Giants sign rookie guard Eric Herman

The Giants have signed seventh-round pick Eric Herman, an offensive guard from Ohio. The move was disclosed in the NFL’s Wednesday transaction report.

Should he make the Giants’ roster, Herman (6-4, 320) would likely backup either left guard Kevin Boothe or right guard Chris Snee.

“He likes contact,” Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross said of Herman after the draft, according to the club. “He plays hard. Not the most gifted athlete, but he’s just a tough guy and he’s big. A big, smart, tough guy and we think he’ll bring a physical presence to the line.”

Herman (pictured at right with fellow rookie Justin Pugh) started 51 consecutive games for the Bobcats, according to school data. Ohio credited him with 128 pancake blocks in 2012, and he earned second-team All-Mid-American Conference honors for his play at right guard.

    Do we really need articles for 7th rounders signing? How about a summary of signings every day or 2 for anyone after the 1st or 2nd rounds?

    It’s the month of May, so yes, we do need an article for every signing. There isn’t a ton of football news, you know, besides crappy Eagles QBs talking about how they don’t suck, don’t fumble, etc.

    Was that an attempt to be funny?
