Hearing about Kennard....  
Milton : 6/18/2014 12:15 pm : link
...is reminding me of another former 5th round pick, Sam Garnes. He first began getting props in rookie mini-camp and he was the starting safety by the time the season rolled around.
Devon Kennard is playing well so far partly because IMO  
Bobby Epps : 6/18/2014 12:15 pm : link
he's a VERY smart guy and almost certainly picks up his assignment very quickly because of his smarts.

Proof of his smarts: got his college degree in 2012 and then his Master's degree with a 3.23 GPA.

Hoping very much that the Giants got a steal in the 5th Round.

Donnell was open in he seam there. Had a step on Rolle but couldn't haul the pass in. Speed is there, though. #nyg

That's a Nassib to Beckham touchdown. Bowman in coverage. #nyg

Bobby Epps : 6/18/2014 12:37 pm : link
Everett Dawkins DT has good measureables.

The other 3 IMO are kinda slow across the board, in all tests.
Agree Eric

TC would repeat the questions. I can't hear half of them at any of this press conferences. If someone hadn't posted the comment about Moore, I would not have known who TC was talking about, for starters. Anyone have any influence over that? At least get the reporters to speak up or pass a mic around.

I'm guessing JD Walton, because of the mention of "two years ago, before the injury."
The Broncos went to the SB this year  
Bill in UT : 6/18/2014 1:39 pm : link
I wouldn't think he's talking about Walton

Joey in VA : 6/18/2014 1:40 pm : link
Re: Kennard, it depends on formation really. If we roll out a C-3 he can handle the middle, it's a small in the box area and he has the physicality and smarts to patrol it. If we run C-2 he needs to be on the bench or outside, even with a hand in the dirt. He's an in the box player, move him too much out of it and he will be exposed as a coverage liability.

My assumption is that he is the Sintim/Schofield type of player they seem to have a desire for. Big, physical edge run defender with some pass rush who can be used in a variety of ways. He led USC with 9 sacks a year ago, so he's got some pass rush ability.

I think that's why the emphasis on "two years ago, before he got hurt"--as in, in 2012 they were better earlier in the season and then he got hurt and they didn't finish as strong. Admittedly, that's a stretch, but I can't think of who else it might be. Who do you think he was referring to?

DCGiants : 6/18/2014 1:57 pm : link
I thought it might be Walton, too, but not sure.

and all of a sudden our rookie 5th round pick, Kennard, looks real good. Unbelievable.

Spoke with Rueben Randle today. He told me that the coaches would like him to lose a few pounds before training camp.

Patricia Traina ‏@Patricia_Traina 42s
One less read to make on a route. Does that make that much of a difference for the receivers? "Definitely," Randle told me.

Patricia Traina ‏@Patricia_Traina 47s
What's one of the main differences for the receivers in the passing game?

Beckham took some team reps today and even scored a TD, but said he's only running at about 85%. Doesn't want to push it to top speed.

"You can only take so many mental reps," Beckham said.

Beckham said he felt tight early in practice but loosened up towards the end. He was very eager to get on the field.

Beckham said his involvement in team drills has been up to him. He opted to sit out of two-minute today with the hamstring. #nyg

Beckham said having a mother and step-father who were both world-class sprinters helps with the hamstring issues. Has special regiment #nyg

Random observation: DB Zack Bowman has been around the ball a lot in minicamp.

Ebenezer Samuel ‏@ebenezersamuel 57s
Most minor of caution flags on JPP: "I still feel a little something." Says it won't affect him on field tho

Bowman with a whole lot of contact  
Jimmy Googs : 6/18/2014 2:42 pm : link
on that play before he picks off the pass.

I would have thrown the flag...
Googs: Maybe, but that's still a really bad pass by Eli.  
Big Blue Blogger : 6/18/2014 3:46 pm : link
If you're going to miss in the flat, aren't you supposed to miss high and outside?
OBJ with a nice catch.  
Randy in CT : 6/18/2014 3:54 pm : link
And I agree on Bowman--he pushed the receiver down which made the ball seem high. The throw looked good.
Bad pass or not...  
Klaatu : 6/18/2014 3:57 pm : link
Parker still got mugged.
Yep, I agree the pass needs to more outside although  
Jimmy Googs : 6/18/2014 4:54 pm : link
nice catch by Bowman after the shove.

Eli likes to "spread the wealth" as we all know :)
Parker is lucky to be with the Giants  
Jupiter : 6/18/2014 5:20 pm : link
Giants have passed on better players with a lesser criminal background. I hope persistence allows him to get away from his past.
He is lucky to be here. And if he screws up...just this much  
Jimmy Googs : 6/18/2014 5:37 pm : link
he'll be flying a cargo plane full of rubber dog shit out of Hong Kong...

to the Niners offense in his interview today fyi.
Manningham is also the answer to the question....

Who was Coughlin talking about when he said "they were a better team two years ago before he got hurt."
