Training camp is just around the corner and that means there will be some heated battles for fans to keep track of. From veterans, to draft picks, to undrafted players, the NY Giants will have some great competitions ahead of them. Coaches will have a hard time evaluating the players and trying to put together, what they feel, is the best team going into next season.

While most people will most certainly have their eyes on players like rookie receiver Malik Nabers, second-round safety Tyler Nubin, and star edge-rusher Brian Burns, there are some undrafted players that have already caught the eye of many around the organization in rookie minicamp, and you better believe they are hungry for a chance to prove they belong on this roster come training camp. Let's take a look at some names to get familiar with:

4. Casey Rogers

Former Oregon defensive tackle Casey Rogers has been one of the main undrafted free agents turning heads so far this offseason. Multiple coaches have already mentioned him as someone to definitely keep an eye on. He flashed multiple times during rookie minicamp, and he has a real chance to steal a spot on the back end of the interior defensive line group.

Rogers is an older player at 25, but he still has a chance to beat out some of the other players in the room if he keeps building off the momentum from minicamp. The interior line group is deep, but spots can be taken. Dexter Lawrence, Rakeem Nunez-Roches, and newly signed veteran Jordan Phillips figure to have spots secured. After that, there is a lot of room for shake-ups.

Rogers is a tough, gritty, interior disrupter with an attitude. He has some ability to get after the quarterback, along with some sneaky athleticism to boot. He is best known for being a great space eater, taking on double teams, clogging up run lanes, and being stout against the run. He is a high motor, effort, and hustle player. Keep an eye on him starting in late July.
