The New York Giants selected Kentucky cornerback Andru ‘Dru’ Phillips in the third round of this year’s NFL draft to fill a major vacancy on their defense. That vacancy is on the outside at boundary cornerback, across from last year’s top pick, Deonte Banks. One problem, though. Phillips will not be assuming that role. At the Giants’ organized team activities (OTAs) this spring, that role is being filled by third-year defensive back Cor’Dale Flott, a 6-foot-2, 177-pound enigma of a player. Flott is long and lean but his game relies on his aggressiveness and intelligence. The Giants are moving ..read more

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has been identified as one of the NFL’s 32 ‘bounce-back’ candidates for the 2024 season. In a recent piece for Pro Football Focus, Bradley locker believes Jones, who is rehabbing from multiple injuries that limited his 2023 season to just six starts, has a big opportunity to ‘right his wrongs’ this fall with Big Blue. There might not be a more polarizing player in the league than Jones and his four-year, $160 million contract. Suffering a neck injury and an ACL tear before Week 9 last year didn’t help his case. Jones’ 63.0 overall grade in 2023 was the ..read more

All 32 teams ranked by their average Relative Athletic Score: Where do Giants land?

The New York Giants, under the regime of general manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll, have sought to improve the overall speed, strength, and athleticism of their roster. With few exceptions, they’ve brought in players who rank highly on the Relative Athletic Score (RAS) scale. That was especially true during the 2024 NFL draft when they selected players who weren’t just among the top of the class, but a few who were near the top of the all-time scale. Tight end Theo Johnson is the prime example of that, ranking ninth overall at his position since RAS tracking began in 1987. But ho ..read more

Entering the offseason, the top priority facing the New York Giants was repairing their offensive line, just as it’s been for just about the last decade. While the Giants did not select any offensive linemen in this year’s draft, that is likely due to general manager Joe Schoen being satisfied with the players he signed in free agency. The Giants’ most notable offensive line signings were Jon Runyan Jr. and Jermaine Eluemunor. Eluemunor, who is very excited to be a Giant, was recently named the Giants’ best-kept secret by Bleacher Report. New York Giants: OL Jermaine Eluemunor With other offe ..read more

The New York Giants knew exactly what they were getting when they traded for Carolina Panthers linebacker Brian Burns, a two-time Pro Bowler who has never recorded less than 7.5 sacks in a season in his five-year NFL career. What they also knew was how Burns would fit in with his new team. He is a leader in both design and reality. “First, I would say he’s a great teammate, practices the way you want a pro to practice,” head coach Brian Daboll told reporters on Thursday. “Particularly a player of his type caliber. I think he’s done a good job with the outside linebackers and his room of being ..read more

The New York Giants will need to trim their roster from 90 players to 53 players by the end of training camp, but none of those jobs will be determined during organized team activities (OTAs). While meeting with reporters on Thursday, head coach Brian Daboll said he’s treating the voluntary program like a “teaching camp” and roster spots won’t be won or lost based on performance. “It’s spring ball,” Daboll said. “We’ve talked about this I think the last two years. This is really a teaching camp. “There’s no roster spots that are going to be made based on what they do here. This is more learnin ..read more

Secondary help named Giants' biggest remaining offseason priority

The New York Giants have seen a lot of shuffling in their defensive backfield over the last few years. After spending a 2023 first-round pick on cornerback Deonte Banks and a 2024 second-round pick on safety Tyler Nubin, the secondary is extremely youthful. Still, Kevin Patra of NFL Media believes that bolstering the young secondary is the Giants’ top remaining priority this offseason. Top priority: Bolster the young secondary. Depending on how training camp shakes out, the Giants could wind up starting second-round safety Tyler Nubin and third-round nickel back Dru Phillips. With second-year ..read more

Giants make notable change to defensive hierarchy

The New York Giants made a quiet and under-the-radar change to their defensive hierarchy this offseason, adding to the role of defensive line coach Andre Patterson. The veteran assistant won’t just oversee Dexter Lawrence and the other D-linemen, but he’ll also be working with the team’s outside linebackers as defensive coordinator Shane Bowen looks to generate a more organic pass rush with his front seven. “I’m working with those outside linebackers on pass rush,” Patterson told reporters on Thursday. “I’ve spent a lot of time with Charlie (Bullen) on the way I see things as rushers and thing ..read more

Giants QB Drew Lock looks 'rough' in OTAs

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones, who is recovering from a torn ACL that cost him eight games last season, has been throwing with “accuracy and velocity” thus far in organized team activities (OTAs). For those hoping backup quarterback Drew Lock supplants Jones, you may want to avert your eyes. While Jones has impressed so far this offseason, Lock has not. The veteran is not only wading rough waters as he adjusts to a new offensive system, but he was wildly inaccurate during Thursday’s open practice.
