When I posted my unofficial New York Giants depth chart some wondered why names of undrafted free agents they expected to see were not listed. Well, that was because the Giants had not yet made those signings official.

On Wednesday, the Giants officially announced the addition of four more undrafted players — defensive back Jaquarius Landrews of Mississippi State, running back Javon Leake of Maryland, wide receiver Austin Mack of Ohio State and tackle Kyle Murphy of Rhode Island.

Here is more about the four players added on Wednesday:

Landrews played two years for the Bulldogs after transferring from Copiah-Lincoln Community College in Mississippi.Landrews played in 23 games with 16 starts and totaled 98 tackles, five tackles for loss, 3.0 sacks, one interception and 13 pass breakups.

Leake played in 32 games in three seasons at Maryland and finished his career with 134 rushing attempts for 1,110 yards (8.3-yard avg.) and 17 touchdowns. He had his most productive season in 2019, when he ran for 736 yards and eight scores on 102 attempts and added all nine of his career receptions for 55 yards. Leake also returned 57 kickoffs for an average of 25.2 yards and three touchdowns, including a 100-yarder.
