2. RB Jashaun Corbin
One thing the NFL has proven is that a team can never have enough running backs. The Giants currently deploy Saquon Barkley, who is as dynamic as any back in the NFL when healthy, but he has shown a continued inability to stay healthy. There’s also Matt Breida, a veteran journeyman, and Gary Brightwell, who is much more of a Joe Judge favorite special teams’ type of a running back.
Jashaun Corbin, an undrafted free agent signed by the Giants in April, would help complete the Giants running back room. In his four seasons in college, two at Texas A&M and two at Florida State, he recorded 320 rushes for 1,771 yards and 14 touchdowns, while catching 60 passes for 360 yards and two touchdowns. Corbin’s rushing average of 5.5 yards per carry is something the Giants would be ecstatic for. Corbin busted onto the national stage on Labor Day in 2021, when he rushed for 144 yards – which included an 89-yard touchdown run – in a near upset against No. 9 Notre Dame.
Corbin has a proven track record of health and effectiveness while playing in both the SEC and ACC, arguably the two toughest college football conferences. Based off talent and skill, Corbin is already better than Brightwell and he would be the perfect third running back behind Barkley and Breida.
