Three DBs impressed me on Day 1 of #Giants rookie camp: Grant Haley, Sean Chandler and Aaron Davis.

Also, Adam Bisnowaty was at right guard today participating in rookie minicamp for second year in a row. Permanent move to interior could be in offing in order for him to stick

Three notes from rookie camp: Guice is a hustler, first in line for every drill, Gruden said he was first one with playbook open in the meeting room and a ball of fire. If he’s at all productive he will be a big-time fan favorite. 1/3

Trey Quinn put a couple of DBs on the ground with his route running. Great ability to stop and cut. He did drop on wide open over the middle. 2/3

Apke didn’t look natural in coverage, but it usually didn’t matter because of his makeup speed. Christian is huge but he does need both upper- and lower-body strength. 3/3
