The Giants signed fourth-round selection Andre Williams and fifth-rounder Nat Berhe on Friday.
After losing Hakeem Nicks to the Colts in free agency, the Giants needed another threat a wide receiver. Well, they've got one: LSU's Odell Beckham Jr.
The New York Giants selected Boston College running back Andre Williams and San Diego State safety Nat Berhe on the final day of the NFL draft on Saturday.
Former Boston College running back Andre Williams burst onto the scene last season, becoming a Heisman Trophy finalist. Now, he's hoping he impressed NFL scouts with a faster 40-yard dash than he had last month at the scouting combine.
The game was billed as a matchup between two of the nation's top running backs — Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey and Boston College's Andre Williams. But the duel between AP All-America first team selections was one-sided.
B.J. Denker threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns, Ka'Deem Carey rushed for 169 yards and two touchdowns and Arizona had an easy time Tuesday in beating Boston College 42-19 in the Advocare V100 Bowl.
This is it, the final go-round for the BCS.

Boston College tailback Andre Williams, the nation's leading rusher, was injured Saturday in the third quarter against Syracuse.
Boston College's Andre Williams wasn't regarded among the top running backs in the Atlantic Coast Conference, let alone the nation, when the season started.
With the score tied at 26, Eagles senior Nate Freese was called upon to kick a 52-yard field goal. He missed — for the first time all year. But Maryland coach Randy Edsall requested a timeout an instant before the kick. The second try went right through the uprights as time expired.
"The draft has now come and gone," said Williams, who led the nation in rushing last year for Boston College with 2,177 yards, but dropped to the fourth round, where the Giants were overjoyed to get him. "I'm just glad I ended up here. I grew up in New Jersey and live in Pennsylvania, so this is like coming back home."
"I can't say how the coaches are going to use the three-headed monster," Williams said. "Each running back brings special things to the table. I'm just excited for the chance. I think I'm coming in with a clean slate and I have to prove myself."
