The New York Giants have signed fifth-round pick Mitch Petrus and seventh-rounder Matt Dodge this afternoon. Petrus, a guard from Arkansas, tied an NFL combine record by bench-pressing 225 pounds 45 times. Dodge has the inside track to replace the retired Jeff Feagles.
I still think the Giants will bring in a veteran punter at some point, but they're rooting for Dodge to win the job. Not to bring up a bad subject, but ask the Redskins what it's like to enter the season with a rookie punter. The Giants will likely sign their first and second-round draft picks in late July or early August.
