We will keep this page updated with the latest undrafted free agent signings for the New York Giants:

Xavier Grimble, TE, USC: A 6-foot-4, 257-pound tight end, he was a highly touted recruit who simply never lived up to the hype. CBS Sports’ Rob Rang puts it best, “Like the well-built (and well-traveled) [Kellen] Davis, Grimble looks better walking off the bus than he does on tape.”

Kerry Wynn, DE, Richmond: Wynn joins former teammate Cooper Taylor on the Giants defense. Definitely a work in progress but he has good size (6-foot-5, 266 pounds) and may be versatile enough to play linebacker in certain situations.

Kelcy Quarles, DT, South Carolina: Per NJ.com’s Jordan Raanan, he’s “Aaron Donald-lite.” Not quite as athletic, but he is powerful and excels against both the run and pass. [Twitter]

Emmanuel Dieke, DE, Georgia Tech: He’s coming off a shoulder injury, but that shouldn’t affect the 6-foot-6, 270-pound defensive end. He had 28 tackles and one sack this season for the Yellow Jackets. [Twitter]

Dan Fox, LB, Notre Dame: He recorded 63 tackles in nine starts this past season. He has prototypical size for a middle linebacker in Perry Fewell’s defense (6-foot-3, 242 pounds) and is good enough in pass coverage, having picked off two passes in 2013. [Twitter]

Eathyn Manumaleuna, DT, Utah: The Giants’ heavy focus on defensive players with their UDFAs continues here. He’s older than NFL teams will prefer at 25 years old, but that’s due to a medical redshirt year and a Mormon mission trip.

Justin Anderson, LB, UL Lafayette: Little-known linebacker from Louisiana Lafayete. At 6-foot-2, 220 pounds, he may be better off with a position change to safety. [Twitter]

C.J. Barnett, S, Ohio State: An aggressive safety who excels against the run. Makes great reads and has great instincts to diagnose a play in front of him and react accordingly. [Twitter]

Thomas Gordon, S, Michigan: A talented, average-sized safety who started 11 games for the Wolverines in 2013.

Jordan Stanton, DT, James Madison: A 6-foot-3, 275-pound defensive tackle who may be better suited with a shift to end, his quickness and fluidity may help him be a quality 3-technique defensive lineman. [Twitter]
