Eric Pinkins???

sameolgee-MEN : 3/19/2017 5:24 pm
Do you think, he's going to be the front runner for the Will spot in camp or atleast given a chance to win the Will spot?? Has to be some reason why we haven't brought Robinson back in the fold yet...He shouldn't be that expensive.
I don't think that Pinkins has a chance at first on the depth chart

at the WILL. I wouldn't even bet on him making the team. Casillas is the starter there unless we draft a WILL in Rd. 1.
He's currently listed as the #3 strong saftey

BTW, has anyone noticed how thin they are at safety? If Landon Collins goes down with an injury, they'd be in a world of hurt. Everyone else at safety is either unknown quantity, injury-prone, or not very good.

Has rare combination of size, speed, and strength. Just hasn't translated to the football field. A real longshot.

Ishaq Williams will be one of the more interesting players in training camp. The fact that he didn't play in a game since 2013 and still ended up on the active roster last year was a very big surprise. He has a lot of athletic ability and hopefully he will put it all together and become a player at LB.
Williams is listed on Giants.com

as a defensive end.
I like the underdogs as much as the next guy.  
Klaatu : 3/19/2017 7:06 pm : link
But unless the Giants keep five Safeties or they get decimated, again, at that position, I don't see Pinkins making the final 53 let alone starting anywhere on the defense.

As for Ishaq Williams, right now he's the backup SAM. Kennard is hardly a model of durability so that's a pretty good place to be for Williams. At 6-4, 253, he could conceivably get some snaps at DE depending on how he progresses and how the roster shakes out over the summer. In no way, shape or form is he a WILL.

My bad. You are absolutely right about Ishaq being the SAM
The question on Pinkins  
DavidinBMNY : 3/19/2017 7:57 pm : link
Is if he displaces Herzlich on the roster. He seemed like a good special teamer, similar to the role Herzlich plays.

Herzlich is still unsigned I believe.

Has been hurt and playing several different positions due to his physical skills he needs to learn and produce when given a chance to play. I don't think he lacks for anything physically to play either OLB or safety just not sure what position he will be playing going into camp.
Pinkins and Herzlich

both got called for block in the back on the Beckham punt return that would have been a TD in the CLE game, right?

He's an interesting developmental guy though. 6'3'' and pretty fast. We'll see if he makes the roster...
