and Raiders"This is one loss New York Giants fans are unlikely to complain about. The team’s 2018 starting free safety Evan Engram Color Rush Jersey , Curtis Riley, is signing with the Oakland Raiders.Riley, signed as a free agent last offseason, was the surprise winner of the Giants’ competition for the free safety spot. To put it mildly, he did not play well.Riley led all safeties with 23 missed tackles, and a consistent habit of taking poor angles in run support led to a Pro Football Focus run grade of 37.1, last in the league among 64 qualifying safeties.The Giants signed Antoine Bethea, a 13-year veteran who will be 35 when the season begins, to fill Riley’s spot.“You need a guy in the back end that can get everybody lined up and make all the adjustment calls. If you don’t have that, you can’t function,” said GM Dave Gettleman. “I’ve watched Antoine (Bethea) for years Patrick Omameh Color Rush Jersey , you talk about a great sixth round pick. He is an adult, he’s a professional football player. He knows what he is doing, he can still play. I have this crazy idea that age doesn’t bother me. I better because my age doesn’t bother me. At the end of the day, it’s about a good football player. Antoine Bethea is still a hell of a football player.”Latimer returnsThe Giants have also made the re-signing of wide receiver Cody Latimer official. A hamstring injury limited Latimer to six games last season. He caught 11 passes and averaged 24.6 yards on five kickoff returns.

The problem is that until the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine, there were no real “blue chip” prospects who stand out as obvious Top 10 picks. There are, however, a bevy of talented prospects with the upside to start and be significant contributors in a variety of NFL offenses. That’s good news for a New York Giants team suddenly in dire need of young, affordable receiving talent for their offense. Giants’ GM Dave Gettleman has repeatedly voiced his preference for “big men” playing football Landon Collins Color Rush Jersey , while offensive architect Pat Shurmur’s scheme looks to get the ball to playmakers in space. Given his size and ability to create after the catch, the two could find common ground in Arizona State receiver N’Keal Harry.MeasurablesProsPrototypical size and frame for the NFL, uses his size to his advantage.Very strong lower body and great contact balance.

He has the size that Dave Gettleman covets in football players, while his ability after the catch is a great fit with Pat Shurmur’s scheme. Harry was primarily used on short underneath passes or wide receiver screens, and he can be deadly with the ball in his hands. Like many of the running backs this year, Harry has tremendous balance through contact, which combined with his powerful lower body, lets him disregard arm tackles and keep running. Interestingly Dalvin Tomlinson Color Rush Jersey , he doesn’t profile as a player who would be especially “shifty” after the catch, showing stiffness in his hips and ankles, but he is able to stick a leg in the ground and cut explosively -- if not smoothly. Harry shows strong hands to hold on to the ball in contested catch situations, but he also has occasions where he fights the ball or suffers concentration drops.All told, N’Keal Harry isn’t a perfect receiver and has issues to work on, most notably his releases against press coverage and consistency catching the ball. However, his combination of traits could make him appealing to both the Giants’ general manager and head coach. If he is on the board in the second round, the Giants might be hard-pressed to pass on him.
