Giants Sign Sixth-Round CB Corey Ballentine

     

The New York Giants announced Thursday that they’ve signed sixth-round CB Corey Ballentine to a four-year contract. 

This leaves just four unsigned draft picks from the Giants’ 2019 class including:

Pick Round Player Pos. College Note
6. 1. Daniel Jones QB Duke  
17. 1. Dexter Lawrence DT Clemson  
30. 1. Deandre Baker CB Georgia  
95. 3. Oshane Ximines LB Old Dominion  
108. 4. Julian Love DB Notre Dame Signed
143. 5. Ryan Connelly LB Wisconsin Signed
171. 5. Darius Slayton WR Auburn Signed
180. 6. Corey Ballentine DB Washington  
232. 7. George Asafo-Adjei OT Kentucky Signed
245. 7. Chris Slayton DT Syracuse Signed

Ballentine was involved in a shooting a day after the draft in which he suffered non-life threatening. Tragically, Ballentine’s friend and teammate Dwane Simmons was killed in the incident.

Ballentine, 5’11/196, was taken in the sixth round of this year’s draft by the Giants. According to OverTheCap.com, he receives a four-year, $2,705,592 contract that includes a $185,592 signing bonus.

During his final year at Washburn, Ballentine recorded 50 tackles, two forced fumbles, three interceptions, four pass defenses, and three blocked kicks.
