Jones: The underdog champions
"When we go into the draft, that could be an area we try to attack," Manning. "Get a skill-position guy who can help us get carries, get catches, in some ways get that same production from the guys we lost last year."
"Any time you can get a skilled player or a talented guy who can catch and make plays that's always helpful," Manning said of Fleener. "But losing two tight ends, don't know when they're going to be back. We may need that tight end where Travis played some, can play in the slot, can move around and give you some different options."
Manning, who stressed he's not directly involved in the Giants' draft preparation, also said he would welcome an addition to the offensive line.
"As an offensive player I've always learned you can never go wrong drafting offensive lineman," he said. "That's how a quarterback thinks."
