NY Giants general manager Joe Schoen is a busy man these days, as is head coach Brian Daboll. After traveling to Columbus for the Ohio State Pro Day, the two Big Blue leaders have made their way to check things out over at Boston College. It goes without saying, but one of the prospects they’ll have their eyes on most will be wideout Zay Flowers.

According to NFL insider Tom Pelissero, the G-Men will be having dinner with the speedster on Thursday night. Flowers is widely considered a first-round player, and he very well could be on the board for the G-Men and Schoen at No. 25 overall.

Boston College WR Zay Flowers could end up with the NY Giants next month

Flowers turned plenty of heads at the NFL Combine, as he showed up looking pretty dang jacked. Throughout the season, the Boston College standout played at around 170 pounds. However, as soon as the offseason arrived, he worked his tail off in the weight room to put on size. He did just that, adding 13 pounds of muscle.

On Tuesday night, Schoen and Daboll met with Jaxon Smith-Njigba, a playmaker that plenty of Giants fans are hoping will still be on the clock at No. 25. However, there’s a chance a team like the Patriots or Ravens could snatch him up first.

The same can be said for Flowers, who has seen his stock rise over the last month or so. Flowers, Smith-Njigba, Quentin Johnson and other wideouts have been mentioned as potential first-round selections for Big Blue.

While a cornerback and interior offensive lineman has also been mentioned as a possibility for the Giants in the first round, a lot of people are hoping a WR1 for the future will hear his name called. Flowers could end up being that guy for Schoen, Daboll and Co.
