Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Safety Dane Belton is called “biggest gem” of draft class:
The nickel safety position is a more coveted role in today’s pass-happy NFL. Getting such an impactful talent in Belton during the middle rounds is a valuable asset for Giants defensive coordinator Wink Martindale.
Super Bowls 42 and 46 could come back to haunt Buccaneers QB Tom Brady in his new Netflix series, "Greatest Roasts of All Time."
BGN reacts to the signing of the former Giant.
The Giants’ grade goes unchanged:
R1 (20): WR Kadarius Toney, Florida
R2 (50): EDGE Azeez Ojulari, Georgia
R3 (71): CB Aaron Robinson, UCF
R4 (116): EDGE Elerson Smith, Northern Iowa
R6 (196): RB Gary Brightwell, Arizona
R6 (201): CB Rodarius Williams, Oklahoma State
Initial Draft Grade: B+
1-year Re-Grade: B+
The trade the Giants executed to get a top-10 pick in this year’s draft has to be factored in here. That netted them Evan Neal, which should quell the sting of passing on Rashawn Slater. From a talent perspective, Toney looked like he could make this class an A-plus when on the field. Unfortunately, he was hurt for most of the year and the new staff is already reportedly shopping him.
