Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Undrafted free agents with best chance to make all 32 teams | PFN

PFN’s Brad Kelly is enamored with Maryland running back Javon Leake.

New York signed Dion Lewis to be a passing down compliment to Saquon Barkley, but they may have found an equal option in Maryland running back Javon Leake, who averaged 7.9 yards per rush and added three kick return touchdowns in his college career.

Giants' Dave Gettleman thrived at NFL Draft 2020

Praise for Dave Gettleman from Steve Serby.

Go ahead and call him The Comeback Kid.

Now, everyone always swears they had a terrific draft and got better, married value and need perfectly, couldn’t believe so-and-so was still on the board, so there’s that. And Gettleman did not find a “blue goose” edge rusher he liked enough, or a center, or a big receiver, and did not reach for need. And Bill Belichick didn’t draft a quarterback and the Packers didn’t draft a wide receiver. You stay true to your draft noses or live to regret it.

But he addressed with a vengeance the sinkhole otherwise known as the Giants offensive line, finally made good on the promise he made to fix it when he was hired.

And he landed the best safety in the draft in Xavier McKinney in the second round.

Remember when Gettleman arrived vowing to kick ass?

He kicked ass.
