The USFL season will be winding down the next few weeks and that means many of their players could find themselves in NFL training camps.
So, with that in mind, which player or player could the New York Giants be eyeing? According to Bleacher Report’s Alex Ballentine, Philadelphia Stars cornerback Channing Stribling deserves a look.
Stribling has been a ball hawk for the Stars, leading the league in interceptions with seven. The former Michigan Wolverine has shown a knack for baiting quarterbacks into throwing his way and aggressively breaking on the ball.
Stribling might have needed the experience and development that he’s received while playing in various leagues. He isn’t an elite athlete for the position, as evidenced by the 4.6-second 40-yard dash he ran at the 2017 NFL combine.
Stribling’s instincts and ball skills give him a shot to contribute, though. At 6’1″, he has the size some teams covet at the cornerback position. He would do well with a team that relies heavily on zone coverage, which would allow him to keep things in front of him.
Stribling went undrafted out of Michigan in 2017 and bounced around the several NFL teams’ practice squads before making the rounds in the AAF, CFL and XFL before landing in the USFL with Philadelphia.
He has the size the Giants need at corner and at this point, beggars can’t be choosey. Stribling will get a call from and NFL team this summer and it wouldn’t hurt to kick the tires here.
