Good Morning, New York Giants Fans!

The Giants might have replicated the success they had in the 2018 NFL draft this year, but practicing in shorts with no pads can be deceiving. So far, we’ve seen some good things from the rookies, though, enough to provide optimism moving forward.

The progression of Darius Slayton and CJ Conrad has been impressive, Daniel Jonas has had his fair share of successes, and cornerback DeAndre Baker has been excellent. But who’s really played at the top of their game?

Here are the top 3 rookies so far:

1.) TE – CJ Conrad

The Giants snagged undrafted tight end CJ Conrad in the hopes of him providing value. Speaking of value, he’s one of just two players that earned first-team reps this summer. He’s been a great addition for a UDFA, and hopefully, he can make an impact during the regular season.

2.) CB – DeAndre Baker

The Giants’ expected No. 2 corner has played well enough to fit the part. His tenacity in coverage and speed will provide quality alongside Janoris Jenkins, I’m looking forward to seeing more from the young defender.

3.) WR – Darius Slayton

After starting off with multiple drops, Slayton picked up the slack as training camp progressed. He was the other player to earn first-team reps. His chemistry with Jones has been growing steadily and his speed makes him a threat everywhere on the field. His progression will be exciting to watch.
