Observations from Friday’s Giants coaching camp session.
Higher protected than sorry
They referred to as it a Blue-White scrimmage Friday evening at MetLife Stadium however there was no stay tackling allowed by the Giants’ first and second groups. That was a superb transfer by first-year head coach Brian Daboll. Generally scrimmages can get overheated, with gamers overanxious to hit somebody. Lowering the danger of damage was the best way to go.
The primary cross Daniel Jones threw within the crew interval ought to have been become a pick-six by Adoree’ Jackson. It received solely a bit higher after that for Jones, as he had hassle finding open targets and was underneath an excessive amount of strain and was compelled to tuck it and run too usually.
Caught my eyes
On a third-and-8, defensive coordinator Wink Martindale had rookie LB Kayvon Thibodeaux drop in protection on a cross from Jones to rookie Wan’Dale Robinson for 28 yards. Have a sense that won’t be the norm this season.
Thibodeaux all summer time has proven an explosive burst as a cross rusher and he drew a number of holding penalties — one on LT Andrew Thomas — within the scrimmage.
Rookie OL Marcus McKethan, a fifth-round choose from North Carolina, went down whereas cross blocking and needed to be carted off the sphere.
It has been a tough go of it for brand spanking new TE Ricky Seals-Jones, who missed a sixth straight observe.
WR David Sills V labored on the facet, as did newly acquired DB Nate Meadors. CB Rodarius Williams and WR Robert Foster additionally didn’t observe. Adoree’ Jackson appeared to cramp up throughout an prolonged drive.
