No.9.

Working out for the New York Giants would be nerve-wracking for any NFL hopeful, but imagine if that hopeful also grew up with blue and red in his blood. Ali Marpet did, and he'll get the shot of a lifetime as he shows off for his favorite team at their April 9 workout day (NJ.com, April 6).

The 6-4, 304 pound offensive lineman out of Division III Hobart & William Smith College, grew up in New York. Earlier this year, he told NFL Network if he had to pick one team to draft him, he'd pick the Giants, his favorite team as a kid.

Marpet will have a shot to impress his home team on Thursday at their workout, but he already put out a strong showing at February's NFL Combine, running the fastest 40-yard dash of any OL at 4.98 seconds.

The Super Bowl is rapidly descending upon us and, sadly, the Giants won't be participating. But that doesn't prevent us from having a little fun with trivia from the games the Giants have played in.

We all know that QB Phil Simms had a day to remember in Super Bowl XXI:

  • Highest passer rating, game, 150.92 - Phil Simms - New York Giants vs. Denver, XXI
  • Highest completion percentage, game, (20 attempts), 88% - Phil Simms - N.Y. Giants vs. Denver, XXI (25-22)
In Super Bowl XLVI, QB Eli Manning set a record when he completed his first nine passes to start the game.

Every offseason, teams attempt to address their areas of weakness from the previous season. Sounds pretty simple right?

Well, for the 2014 New York Football Giants, there are so many weaknesses that the team may have to pick and choose which areas to address.

Recently-retired offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride commented on the shuffling of the offensive line this season and how it negatively affected what Eli Manning was able to do.

The season might not have resulted in a playoff bid, but the Jets finished the season with an 8-8 record playing spoiler to the Miami Dolphins playoff chances. ?After the Miami meltdown back in 2011, this win exorcised some franchise demons and created the divergence the fans needed at the ended of the 2011 season.

There's a lot of good things ahead for this team.

While the season is ending one way or another next week for the Jets, the offense seems to finally be evening out over the last three games and the team is playing their hearts out for Rex Ryan.

While winning over the Browns might not change many national opinions, it was still a good win for the Jets.

In the last six games before Sunday?s matchup with the San Diego Chargers, Eli Manning had only thrown three interceptions. Not bad, considering how Manning struggled early on with turnovers.

But Manning and the Giants looked like they did the first half of this season in the 37-14 loss Sunday in San Diego.

Right from the start, Manning looked terrible against the team the drafted him back in 2004. The fans were quick to remind him through a chorus of ?boos? about what they thought of his decision to spurn the city and go play in New York.

The Giants? offense played well enough in even-numbered quarters to earn a 24-17 win Sunday night over the Redskins.

Two touchdowns in the second quarter and a touchdown and field goal in the fourth quarter made up for two inept looking quarters: the first and third.

Big Blue went three and out on both of its first quarter drives, while the third quarter featured two punts and Eli Manning?s 18th interception of the season.

?We won?t have too much trouble scoring touchdowns against one of the worst defenses in the league,? the Giants? offense must have thought to itself, heading into Sunday?s contest.

Unfortunately that wasn?t the case, as settling for field goals on two early trips into the red zone ultimately sealed Big Blue?s fate in a 24-21 loss to the Cowboys.

Sure, the weather was a factor in this one, but Tony Romo didn?t look like he had too much trouble throwing the ball on that final drive. It?s no excuse.

This weekend is the Giants? Super Bowl, and offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride met the media Thursday to discuss this all important matchup.

Big Blue?s offense has shown some decent signs of life the past few weeks, but the unit still has not hit its stride.

In the Week 1 loss to the Cowboys, Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and Rueben Randle all racked up 100-plus yards receiving, so Eli Manning is hoping he can spread the ball around on the Cowboys? depleted secondary.

In Week 12, the Giants (4-6) host the Dallas Cowboys (5-5) in a game that has huge implications for both squads.

Was it perfect? No.

But the Giants found a way to win their fourth straight game in a 27-13 contest over the Packers, and unlike some of the recent wins, there were at least a good chunk of positives to take away from Big Blue?s offensive performance.

Victor Cruz was again at the top of his game, catching eight passes for 110 yards. Everyone else was efficient enough in helping the Giants get the win.

After a week off, the Jets have gotten back to practice and Santonio Holmes looks as if he is ready to return to the field full time. Holmes has missed the past five games due to a hamstring injury after easing back into the lineup this year from his season-ending Lisfranc injury suffered just four games into the 2012 season.

On Monday, Holmes participated in the entire 30 minutes of practice open reporters, a good indication that he could see playing time this weekend in Buffalo. Holmes worked with the team was the first such since his injury against the Titans.

So far, Holmes has 10 receptions on 24 targets for 243 yards and one score. More than half those stats came against the Bills in Week 3 when Holmes had a career day. When healthy, Holmes production has been mercurial this season but his talent combined with Geno's progress could be a boost for the Jets during the second half of the season.

Got a?Case of the Mondays? Fear not! Columnist and TheJetsBlog Podcast co-host?Corey Griffin?has you covered every?Monday?morning with thoughts, ideas and opinions about all things Jets.Evaluating the AFC playoff picture through only 10 weeks is akin to watching an 87-year-old put together a puzzle without his glasses. It looks a little jumbled, there?s definitely some pieces missing and it?ll probably be a while before the picture looks coherent.

For all their dominance, the Broncos are buoyed by a 38-year-old quarterback with failing legs. Their chief rival for the No. 1 seed, undefeated Kansas City, is not nearly as imposing as their record, despite a No. 1 scoring defense and Jamaal Charles? MVP campaign. The Patriots, when healthy, look like the AFC?s best team, but they won?t be 100 percent any time this season. Meanwhile, the Colts were just worked in their own building by a Brian Schottenheimer and Kellen Clemens-led offense and the Bengals continue to ebb and flow on Andy Dalton?s schizophrenic arm (and head).

The Giants will have a logjam in the backfield Sunday when the team hosts the Oakland Raiders, but that could wind up being a good thing.

Andre Brown is set to make his return coming off a broken left leg, and the timing is great, since David Wilson has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said that Brown might not be physically capable of shouldering the entire load at this point, but even so, he?s expecting Brown to contribute in any way possible, especially as a pass blocker.

Usually a unit that is ranked 29th in the NFL doesn?t have too much excitement surrounding it.

However, the Giants? running game, averaging just 69.9 yards per game, all of a sudden looks like a multifaceted entity that could actually be a weapon for this team.

Again, the eventual grade will be based on production up until this point, not the future. But it?s important for us to look at what this unit may look like in the second half.

The one unit where the entire analysis centers on just one guy is quarterback.

By his standards, Eli Manning would tell you that he has had a sub-par season. Right from his very first pass of the year that was intercepted by DeMarcus Ware, it?s been a very rough first half for the two-time Super Bowl MVP.

He?s currently leading the NFL with 15 interceptions ? not exactly the stat you want to lead. But granted, some of those were the result of receivers running bad routes, and some were literally just bad luck.

But let?s be brutally honest: It was anything but pretty.

The Giants missed plenty of opportunities on offense in their 23-7 win Monday night over the Minnesota Vikings. This really could have been a 44-7 game, but again, for the struggling Giants, a win?s a win.
