After making 6 selections in the NFL draft the Giants signed 5 undrafted players to come in and compete for a spot on the 53-man roster. Undrafted free agents have a long uphill battle to make any roster in the NFL. Though occasionally a few gems slip through and have solid careers.
Among current Giants only fullback Henry Hynoski, Wide Receiver Victor Cruz, defensive lineman Kerry Wynn, and linebacker Mark Herzlich have made Big Blue as an undrafted free agent. Obviously the Giants have some experience in making their undrafted free agent signings count. Cruz is a star and Hynoski is a valued fullback.
The Giants have done their due diligence on all the 2015 NFL Draft prospects. These are 5 players that they considered worthy of trying out for the team, come the heat of training camp. Read all about the 5 undrafted free agents the Giants signed!
