SPOTLIGHT:

Undrafted players make an impact under Coughlin

Posted by Dan Salomone on August 31, 2012 – 9:51 pm

On an individual level, summers in the NFL boil down to one concern: making a roster.

While nothing is guaranteed, a lane toward that end goal opens up for players who are drafted. For others, an invitation to walk on is all they can ask for. Those players enter camp with nothing more than a number and a locker. It’s then up to them to prove their value come autumn.

It is no easy task, but it is possible. From Victor Cruz to Chase Blackburn, undrafted players make rosters every year, and 2012 was no different.

Here’s a look at such players who have made the cut during Tom Coughlin’s era with the New York Giants:

2004

LB Chase Blackburn (Akron)

    some nice players led by Cruz.

    Reside music, dances, and numerous contests are just a
    pattern of the completely different contests you can enter.
    Las Vegas Nevada is a popular city, known for
    the gambling and casinos, as well as the show girls.
    It is a dry heat, however, which I do consider much
    more agreeable than humidity (not to mention it doesn’t
    make my hair look like I’ve just been electrocuted).
