Sure, you can get lucky like the New York Giants did last season, hitting on players like Olivier Vernon, Janoris Jenkins, and Damon Harrison in free agency.
But relying on free agency to fix your roster is like buying diet pills as a substitute for working out.
The draft is where you build the foundation of your roster – peep Eli Manning, Landon Collins, and Justin Pugh.
So, with the big-name free agents off the board, it’s time for New York to do their homework on draft prospects.
Here’s Davenport’s NFL.com draft profile:
Raw tackle lacking in technique but long on physical traits. Has been able to dominate against lower level of competition and his step up in competition during pre-draft workouts will either throw a wet blanket over his draft grade or send his stock soaring.
The Giants recently signed D.J. Fluker and retained right guard John Jerry, but still, have glaring needs at both tackle positions.
White, on the other hand, is someone the team will visit with, as he projects to be a slot receiver or return man at the next level.
Here’s his DraftAnalyst.com draft profile:
Sun Devils receiver/return specialist Tim White clocked 4.52s in the forty, touched 38.5 inches in the vertical jump and 10-foot-10 in the broad. He did an array of receiver drills while also fielded punts and kicks.
The Giants are also expected to visit NFL Combine “snub” Paul Magloire in the first week of April.
