According to Jenna Laine of ESPN, the New York Giants will visit with Arizona safety/linebacker prospect Paul Magloire in the first week of April.

Magloire, who led his team in tackles (81) while recording 2.5 sacks, was viewed as an NFL Combine “snub” not only by Laine but by Sports Illustrated as well.
Here’s NFL.com’s draft profile on Magloire:
Plays hard and has the instincts needed for the position, but his lack of athleticism, size and play speed are likely too much to overcome on the next level.
Last season, the Giants spent their third-round draft choice on safety Darian Thompson, a player the team feels as though will be a potential “stud.”
They also lucked out by finding Andrew Adams, who somehow wasn’t selected by a team during the draft, as an undrafted free agent.
With the team set at safety, it would seem as though they value Magloire as more of a linebacker – a position they sure could use.
