CB Rod Babers taken in 4th Round

The Giants selected CB Roderick Babers from Texas with their 4th round pick, the 123rd overall pick.

Babers (5'-8 1/2", 185 lbs) is quick, fluid, and changes direction well. Sound mechanics and shows good footwork. Lacks height and loses the jump ball to taller receivers.

Babers is one of 14 semifinalists for the Jim Thorpe Award, presented to the country's top defensive back. Arguably, no defender has come up bigger than Babers has as of late. The senior almost single-handedly pulled out the game against Oklahoma State when he stopped a critical two-point conversion in the 17-15 win plus intercepted a QB Josh Fields' pass as the Cowboys were driving in the final minutes for a game-winning field goal.
