Giants sign TE Kellen Davis

The Giants have signed tight end Kellen Davis (Pro Football Talk).

John Fennelly, Lead Writer

Another day, another free agent signing by the Giants. Davis, 28, is a monster of a man (6’7″, 265) who will provide a veteran presence for the Giants at TE mainly as a blocker and a red zone option.

The Bears’ fifth-round selection out of Michigan State in the 2008 NFL Draft, Davis played five seasons in Chicago before catching on with the Seahawks last year.

This signing is in no way an indication the Giants will not be adding a TE through the draft. He is not the pass-catching type of TE they need for their new offense.

Davis is the sixth player from a team that played in SB XLVIII to be signed by the Giants this offseason, joining former Seahawk teammate Walter Thurmond and ex-Broncos J.D. Walton, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Robert Ayers and Trindon Holliday.

Free agent WR Travis Harvey signed by Giants

The Giants inked WR Travis Harvey, who has no NFL experience, to a contract. From the Giants:

Harvey, 6-2 and 183 pounds, was signed as a rookie free agent by the Tennessee Titans last year. He was released in training camp. In two seasons at Florida A&M, Harvey played in 12 games with 10 starts and totaled 66 receptions for 818 yards and seven touchdowns. Most of that production was in his senior year (64 catches, 808 yards, all seven scores). He did not play football as a freshman or sophomore.

He's 6' 7" 265...BIG dude. I wonder if this means they would pass on Troy Niklas now in the 2nd round if he's available to them. Niklas is about the same size as Davis and like Davis is more known for blocking than receiving. Interesting....

@Skookaloop In your mock selections, I don't see a OT or a TE. Do you honestly believe that Reese will be happy with Davis, Robinson and Donnell at the TE position??? Also, you show CB's drafted in rounds 5 & 6????The Giants signed 4 CB's + one of their own during FA period. Why would they use 2 picks out of 7 to get CB's when they need to strengthen the OT spot???? I like your first 3 picks, although it would have been nice to see a TE and/or an OT somewhere in there. As for your 4th round pick of Williams, he is good, but I would select Will Clarke (DE) instead if available and then in the 5th round select Isaiah Crowell (RB). So I just switched positions and rounds.

I don't see them drafting a RB in the 4th round. TOO MANY other needs right NOW. Maybe in FIFTH ROUND where they have 2 selections open to THEM.  I do think DONALD is a distinct possibility for G MEN at #12...so I might AGREE with you there...

Giants have drafted DTs about as often a they draft LBs in round 1. No way Donald is the pick.

@Peter Sinapi lets assume that you are right and the Giants select Ebron with the 12th pick in round 1. That would mean they can go in a couple of directions in rounds 2 and 3. Round 2 they can select possibly Morgan Moses (OT) or Gabe Jackson (OG) or Cyril Richardson (OG) for the OL help or they can go with Stephan Tuitt (DE). In round 3, they can go with Antonio Richardson (OT) or Travis Swanson (center) or even Daniel McCullers (DT). If Reese does go TE in round 1, these are the positions and players I can see him going after. I hope you're wrong because there is something about Ebron that I don't like. After reading many scouting reports on him, the talent is there, however; many question his work ethic and overall mental toughness. Ebron kind of reminds me of ex jet TE Johnny Mitchell.

Sure but it's nots happening. Feel free to remind me in May that I was right.

My point was now they won't need a blocking type TE. They need a receiver type.
