YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- Kids in Yorktown tuned into ESPN football analyst Mel Kiper on Friday, weighing in on the NFL Draft.

Isabella Lennon said she was excited to see who the Giants would draft and she was hoping they would draft running backs and wide receivers. (They drafted wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in the first round.)

"I think they can make it to the Super Bowl again," Lennon said.

Nicholas Cortino and Seth Bennett were united in their hatred of the Giants.

Cortino, a Cowboys fan, said he was angry the Dallas Cowboys didn't draft Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.

"He's much better than Tony Romo," Cortino said.

Bennett, a Jets fan, also wanted to see the Cowboys draft Manziel.

Both Cortino and Bennett did not think much of the Cowboys chances in 2014, instead favoring the Carolina Panthers.
