McAdoo: We always draft best player available

The Giants head coach told reporters that Big Blue won't deviate from the draft plan.

It’s NFL Draft Day for the New York Giants and with the Tom Coughlin era officially over, head coach Ben McAdoo has little less time to get the team back on the right track. With 35-year-old franchise signal-caller Eli Manning on the back-nine of his career, the front office is piecing together the puzzle to build a championship contending team around him.  McAdoo did not offer much insight as to  what the team will do on Thursday night with their No. 10 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

            “That’s a good question. That’s a good question,” McAdoo said to team reporters. “We will get there when we get there. I am not spending a bunch of time on that right now. We have a lot of work to do today, think about it a little bit tonight and then put it to bed tonight when I lay my head on the pillow and get ready for tomorrow when tomorrow comes.”

One thing we learned about McAdoo is that he is not a true philosopher and does not like to spend a lot of time to talk about his approach to the draft.  The Giants will be completing a final day of their voluntary workouts on Thursday and then later to turn their attention to the draft. This upcoming team is stoked for new players.

"Everybody's on the same page," admitted McAdoo. .We always draft the best player available. This is a good opportunity to get these guys out here on the grass and take a look at a lot of new faces. A lot of these defensive guys and special teams guys have had an opportunity to be around me for the last couple days and increase their exposure as we move forward, but we are always evaluating players and they are always evaluating coaches, which works both ways, and when it comes time for the draft, you just pick the best guy, the highest guy on the board, and then you go from there.” 

What player might be on that draft list you ask? Guess we will have to tune for the results of the Giants 2016 rookie class.
