3. CB Amani Oruwariye

Entering the season, there weren't many expectations for Amani Oruwariye to be some sort of big-time player for the Giants. At one time, Oruwariye was a pretty damn solid corner, racking up six interceptions just a couple seasons ago. However, since that season, he hasn't been the same and after a poor preseason, he was released and ended up on the practice squad.

In three games this preseason, Oruwariye allowed six receptions on eight targets for 71 yards. These numbers aren't the worst, especially when you consider that 62 of these yards came against the Jets, but the guy was playing against backups so it's still not a good look.

Oruiwariye could make his way back to the roster at some point this season, but for now, he's going to have to stay patient on the practice squad. We'll see if he'll be able to get a shot at making plays on Sundays this fall, but there's some solid depth for the Giants at cornerback, especially with rookie Tre Hawkins III and Deonte Banks playing so well.
