Our Analysts Hand Out New York Giants 2016 Draft Grades

Round 5 Pick 10: Paul Perkins (RB, UCLA)

“It’s a relief, first of all, that the Giants ended up addressing running back near the bottom of the draft, where value is justifiably vouched for. Perkins can boldly be one of a poor man’s Ezekiel Elliott in the sense that he could line up all three downs if ever need be. His vision, shiftiness, balance, versatility and natural look are all relishable. Perkins basically does a little bit of what each Giants running back can do and encompasses it all in one body.
