    Giants sign defensive tackle Oren Wilson, waive Martin Parker

    LINK

    Excerpt: "The Giants signed two of the three defensive tackles they worked out on Tuesday. One of them was Carlton Powell, the other was former Michigan State and Akron lineman Oren Wilson.

    The team waived defensive tackle Martin Parker, who suffered a herniated disc in the preseason opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars." Read more...

    Anyone know any thing about these guys? I'm not familiar with either. They just a stop gap until cuts?

    I don't know much about these guys but just pulled up Oren Wilson and here is what I got from the Sports Illustrated Draft Guide:


    Biography: Michigan State transfer who totaled 38 tackles/4.5 tackles for loss/3.5 sacks during his only season on the field at Akron. Started as a sophomore and junior at Michigan State.

    Positives: Small yet quick defensive lineman who chases hard to make plays. Gets leverage on opponents, keeps his pads low to the ground and wedges through blocks to get behind the line of scrimmage. Tough to move off the ball, quickly changes direction and displays the ability to move laterally then get down the line of scrimmage or outside the box to make plays. Possesses good first-step quickness, stays with the action and keeps his feet moving on contact. Works his hands well to protect himself.

    Negatives: Lacks bulk on the inside and easily controlled by a single blocker. Lacks top pursuit speed.

    Analysis: Wilson was a productive college player and has the skills necessary to be used as a three-technique lineman at the next level.

    Projection: FA

    Just bodies to fill a space is all
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    wouldn't be surprised if they didn't survive first round of cuts...

    Just bodies to fill a space is all. I really don't think both put together would even rival the potential that just Rogers alone had
