The 2021 NFL Draft is officially closed. Now, it’s time for teams — including the Giants — to sign players who weren’t taken.
The annual event we all were waiting for has finally concluded. The 2021 NFL Draft came and went, with the Giants choosing six players (including stud wide receiver Kadarius Toney in the first round).
Dave Gettleman, Joe Judge, and the rest of the Giants brass have put in tremendous amounts of work to make sure they could improve the roster as much as possible over the last few days — but the work isn’t done just yet.
Now, it’s time for Big Blue to sign players who didn’t find teams during the three-day draft.
Which players are headed to East Rutherford as undrafted free agents?

Brett Heggie played and started at the center position in each of Florida’s 12 games this past season. The agreement comes after the Giants didn’t address the offensive line during the draft.
