The New York Giants have been busy scouting and working out quarterbacks on the pro day circuit, which has routinely stolen the headlines. But quarterbacks haven’t been their only focus.

General manager Joe Schoen & Co. have also done a significant amount of work on wide receivers and offensive linemen.

After watching Notre Dame’s Joe Alt earlier this week, the Giants shifted their attention to Duke University, which held their pro day on Thursday.

Long-time NFL draft expert Tony Pauline reports that Giants offensive line coach Carmen Bricillo was on hand to watch Graham Barton and Jacob Monk, whom he met for dinner the night prior.

Among those at the workout are Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Arthur Smith as well as offensive line coaches for the Buffalo Bills and New York Giants. Barton and Monk had dinner with the Giants last night.

The versatile Barton, who had a good showing at Duke’s pro day, is projected as a late first-round, early second-round pick. He obviously not on the Giants’ radar at No. 6 overall but if he slides a bit in Round 2, he becomes a more realistic option.

Monk, a five-year starter and two-year team captain, is a bit undersized and is projected as a Day 3 pick or priority undrafted free agent.
