EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Eli Manning isn't paying much attention to the NFL draft, even with the possibility of the New York Giants using the No. 2 overall pick to take an heir apparent to the two-time Super Bowl MVP.

Manning doubted that he would watch the first round of the draft on Thursday, saying it wouldn't be hard to find out whether general manager Dave Gettleman either went for a quarterback or opted to take Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, or traded down.

Manning didn't seem to care. He was more concerned with learning Pat Shurmur's offense during a three-day voluntary minicamp, and he was enjoying all the compliments his new head coach was heaping on him.
