    Not that it is a big deal, but I suspect that the NY Giants will be asked to pay their selected player #31 money. Last year, Olsen (31) was paid less than Anthony Gonzalez (32) in guaranteed money. While both had contracts worth a max of 10 million, Paul Posluszny's four year contract was worth 5 million. Paul was the second pick in the second round and Alan Branch, whose details were undisclosed, was the first pick of the second round.

    Should be interesting to see... I would anticipate a long standoff if the agent for #31 wants to be tough.

    It would be very interesting. #32 may want #31 money so he will stall on negotiations leaving the picks after that in limbo. If I were the agent for #33 or #34, I wouldn't talk to a team till 32 is taking care of.

    So the Giants have an issue at 32, Osi might hold out and what is the deal with Strahan.
