We come to the fullback position today as we go position-by-position to determine our 2012 Big Blue View Preseason All-NFC East team. There aren't a lot of legitimate nominees for this spot.
Here are the fullback nominees:
Henry Hynoski, Giants -- The popular Hynocaurus played fairly well as a rookie for the Giants last season after being undrafted coming out of the University of Pittsburgh. Hynoski is a 6-foot-1, 266-pound blocking back who caught four passes in 11 games last season. He hopes for an increased role in the offense in 2012, but his primary role will always be to clear a path for the guys behind him. Pro Football Focus gave Hynosky an overall grade of -0.4 for his rookie season.
Lawrence Vickers, Cowboys -- The 6-foot, 250-pound Vickers is a six-year veteran who spent last season with the Houston Texans. Vickers is a veteran blocking back who carried the ball once and caught four passes last season.
Stanley Havili, Eagles -- Havili is a 6-foot, 230-pound player drafted in the seventh round by the Eagles in 2011. He spent last season on Philadelphia's practice squad.
