Report: Giants showing ‘heavy interest’ in FSU RB Trey Benson

The New York Giants are in the market for a running back after the defection of Saquon Barkley to Philadelphia in free agency last month.

One player they appear to be interested in the 2024 NFL draft is Florida State’s Trey Benson.

Benson, at 6-foot and 216 pounds, has the desired size/speed combination that teams look for in an every down back.

The Giants have a decent stable of running backs after signing Devin Singleton in free agency last month to pair with Eric Gray and Gary Brightwell but need another player to build a solid committee at running back.

“Benson is my RB1 in the 2024 NFL Draft, worthy of early-to-mid Day 2 draft capital,” writes Ian Cummings of Pro Football Network.

“His size-speed profile and his baseline vision and footwork allow for schematic flexibility across gap and zone looks, and his visible potential as a receiver serves as a bonus. As a projected volume back, Benson brings plenty to like. He has a strong, compact build at around 6’0″, 200 pounds, with a powerful lower body.”
