The New York Giants announced their 3rd day draft selections from the home of Make-A-Wish New Jersey, in Monroe on Saturday! It was an exciting day filled with games, music, food, and fun. And the Giants 4th through 6th round draft selections were broadcast from the balcony of the Make-A-Wish castle.

One Make-A-Wish teen on Saturday, 14-year-old Jared, was able to meet his favorite Giants’ player: Running Back Saquon Barkley, who won Offensive Rookie of the Year! Saquon said that Jared will also get to spend an exciting weekend with the team this fall.

The celebration also included special visits from New York Giants’ Tight End Evan Engram, Offensive Tackle Nate Solder, Tackle Chad Wheeler, and Offensive Guard Will Hernandez.

Since 1983, Make-A-Wish New Jersey has created life-changing wishes for over 10,000 children in the Garden State. And Saturday was just another day helping kids with critical illnesses look past their limitations and experience love and joy.
