If you want to see some of the early highlights, check out the Sights and Sounds video that was posted by the Giants account on Twitter. Saquon Barkley features in it, as well as B.J. Hill and the others that you would expect to see.

Thomas Sirk is trying out for the Giants as a quarterback, but interestingly, he was seen spending time as a tight end today. It could just be a case of the coaches testing how versatile a player is, and needing extra bodies at tight end during camp, or it could mean they really are looking for more depth at the position going forward.

Outside linebacker Lorenzo Carter was seen getting some tips directly from defensive coordinator James Bettcher, which is always good to see after the Giants invested a third round pick in Carter.

While the Giants fanbase isn’t too fond of Ereck Flowers, it looks like head coach Pat Shurmur is willing to give him another chance. Shurmur is in contact with Flowers, and if Flowers is indeed in shape and able to play well at right tackle, it would help the Giants significantly.

Strangely, third round pick B.J. Hill hasn’t talked to the Giants defensive leaders yet, which may be a concern or a non story. It’s too early to tell, but it’s worth keeping an eye on going forward.

Saquon Barkley is expected to be a pass catching running back, and early reports from camp confirm that theory. He’s already done a good job in the passing game and couldn’t be contained in coverage by linebackers.
