Tight end David Njoku is the player most often given to the New York Giants in mock drafts. He also happens to be a Cedar Grove, N.J. native who grew up rooting for the Giants and New York Jets who says it would be “awesome” to play for one of those two teams.

“It feels like yesterday that I was a little kid and I was the biggest fan watching them on TV, hoping one day I would go to a game, and now I’m here and could possibly be on that team next season. It’s a great blessing,” Njoku said. “To go home? That would mean a lot. I mean, anywhere I go honestly is a blessing, but being raised in Jersey and watching the Giants and the Jets and having them both as my top two favorite teams when I was younger, it would be awesome.”

Njoku confirmed the Giants are one of the many teams he has met with.

“When it comes to formal and informal meetings, I’ve probably met with all of them,” Njoku said. “I think wherever I go, I can definitely bring speed. I’m willing to block anywhere, attached or detached. Speed. And a lot of fun.”

Could he be bringing that fun to New Jersey as a member of the Giants? We’ll find out in a few weeks.
