Super Bowl Champs claim LSU's Randle at the end of round two

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB/AP) -

LSU Junior wide receiver Rueben Randle drafted as the last pick in the second round by the Super Bowl Champions New York Giants. He was the overall with the 63th pick.

Randle seems to be the New York Giants' replacement for Mario Manningham, who signed with the San Francisco 49ers as a free agent after last season.

Randle had 53 catches this past season for 917 yards and eight touchdowns. He averaged 17.3 a reception, but struggled against national champion Alabama, gaining 32 yards on five catches.
