3. CB Nick McCloud

When you think of the Giants cornerbacks room, Adoree' Jackson and first-round pick Deonte Banks come to mind. Even Darnay Holmes, who was fantastic during Day 2 of OTAs, is another big-name guy that fans have their eyes on. Well, go ahead and add CB Nick McCloud to your list of intriguing guys to focus on this season.

McCloud is an under-the-radar guy who can make quite the impact on this team. According to the Giants website, McCloud posted multiple pass deflections during the first day of OTAs, including one going up against Waller that prevented the Giants TE from celebrating yet another touchdown. That's big time right there.

Last season for the Giants, his first with Big Blue, McCloud appeared in 14 games for Daboll, making eight starts. He finished the year with 43 total tackles and 1.5 sacks. Again, he may not be the biggest name on this Giants defense, but he's impressing the staff at OTAs and he's never going to make life easy for opposing pass-catchers. He's a hard working dude who's also easy to root for.
