Giants sign sixth-round pick, CB Corey Ballentine

The Giants sign another 2019 draftee

NCAA Football: Senior Bowl Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants have announced the signing of CB Corey Ballentine, who they selected out of Washburn in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

The newest official member of the Giants' roster deserves the good news after the tragedy being shot and losing a close friend and teammate on the night he was drafted. Because of his injury, Ballentine wasn’t able to take the field at the Giants’ rookie mini-camp, but he has been at the Giants facilities as the team begins its off-season program.

Having played for Washburn, Ballentine is something of a mystery to most Giants' fans. He has a rare blend of size and athleticism which presents intriguing possibilities for future development. Likewise, he could be a candidate to transition to safety and has a similar athletic profile to former Giant Bennett Jackson.

Whatever path his career takes, this is the start and a good day for a young man who deserves one.
