The Giants have now come to terms with five of their eight draft picks, inking OT Adam Koets and RB…
Michael Matthews – No, blocking tight ends aren't all that sexy and they're never going to make their way onto a TGI cover. But that's a tremendous need for the Giants and if the 6-4, 270-pound Georgia Tech monster can prove he can block, he's going to find himself getting plenty of reps as a rookie. We all know Jeremy Shockey and Kevin Boss can catch, but if the Giants had a tight end that could block with any regularity they wouldn't have had to use Rich Seubert, a guard, in that role last season. The window is open and Matthews is likely the man to step right through it.
Travonti Johnson – Another rookie free agent that is likely to catch some eyes during camp. He's got great size (6-2, 190) and has already shown an innate ability to get his hands on the ball. The Giants like how he plays the game – his attitude and his moxie. It won't be too long before you're looking down at your training camp roster asking yourself ‘who is number 24?' It's Travonti Johnson, that's who. And you heard it here first.
Anthony Mix – When you're 6-5 and can catch the ball consistently you've got a good shot. Now that Mix has had a year in the Giants offensive system and knows what he's doing, it wouldn't be surprising at all to see the Auburn product light it up in Albany. He's looked tremendous during the offseason. No mater what the WR numbers look like, 6-5 guys that can catch and run usually find a way to stick around.
In the next week, TGI will look at several key topics Giants fans should keep their eyes on once training camp opens on Saturday.
