4 undrafted free agents who will make a splash at NY Giants training camp

2. TE Austin Allen
The tight end room may be the weakest position room for the Giants which could bode well for undrafted rookie Austin Allen. Currently, the tight end group’s roster features veterans Ricky Seals-Jones, Jordan Akins, and Chris Myarick along with 2022 fourth round pick Daniel Bellinger. It was widely expected that Bellinger would run away with the job, but he was recently placed on the PUP list, putting that into doubt.
Allen could turn some heads quickly at training camp. Allen, a 6-8, 260 pounder from Nebraska, has the perfect physical makeup to be a solid pass catcher and blocker in the NFL. In his four seasons at Nebraska, Allen had modest production, where he caught 65 balls for 975 yards and three touchdowns. Allen’s receiving game really turned on last fall, when he caught 38 passes for 602 yards and two touchdowns.
The tight end position group is the most wide open, unpredictable battle in Giants training camp. With Bellinger out for the time being, Allen will see plenty of time on the field, where his size and blocking abilities will likely standout to the coaching staff.
