• 1 OL: LT Ezeudu, LG Lemieux, C Feliciano, RG Glowinski, RT Neal.
• 2 OL: LT Cunningham, LG Garcia, C Bredeson, RG Revis, RT McKethan.

Ezeudu getting work at LT was definitely eye-catching. No real contact, but second-team OL had a rough day.

• 1D: DL Williams, DL Lawrence, OLB Thibodeaux, OLB Ojulari, ILB Martinez, ILB Crowder, CB Jackson, CB Robinson, CB Holmes, S McKinney, S Love

• 2D: DL Ju. Ellis, DL Moa, OLB Smith, OLB Ximines, ILB Coughlin, ILB McFadden, CB Gilbert, CB Jacquet, CB Flott, S Williams, S Belton

• 3D: DL Holmes, DL Davidson, OLB Fox, OLB Lalos, ILB Brown, ILB Hilliard, CB Canady, CB Evans, CB Dorsey, S Corker, S Black.

Recorded D lineups during install, so some players in red jerseys were replaced in live periods. DL Ellis, OLB Ward, ILB Beavers got work with the 1's.

Notable plays/observations from today:

• Wan'Dale Robinson terrific catch over Aaron Robinson on a deep ball from Daniel Jones in a drill.

• Jones hit Darius Slayton deep over Adoree' Jackson in a team period.

• Lot of reps for rookie TE Daniel Bellinger with the 1's.

Quote:
*Former NFL wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. was present at today's practice, spending time talking to Coach Brian Daboll, DC Wink Martindale and OC Mike Kafka, among others. At one point, Smith was off to the side having a one-on-one chat with Kadarius Toney. Later during individual drills, Smith was giving pointers to a group of wideouts that included Darius Slayton and Richie James. Smith has been with the team the past two days shooting a feature for NFL Network.

*Smith wasn't the only former player sharing some words of wisdom at practice. Former Giants punter Jeff Feagles was on the sidelines speaking at length with punter Jamie Gillan and long snapper Casey Kreiter.

*The first team action came in the form of 7 on 7 drills, where Daniel Jones threw a perfect deep ball to rookie Wan'Dale Robinson, who made a great catch for a huge gain. Later on, Robinson made a nice play to get his feet in on a sideline pass. The Jones-to-Robinson connection continues to grow as the pair spend more time together on the field.

*Safety Jarren Williams recovered well on a deep pass and got his hands on the ball, forcing the incompletion.

*Tight end Daniel Bellinger continues to display tremendous hands. The rookie seems to catch everything thrown in his direction, connecting with Jones twice for first downs during 11 on 11s. He then caught a pass for a nice gain over the middle from Tyrod Taylor.

*Kayvon Thibodeaux was in a red jersey, but Coach Daboll did not seem concerned about it. "I'd say this with the red jersey guys, they are all making progress, taking it day-by-day, but they are all doing a good job of doing the rehab that they need to do, whatever is required of them… It's day-to-day. I'm talking about for everybody. I think the red jersey guys are making progress and hopefully we'll have everybody ready to go."

*Taylor threw a beautiful, deep sideline pass to wide receiver C.J. Board for a significant gain. On the next play, the veteran QB found David Sills on a crossing route for another big gain. Taylor and Board is another pair that has been noticeable throughout OTAs. The two linked up for a few receptions Thursday, including a couple long balls.

*Given the nature of OTAs with the lack of contact, it's tough to gain much insight about the run game. However, Saquon Barkley has shown some great explosiveness during these spring practices. On Thursday, he took a handoff and burst through the hole for a nice gain. Barkley then caught several passes from both Jones and Taylor, gaining a solid chunk of yards on each one.

*Darius Slayton made a beautiful double move, getting open behind the defender for a deep touchdown pass from Jones.

*Not long after Slayton's touchdown, Adoree' Jackson picked off a pass which he returned the other way for a score.

*Alex Bachman made a nice play, catching a deep sideline pass on a great throw from Taylor.

*After two practices with zero turnovers, the defense registered two interceptions on Thursday. The second one came on a bobbled ball at the goal line, which got deflected into the air before Xavier McKinney came down with it and returned it the other way for a pick-six.

