OTA Report

Mike Garafolo has his OTA report from today: It’s tough to get a good read on OTAs because there’s limited contact and no pads, so these practice reports aren’t as telling as what you’d get during training camp. But there were still a few things that stood out on Monday morning, so I figured I’d […]

Roster at 89:

From Vinni DiTrani: The six post-rookie minicamp signings upped the Giants roster total to 89, the maximum they can have at this time. The roster limit is 80, but since none of the nine draft picks have signed, they do not count against the number. A player will have to be cut, however, as each […]

More Morning Practice Notes

Ralph Vacchiano  of the Daily News has his practice report up:  Nicks actually looked pretty good again today, despite the drop. One thing I’ve noticed is that he’s really abused cornerback Stoney Woodson (seventh round) this camp. Every time Nicks runs deep on Woodson, the receiver seems to beat him by about five yards. • […]

Coughlin Speaks

Tom Coughlin spoke to reporters after the third practice of mini-camp (from giants.com) Q: Of the three practices you have had, anybody standing out, anybody surprise you?   A:  I don’t know about surprises.  I think we knew – I think someone asked me about Mo Evans yesterday.  He has done pretty well.  He had […]

Afternoon Practice Report

Mike Garafolo has the afternoon practice report, including news on Travis Beckum’s injury: THE DRAFT PICKS I promised I’d keep an eye on LB Clint Sintim this afternoon and I did. He looked pretty good on his drops, which was interesting because all the scouting reports have suggested he struggles in space and that he’s best at […]

Giants need rookie receivers to catch on quickly:

From Clark Judge of CBSSportsline: The Giants call it their first minicamp for rookies, but who are they kidding? This weekend’s three-day workout is more like an audition for New York’s two most important additions. Would Hakeem Nicks and Ramses Barden please step forward? Nicks is the team’s first-round draft pick; Barden was a third-rounder. […]

Nicks and Barden Impress:

From Vinni DiTrani:  Both high draft picks Hakeem Nicks and Ramses Barden impressed coach Tom Coughlin with their hands in Friday morning’s first rookie minicamp practice.     “They caught the ball, they caught the ball well,” Coughlin said.     “That’s kind of my job description,” said Nicks, the No. 1 draft pick from North Carolina. “Wide receivers […]

Coughlin Speaks About Draft

Here is the transcript from giants.com: Q: A guy like Barden, where he puts up all these numbers against a lower level of competition, how can you project him in the NFL? Is it more difficult?
