2016 NFL Draft Card:NY Giants

Congrats to Sterling Shepard and Paul Perkins on being drafted by the NY Giants! Go Gmen!
2nd Round:

5th Round:
In what was an interesting Giants draft as many expected Oline and especially DLine to be the focus, it seems the Giants had other plans.
In the first round they drafted Eli Apple who none expected to go that high. 2nd round came a new offensive weapon in Sterling Shepard to replace Rueben Randle and help with taking the pressure off from Odell Beckham in-case Victor Cruz isn't fully healthy. 3rd round brought a much needed safety in Darian Thompson. 4th round they went LB in BJ Goodson a position they have needed filled for years. 5th round they found speedster Paul Perkins (which is a bit surprising with 4 RB's already on the roster but they do draft best players and not needs most of the time) and in the 6th round they landed TE Jerell Adams. Not one offensive or defensive lineman.

I do think they filled some needs on a team needing lots of help especially on defense. As a collector, I have a lot of needs to fill now that the draft is done. The only rookie cards I have of any of these guys I posted above and none are technically rookies. I will put most of my focus on Perkins and Shepard, but will see if I can pick some up or at least one of each of the other guys.

How about you guys? Which rookies are you focused on collecting from your team? Or in general?
