A lot of the Giants staff undoubtedly are down south today watching 15 Gators participate in Florida's Pro Day. Of special interest here will be the presence of middle linbacker prospect Brandon Spikes, who most scouting services rank right up there with Alabama's Rolando McClain.
Spikes, one of only three linebackers since 1996 to return four interceptions for touchdowns, and has an obvious mean streak. He demonstrated that when he was suspended for the first half of the Vanderbilt game after trying to gouge the eyes of Georgia running back Washaun Ealey.
The scouts will probably most like to see that 40 time, as Spikes is not known for his footspeed. The last thing the Giants need is a slow middle linebacker in coverage. They've had that. Didn't work.
He didn't run, bench, or do the shuttles at the combine.
