Madre Harper will have to earn a roster spot this year
The New York Giants are now loaded in the secondary after signing Adoree Jackson in free agency and then drafting both Aaron Robinson and Rodarius Williams.
Despite adding three new cornerbacks, it looks like second-year cornerback Madre Harper is looking to prove himself worthy of a roster spot this year. Jordan Raanan of ESPN says he’s “opened some eyes this spring.”
The second-year cornerback opened some eyes this spring. He came in bulked-up and in great shape, and took advantage of a mostly vacant defensive backfield during OTAs when most of the Giants’ cornerbacks didn’t attend. That created an opportunity Harper took advantage of this spring. After being signed off the Raiders’ practice squad early last season, Harper is one to watch this year. He has the size and skill set this coaching staff will find ways to use.
The 23 year-old Harper is heading into his second season with the Giants after going undrafted in 2020 out of Southern Illinois. He played in nine games as a rookie and recorded four tackles.
I would imagine that the Giants will keep 5-6 cornerbacks on their roster. Of course Jackson, Robinson and Bradberry are locks. So there are 2-3 open spots. WIth how well Darnay Holmes played as a rookie, he is certainly a front-runner to make their 53-man roster as well as well.
