The Giants wanted to bring in competition for nickel corners Ray Green, Kato Serwanga and Ralph Brown. So when they were unable to land a CB during the Draft's opening day, it was hardly surprising that Big Blue chose Texas CB Rod Babers with the 123rd overall selection.
The 5-9, 190-pound athlete was a solid three-year starter for the Longhorns. He recorded 131 tackles, four sacks and five interceptions in 47 games. He showed great return skills after his picks, gaining 176 yards for a gaudy 35.2-yard average. He's expected to be a special teams contributor and a situational coverage guy for New York.
