The New York Giants have, to this point in time, signed five undrafted free agents. Here is information culled from a variey of sources about those six players.

Alonzo Tweedy, S, Virginia Tech

Tweedy, a 6-foot-1, 197-pounder is regarded as a special teams ace. CBS Sports says Tweedy "might not have a natural spot in the NFL, but he might be able to stick due to his impact on special teams."

During the pre-draft process ESPN analyst Kevin Weidl tweeted that Tweedy "lacks a true position but is worth a late rd look based on special teams production. Big time gunner in punt coverage."

Etienne Sabino, LB, Ohio State

Here is some information on Sabino from SB Nation's Ohio State web site, Land-Grant Holy Land:

Sabino has the physical capability to be a solid NFL player. He is well-built at 6'2, 247 pounds, and is endowed with the athleticism to be used in a variety of roles, from rushing the passer to holding the edge. His speed and hustle are excellent.

Sabino does not appear to have very good natural instincts, however, and could have trouble getting on the field in any capacity but special teams as a result. Despite his potential, Sabino had a rather underwhelming career with the Buckeyes.

Tony Pauline of TFY Draft Insider says the 6-foot-2, 247-pound Sabino "offers the physical skills to play at the next level. He must polish his game and learn to do the little things well but is worth stashing on a practice squad for future development."

Chase Clement, TE LSU

"Clement plays with the style of a offensive lineman and could find a place at the next level as the third tight end on the depth chart," writes Pauline for Draft Insider.

He is a 6-foot-5, 265-pound player who caught only five passes last season for LSU. Pauline also says Clement is a "Strong, blocking tight end with a one-dimensional game."

Charles James, DB, Charleston Southern

James a 5-foot-9, 184-pound cornerback with an apparent nose for the football. According to CSU Sports, James was a walk-on at CSU, "finished his career at CSU with the school record for interceptions in a single-season (six in 2011) and in a career with 12. He was a two-time FCS All-American selection at cornerback and was named First Team All-Big South three times."

Charles Dieuseul, LB Mount Union

Not much to go on with Dieuseul. From his Mount Union football bio:Only Mount Union player to win conference MVP award at two different positions


-- All-America First Team
-- All-North Region First Team
-- All-OAC First Team
-- Second on the team with 89 tackles (13.5 for loss) with 5.5 sacks, three interceptions, a forced fumble and three pass breakups.

[NOTE: There were reports that Gardner-Webb offensive lineman Steve Demilio has signed with the Giants. His agent confirmed, however, that Demilio will join the Baltimore Ravens.]
