Defensive lineman Jordon Riley has signed his rookie contract, becoming the fourth member of the Giants' seven-man draft class to do so.
Drafted in the seventh round, Riley began his collegiate career at North Carolina before moving on to Garden City Community College, Nebraska, and Oregon. He spent the 2022 season with the Ducks, for whom he played 13 games and was credited with 21 tackles (seven solo), 1.5 tackles for loss, a half-sack and one pass defensed.
"Big body guy," Schoen said. "It's hard to find these guys. When you get into the seventh round, you are looking for guys that maybe it will be hard to get at different areas. And another guy we spent time with, big run stopper in there, 6-5, 330. He'll compete for a depth role there.
"You walk out to practice and there's this 6-5, 330-pound guy, piques your interest right there. Again, some of these guys in different schemes may not have the production, the tackles, the sacks. But for what Wink (Martindale) looks for in terms of size, length, knock back, he possesses those traits."
RB Eric Gray, CB Tre Hawkins III, and DB Gervarrius Owens became the first three members of the 2023 draft class to sign their rookie contracts on Friday.
