Nat Berhe didn't play in a game in his second season with the New York Giants and learned a lot about life in the NFL. After an offseason of rehabilitation, Berhe was listed as ''full go'' when the Giants opened a three-day voluntary minicamp under new coach Ben McAdoo.

No matter how much money you spend in free agency, there's always going to be an unsolved problem going into the draft. Many teams go into the draft this week looking for the best available player, but they also understand the weaknesses of their rosters.
