Here are the latest updates about the Giants from the 2023 NFL Combine...

March 4, 9:50 a.m.

The New York Giants are among numerous teams to have met with Texas running back Bijan Robinson at the scouting combine.

Robinson is easily the top running back coming out of this year's draft class. He told reporters this afternoon that his pro comparison is none other than star Giants running back Saquon Barkley.

Robinson topped 100 yards nine times on the season for the Longhorns. He finished his junior year with 258 carries for 1,580 yards and 18 touchdowns. He also reeled in 19 passes for 314 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

One of the top defensive prospects in this class, Alabama edge rusher Will Anderson, called Robinson the best offensive player he’s faced.

While re-signing Barkley certainly remains a priority for the Giants, they at least appear to be doing their due diligence on the top back in the draft.

The Giants have had a formal interview with Cincinnati Bearcats wide receiver Tyler Scott this week at the NFL Combine, according to a report from USA Today's Art Stapleton.

In his junior season with the Bearcats, the 5-foot-11 wideout had 899 yards on 54 receptions with nine touchdowns in 12 games. In the 2021 season, when Cincinnati made the College Football Playoff, Scott tallied 520 yards on 30 catches with five touchdowns in 14 games.

That makes at least three WRs Big Blue has spoken to this week in Indianapolis, USC's Jordan Addison and TCU's Quentin Johnston

USC wide receiver Jordan Addison spoke with reporters at the NFL Combine on Friday and confirmed he met with the Giants. After playing in Los Angeles during his college career, Addison believes he can make the transition to the large market in New York.

"With all the lights and cameras, I feel like transferring that in New York, it wouldn't be hard for me to succeed in that environment," Addison said.

After transferring from Pitt ahead of last season, the 6-foot receiver tallied 59 catches for 875 yards and eight touchdowns with USC.

March 3, 9:45 a.m.

TCU wide receiver Quentin Johnston, a potential first-round pick, spoke with reporters at the NFL Combine on Friday and mentioned that he met with the Giants on Wednesday.

"Very welcoming staff," Johnston said. "I see myself possibly just like when I was in high school."

Johnston also said that he will meet with the Giants again leading up to the draft.

The 6-foot-4 receiver hauled in 60 passes for 1,069 yards and six touchdowns for a TCU team that earned a berth in the College Football Playoff last season. Johnston remains confident in his abilities ahead of the draft.

"I'm going from play to play saying, 'I'm better than you.'" Johnston said. "Not to be cocky, but that's how I approach every play."

The Giants hold the 25th overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

March 1, 11:15 a.m.

LSU defensive end BJ Ojulari, a potential first-round pick, spoke on Wednesday at the NFL Combine about the possibility of playing with his older brother, Giants outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari, saying that it would "be a blessing" to be on the same team.

"We've always talked about it," Ojulari said. "So when he went to college, he wanted me to come play with him, but I took a different route. So this, I don't have the power to choose that. So if I end up with him, I think that will be a blessing as well to be able to play with my brother again and dominate on the other end of the ball from him."

Ojulari went on to say that he's had a formal interview with New York that went "very well," and naturally, his older brother texted him a couple tips on what to expect in the interview.

"Yes sir, I had a formal [interview] and I think the formal went very well," Ojulari said. "Just being able to meet the whole staff, it was a great feeling walking out of that room after that formal interview."

The 6-foot-3, 250 pound defensive end added that his older brother has been a mentor to him throughout their playing careers, and explained the differences between their styles of play.

"He has a great impact on me, he's like a mentor to me," Ojulari said. "He's playing for the Giants right now. I lean on him a lot. He's been through the same process, he's at the level where I'm trying to get. Anything that I can ask him, I'm going to ask him."

Ojulari added: "I think we have some similarities, but I don't think we play the same. I have a little different playing style... I think I'm more of a finesse play style and he's more striking, more like a bulldozer and I'm more of a finesser."
