Even though Reese is notorious for taking the best possible player available, it makes a lot of sense for him to keep an eye on the linebacker position.
It's no secret that New Yorker's have been clamoring for a stud linebacker since the departure of Antonio Pierce.
Michael Boley and Chase Blackburn have both been solid, and Mark Herzlich and Jacquian Williams are still maturing as second-year guys, but you can never have too much depth at that position.
You can bet the Giants will be watching Manti Te'o of Notre Dame, along with the other 31 NFL teams.
While it will be very revealing to see how Te'o performs under the pressure of the National Championship game, he is sure to be drafted before the Giants have a chance to take him.
It's too bad because Te'o appears to be a high character guy which is always attractive to Giants brass, plus the G-Men already have strong defensive ties to Notre Dame through Justin Tuck.
The more practical linebacker the Giants must watch, will be in the Championship game as well. It's C.J. Mosely of Alabama.
He doesn't have the sexy name recognition of Te'o, or even his former Crimson Tide teammates Donta Hightower and Courtney Upshaw for that matter, but Mosely is clearly a leader and looks NFL ready.
Mosely appears to be the next in line of great linebackers developed by Alabama, and easily someone that Giants should watch very closely.
Another more practical linebacker to watch is Sean Porter of Texas A&M.
Scouts tag this guy as someone with a tremendous nose for the football. He's quick and athletic and it should be interesting to see his skill-set against Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl.
His speed and versatility to go from sacking the QB to stuffing the run makes him a must-watch linebacker for the G-Men.
