    Victor Cruz is a good example of untapped potential that shined when given the opportunity.

    It goes to show you how important the draft is. Good teams build out of free agency but the best build from the draft. Lets go out there and get some solid players tonight Giants!

    Cruz was a free agent, remember? No-one drafted him.

    True enough, but the point is still valid.

    True. It makes you wonder how many Cruzes and Arian Fosters simply never get a chance. It's amazing how players like that can slip under the radar.

    And not just undrafted free agents either. Look at the ones that were picked in the 6th or 7th rounds and yet play like first or second round picks. Ahmad Bradshaw, Tom Brady, etc...

    The answer is very very few and to suggest otherwise really diminishes what Cruz is all about.

    Cruz didn't hit the lottery and land on the Giants. He worked hard impressed at his workouts and was asked to join the team.

    Sure there are guys who aren't highly touted but if they're really meant to play in the NFL they'll prove it.

    Burier: Yes.