*Matt Breida scored a touchdown on a pass near the goal line, catching a five-yard pass from Taylor over the middle for the score.

*Maurice Canady is one of the most recent additions to the team, and on Thursday he made a great play in coverage to break up a pass in the end zone.

*Similar to previous OTA sessions, Coach Daboll had the entire team line up behind the line of scrimmage for the final play of the day. With most of the defensive players making a lot of noise around the 20-yard line, Aaron Robinson broke up a pass on the goal line to close out practice.

TOUCHDOWNS

*Daniel Jones threw two deep touchdowns, one to wide receiver Darius Slayton during a full-team period and another to rookie Wan'Dale Robinson in a drill pitting defensive backs against receivers.

"He wants to be good," Daboll said of Jones today. "He wants to be coached. I'd say he's tough on himself, which is good and bad for a quarterback, too, because you have to be able to move on to the next play rather quickly since you touch the ball on every play. Asks a lot of good questions. He's been out here on the field. He's improved since we've been here."

*Tyrod Taylor found running back Matt Breida for a short touchdown from the red zone. Taylor also broke a long run, zig-zagging his way to a likely score.

TAKEAWAYS

*Following the departure of Pro Bowler James Bradberry, Adoree' Jackson knew he would have to step up at cornerback. He has done so at OTAs, highlighted by a pick-six at practice today.

"What's crazy is before we actually talked something similar about that in the meeting room about the quarterback being under center and watching the moves and what may happen," Jackson said of the play. "Quick game, or if it's play-action, a deeper, developing route. What's crazy is before that play we actually was talking about that in the film room and we come out here actually seeing it. That attests to how do you get better. We always talk about taking the classroom to the field. So I saw it, listened to it, and then you actually see that route, but I listened to it."

*Safety Xavier McKinney also got on the board with an interception. The only defensive back in the NFL last season with at least 90 tackles, 10 passes defensed and five interceptions, McKinney was asked today what he considers his next step following the breakout year. "Take it 10 times forward," he said.

He will look to do so in Wink Martindale's aggressive system.

"I think we're all enjoying it," McKinney said of the new defense. "You know, just so much aggression. It's just giving us energy. We're able to go out there and play without worrying about making mistakes, so it's just giving us a lot of freedom to just go play, go attack and be the play-makers that we have on our defense. It's been fun and we've loved every bit of it."

TOP PLAYS

*Rookie tight end Daniel Bellinger, a fourth-round draft choice, had his most productive day yet and racked up a handful of catches. The San Diego State product is known for his sure hands, and he showed them today.

*Cornerback Maurice Canady broke up a pass in the end zone to prevent a score. Canady was part of a series of roster moves on May 18 that brought in four veterans on defense. Canady, 6-1 and 200 pounds, entered the NFL as a 2016 sixth-round draft choice by Baltimore, where he played his first three-plus seasons.

*Practice ended with a competition from the two-yard line, and second-year cornerback Aaron Robinson won it for the defense with a pass breakup.

Why indeed.

I mean, that IS exactly what SCCHOEN said, and why it's a bad idea, in HIS view. And then goes out and does the opposite.

Doesn't whether or not a player 'fits' lie in the eye of the coaching staff? It's not like every player out there comes with a name tag that tells you "man corner" "Zone press" "not a scheme fit". What fans think, what a writer posts on twitter, and what Wink thinks of a player are three unique things.

Also this.

I think fans mistake the job of a head coach. Head Coaches should be coaching the junior coaches, and enabling their coordinators to excel. We tend to think of hoad coaches as making players, but it's just as much about leading assistants, developing coaches, and *identifying who can coach or not*.

100%. look at all the coaches McVay has developed. Defense is obviously not his area of expertise but he was smart enough to lean on Wade Phillips' experience when he was just starting out, then perhaps too smart hiring Brandon Staley because he was gone a year later as a HC, but then replaced him with Raheem Morris and won a SB.

Hiring quality assistants is right up there with the most important skills of a head coach. Shurmur ran a decent offense so had he hired a quality DC or vice versa with Judge either may still be here even with all their other flaws.
