Key Takeaways From Giants Voluntary Minicamp

New York Giants football is back!

As the Giants conclude their second day of voluntary minicamp, let’s take a look at the key takeaways and notable players from these limited practices.


  • Odell Beckham Jr. is in the building
  • Though limited to mostly rehab still, Odell is showing his maturity by being here for voluntary workouts

  • Olivier Vernon, Romeo Okwara, Kareem Martin, and Jordan Williams all were working out as linebackers
    • Vernon on standing up vs. having his hand in the dirt, “It’s nothing really different for me, I’ve done that in the past.”
  • The starting offensive line consists of LT Nate Solder, LG Patrick Omameh, C Brett Jones, RG Jon Halapio, and RT Chad Wheeler
  • Ereck Flowers is still not at the facility, making a possible trade seem more and more likely

  • Damon Harrison has not been to the facility, Head Coach Pat Shurmur does not seem bothered by this.

  • Jonathon Stewart was the “starting” running back, but split carries with Wayne Gallman
  • Paul Perkins is hurt once again, being spotted on the sideline with his arm in a sling

Notable Players

Davis Webb has demonstrated more of the hard work and desire to learn that he showed last season. Head Coach Pat Shurmur seemed to have nothing negative to say about his current back up quarterback. Not only does he seem to have his head coach’s support, he has the support of his teammates as well.

Sterling Shepard seems to be embracing the new system that Pat Shurmur is in. You can really see how he has grown since his rookie season, and I expect him to continue to mature and improve on the field.

Linebacker Derrick Matthews caught some attention at practice grabbing the only interception of the day, on a tipped pass. He was signed from the practice squad at the end of 2017. For a unit that is looking for more depth at the linebacker position, Matthews could have a chance to solidify himself on the field moving forward.

Eli Apple and Janoris Jenkins look to lead the Giants secondary back to its glory of 2016, when they were identified as the NYPD (New York Pass Defence). Apple seems focused and ready to move on from last season, and so does Jenkins.

Here are some nice tosses by Davis Webb – showing off his accuracy and touch over the top and in stride to Jerell Adams.

Two pretty passes from the sophomore quarterback. Reports also say he overthrew a few passes, which may be bi-product of lack of chemistry or rust after the off-season (not playing with a full team).
