With their first pick in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft, No. 112 overall, the New York Giants selected Daniel Bellinger, a tight end from San Diego State.
The Giants chose Bellinger over more widely-known tight ends like Isaiah Likely of Coastal Carolina, Charlie Kolar of Iowa State and Jake Ferguson of Wisconsin.
In his draft guide, Dane Brugler of The Athletic, said:
Even though he lacks instincts as a route-runner to easily uncover, Bellinger is an above average athlete for his size with natural body control and hands to cleanly catch the football. As a blocker, he is balanced and strong-minded to execute his assignments, but he lacks people-moving power in the run game. Overall, Bellinger has unimpressive receiving production and doesn’t always play up to his timed speed, but he has natural ball skills and a detailed approach as a blocker. With his toughness and versatility, he projects as a backup Y tight end with upside.
The Giants will be back on the clock momentarily as they have pick No. 114, obtained from the Atlanta Falcons in a Friday night trade down from No. 38 to No. 43 in Round 2.
