The Giants have a bevy of young corners fighting to make the team. That includes 243rd overall pick, Chris Williamson, out of Minnesota. Williamson is considered a potential nickel corner who can slide into the slot position. With DeAndre Baker dealing with serious legal troubles, he could be thrust into a competition on the outside.

The Minnesota product is a feisty defender who can play zone and press at the line of scrimmage. He has solid size and long arms to complement his frame, but his technique is where things drop off significantly.

If Williamson plans to survive the NFL and make the team, he must get better at tackling. He is simply a product of poor fundamentals, and with new head coach Joe Judge prioritizing details, Williamson should be at an advantage to develop nicely.

Physically, he has great size and length, making him a high upside player. However, if he cannot develop his fundamentals quickly, he could be left behind or placed on the practice squad. The Giants kept all of their fourth-round picks in the draft, looking to add competition at multiple positions.
