Found October 18, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:
PLAYERS: Reuben Randle
TEAMS: New York Giants

When the Giants drafted LSU rookie WR Rueben Randle they didn’t intend on him barely contributing. They brought him in to take out other players on the roster such as Ramses Barden and Domenik Hixon, but he has failed to do so. This week Randle didn’t play an offensive snap in the Week 6 win over the 49ers.Randle has settled back in as New York’s No. 5 receiver, behind Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz, Domenik Hixon, and Ramses Barden. Randle is brimming with talent, but he will need multiple injuries to occur to move up the depth chart.
Everyone was super high on Randle but he has bust written all over him. This is what Mike Mayock said before the season, but he cannot even get past players who have been on the roster for a long time. It could be a long career for the 2nd round pick.
“Randle is going to have a great opportunity. He’s blessed with talent, and he goes to a great organization.”
-Mike Mayock former NFL safety and current NFL Network analyst

Giants’ David Wilson: ‘I’ll be in the Hall of Fame’

Now that David Wilson is out of the Giants’ doghouse, he’s focusing on the bigger picture.

Osi Umenyiora No Longer Referring to Robert Griffin III as 'Bob,' Now Calling Rookie Phenom 'Sir Robert'

Robert Griffin III has apparently earned the respect of Osi Umenyiora.
