    If the Giants want to add another cornerback

They still have Janoris Jenkins in the fold and are expecting Sam Beal to emerge as a starter across from him. They will be hoping that Tony Lippett can emerge as a viable third corner and that Grant Haley builds on his rookie season in his second year. However, Jenkins can’t be long for the Giants, and beyond him they are hoping for a pair of young, injured players to pan out at an important position.So yes George Asafo-Adjei NFL Jersey , cornerback should definitely be in the conversation throughout the draft. If the Giants are looking for a big corner with the upside to play press-man coverage and versatility to play in both man and zone coverage, they could look at Amani Oruwariye out of Penn State.MeasurablesProsExcellent size and frame for the position.Good, balanced footwork. Shows nice awareness in zone coverage. Capable of disrupting routes in man coverage.Disruptive at the catch point.Capable of playing in multiple coverage schemesConsMakes the occasional business decision. Not an elite athlete. Red-shirt senior but only one year of starting experience.Prospect VideoWhat They’re Saying - Lance Zierlein - NFL.com Scouting ReportDoes He Fit The Giants?Oruwariye does fit what James Bettcher likes to do in coverage. With his size and strength, Oruwariye has the ability to be disruptive early in plays when in press-man coverage. He wasn’t in press-man often in college, but when he was, he showed a solid jam to throw off timing and releases. He is also capable in zone coverage, particularly when he can position himself over the play drive back down toward the ball. Between his awareness and clean “click and close” footwork, Oruwariye can be legitimately explosive when driving on the ball and routinely broke up plays at the catch point by separating the receiver from the football. Teams will have to be careful in how they match him up. For all that Penn State has been producing elite athletes of late, Oruwariye is not among them. He is a good athlete George Asafo-Adjei NFL Draft , particularly for a 6-foot-1 5/8, 205-pound cornerback, but if a receiver is able to win early, he will struggle to recover. But perhaps the most annoying part of his game are the occasional “business decisions” he makes. There are instances when Oruwariye ratchets up his intensity and can lay devastating hits, but other times he will try to avoid contact and get by with arm tackles. That is something he will have to clean up at the next level.Oruwariye will have to answer questions about why he wasn’t able to secure a starting job before his last year at Penn State, but players develop at different rates. It could be that he is finally starting to blossom and whichever team drafts him might be getting him as he begins to ascend and reach his potential. Giants swap one big contract for another"The New York Giants are trading defensive end Olivier Vernon to the Cleveland Browns. The return is offensive guard Kevin Zeitler.The Giants and Browns also traded mid-round picks, the Giants sending Cleveland pick No. 132, a fourth-rounder, in exchange for pick No. 155 George Asafo-Adjei Buffalo Bills Jersey , a fifth-rounder.The Giants confirmed the trade just minutes after the initial reports on Twitter.Just Thursday, there had been reports that the Giants were “leaning towards keeping” Vernon. There had also been national reports that the Browns were looking to move Zeitler, who turned 30 today.The trade, basically, amounts to a swap of salaries.Vernon was entering the fourth year of a five-year, $85 million contract. He carries a cap hit of $19.5 million in 2019. Zeitler is in the third year of a five-year, $60 million contract he signed with the Browns. He carries what appears to be a $12.4 million cap hit in 2019, per Over The Cap’s contract database.Jason Fitzgerald of Over The Cap reports that once all the contract permutations are factored in, the Giants end up saving about $1.5 million. Fitzgerald explained the cap ramifications this way:“Zeitler’s salary and cap will be $10M. All the prorated stays with the Browns. they move Vernons $19.5M cap off the books but add on $8M of dead money. So $19.5-10-8= $1.5M.”Zeitler is a seven-year veteran who has started 103 of the 104 NFL games he has played in Infant Christopher Slayton Jersey , all at right guard. His acquisition leaves the status of free agent guard Jamon Brown, who played eight games for the Giants after being claimed on waivers last season, unclear.Brown does have limited right tackle experience and could stick with the Giants as a swing man if he can’t find any starting offers. Big Blue View will continue trying to find out more as to whether or not the Giants have any plans to retain Brown.With Vernon gone, the Giants will likely be looking in free agency and the draft for help on the edge. The Giants also moved on from veteran edge rusher Connor Barwin this offseason. The draft is filled with talented edge players. On the free agent market, a player like Trey Flowers of the New England Patriots could be in play. There have also been reports that the Kansas City Chiefs would be willing to trade Dee Ford after using the franchise tag on him.
