New York Giants July Scouting Report
Here is the Giants update for July after the beginning of training camp earlier this week:
QB Eli Manning will be on a pitch count during training camp as the team is setting him up for the long haul and a playoff push. He has a ton of publicized weapons at his disposal. He will need to stay healthy and upright. The health has never been an issue for the iron man but the offensive line needs to protect him. Rookie QB Davis Webb has looked great in minicamp and is set up to be Eli’s heir apparent.
The runningback corps looks set with RB Paul Perkins, RB Shane Vereen, RB Orleans Darkwa and rookie RB Wayne Gallman. They might keep a fullback depending on the roster composition. This will be a pass first offense, make no mistake about it.
WR Odell Beckham Jr, WR Brandon Marshall and WR Sterling Shepard are set as the starters. It is likely the team will only keep 5 receivers so WR Dwayne Harris and WR Tavarres King will take the other spots.
The tight end position has a ton of competition. TE Rhett Ellison, rookis 1st round TE Evan Engram and 2nd year TE Jerrell Adams should have roster spots locked up. Thee G-Men might keep 5 tight ends in total…we shall see.
The defense looks fantastic with obvious strength on the defensive line and secondary. The linebacking corps should be solid but clearly isn’t the focal point of the defense. More to see in training camp regarding the backers.
That’s it for now.
More to come in August with preseason game news….End.
