With the 149th pick off the 2016 NFL Draft, the New York Football Giants select Paul Perkins, Running Back, UCLA.

Perkins was quietly one of the most talented and versatile running backs in this year's draft. The Giants have needed a solid running back pretty much since Tiki Barber retired and now they have a guy who should be able to step in as the starter right away.

Congrats, Paul!

GO BRUINS!
