Two of the Giants’ 2014 draft picks have agreed to sign elsewhere in the opening stages of free agency, leaving only one selection from that class left on the roster: Odell Beckham Jr.
According to multiple reports on Tuesday, center Weston Richburg, a second-round pick of the Giants who missed most of 2017 on injured reserve with a concussion, will sign a five-year deal with the 49ers on Wednesday, while linebacker Devon Kennard, originally a fifth-round pick, will sign a three-year, $18.75 million deal with the Lions.
The Giants had little interest in retaining Richburg and moderate interest in Kennard.
Their departures — and the assumption that free-agent guard Justin Pugh and safety Nat Berhe won’t be back — will leave the Giants without any players on their roster from the drafts from 2011 through 2014. They also have only two players left from the 2015 draft: Ereck Flowers and Landon Collins.
The Giants selected 35 players in the drafts from 2011 to 2015 and only three remain.
