20 Questions in 20 Days: Undrafted Rookies

Posted Jul 14, 2014

Our 20 questions in 20 days series features Giants.com staff writers answers pressing questions heading into Training Camp

Question 14: Which undrafted rookie has the best chance to make the team?
 
MICHAEL EISEN: Tight end Xavier Grimble. It’s surprising the USC product was not drafted. He was impressive in the spring practices and lined up at times with the first team. He plays a position where the Giants have no stars and no obvious frontrunner to become the starter. With a productive training camp and preseason, that player could be Grimble.
 
JOHN SCHMEELK: Xavier Grimble is the logical choice since the tight end position is so wide open, but I am going to go with linebacker Dan Fox out of Notre Dame instead. He should be an excellent special teamer right off the bat, and he could be a younger version of Mark Herzlich with a little more upside.
