Giants' Potential UDFA Targets: Charlie Gantt TE, Michigan State

We have talked many times about the New York Giants' need to bring in an additional blocking tight end or a fullback so that Bear Pascoe can go back to that role. Today, let's look at another undrafted free agent option for the blocking tight end role.

Michigan State's Charlie Gantt is a player I don't know much about, to be honest. Some of you have brought up his name in the backup tight end discussions, though, so let's talk about him. Now that I think of it, Gantt is probably appropriate to discuss today because of our earlier post about linebacker Greg Jones, a teammate at Michigan State.

Gantt is a 6-foot-4, 252-pounder. Here is a little bit about him from NFL.com:

Gantt has enough size and speed along with some redeeming qualities to become a No. 2 / backup tight end. Does a good job releasing off the line but doesn't run the sharpest routes or have the speed to consistently threaten a defense up the seam. Will show strong, confident hands extending away from his frame for the catch but also drops routine passes on occasion. Is a quality run and pass blocker but not dominant in either facet.

Your thoughts on this guy, Giants' fans?
