The New York Giants made three selections in the 2016 draft from the fourth and fifth round. The three players they selected were B.J. Goodson n from Clemson, Paul Perkins from UCLA.. General manager Jerry Reese had a press conference to discuss the draft picks and how they would fit in. When he spoke about the players individually and what they bring, Reese broke down what exactly he thought the players brought to the organization.
“The one thing we like about him (B.J Goodson) is that he is a football player. He’s a tackling machine, lots of tackles.”
Perkins was said to be an “all-around player that will play on all of the core teams.” As far as Adams, Jerry thought that “he can stretch the seam; can stretch the defense down the seam.”
Reese said that he felt that the organization got the best players they could get in the draft and felt proudly about that. Reporters asked about Perkins being referred to as a poor man’s Tiki Barber to which Reese responded “I’m not sure about that, we think that he’s a really good football player.” The Giants still have roster spots that they are currently working to fill up and will likely sign about 12 undrafted free agents complete their initial roster.
