It has been a week since the 2014 NFL Draft, and teams across the league are getting ready to see their draft choices in action during rookie mini-camps that will be going for most NFL teams these next few weeks. The New York Giants though, will be one team that will not be holding rookie mini-camps this offseason and will instead get all their rookie players working out with the rest of their veterans on the team. Besides that, the Giants will also be trying to sign their newest draft choices and have begun the process by signing to of their pick from their 2014 draft class.
Williams, a running back from Boston College, is expected to compete for time in the Giants' backfield with David Wilson and free agent signing Rashad Jennings. In his senior year at Boston College, Williams ran for over 2,000 yards and 18 touchdowns. With those numbers, Williams earned first team All-ACC honors, and was named a heisman finalist. Williams also was a unanimous first team All-American and won the Doak Walker Award for the best running back the college football.
Behre, the Giants fifth round pick, will help the G-Men on the defensive side of the ball at the safety position. A three year starter for San Diego St, Behre was a team captain and led the Aztec in tackles during his junior and senior seasons. During his time as a Aztec, Behre played safety and a little bit at linebacker as well. The San Diego St. standout will help the Giants out in defending the opponents running game and could become a backup for strong safety Antrel Rolle.
With both Behre and Williams signed, the Giants also signed undrafted rookie free agent Xavier Grimble, a tight end out of USC. During his time at USC, Grimble earned honorable mentioned All-Pac-12 honor and after signing with the G-Men, joins fellow USC teammate linebacker Devon Kennard who was the Giants other 5th round selection in this years draft.
