New York Giants 2022 Training Camp Roster Preview: S Julian Love

Giants safety Julian Love has been one of the most underrated members of the defense since arriving in 2019. This year, he will likely have his most significant role yet.


Coming out of Notre Dame in 2019, defensive back Julian Love was one of the most pro-ready prospects in the NFL Draft. Many believed Love could step in and contribute immediately, either as a safety or working out of the slot.

Love has always had fairly high expectations, so that was nothing new. Coming out of Nazareth Academy in 2015, Love was a two-way star before attending Notre Dame. After his senior season in 2018, Love was named a Consensus All-American.

At the 2019 NFL Combine, Love tested as an above-average athlete, posting a 4.54 40-yard dash and 14 reps on the bench press. Love’s 6.72 three-cone was a significant number; however, that showed off an exceptional change of direction.

Love would go on to be selected by the Giants in the fourth round of the NFL Draft with the 108th overall pick, considerably later than many draft analysts expected him to get drafted.

Defensive coordinator Wink Martindale will be Love’s second defensive coordinator of his NFL career after Patrick Graham went to the Raiders this past offseason. With Jabrill Peppers and Logan Ryan no longer in the picture, Love looks like he could be in line for his role on the defense.
