Reese looking at LSU prospects

It's that time of the year when the Giants travel all around the country to attend pro days and scout college prospects.
Today, GM Jerry Reese is at LSU's pro day, according to my man Mike Triplett, who covers the Saints for the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
The Giants like their LSU guys, as Reese has drafted two Tigers high in his past three drafts, taking wide receiver Rueben Randle in the second round last year and safety Chad Jones in the third round in 2010.
The Giants also drafted cornerback Corey Webster in the second round in 2005 and had former LSU quarterback Ryan Perrilloux floating on and off their practice squad in 2011 and in camp last year.
Thomas McGaughey, LSU's special teams coordinator, also was an assistant on Tom Coughlin's staff.
So let's take a look at who the Giants could have an eye on at LSU's pro day:
DE/LB Barkevious Mingo: Expected to be gone by the time the Giants pick at 19.
DE Sam Montgomery: Scouts Inc. has Montgomery rated as the 30th-best prospect, so perhaps a second-round consideration if he's there for the Giants that late.
LB Kevin Minter: Mel Kiper has Minter rated as the fourth-best inside linebacker.
S Eric Reid: Giants like Reid and can use a safety for the future with Antrel Rolle under contract for only two more years and Stevie Brown with the team on a one-year RFA tender.
DT Bennie Logan: Rated the 11th-best defensive tackle by Scouts Inc.
CB Tyrann Mathieu: Intriguing talent, but this risk-reward comes with baggage. Giants do have a veteran locker room and Webster to mentor Mathieu.
