Between February 20th-24th, each NFL team is given permission to formally meet with 60 draft prospects (informal meetings take place at the “Train Station” ). Each formal session spans 15 minutes in length. Although brief, these interviews can go a long way in winning over, or souring, a coaching staff on a particular player. During workouts the prospects are machine-like, but face to face teams can unlock personality and character. Heading into the final night of the combine, the Giants have been confirmed to meet with these 15 prospective draft picks:

Jace Amaro, TE Texas Tech

Joel Bitonio, OT Nevada

Ka’Deem Carey, RB Arizona

Eric Ebron, TE North Carolina

Mike Evans, WR Texas A&M

Justin Gilbert, CB Oklahoma State

Adrian Hubbard, OLB Ohio State

Carlos Hyde, RB Ohio State

Cyrus Kouandijo, OT Alabama

Marqise Lee, WR USC

Jack Mewhort, OT Ohio State

Paul Richardson, WR Colorado

Michael Sam, DE Missouri

De’Anthony Thomas, RB/FLEX Oregon

David Yankey, OG Stanford

That’s 3 offensive tackles, 3 running backs, 3 wide receivers, 2 tight ends, 2 pass rushers, 1 guard and 1 cornerback. Trying to read into meeting priority is probably over-analysis, but eight at the skill positions is definitely a surprise look.
