The Giants would have picked here at 130, but this is the pick that got downgraded due to the Ben McAdoo walkie-talkie thing. They got busted down to No. 140.

Some names to watch in the late rounds for the Giants: RBs Samaje Perine and Jamaal Williams, OT Julien Davenport, G Isaac Asiata and Damian Mama, K Zane Gonzalez.

Received this text from a scout after Davis Webb selection in third round (87th overall): "Good value, heard about him in the first ... Has the talent and work ethic."

The Giants saw value in quarterback Davis Webb in the third round and couldn't pass. He now is their quarterback of the future.

Giants give Eli heads up after taking QB Webb

Giants general manager Jerry Reese said he reached out to QB Eli Manning after the team selected former Cal QB Davis Webb in the third round of the NFL draft Friday night.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Ben McAdoo has never met Davis Webb. His evaluation was based off film study.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants called Eli Manning to tell him they were selecting a quarterback. A sort of courtesy call.

Giants add QB Davis Webb

Will he be Eli Manning's backup or eventual replacement? Mel Kiper Jr. says the Cal signal-caller has ideal size and arm strength, but also has some accuracy issues.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

This is a good spot for the Giants to look at the quarterback position with Davis Webb. Think development in a pro offense. Webb played in a Air Raid system at Cal and he won't be forced on to the field with Eli Manning as the No.1 in New York.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Davis Webb had to wait for four other quarterbacks to go before getting picked, but his production speaks for itself. Few put up the numbers he did in 2016, though nobody in the country threw it more.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Jerry Reese says Davis Webb has the "best arm in the draft." He has all the tools, a high ceiling and will be a caddie to Eli Manning for a few seasons.

Mike Sando ESPN Senior Writer 

Know an OC who thought highly of Davis Webb for his knowledge of the game, understanding of defenses and pocket ability. Had someone else say Webb and Jared Goff are basically the same as prospects. A GM said he'd probably take Webb over AJ McCarron if given the choice but that pre-draft talk of Webb possibly jumping into the first round was overblown.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

Giants add QB Davis Webb, potentially setting themselves up for their post-Eli Manning future. Webb will get a couple or three years, at least, to develop under Ben McAdoo and with the help of Manning.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants found their quarterback in the third round. They selected Cal's Davis Webb with the 87th pick. Webb has all the tools. Some inside the league thought he might go late first round.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Some QBs still on the board as well. Davis Webb and Nathan Peterman not selected yet. Worth watching.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Some names on the board for the Giants in the third round include OT Antonio Garcia, RBs Wayne Gallman, John Conner and Samaje Perine and DE Derek Rivers. O-line would be nice at 87.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Other members of the Crimson Tide got more hype, but Dalvin Tomlinson was plenty productive in his own right. He tallied three sacks, 5.5 tackles for loss and four batted passes as a senior in 2016.

Giants plug hole with DT Dalvin Tomlinson

With the loss of Johnathan Hankins in free agency, the Giants added Alabama's Tomlinson, who had 62 tackles and three sacks as a senior.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants select Alabama DT Dalvin Tomlinson in the second round (55th overall). He's the Johnathan Hankins replacement. Going to be hard to run against him and Damon Harrison.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

DTs (Tomlinson, Wormley), QBs (Kizer, Webb) and LB Zach Cunningham still on board with Giants pick closing in.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

With Dalvin Cook and Forrest Lamp gone attention now shifts to DTs (mentioned Dalvin Tomlinson earlier) and possibly LB Zach Cunningham.
