NEW YORK (AP) - No team was busier than the Giants in free agency. Still, they're not fooling themselves into believing their offseason work is close to finished.
The Giants have signed 16 veterans already, addressing problems on both lines and in the secondary after they went 7-9 last season. General manager Jerry Reese says that only means some needs have been taken care of.
Those also are areas the Giants could hit in this week's draft. Reese believes ''the draft stands alone. What we did in free agency really doesn't affect what we do in the draft.''
Fortunately for New York, which picks 12th, this draft is so deep that whoever Reese grabs should be a potential starter from Day 1. Speculation has centered on North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron, Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald, and Notre Dame offensive tackle Zack Martin.
