Giants select Daniel Bellinger in fourth round


There was a lot of speculation that the Giants would come to a tight end on Day 2 of the NFL Draft. The second and third rounds came and went without a tight end for the Giants, but they filled that need on Saturday when they selected San Diego State’s Daniel Bellinger early in the fourth round.

It’s a position of need for the Giants. They’re out of Evan Engram (signed with the Jaguars) and Kyle Rudolph and need to rebuild that area. Free agency signings — Ricky Seals-Jones and Jordan Akins — have added players with NFL experience but not much pedigree.

Bellinger was a three-year starter in college and caught 31 passes for 357 yards and two touchdowns in 2021.

New head coach Brian Daboll said Friday how much he uses tight ends this season depends on who he has available on the roster, which is how he has operated as the Bills’ offensive coordinator over the past four last years.

“There were times last year when we played with five receivers,” Daboll said. “There were times when we played with three tight ends, sometimes four tight ends.

“I think when you set up an offense you try to build it around the strengths of the players you have. And if it’s a receiver group, it’s a receiver group. If it’s a tight end, it’s a tight end. There were games last year where we went to the game with an active tight end. I think probably the last five or six weeks of the season.
