Monday Buzz: Keller, Ebron, Donald

The Giants are back at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center today to begin first phase of their offseason workout program. OL Geoff Schwartz, an active Twitter user, send this post out this morning.

In other tidbits from around the football blogoshere, SI.com’s Peter King reports that one of the Giant fans’ top targets believes he’ll be gone by the time the Giants select at No. 12:

“North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron, the clear top player at the position in this year’s draft, was asked by one team he visited recently who he thought would pick him. “Detroit,’’ he said.”

The Lions have the 10th overall selection on May 8th.

The Giants and Dustin Keller? Sounds intriguing, especially if Keller has fully recovered from his extensive knee rehab:

From Rotoworld: “Keller suffered a gruesome injury during the 2013 preseason, tearing three knee ligaments and suffering a dislocation. NFL teams will have to determine exactly what “good to go” means. If Keller is anywhere near his pre-injury form, he’d be a low-risk, high-reward addition for a tight-end needy team like the Giants or Patriots.”

NFL.com’s Bucky Brooks sees Pitt DL Aaron Donald as a goot fit for the Giants:

“Donald would give the G-Men a young interior rusher to feature on exotic stunts and games in nickel downs. Reese clearly understands the importance of getting after the passer in the NFL, so Donald could be squarely in the Giants’ crosshairs next month.”

@Kevin Joseph Patrick Benjamin can block better than Keller or Ebron. But at 12 he would be somewhere around a -20 value. They'd definitely have to trade down if they want Benjamin in the first round.
