Top defensive end in draft welcomes Lawrence Taylor talk
The last time the Giants owned the second-overall pick in an NFL draft, they used it in 1981 on a defensive player, linebacker Lawrence Taylor, and that worked out fairly well, as LT won two Super Bowls and was elected to the Hall of Fame.
My confidence level is going to say I’m the best player, Chubb said. I feel like I put that on tape over four years. I feel like I’m the best player and I’m not going to say any one person is better than me. There are a lot of great players. Saquon Barkley put up ridiculous numbers [Friday] and the past couple of days. Josh Brandon Coleman Jersey Allen, Josh Rosen, all the quarterbacks. A lot of great players. I just feel like I’m up there at the top.

Lamar Jackson, undoubtedly the fastest of the bunch, opted not to run the 40.
Players get asked all sorts of questions during their 15-minute interview with teams. Wisconsin’s Troy Fumagalli was hit this week with an unusual one: What’s up with your missing finger?
Either some don’t notice or some already know and they don’t see it as an issue, Fumagalli said. I’ve had probably half the coaches ask me.
It is interesting that earlier in the week, new Giants head coach Pat Shurmur, when asked if anything he learned from studying every Manning snap in 2017 troubled him, immediately pivoted to something he once spoke about with former NFL executive Bill Polian.
He’s the guy who told me guys who get injured a lot continue to get injured a lot, Shurmur said.

Eli’s been durable, Shurmur said. I’ve been a lot of places where that can’t be said. That’s huge. A guy being available to play and a guy who is a really good player being out there all the time, that’s a huge thing. It’s very important.
