It's that time of the year where the NY Giants are working overtime in meeting with prospects and bringing them to East Rutherford to see if they'll be a good fit with the team. We've already heard of Rome Odunze, Marvin Harrison Jr., Malik Nabers and others getting their Top 30 visits done.

Now, though, there are two new players on the list for Giants fans to keep close tabs on. That'd be Penn State pass-rusher Chop Robinson and Kentucky cornerback Andru Phillips. Will either of these guys end up making the move to New Jersey this spring?

Penn State pass-rusher Chop Robinson will meet with the NY Giants

Starting with Robinson, goodness, this guy is one heck of a talent. Widely viewed as a first-round pick, Robinson posted four sacks in 2023 and he had 5.5 in 2022. After the Giants traded for Brian Burns to pair with Kayvon Thibodeaux, you'd think the G-Men would be set on the outside.

However, Joe Schoen sees outside linebacker as a premium position and with Azeez Ojulari battling injury issues, the Giants GM could look to bring in a new stud via the draft too. However, there's no way NY would take him No. 6 overall - but if he falls to the second round or if the Giants want to trade back into the late first round, we could see something happening here.

As for Phillips, the 5-11, 180-pounder has seen his stock rise quite a bit thanks to a strong offseason. In 2023 for the Wildcats, he finished with 47 total tackles and five pass deflections. The Giants need serious help for the secondary, as depth is quite limited at both cornerback and safety.

Deonte Banks is the CB1 for this team, as the former first-rounder was downright electric in 2023 during his rookie season. Phillips is viewed as a potential third-round or fourth-round pick. If he's still available come Day 3, Phillips is the kind of playmaker who could prove to be a mid-round steal for a team. Who knows, maybe that team will end up being the Giants.
