3 Creative Moves the NY Giants Can Pull on Draft Day
Associated Press
The Giants’ top three decision-makers (from left, CEO John Mara, general manager Jerry Reese and head coach Tom Coughlin) need to have a strong draft this year.

The 2014 offseason has been anything but ordinary for the New York Giants.

Just look at their free-agency activity—the team has signed 15 new players so far, the most since head coach Tom Coughlin’s first season when the Giants brought in 17 new faces to compete for roster spots.

They’re probably not done yet, either. Once the NFL draft concludes, teams usually start to release aging veterans whose replacements have been drafted. That process ultimately continues as we go through the OTAs and training camp.

Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, let’s circle back to the NFL draft, where the pressure is on the Giants' brass to come up with a solid class of contributors who can contribute something in their rookie season.

While in the past the Giants have traditionally stayed put at whatever draft spot they’ve earned, it would not be out of the question for them to take a chance or two as they continue their massive overhaul of an underachieving roster that finished 7-9 a year ago.

Here’s a look at some creative moves, all involving trades, that the Giants could make.
