Highlights: The gem of the New York Giants' undrafted free-agent crop is Cruz, but he hasn't played since tearing his knee in Week 6 of the 2014 season. So the best of the bunch currently contributing is Jenkins, who was signed undrafted by the Packers out of Central Michigan in 2003. The veteran has started at defensive end and defensive tackle and has three of the Giants' 15 sacks.
Donnell looked like a promising tight end last year, but he hasn't developed this season the way the Giants hoped; he's now injured and possibly out for the rest of the year. Donnell's replacement, Stony Brook's Will Tye, has 14 catches for 200 yards over the past three games.
Whitlock was a fun story earlier this year, when he was mixing in defensive tackle snaps among his fullback and special-teams duties, but the Giants have moved away from that.
Orleans Darkwa often looks like the best of the muddled running back bunch, but he hasn't had much of a chance to show what he can do. Uani' Unga filled in as a capable starter at middle linebacker earlier in the year, Mark Herzlich is a longtime special-teams helper, Jonathan Casillas has also helped on teams and Brad Wing has been a strong replacement for Steve Weatherford at punter.
