We are about a month away from NY Giants training camp arriving and fans can't wait for the stars to put on a show. Come late July, the excitement for preseason and Week 1 will be at a new level. We are ready for that time of year to get here.

With that said, there are plenty of under-the-radar players who will be ready to make a splash. This includes undrafted free agents, who are always fan-favorites in the summer. So, could any UDFAs somehow find their way on to the 53-man roster? In this piece, we take a look at three guys for Big Blue fans to keep an eye on once camp does arrive:

3. NY Giants OLB Habakkuk Baldonado

Habakkuk Baldonado may not be a household name, but he might have a better chance of making the team then you may think. Baldonado has multiple factors that are working in his favor, including the lack of depth at pass-rusher for this squad. This was an issue last year and it's still something that the front office needs to address.

Throughout the offseason, a major topic of conversation among the fanbase has been adding more pass-rush depth. Fans have been clamoring for Joe Schoen an Co. to sign a veteran free agent, with Justin Houston being among the names mentioned. However, due to cap limitations, it's up in the air if Schoen will make that happen.

Baldonado can make the team in a similar way that Tomon Fox did last year. If the Giants decide to go the young route, Baldonado could stick. He is a strong, tough, disciplined pass-rusher out of Pittsburgh who could provide some rotational pass-rush ability. He has a real chance to beat out players like Elerson Smith and Oshane Ximines if he has a strong enough offseason. Schoen is not done tweaking the roster by a long shot, so definitely keep an eye on Baldonado.
