Meyer excited for 'slash' Etienne, sought Toney

Urban Meyer and the Jacksonville Jaguars are pleased with the new coach's first draft, but he did admit that he was disappointed to see former Florida receiver Kadarius Toney land with the Giants and not his team on the first night.

The Giants did not address offensive line in the draft. GM Dave Gettleman: "It's really apparent that we have a little more confidence in our offensive linemen players than you guys do." They weren't going to take a player just to take a player. Value had to marry with need.
