Kevin Boss: Fifth Round (Pick 153), 2007

When Jeremy Shockey was carted off the field with a broken leg, many fans figured that any chances the Giants had of competing in 2007 went with him.? But Kevin Boss, an unproven fifth rounder from Western Oregon, stepped in and immediately did?well, not much.? But with a touchdown in each of the last two games of the regular season, Boss showed glimpses of a player who could replace a pro bowl tight end without much drop off.? It wasn?t until Super Bowl 42 that Boss made what will almost certainly go down as the play of his career.? Late in the third quarter, Boss caught a 19-yard pass from Eli Manning, eluded Rodney Harrison, and rumbled for a momentum swinging 45-yard reception. It was the play of the game, until some other stuff happened.
