As the Giants rookies get set for their minicamp this week, they have chosen their numbers for this season.
Getting first dibs is New York's top pick in the 2019 NFL Draft in Daniel Jones, who chose No. 8. The two other first rounders in DT Dexter Lawrence and CB DeAndre Baker chose No. 97 and No. 35 respectively.
Here are the numbers for the rest of the rookies...
- OLB Oshane Ximines: No. 53
- CB Julian Love: No. 37
- LB Ryan Connelly: No. 57
- WR Darius Slayton: No. 86
- CB Corey Ballentine: No. 25
- OL George Asafo-Adjei: No. 78
- DT Chris Slayton: No. 99
The rookie minicamp will be Friday and Saturday this week. It will include all players but Ballentine, who the Giants are allowing to stay with his family and friends as they grieve the tragic death of his friend, Dwane Simmons, who was shot in the same incident that put Ballentine in the hospital. He was shot in the glute, and has since been released from the hospital.
