When the New York Giants enter the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, they may be looking to add a center with pick No. 36 overall. And one potential option in Temple’s Matt Hennessy.

Hennessy has established himself as a likely Round 2 pick and he’s already met with the Giants, having held a virtual meeting with the team last week.

Something that undoubtedly came up during that meeting was Hennessy’s childhood fandom.

Why? Because the New Jersey native grew up bleeding a deep shade of blue.

“I remember going to those games just as Eli was starting to take over. Remember the Super Bowls. Those were two of my best childhood memories. It was fifth and eighth grade,” Hennessy told ESPN. “Went to the stadium both times for the celebration after. Got all the gear. Got to see the [Lombardi] trophy and everything.”
