He has a few things to clean up, like the balls he drops in between 2 players. BUT, he more than makes up for them with bigger chunk plays. Coaching can fix that, as will his instincts. This kid is a #1 in the making and I am stoked we found him.
from pretty early on. Some of the Giants' own media people (Schmelk, Feagles etc on that daily call in show) mentioned Slayton's intelligence and humor some time ago. Apparently he's stood out from early on in certain personality traits.
He's got the mental chops to be a #1 IMO.
PROPS to Cowhurd for some of those questions. He steered the interview in a way to allow Slayton to show his best self, and provide real insight about the NFL too. Like the questions about the experienced CBs who got "into Slayton's head" much to his own surprise.
Agreed 100%. Because Colin set a welcoming platform for Slayton, some nuggets came out that CC didn't even ask about. For instance, Slayton's comment about his preference for the deep ball, after describing how Jones laid a perfect bomb out to him the first day of rookie camp.
Slayton is a good and determined RAC guy, but it seems he'd rather catch the ball well downfield. He obviously believes in his own speed.
It's nice to be able to do both run after catch and run deep routes
so that the defensive back doesn't know how to cover you. He can grow in rac, by learning from Tate. That's his specialty.
