Bubble players, late-round dsaft picks in this group
As we continue to roll through what are admittedly highly subjective New York Giants roster rankings we have arrived at Nos. 60-51. Here, you will find a mix of late-round draft choices and returning or experienced players who have to be considered “bubble” players when it comes to their chances of making the 53-man roster.
Here is the list:
Let’s talk about some of the veterans. I put Tomlinson at 60, with Garrett Dickerson previously at 61. Maybe the only difference being that Tomlinson has been a good special teams player during his time in the NFL, and can even long snap in an emergency.
Hilliman is so far down the list because I’m not sure at all of his chances of making the 53. With Dion Lewis, Wayne Gallman, and Javon Leake to contend with Hilliman might be headed back to the practice squad.
You’ll notice McIntosh at 51. With five defensive tackles clearly ahead of him — Dexter Lawrence, Leonard Williams, Dalvin Tomlinson, B.J. Hill, Austin Johnson — his roster spot is clearly in jeopardy.
