The New York Giants were impressed by USC linebacker Devon Kennard during a pre-draft visit he made with football officials.
“He made a great impression,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. “He played multiple postions. He’s a tough hard-nosed football player. He was great on the (dry erase) board. He was great on that. He really convinced the coaches he was really a sharp football player.”
That was echoed by Marc Ross, the vice president of player evaluation.
“This guy’s one of the sharpest guys we’ve had in terms of football knowledge,” Ross said.
