NFL teams are aggressively signing draft picks on Thursday night, and the defending Super Bowl champs are no different.

Brian Ayrault, the agent for fourth-round pick Brandon Mosley, revealed Thursday evening that his client has signed a four-year rookie deal with the G-Men.

Mosley is an interesting developmental tackle with ideal dimensions at 6-foot-6, 314 pounds. Mosley has massive, 11-inch hands and 34-inch arms. He could be New York’s right tackle of the future.

Also agreeing to terms with the Giants on Thursday was third-round pick Jayron Hosley, according to Mike Garafolo of theĀ Newark Star-Ledger. Hosley (pictured) is expected to receive a $515,000 signing bonus on his four-year pact.

Though Hosley’s stock may have been affected adversely by a failed drug test before the draft, he was a dynamic playmaker at cornerback for Virginia Tech. Hosley started 26 games and recorded 12 interceptions. Hosley also returned a pair of punts for touchdowns in college.

    Hosley Mosley!

    Can’t wait to see what Hosley can do on defense and especially on special teams. We need anything, anything that can help Eli get as much field position as possible!!

    Prince /Thomas/Webster/Hosley/Coe/Johnson is a very nice group of dbs. Throw Kenny Phillips and Rolle in there and you are looking at the best secondary in the nfc east. Pretty scary thought for the rest of the league when you think about the pressure up front the Giants were able to generate last season with a much poorer secondary. Eli in his prime, Nicks/Cruz/Randle/Jerringan/ and Hixon to throw to….Let the good times roll Giant fans because the driveforfive is coming!

    Oh, the GMeN signed two more athletic freaks to their roster? Now there’s a surprise.

    Reese & Coughlin: not done yet

    It’s easier to sign a pair of rhyming players – Hosley/Mosley.
