Tom Boisture, the Giants' former director of player personnel, died Friday morning of a form of leukemia. He was 79.

Boisture joined the Giants in 1980 and as in charge of the team's scouting and grading of college players. During his tenure, the Giants acquired Lawrence Taylor, Carl Banks, Mark Bavaro, Rodney Hampton, Michael Strahan and Amani Toomer, to name a few.

The players he helped acquire led the Giants to four Super Bowls, with three victories.

Boisture retired following the 2000 NFL draft.

"Tom was a great talent evaluator and was an important part of our success in the 1980s," said John Mara, the Giants' president and chief executive officer. "The players he drafted revitalized our franchise. He was also a wonderful person and we will miss him dearly."
