Yardbarker: New York Giants

Which offensive players helped themselves during weigh-ins?

The 2021 Senior Bowl officially kicked off Tuesday with weigh-ins. As players prepared for their first day of practice, the staff in Mobile measured prospects to answer questions of talent evaluators.

This year’s Senior Bowl holds a lot more importance than it typically would with no NFL Combine being held, meaning getting these measurements now is crucial. It also means these numbers will be...

2021 Senior Bowl: Winners and losers from defensive weigh-ins

Glenn Beil-USA TODAY Sports

Which defenders stood out in Senior Bowl weigh-ins?

The 2021 Reese’s Senior Bowl is here, and we start with the traditional measuring of the prospects.

Every year the Senior Bowl kicks off by recording each prospects’ height, weight, arm length, wingspan, and hand span. And while obsessing over things like arm length can seem silly — and it definitely can be — these measurables figure into teams’ assessments and evaluations.

While most of the attention...

Giants’ roster move: PK/P Ryan Santoso signed to futures contract

Ryan Santoso | Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Giants keep dual-threat kicker who spent much of 2020 on their practice squad

The New York Giants on Wednesday signed placekicker/punter Ryan Santoso to a reserve/futures contract.

Santoso spent the season on the Giants’ practice squad. He was added to the 53-man roster when Graham Gano was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, but was inactive as Gano came off the list in time to kick against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Santoso’s only regular-season...

Kyle Pitts mocked to NYG by Mel Kiper Jr.

Mel Kiper Jr. has one of the more respected mock drafts every year, and so far, he has the New York Giants taking tight end Kyle Pitts. The Giants already have one starting tight end who is considered to have big potential as a receiving target, of course.

Early free-agents contracts Gettleman should be pro-active with

The 2020 NFL season did not go as planned for the New York Giants, but the franchised showed promise. Big Blue managed just a 6-10 record and was one game away from playing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Wildcard.

Mel Kiper mock draft 1.0: Kyle Pitts to the Giants

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

Could Pitts become the weapon the Giants have lacked in recent years?

As the 2021 NFL calendar rolls on, we are inching closer to the 2021 NFL Draft. A mel Kiper mock draft is another step in the process.

Tuesday morning Kiper released his first mock draft of 2021, and he gave the Giants the receiving weapon they’ve lacked.

Nick Falato takes us around the NFL

We have a Super Bowl matchup, ladies and gentlemen. Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV (55). The Buccaneers defeated the Green Bay Packers, 31-26, to propel Tom Brady to his 10th Super Bowl. Brady threw three second half interceptions, but the Packers couldn’t take full advantage and went three and out after two of the interceptions.

Two big...

Poll: What should the Giants do with Kevin Zeitler?

Needing cap space, should Giants move on from veteran guard Kevin Zeitler?

With projections that the 2021 NFL salary cap will go down from $198.2 million to somewhere around $180 million, we know that the New York Giants have work to do in order to to clear cap space.

Over the Cap lists the Giants as $3.373 million over a projected $176 million cap. That will be helped if the cap is actually $180 million or higher, but still illustrates that the Giants have...

Could Cooper be a value pick to bolster the Giants’ pass rush?

“You can never have enough pass rushers.”

That phrase should be well-known to New York Giants fans, particularly after the mantra has repeatedly lead to success for the team. That phrase doesn’t just mean elite pass rushers selected at the top of the draft, it also applies to maintaining a consistent supply of depth players that defensive coordinators can send after...

Were the Giants’ receivers that bad? If so, how can they fix them?

There is a well-established sentiment that the New York Giants wide receivers simply were not good enough in 2020.

They didn’t get open often enough, they lacked the kinds of threats needed to open up the offense, and as a whole were just disappointing. But how close is that sentiment to reality?

This week Nick Falato, Joe DeLeone, and I turnour attention to the receiver position, analyzing...

Could Browning be the linebacker Giants fans have been waiting for?

New York Giants fans have been screaming — aching — for their team to draft a linebacker highly. Yet they haven’t done so since 1984, and they’ve only selected one linebacker in the first two rounds since 1992. That player being Clint Sintim, who would rightly be reckoned as an EDGE nowadays anyway.

It is entirely likely that yet another draft will pass without the...
