The current New York Giants regime is changing the culture for the better.
They would like to return to the winning track, which they haven’t done since 2016 when they went 11-5.
Head coach Brian Daboll is spending time with his top players during their offseason workouts.
Meanwhile, general manager Joe Schoen is getting rid of unfavorable contracts.
He will also be running his first draft for the team, and he will get valuable assistance in announcing the fifth overall selection.
Make-A-Wish recipient & huge #Giants fan Sam Prince will be announcing the #5 pick tomorrow night.
Sam battled a heart condition, received a transplant and is doing much better.

Pro Football Focus writer Ari Meirov revealed that Giants fan Sam Prince will be announcing the pick.
Aside from being the team’s fan, he is also a Make-A-Wish recipient who went through a heart transplant.
Prince found out about the news from Schoen, with Daboll and Giants legend Eli Manning.
Schoen asked Prince, “Do you have any advice for me, like my first draft pick?”
To which Prince responded, “Don’t mess it up.”
He was pumped up knowing that he would announce the pick and received a customized Giants jersey from Schoen.
The Giants Are In A Good Draft Position
Aside from the number five pick, the Giants also have the seventh overall selection.
They should use those picks for an offensive lineman and an edge rusher based on last year’s performance.
While the Giants will most likely use the fifth pick, they might listen to offers for the seventh.
However, they are in a great position to stay put and use the pick if there are no proposals to their liking.
Ideally, the Giants should go offense for number five and defense for number seven.
The talent pool for edge rushers is deeper, and they will still get a high-value player at that spot.
