New York Giants

CB Madre Harper

The second-year cornerback opened some eyes this spring. He came in bulked-up and in great shape, and took advantage of a mostly vacant defensive backfield during OTAs when most of the Giants’ cornerbacks didn’t attend. That created an opportunity Harper took advantage of this spring. After being signed off the Raiders’ practice squad early last season, Harper is one to watch this year. He has the size and skill set this coaching staff will find ways to use. — Jordan Raanan

New York Giants: Edge Azeez Ojulari

The New York Giants need a boost to their pass rush this offseason. But the team didn’t add much in free agency and passed on doing so in this year’s first round. Fortunately, Georgia’s Azeez Ojulari fell to the 50th overall pick, where the Giants snatched him up.

The New York Post’s Paul Schwartz envisions him as an immediate pass-rushing specialist and possible starter based on the little seen so far.

Middle linebacker Blake Martinez certainly gushed about his new teammate.

“He’s a freaky looking player,” Martinez told reporters of Ojulari. “Just watching him today, he made some great plays out there in practice, showed some athleticism, things like that. Once again, it’s OTAs, so you’ve got to wait until we put the pads on, things like that. So far I think he’s done really well.”
