Giant Smokescreen?

Giants GM Ernie Accorsi made one thing clear on Wednesday – that he and his coaching staff feel comfortable with their current offensive line. That said you might as well expect New York to select an offensive lineman in round one.

With the recent rash of TE and WR draft talk the Giants' obvious needs on the OL have mostly been overlooked. They say they're happy with what they have. We say they may be looking closely at a couple O-linemen and are using their content status as a smokescreen.

Or they may really be looking elsewhere.

Accorsi, understandably, wouldn't reveal in which direction the Giants are leaning, but he did admit he's excited about the coming draft on April 20-21.

"I'm not as jittery picking 15th as I've been in other spots in past years," he said. "There are 15 really good players."

Accorsi also said that the Giants haven't had any more college players in to visit than in previous off-seasons.

"We're allowed to have 20 and we will," Accorsi said. "We had 20 last year also. I'd love to have 50 in, if they'd let us."

The Giant Insider has confirmed that BYU TE Doug Jolley has also been in for a look. Jolley joins WRs Jabar Gaffney, Reche Caldwell and Ashley Lelie, TEs Jeremy Shockey, Daniel Graham and Matt Schobel, OT Marc Colombo and DE Dwight Freeney as collegians the Giants have expressed enough interest in to schedule a visit.

Finally, free agent FB Greg Comella, who is representing himself, is very close to agreeing to terms with the Titans. The Giants offered Comella a one-year deal at the minimum, but Comella turned it down. He's expected to land in the ballpark of a four-year, $6 million pact with Tennessee.
