Following the NFL Draft, some may have wondered when the New York Giants will get to work with their rookies in-person. These last two offseasons, of course, have been odd because of COVID-19. The Giants players already announced earlier in the offseason that they’d skip voluntary workouts, as permitted by the CBA. However, it looks like the in-person minicamp workouts scheduled for the newly drafted rookies aren’t going to befall the same fate.

Tom Rock from Newsday has reported that the team is set to have rookie minicamp in person. Fans will only have to wait a couple weeks to see the new players in pads as the minicamp is set to happen from the 14th to the 16th of this month.

The minicamp will also, of course, include any players the Giants have picked up as undrafted free agents. Right now the Giants haven’t brought in many players from the undrafted pool, but it appears the team is looking into options on the offensive line after they passed on taking an offensive lineman with any of their picks.

The Giants have reportedly signed two offensive lineman as undrafted free agents, specifically center Brett Heggie from Florida and Jake Burton from Baylor, who played multiple positions during his time there.

The other free agent signing for the Giants appears to be Raymond Johnson III, a defensive end from Georgia Southern that will join the other two additions to the defensive front that the Giants made through drafting Azeez Ojulari and Elerson Smith, both outside linebackers.
