Michael Eisen reports for Giants.com after two days of drafting New York Giants executives, coaches and scouts are happy with the seven players they selected and convinced they have improved a team that won the NFC championship last season. The Giants draft haul included two CBs, two defensive linemen, a QB, a WR and a PK. Before the draft ended, the Giants coaches and scouts were on the phone with players they have interest in who were not drafted. Coach Jim Fassel identified tight end, fullback and linebacker as positions where the Giants would like to add players. The addition of PK John Markham probably spells the end to PK Brad Daluiso's career with the team. The addition of QB Jesse Palmer almost certainly ends the Giants career of backup QB Mike Cherry after four seasons.
