The New York Giants worked out several players on Tuesday, per Dan Duggan of The Athletic. Undrafted receiver Michael Jefferson came in for a visit, while offensive lineman Jordan Roos and cornerbacks Thomas Graham and Chris Jackson worked out for the team.

Jefferson was projected as a sixth-round pick in this year’s draft by @dpbrugler but he went undrafted after suffering…
Jefferson is the most interesting name of the bunch. Dane Brugler, The Athletic’s draft guru, projected him as a sixth-round pick before an unfortunate injury from a car accident caused him to go undrafted. Jefferson racked up 51 receptions, 810 receiving yards, and seven touchdowns as a fifth-year senior at Louisiana.
Roos started three games at guard for the Titans last season. He allowed 10 pressures, including 5 quarterback hits, and posted a 61.4 Pro Football Focus run-blocking grade and a 24.6 pass-blocking grade. Other than that, he has been mostly a bench or practice squad player throughout his career.
Graham and Jackson, meanwhile, have seen various bits of game action from 2021-23. Graham posted a 71.3 coverage grade on 30 coverage snaps in one 2022 game.
Overall, these appear to be workouts for practice squad depth or perhaps with an eye toward reserve/futures contracts for next season.
