Training camp for the New York Giants will be used to iron out multiple positions that don’t have an established player present. Most of the position battles will occur in secondary/reserve spots, like at CB2 and WR4.

With DeAndre Baker being placed in the Commissioner’s Exempt list and Sam Beal opting out of the 2020 season, the Giants brought in Ross Cockrell to compete for a starting spot. However, that shouldn’t take away from their youth options in Julian Love, Darnay Holmes, Chris Williamson, and more.

The final wide receiver spot on the roster is expected to go to Corey Coleman, who suffered an ACL tear during last year’s training camp. Coming off another significant injury, the Giants have added plenty of UDFA players to compete alongside Coleman. Ultimately, the final wide receiver spot also has to contribute on special teams, which makes kick returning an influential part of the pending position battle.

Here are four undrafted free agents the New York Giants will look to at WR4:

1.) Binjimen Victor

Victor started for the first time during his senior year in 2019. At 6-foot-4 and 198 pounds, he’s a bit undersized to be a power receiver, but he can utilize his lanky frame and wingspan to act as a security bank blanket on intermediate routes.

Having posted 573 yards and six touchdowns of the 12 games last year, Victor brings over decent production. While I don’t expect him to become a significant player on the Giants in year one, he could act as a solid back and option to supplement injuries. Surprisingly, he has great post-catch abilities and can make defenders miss in the open field.
