Pat Shurmur, Chris Mara, Kevin Abrams and more on hand for Ohio State’s pro day
Whether or not the New York Giants draft a quarterback at the top of the 2019 NFL Draft remains to be seen, but we do know that some of the most important decision makers in their organization are out pounding the pavement and doing their due diligence.
Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network is reporting that the Giants’ contingent attending the Ohio State pro day is led by Chris Mara (vice president of player personnel), Kevin Abrams (assistant general manager and vice president of football operations), coach Pat Shurmur, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks Coach Mike Shula, and Chris Pettit, who is one of the Giants’ top scouts. Garafolo is also reporting that not only will the Giants be scouting quarterback Dwayne Haskins, but they had dinner with him Tuesday night.

Perhaps not coincidentally, these are many of the same decision makers who were on hand for Kyler Murray’s pro day at Oklahoma last week.
Of course, Ohio State has a bevy of talented prospects in this year’s draft and the Giants will want to get a look at all of them. But no position has a greater impact on a franchise than the quarterback, and with a pick in the top 10 the Giants want to make sure they make the right decision.
We will have more from the Ohio State pro day as we get it, so stay tuned to Big Blue View.
