1. CB Cor'Dale Flott

With Deonte Banks established as the Giants top cornerback, the big question entering minicamp was who would start alongside him, with New York’s CB2 position seemingly a wide-open competition.

Over the course of his two-year NFL career, the Giants have been hoping for former LSU cornerback Cor’Dale Flott to come in and take over that role. Some believed this would finally be his year to show his stuff, if only because there wasn’t anyone else who could do so, not with Adoree' Jackson languishing in free agency at the moment. 

That all changed at minicamp, when the Giants opted to sign veteran cornerback Tre Herndon, who was participating in the team’s minicamp as a tryout player, and it was evident the franchise enjoyed what Herndon brought to the table.

Over six years with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Herndon played in 83 regular-season games, accumulating 34 starts, 243 tackles, 32 pass defenses, three interceptions, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. Additionally, Herndon played in 16 games with four starts in 2023.

If the Giants truly believed wholeheartedly in Flott, they would’ve rolled with him as their unquestioned CB2 in 2024. Instead, they looked at free agency, and now the former LSU star will have to beat out Herndon if he wants the job.
