The New York Giants selection of WR Malik Nabers in round 1 (6th overall) comes with great expectation for a Giants offense that hasn’t had an Alpha #1 WR since Odell Beckham Jr. However, GM Joe Schoen possibly has a diamond in the rough with the team’s 6th round (166th) selection of RB Tyrone Tracy Jr. out of Purdue. Initially, Tracy was an unknown among Giant fans when his name was called. However, many teams had coveted him and here’s why:

  • Big play potential.
  • Elusive with yards after first contact.
  • Dual threat/WR experience at Iowa before converting to RB at Purdue.
  • High end athleticism and versatility.
  • Solid frame (5’11/219) with deceptive speed.

Many football analysts have proclaimed Tracy as one of the top steals not only on Day 3 but in the entire draft and he could have a very prominent role in the Giant’s offense as a rookie despite being considered a developmental project. GM Joe Schoen and HC Brian Daboll are both in agreement that Tracy can be special and add a special element for the Giants offense in 2024. RB Devin Singletary should see most of the snaps, but don’t be surprised if you see a lot of Tracy in pre-season and eventually seeing more playing time early on and become a vital cog in the Giants’ offense.
