2017 NFL Draft Prospect Profile: Corey Clement, RB, Wisconsin

2017 NFL Draft Prospect Profile: Corey Clement, RB, Wisconsin

Is the running back from Wisconsin the right replacement for Rashad Jennings? Where the 2017 NFL draft is deep, it is very deep. Several position groups not only have top-flight talent, but they have a lot of it, and talent throughout their depth chart. They also have players with skill-sets for every scheme and need, and running back is no different. The draft is deep with scat-backs, all-purpose backs, and power backs from the top to the bottom. It’s commonly held that the New York Giants are (or at least should be) in the market for a power back to compliment Paul Perkins. As it so...

5 running backs Giants could take in mid-rounds of NFL Draft

5 running backs Giants could take in mid-rounds of NFL Draft

The New York Giants bolstered their roster this offseason, having addressed several team needs at positions like the wide receiver and offensive line. However, many more holes need filling before training camp officially starts in July. Related:Giants want to add a physical, power running back One of those areas is at the running back position which depleted due to the release of Rashad Jennings. At the moment, Paul Perkins will be the featured back with Shane Vereen and the re-signed Orleans Darkwa backing him up if the Giants don’t make a move. There are still free agent options like...

Giants want to add a physical, power running back: report

At the onset of free agency, the New York Giants released veteran running back Rashad Jennings and have done very little to replace him. They re-signed Orleans Darkwa and opted to keep Shane Vereen, pairing that duo with sophomore back Paul Perkins. Related:Paul Perkins has golden opportunity to take over Giants backfield From a sheer numbers perspective, they need more depth at the position. And from an on-field perspective, they’re clearly lacking a power back capable of converting in third-and-short situations, as well as goal-to-go situation. Like the fans and experts, the Giants...

2017 NFL Draft Prospect Profile: Marlon Mack, RB, South Florida

2017 NFL Draft Prospect Profile: Marlon Mack, RB, South Florida

Could South Florida’s Marlon Mack be the mid-round running back for the Giants? One of the benefits (for the teams, anyway) of having a draft class as deep as the 2017 running back class is that potential gems have a way of slipping through the cracks. One of those could be South Florida’s Marlon Mack. While the New York Giants certainly seem to like 2016 draftee Paul Perkins, by parting ways with veteran running back Rashad Jennings, they likely have opened a vacancy that could be filled by a rookie running back. Mack is versatile, athletic, and highly productive in college. Mack...

Orleans Darkwa won’t be back with Giants, per report

ESPN says Giants won’t tender restricted free agent The re-construction (or, de-construction at the present time) of the New York Giants’ running game appears to be continuing. ESPN is reporting that the Giants will not tender a contract offer to restrict free agent running back Orleans Darkwa, making him a free agent when the signing period begins Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET. The Giants let veteran running back Rashad Jennings go earlier this offseason. Bobby Rainey is also a free agent and is not likely to return. The only backs remaining who carried the ball for the Giants last season...

Giants' Paul Perkins could be a fantasy gem in 2017

Giants' Paul Perkins could be a fantasy gem in 2017

When the New York Giants selected running back Paul Perkins in Round 5 of the 2016 NFL Draft, some projected him to take over as the team’s starter by mid-season. Related:Paul Perkins has golden opportunity to take over Giants backfield That projection didn’t pan out, but it also wasn’t far off. Perkins did see his offensive snap increase due to inconsistent production and injuries to other running backs, but he was never a full-fledged starter. In 2017, that’s almost guaranteed to change now that the Giants have released veteran running back Rashad Jennings. And with Perkins...
