They retained Janoris Jenkins and added Jabrill Peppers and Antoine Bethea while also hoping for Sam Beal and Grant Haley to step up. However, Jenkins is not likely in the Giants plans for long, and the team doesn’t have much behind Jenkins and Grant at the cornerback position. And while this is generally regarded as a weak draft for cornerback, there are some who are promising. Georgia CB Deandre Baker was regarded as one of the very best prospects in the draft class at the start of the 2018 season. He took a step back from a stellar 2017 season, but remains a good cornerback prospect for the right defense.MeasurablesProsGood feet and hips. Easy change of direction.Long arms help break up passes.Quick to close when in off or zone coverage. Hard hitter in space who separates the receiver from the ball.Good football IQ, tends to put himself where the ball is going.Experienced in both man and zone coverage. Competitive player who seems to have a short memory.ConsUnspectacular athlete for the position. Teams looking for speed could be disappointed.Inconsistent tackler in the run game. Size might be an issue for some teams. Prospect VideoWhat They’re Saying - Lance Zierlein ( - Scouting Report) Does He Fit The Giants?If the GIants are looking for a cornerback to replace Janoris Jenkins and create a young tandem with Sam Beal, then Baker could be a good one to look at. He isn’t as highly regarded as he was entering the season, but that was coming off of a 2017 season in which he allowed just 5 receptions on 19 targets in 15 games (holding opposing quarterbacks to a completion percentage of 26.3 percent). Shutting opposing offenses down to that extent is not sustainable and regression was going to happen, and this season was seen as something of a disappointment.On the field, Baker shows quick feet and fluid hips which let him cover receivers tightly , at times appearing to run their routes for them. Georgia played a fairly diverse coverage scheme, asking Baker to line up in both man and zone coverages, and he played well in both. In man coverage his feet and hips saw him through, while in zone his length, closing burst, and football IQ helped him stand out. He might be a better zone corner than man at the next level, if only because his long speed could be an issue dealing with faster receivers, but he should be able to hold his own in both. It is possible that Baker could be one of the first two cornerbacks selected in the draft, but an uninspiring position group as a whole and the depth chart seems muddied. It is certainly possible that his lack of elite measurables will drop him to the second day. Eric Reid called his return to the NFL on Sunday "bittersweet," saying it still hurts that his friend Colin Kaepernick has been "robbed" of his dream to play again in the NFL.While the safety is back in the league playing for the Panthers, Kaepernick remains a free agent. Kaepernick filed a grievance against the league in October of 2017 alleging teams have conspired to keep him out of the league because of his decision to protest racial and social injustice by kneeling during the national anthem."Any athlete in the NFL knows how hard you have to work to get here — and his career has been cut short Kareem Martin Jersey ," Reid said following Carolina's 33-31 win over the New York Giants.Reid said he is hesitant to express optimism that his signing will open the door for Kaepernick, but added "we'll see what happens."Reid, who was signed as a free agent by the Panthers on Sept. 27, continued his tradition of kneeling during the anthem before Sunday's game.None of Reid's new Carolina teammates joined him or stood near him at midfield. He became the first Panthers player ever to kneel during the national anthem, and did so under first-year owner David Tepper.With a large American flag in the middle of the field, Reid went to his right knee as the "The Star-Spangled Banner" was sung by Marc Martel. After the game Reid wore a shirt that read "Know your rights" and listed 10 points.Reid said last week he wasn't sure if he would kneel before the national anthem. He ultimately decided to kneel, saying "I've always told myself when the time comes to stop kneeling, I will stop. But that time has not come."Reid added that more needs to be done to prevent racial and social injustice."We have made baby steps , but people try to give crumbs but present them as cakes," Reid said.Kaepernick tweeted his support of Reid and other protesters on Sunday."My Brother @E_Reid35, with @KSTiLLS and @iThinkIsee12 Womens Robert Thomas Jersey , continue to take a knee against systemic oppression. They are unwavering in their conviction! #ImWithReid"Reid made his return to the NFL four months after filing a grievance against the NFL alleging teams colluded against signing him during free agency after he knelt alongside Kaepernick, his former teammate in San Francisco.Reid said last week he was "still considering other ways" of protesting and raising awareness, adding that he was "still evaluating the scope of our country and will make that decision later."However, Reid made it clear he would continue to fight against racial and social injustice along with Kaepernick. Reid, who is African-American, said he will continue to "stand up for my people.""Nothing will ever change unless you talk about it," Reid said last week. "So we're going to continue to talk about it. We're going to continue to hold America to the standards that it says on paper — that we're all created equal. Because it's not that way right now. But we're going to keep pushing toward that."Reid's new teammates, including wide receiver Torrey Smith, a member of the Players Coalition, said this past week that potential protests would not be a distraction for the Panthers.Smith said "no one cares" if he kneels during the national anthem.
