In a recent news release, New York Giants officials announced that they have re-signed special teams standout Nate Ebner to the 53-man roster. The 32-year-old Ebner previously signed with the Giants in 2020 and served as one of the team's captains during his first year on the squad. He went into free agency status while pursuing a spot on the United States National Rugby Team, but wasn't able to compete due to an undisclosed ailment.
Over nine seasons in the NFL, Ebner has played in 143 NFL games, including 16 postseason outings. He has chalked up 67 solo tackles alongside 36 assists. Prior to joining the Giants, the 6-foot, 215-pound Ebner played for eight seasons with the New England Patriots and appeared in four Super Bowls.
Sawyer Petrick is a New York City, New York-based screenwriter who most recently worked at Whole Picture Films, where he wrote for a web series and was consulted for the feature film The Speech. He graduated from The New School with a bachelor's degree in film in 2018. Outside of his professional pursuits, Sawyer Petrick is an avid fan of the National Football League's (NFL) New York Giants.
The NFL began counting down the top 100 players in the league for the 2021 season on August 15, and a pair of Giants players cracked the first quarter of the list as defensive end Leonard Williams and cornerback James Bradberry ranked 84th and 74th overall, respectively. An alumnus of the University of Southern California, Williams was drafted by the New York Jets in 2015 and was traded to the Giants in 2019. He had a career-best 11.5 quarterback sacks through 16 games last season.
Bradberry, meanwhile, is a former second-round pick of the Carolina Panthers. In his first season with the Giants in 2020, the Arkansas State alumnus recorded 54 tackles, three interceptions, and two forced fumbles. He also had a career-best 18 defended passes and made the Pro Bowl for the first time in his career. Both Williams and Bradberry made the NFL's Top 100 list for the first time this year.
Having earned a bachelor's degree in film from The New School, Sawyer Petrick is a New York City, New York-based screenwriter who wrote an episode of the web series The Look and was consulted during the writing of the script for the feature film The Speech.

The 2021 NFL Draft is scheduled to begin April 29, and the Giants hold the 11th overall selection. Below is a look at three players the Giants could draft with that pick:
ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. has the Giants selecting Kyle Pitts in his mock draft. The 6-foot-6 tight end recorded 12 touchdowns and averaged an impressive 17.9 yards per reception in 2020. He would be a great complement to Evan Engram.
NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah, meanwhile, believes the Giants could select Alabama wide receiver Jaylen Waddle. Quarterback Daniel Jones needs more weapons on offense and Waddle could be one of the solutions. Through three seasons at Alabama, he accumulated 1,999 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns.
The Giants could also select Waddle's teammate DeVonta Smith. While there are questions about his ability to succeed against larger defensive backs in the NFL, Smith is a skilled route runner who became only the fourth wide receiver to win the Heisman Trophy in 2020. Both the Bleacher Report and NFL.com writer Chad Reuter have the Giants selecting Smith in their mock drafts.
