New York Giants: 3 players on the roster to supplement loss of Sam Beal at cornerback

New York Giants, Julian Love

3.) Corey Ballentine

Corey Ballentine is another player who could be given an opportunity at CB2. In 2019, the former Washburn corner struggled to adapt to the NFL. Over 13 games and two starts, he logged up 26 combined tackles, two passes defended, and allowed at 64.3% completion rate and four touchdowns.

Ballentine is a high-upside player with a ton of potential, physically. He has long and lanky arms to pair with being a cornerback but lacks the experience against better talent. If he can develop and progress through training camp, he could be in a place to compete for the open corner spot. However, I still believe he is a year behind the rest, coming from a smaller school and looking way out of place during his rookie campaign.

Nonetheless, it is a fantastic opportunity for him to complete and bring the best out of himself with the New York Giants.
