NY Giants are Thin at Cornerback – Locals CB’s Can Help
by Spiro Kasabian @Nyspawtsguy_spi
The New York Giants need help on defense. Many of you might not remember this, but the Giants franchise was once known for having great defenses. This has not been the case for the better part of the last decade. The Giants, once again, found themselves in the bottom half of most defensive rankings last year.
A lot of the defense’s issues stemmed from a lack of pass rush. Just as equal of a culprit was the Giants secondary, which has been lacking
The Giants go into the 2019 season barren at the
Two Pennsylvania school Cornerbacks could be attractive options if they Giants decide to pass on selecting a Corner in the First Round. Amani Oruwariye from Penn State and Rock Ya-Sin from Temple could both be Day Two selections that the Giants could show interest in.
- Height and Length are pluses – 6’1″ 203 lbs.
- Physical CB at the line of scrimmage who can help in run defense
- Good Ball-Skills; 7 INTs over the last 2 seasons
- Doesn’t have great makeup speed (timed well at the combine)
- Lacks fluid hips and needs to work on technique
- Good height and length – 6’2″ 190 lbs.
- Not a ton of big game experience (transferred from Presbyterian; one season at Temple)
- Has all the physical attributes to become a lock-down corner if coached up well
- Very good at mirroring WRs
- Helped his draft stock at the Senior Bowl where he stood out
Both Cornerbacks should be there when the Giants are picking at #37, and Oruwariye might even be there for the Giants in Round 3. This position absolutely needs to be addressed, and if they Giants do not select one of the top CBs in the First Round, these two cornerbacks would be good selections in Day Two.
