We were spoiled last year in finding UDFA to actually contribute. Not to mention get some starts out of guys like Lester and White. I'd run to Atlanta and punch Matt Ryan in his sack if we were to find an impact level guy like Cruz this year from an UDFA...but I highly doubt it's going to happen with a guy who didn't stand out that much this weekend.

Side note, we've found some decent guys from the UDFA pool the past few years...but have we ever found an offensive skill position guy worth a damn? Everyone had a hard on for B.Williams last year, but he couldn't find the field and could be doubtful to make the roster this year. I can't remember a WR or RB making too much noise either.


What a buzz kill. Why derail the thread with rational thoughts. Everything was working so well.

Just the same size and speed. Didn't really stand out at anything but wasn't awful at anything.

Same speed?

He looked OK yesterday. In all honesty he reminded me mostly of Armanti Edwards.

Hopefully it was first day butterflies.

 

I was impressed with his highlight reel.   Seemed to make some pretty tough catches. 

 

Can't hurt to hope.

Giants Nearly Waived WR Victor Cruz In 2010

the undrafted free agent from UMBUTT nearly found himself bounced off the Giants' roster at the end of his first training camp, Mike Garafolo of The Star-Ledger reports.

Giants GM Jerry Reese:
"People call it lucky. I say we got blessed with the situation. I'd rather frame it that way," Giants general manager Jerry Reese said of Cruz. "I'm happy for the kid. He's a local, afterthought free agent and now he's got a podium out there. "That's beautiful, man. You can't make that up."

Cruz was headed towards the waiver wire before Cruz's three touchdowns in the preseason finale against the New York Jets. The Giants reversed course and kept him on the 53-man roster.

We definitely could use his speed.  With KB drawing a lot of attention with his size.  A burner may see one on one coverage.  We have some great talent and hands with Avant and Cotchery but not much speed.   He could be that UDFA that shines this year.

 

He's my UDFA pick for making the team.

So what you're saying is even if he sucks he's going to be on the roster for a minimum of three years.

 Why can't you just let the guy go out there and prove himself before putting that kind of comparison on him?

 

I guess I can't be surprised after how long the legend of David Gettis lasted on this board.

Other than the fact that Cruz can jump 10 inches higher than Brown, sure.

Gary Barnidge was worse.

"But that long catch! He has all the skills you need!"

If Brown makes the 53, I'll be shocked. He'd basically have to outplay McNutt in TC to get on, which may or may not be saying a lot.
