8. Minnesota RB, David Cobb
Depth. Depth. Depth. I can’t stress it enough. The running back position for the Giants has been a disaster over the course of the past two seasons. Not only in production, but also in the amount of injuries they’ve faced.
Cobb presents a scary 229 lb. frame, and was nabbed early in the 5th round by Tennessee. He’s a balanced back and a tough man to tackle with just your arms. His ability to pass protect would have surely gone over well with coach Tom Coughlin.
Over the past two offseason’s, the Giants have done their best to add talent to the running back position with the signings of Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen. While drafting Andre Williams out of Boston College last year. I think they’ve learned the hard way, that you could never have enough bodies at the running back position.
