Rookie WR Alex Wesley, who had been working on the side, was the only player I didnt spot today. Jabrill Peppers and Brittan Golden participated after sitting out last week.
Engram, Solder, Remmers, Pierre, Dungey, Chandler, Hamilton, Moss and Carlock remain sidelined.

Offense only worked with wind at its back and almost all short passes....Jones had only two long throws: both sailed high - he will figure out the wind over time...Star of the day - rookie TE RJ Conrad, who catches eveeything thrown at him. #Giants
It's early but

Wouldn't it be great  
mittenedman : 6/11/2019 11:32 am : link
if the Giants found a mid-round steal at WR (aka Stephon Diggs)?

Especially after trading OBJ.

The more I hear, the more he reminds me of Ron Dixon.
Its good to see Dungey back at practice

Also Slayton and Conrad showing consistency. Im looking forward to training camp to see how these two perform because both have flashed.

A Ron Dixon type is just what the offense needs. Remember back to 2002 when the Giants offense was struggling until Ike Hilliard was injured. Then Dixon stepped into the starting lineup and became the deep threat the offense sorely needed. After that the offense took off. Hopefully Coleman or Slayton will step up and assume that role. The true test will come in training camp and the preseason.

Shurmur says QB Daniel Jones has done a good job of getting up to speed with everything he needs to do at the line of scrimmage. I think were going to play the best player. Shurmur adds Eli is getting ready to have an outstanding year as the starter.

Shurmur's comments  
Nine-Tails : 6/11/2019 12:05 pm : link
are very interesting. It appears Jones has really done well, hence the praise by Shurmur and Shula. If Eli continues his normal preseason routine and Jones continues to progress, things will get very interesting.

Conrad wasn't an offensive threat at UK  
Platos : 6/11/2019 12:30 pm : link
looks like he was used primarily for blocking. the most catches he had in a season was 30.

could be a different story in the NFL with a capable QB though.

That's what I thought too, but his pass receiving highlights aren't bad at all.

He was always going to be a Day 3 pick, even before the heart issue. He's not particularly big, or particularly fast or athletic, and it's not like he was featured prominently in UK's offense. Still, the consensus was that he was a good blocker and a reliable receiver. Worth developing. Decent amount of "upside." Ceiling as a #2 TE.

Comparable players such as Alize' Mack, Tommy Sweeney, Caleb Wilson, and Isaac Nauta didn't get drafted until the 7th Round, and it's likely that if Conrad didn't have such a nightmare of a pre-draft process (a shoulder injury early at East-West practice, then the heart issue), that's where he would have been drafted, too.

Not many practice notes from today. Wasn't easy to see the action and it didn't appear to be a particularly sharp session. Few depth chart notes: Rookies Darius Slayton and CJ Conrad got some first-team reps. Arrow pointing up for both.

He was a highly rated player coming out of high school, I just don't think Kentucky had any pure passers that did him many favors. I assume there must be something medical, because the talent is there.

I would caution against over-reading. This is how PS would also play it if Eli were to get injured in pre-season.
