If I were to interview the New York Giants' First Round selection Hakeem Nicks, I would ask him:

What were your feelings when you found out the Giants had selected you?

Were you surprised you waited as long as you did to hear you name called?

What do you hope to bring to the Giants offensive passing game?

Tell us a bit about your workout routine: how much speed training do you do in relation to overall strength work?

Who did you do your offseason training work with leading up to the draft?

Please share with us something about your High School playing days.

Do you feel coming from the University of North Carolina, not as many pro scouts knew of you until this last year?

Your impressions so far of some of your Coaches..Couch Coughlin?  Coach Gilbride? Coach Sullivan?

And now for the "James Lipton's the actors studio" portion of our interview..

Hakeem, your worst moment playing football at any level?

Your best moment?

Toughest drill you have to take part in during a practice?

Best thing a coach ever said to you?

Player you grew up watching that you wanted to be like?

Your favorite song?

Favorite Food?

Someone outside of Athletics who is a role model to you?

That's the end of our "actors studio portion" Hakeem, just a few last questions:

What do you miss most about Carolina?

What do you like most about New York/ New Jersey so far?

Anything else you want us to know about you?

Thanks for the time Hakeem, we look forward to seeing you play here in New York.
