New York Giants camp starts Tuesday for rookies, and finally, all of their rookies are in the fold.

Less than 24 hours before camp opens, the Giants have agreed to terms with second-round pick Wan’Dale Robinson and fourth-round pick Dane Belton, their last two unsigned draft choices, and both are expected to sign their rookie deals and be in camp Tuesday.

Robinson was an interesting pick in the second round given his similar skill set to Kadarius Toney in an already-crowded receiver room, but head coach Brian Daboll praised Robinson during OTAs.

“We throw a lot at him. And he can handle it. He’s smart,” Daboll said. “That was part of the evaluation process, in terms of getting ready for the draft with the position coaches and the coordinators, of really trying to teach these guys as much as we can in that process to see what they can grasp and how smart they are. We place a high premium on intelligent players, and he’s certainly one of them.”

Belton, meanwhile, could be a contributor as soon as Week 1 at the safety position, as the Giants have no one on the current roster behind Xavier McKinney and Julian Love who have taken an NFL snap in the middle of the defensive backfield.
