Happy Saturday Dexter Lawrence NFL Draft , and welcome to Week 10 of the 2018 college football season! The New York Giants are off this week, so we don’t have to look forward to an NFL game day with any trepidation. However, the reason for that trepidation, the 1-7 Giants’ play this year, gives us plenty of reason to pay attention to college football in advance of the 2019 NFL Draft. I have already put out my first mock draft of the 2019 draft season, and it will be the last one until after the underclassmen declare.Until then we have plenty of good games, and players to watch. So, let’s get to today’s slate of games!(6) Georgia at (11) KentuckyCBS - 3:30 p.m. We’ve mentioned Georgia before, and that’s because they have a whole mess of talented players. Quarterback Jake Fromm is probably the most interesting, especially if the Giants wind up punting their quarterback decision to the 2020 draft. Beyond Fromm, Georgia has a pair of defensive backs in CB Deandre Baker and S J.R. Reed who should interest a team that is starved for them. The Giants probably can’t afford to invest a premium draft pick in a receiver, but junior Riley Ridley could intrigue if he both declares and slips in the draft.On the Kentucky side of things, the first player to watch is linebacker/EDGE Josh Allen. Like the similarly named rookie quarterback, Allen is big, long Color Rush Deandre Baker Jersey , and athletic. He isn’t the most devastating edge rusher in the class, but he has greater fluidity in space than many pass rushers have. The Giants might also be interested in CB Derrick Baity. Baity has the length and ability in press coverage the Giants need for their defensive scheme, but he isn’t the most physical player, nor is he as ‘twitchy’ as you would like to see from a corner.Players to watchGeorgiaJake Fromm (QB)Riley Ridley (WR)Terry Godwin (WR)Deandre Baker (CB)J.R.

The future of the quarterback position is up in the air for the Giants, and Duke’s Daniel Jones could well be high on their radar. They have, after all, had a fair amount success with quarterbacks coached by David Cutcliffe in college. Jones has prototypical size and arm strength, athleticism, as well as generally solid accuracy and placement. He is also improving with regards to the finer points of the position, such as movement in the pocket, processing speed, and reading defenses before the snap.Of course, there’s also the Miami Hurricanes. Despite not taking the expected step after their exciting 2017 campaign, they still have talent to interest scouts — particularly on the defensive side of the ball. Considering their ongoing issues at safety, Jaquan Johnson should be particularly interesting. Likewise Youth Deandre Baker Jersey , cornerback Michael Jackson (Odell Beckham Jr. might lobby for him to be drafted based on his name alone) should interest a Giants’ defense in need of big, long, athletic press corners. EDGE Joe Jackson has impressive upside as a long, lean, athletic edge defender, but he needs some development in the finer aspects of playing his position. On the offensive side of the ball, the Giants might also keep an eye on left tackle Tyree St. Lewis.

As you would expect from both these teams, this game is going to be stacked with future NFL players. This game could use a post all its own to take a look at every prospect in the detail he deserves. Instead I’m going to make a quick rundown of the top players who should interest the Giants this year. (Obviously, you should be watching QB Tua Tagovailoa for the same reasons as Jake Fromm in the Georgia game, but like Fromm, he won’t be draft eligible until 2020 at the earliest.)Players to watch *all of themAlabamaQuinnen Williams (DT)Jonah Williams (OT)Raekwon Davis (DL)Mack Wilson (LB)Deionte Thompson (S)LSUGreedy Williams (CB)Devin White (ILB)Rashard Lawrence (DT)Garrett Brumfield (OG) Second-year player is returning from shoulder injury" />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteBig Blue Viewa New York Giants communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsLibraryGiantsOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections New York Giants NewsGiants Training Camp 2016Giants vs. Eagles 2015, Week 17Filed under:New York Giants News“Big day” for Giants’ cornerback Sam Beal as he gets back on the fieldNew,65commentsSecond-year player is returning from shoulder injuryEDTShareTweetShareShare“Big day” for Giants’ cornerback Sam Beal as he gets back on the fieldSam BealEd Valentine [Big Blue View]It was a simple mid-May practice in shorts and t-shirts, the first of OTAs for the New York Giants. For second-year cornerback Sam Beal Womens Deandre Baker Jersey , though, Monday was an admittedly “big day.”“First day out there in a year,” Beal said.Chosen by the Giants in the 2018 Supplemental Draft, Beal went down early in spring workouts last season with a right shoulder injury that landed him on IR.“[Beal] looked good out there today,” said head coach Pat Shurmur. He came to the Giants having had shoulder issues while at Western Michigan, but said the shoulder was not a problem his final collegiate season. He said he hurt it with the Giants on a freak play where he overextended reaching for a ball and believes his arm was grabbed by a receiver.Beal stayed in New Jersey to rehab the shoulder during the offseason.“I don’t think about, I can’t think about it.” he said. “Now it’s just go out there and get my feet wet, work on footwork.“I feel good. I feel strong.”Beal said he has been conditioning the shoulder by hitting heavy bags, boxing and doing push-ups. There is no real hitting at this point of the offseason, so the test of taking a real shot to the shoulder will come later. He said, though, that “I know it’s secure.”Beal is a second-year player, but like rookies DeAndre Baker, Julian Love and Corey Ballentine this will be his first NFL action.Beal lined up with the first team at left corner on Monday, ahead of first-round pick DeAndre Baker. His best play of the day led to an interception Authentic Deandre Baker Jersey , as he leaped into the air and batted an Eli Manning pass into the arms of safety Jabrill Peppers.“I just seen the quarterback [Manning] staring him down,” Beal said of his interception. “I’ve got some good eyes.”While he wanted to make the interception himself, Beal said the best thing about the play was that he had to extend his right arm, the one with the surgically-repaired shoulder.Beal said sitting out a year was “different” but that it “was helpful for me, actually” because he did a lot of film work. That leaves him feeling better prepared this time around.Beal is competing for playing time with his young teammates, but with a year of knowledge in his pocket he is also helping them.Just because I haven’t played doesn’t mean I can’t coach them too. When they came around, I gave them some advice just like the older guys gave me,” he said. “Coach let us know the same thing, help the younger guys even though I’m a young guy too. I’ve been here, so I have to help them. Coaching, though, is not what the Giants are counting on from Beal. They are counting on him becoming a key part of a revamped young secondary, what Beal called the “new NYPD.”Monday was a small, but important step in the right direction for Beal.
