to complain about trading his best player Sterling Shepard Jersey , but given a chance, Giants head coach Pat Shurmur did not complain about trading his best player.(This greatly enhances his ability to remain Giants coach Pat Shurmur for the time being.)According to Paul Schwartz of the, Shurmur said he was “Absolutely” on board with swapping Beckham for a pair of draft picks and safety Jabrill Peppers.“Everything we do behind the scenes, coaching and roster building, is collaborative,” Shurmur said. “My reaction is always the case with trades, it’s good for both parties.“We feel good about what we got. We got a starting safety, we got a first-round pick and we got our third-round pick. We felt it was good for us and, because we were able to come to an agreement, Cleveland thought it was good for them.’’Cleveland also felt good about taking pass-rusher Olivier Vernon off their hands in exchange for guard Kevin Zeitler http://www.giantslockerroom.com/authentic-darian-thompson-jersey , a swap of big contracts, and Shurmur said both trades had a “business” component. But like General Manager Dave Gettleman, he insisted the Giants expected to be competitive.“We’ve gone into this offseason knowing we have to build,’’ Shurmur said. “I don’t like the word ‘rebuild.’ We’re building. Dave has a plan, we have a plan and we’re just moving forward. . . .“There’s been a lot of changes. When Dave and I talk about this we want to bring in guys to help make our team better. Playing last year we were close in a lot of ways but we shined a bright light on the fact what’s needed to get better and that’s what we’re trying to do.’’Whether the picks they acquired in exchange for Bekcham helps them toward that goal remains to be seen.

They still have Janoris Jenkins in the fold and are expecting Sam Beal to emerge as a starter across from him. They will be hoping that Tony Lippett can emerge as a viable third corner and that Grant Haley builds on his rookie season in his second year. However, Jenkins can’t be long for the Giants, and beyond him they are hoping for a pair of young, injured players to pan out at an important position.So yes, cornerback should definitely be in the conversation throughout the draft. If the Giants are looking for a big corner with the upside to play press-man coverage and versatility to play in both man and zone coverage, they could look at Amani Oruwariye out of Penn State.MeasurablesProsExcellent size and frame for the position.Good, balanced footwork.

Red-shirt senior but only one year of starting experience.Prospect VideoWhat They’re Saying - Lance Zierlein - NFL.com Scouting ReportDoes He Fit The Giants?Oruwariye does fit what James Bettcher likes to do in coverage. With his size and strength, Oruwariye has the ability to be disruptive early in plays when in press-man coverage. He wasn’t in press-man often in college, but when he was, he showed a solid jam to throw off timing and releases. He is also capable in zone coverage Womens Curtis Riley Jersey , particularly when he can position himself over the play drive back down toward the ball. Between his awareness and clean “click and close” footwork, Oruwariye can be legitimately explosive when driving on the ball and routinely broke up plays at the catch point by separating the receiver from the football. Teams will have to be careful in how they match him up. For all that Penn State has been producing elite athletes of late, Oruwariye is not among them. He is a good athlete, particularly for a 6-foot-1 5/8, 205-pound cornerback, but if a receiver is able to win early, he will struggle to recover. But perhaps the most annoying part of his game are the occasional “business decisions” he makes. There are instances when Oruwariye ratchets up his intensity and can lay devastating hits, but other times he will try to avoid contact and get by with arm tackles. That is something he will have to clean up at the next level.Oruwariye will have to answer questions about why he wasn’t able to secure a starting job before his last year at Penn State, but players develop at different rates. It could be that he is finally starting to blossom and whichever team drafts him might be getting him as he begins to ascend and reach his potential.
