Sash had 13 interceptions in three years, leaving after his junior year for the NFL. He could fit right into the rotation since veteran Deon Grant is a free agent and may not be back.

“He’s a smart player, he can line up the entire defense, tell everybody what they should do,” Reese said. “You love those kinds of guys.”

Williams led South Florida with 71 tackles, including 11 for losses. He also had 2 1/2 sacks and one interception.

“A lot of people didn’t know him, but our scouts did a good job of digging this guy out,” Reese said. “We think he can give us a boost on special teams, while he is learning how to play on this level.”

Scott led the Terrapins with 708 yards rushing, and a 5.8 yard average. He also caught 14 passes for 170 yards and three touchdowns. He gained 1,133 yards as a sophomore, and then saw his production slip the last two years.

“We took a flyer on the guy because he is big and fast,” Reese said, alluding to his 4.34 speed in the 40-yard dash. “We hope this guy develops into a Willie Parker, one of those kinds of things.”

Parker was an undrafted free agent who developed into a Pro Bowl back for the Steelers. But Scott will have plenty of competition with Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jacobs and D.J. Ware on the roster.

Reese refused to discuss what needs remain for the Giants once football gets back to normal and free agency starts.
