Harris was also the Giants’ leading kickoff

The Giants’ outstanding season has helped four players receive one of the NFL’s most cherished individual honors.

Wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr., cornerback Janoris Jenkins, safety Landon Collins and special teamer were today named to the NFC Pro Bowl team. Beckham will play in the game for the third time in as many seasons, while it’s the first selection for Jenkins, Collins and Harris.

The Giants will send two defensive backs to the Pro Bowl for the first time since 1963, when Erich Barnes and Dick Lynch were selected.

Wide receiver/return specialist Dwayne Harris elite jersey just completed his first season with the Giants, and his fifth in the NFL. Harris began his career with the Dallas Cowboys, for whom he had 33 receptions in four seasons. This season, he had 36 catches. Harris was also the Giants’ leading kickoff and punt returner. He earned a spot in their record book by becoming the first player in the franchise’s 91-year history to score touchdowns on a reception, a kickoff return, and a punt return in the same season. He is the first player since Seattle’s Nate Burleson to have four receiving touchdowns, plus scores on both a punt and kickoff return.Giants #8 Hunter Pence White 1989 Turn Back The Clock Stitched MLB Jersey

When Dwayne Harris signed last offseason, the former Cowboy said he came to the Giants because they looked at him as a receiver. He proved them right.

In 2015, Harris, while maintaining his reputation as one of the best special teamers in the game, recorded career highs in receptions (36), receiving yards (396) and touchdown receptions (four). In his four previous seasons in Dallas combined, he had 33 catches for 418 yards and three touchdowns.

Now he’s back for another round with the Giants, who open the 2016 campaign at Dallas.

My takeaway from the combine might seem obvious, but it underlines the inexact science that is talent evaluation. A group of people trained as professional evaluators looking at the same players doing the same exact things can come away with completely different opinions about those players. Where one scout might see a flaw easily overcome with their other skills, another might think that deficiency is a death knell for the player’s NFL career. The same person one scout might think is a first-round pick, another might think they are only third-round worthy.

The 14 young men and women recognized at this year’s graduation had a special guest – Giants’ linebacker .

“When I was told about this opportunity to come and speak to this graduating class at Hackensack University Medical Center, I said, ‘wait a second, they’re getting everybody together who is graduating high school and got treatments here?’” Herzlich said.

He added: “I said, ‘that is the coolest thing I’ve ever heard.’ They’re current patients, they’re former patients, and they’re every single type of person here together that all share that badge of honor.”

The ceremony, which brought together families, friends and other guest speakers, hits near to Herzlich’s heart. In 2009 during his junior year at Boston College, Herzlich was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer.

First-round draft pick Ereck Flowers began the rookie camp at left tackle, where the Giants’ top brass said he could compete in the future. Meanwhile, Bobby Hart, who rounded out the draft class as the sixth and final member, started at right guard. Below are the offensive line configurations (left to right) seen today. Keep in mind, they will be fluid throughout camp and beyond.

The Giants today signed three players to their practice squad: quarterback Keith Wenning, running back , and safety Ryan Murphy.

Wenning, 6-3 and 225 pounds, was a sixth-round draft choice by the Baltimore Ravens in 2014, from Ball State. He spent that season on the Ravens’ practice squad. After his release in June 2015, Wenning was signed by the Cincinnati Bengals, with whom he did stints on both the practice squad and active roster. He has not appeared in a regular-season game. In the 2016 preseason, Wenning completed 21 of 43 passes for 212 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. He was waived by Cincinnati on Sept. 3.
