As of May 10, the New York Giants have signed four of their draft picks from the 2013 NFL Draft and will likely sign at least two out of the remaining three.

So far, the team has signed defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins, defensive end Damontre Moore, safety Cooper Taylor and running back Michael Cox. In addition to these draft picks, the team also has six undrafted rookie free agents on its roster in cornerback Charles James, running back Jeremy Wright, safety Alonzo Tweedy, linebackers Charleus Dieuseul and Etienne Sabino, and wide receiver Marcus Davis.

The drafted players who have yet to sign are offensive lineman Justin Pugh, quarterback Ryan Nassib, and guard Eric Herman. Regardless of Pugh’s previous Philadelphia Eagle fanhood and Jerry Reese‘s hope that Nassib never plays, the two Syracuse men will very likely sign with the team and go on to have productive careers, hopefully with the Giants.

Nassib in particular will be interesting to watch. Although David Carr is Eli Manning‘s backup, Nassib is expected to make the roster, assuming he performs well during the preseason. The Giants don’t typically take three quarterbacks on the roster which highlights Nassib as a young talent that will be developed as a backup and perhaps eventually a starter.

In addition to these players, there is also a chance that linebacker Aaron Curry will sign with the team. Curry had a workout on Thursday and returned on Friday as the Giants began rookie camp. He could be a good addition to the team as despite injuries he has several years of NFL experience and won’t be asking for too big of a contract.
