Draft picks and undrafted free agents are fun because of the mystery they bring.
Nobody has any idea how a player from the college ranks may perform once given an NFL opportunity, thus, making the process interesting, watching them go from no-name to potential impact player.
According to NJ.com’s James Kratch, here are the four most likely undrafted players to make the New York Giants roster this season.
4. Travis Rudolph
Based on his strong route running skills and ability to contribute on special teams, former Florida State wide receiver Travis Rudolph becomes an instant option to make the club.
Kratch gives him the “best shot” out of all the undrafted wideouts to make the team, although, he doesn’t believe it to be a “given.”
He’ll be competing with Darius Powe and Roger Lewis for the final spot on the roster at receiver.
3. Chad Wheeler
The Giants are so desperate for offensive lineman that they actually converted undrafted defensive lineman Jarron Jones to the o-line in order to weigh all of their options.
Kratch says Wheeler has “impressed” so far and is “sitting pretty” if they carry nine offensive lineman, with the worst case scenerio being that he ends up on the practice squad.
Of course, though, he must pass through waivers in order to make the practice squad which is never a lock.
2. Calvin Munson
You probably haven’t heard much about Calvin Munson but he’s a potential “special teams demon” and someone who could serve as a pass rusher in certain situations.
With J.T. Thomas no lock to make the roster at linebacker, Munson becomes a legitimate option.
1. DaShaun Amos
You would think the Giants are doing great at cornerback when you look at the top three on the depth chart, but after Janoris Jenkins, Eli Apple and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie it’s pretty bare.
Kratch believes there is likley two open roster spots at cornerback this summer and with unproven names like Mykkele Thompson, Valentino Blake, Donte Deayon, and Michael Hunter his competition, former ECU corner DaShaun Amos has a good chance at making the roster.
