  Giants | Evan Engram lining up everywhere    Fri May 26, 10:25 AM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram lined up everywhere in practice Thursday, May 25. He was in-line, in the slot, out wide and in motion like an H-back during team drills.

Footballguys view: Engram kind of has to line up everywhere...just so long as he's not in line as a blocker. He's a super sized wide receiver who plays like Jordan Reed. He could become a favorite of QB Eli Manning because of his speed and ability to create mismatches every time he steps onto the field.

  Giants | Odell Beckham will be at minicamp    Thu May 25, 04:47 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. is not participating in voluntary workouts, but he will 'for sure' attend minicamp June 13.

Footballguys view: Voluntary workouts are not high on his priority list, but when the work becomes mandatory expect Beckham to be there. It's not a big deal as some are making it out to be....but hanging around Johnny Manziel will do that sort of thing.

  Giants | Odell Beckham absent Thursday    Thu May 25, 11:44 AM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. was absent from voluntary workouts again Thursday, May 25.

Footballguys view: He's very busy hanging out with Johnny Manziel and signing Nike contracts. Listen, Beckham Jr has the timing with Eli Manning down. Skipping OTAs won't hurt that. But the optics are less than awesome considering our last two impressions of him were 1) a boat trip right before a 2) playoff game he was terrible in. We hope Beckham Jr has grown up as his talent is undeniable and the only thing stopping him is himself.

  Giants | Justin Pugh looking for big contract    Sun May 21, 04:23 PM

New York Giants OG Justin Pugh said he believes he is in line for a lucrative contract if he plays well again in 2017. 'I've gone out there and done everything they've ever asked me to do. So I know my worth. I'm going to go out there and play my best season of football and hopefully the Giants say, 'Let's pay him what he deserves,'' Pugh said.

Footballguys view: Pugh has taken notice of the deals other guards have signed this offseason and knows where he stands among the pecking order in the NFL. The Giants should work to lock up the 2013 first-round pick, but they could always franchise tag him next offseason if need be. Either way, it shouldn't be too long before Pugh gets a big payday.

  Giants | Paul Perkins lacks explosiveness?    Fri May 19, 10:01 PM

New York Giants RB Paul Perkins' longest run last year was 22 yards, and his 1.55 yards after contact ranked 28th out of 42 qualified running backs.

Footballguys view: Perkins is an elusive runner, but he's not a burner by any stretch of the imagination. As a smaller back, he shouldn't be asked to run between the tackles as that won't work consistently. The Giants should use Perkins in a RBBC (perhaps as the lead back) with rookie back Wayne Gallman. Perkins has a current ADP of RB35 (7.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Giants | Shane Vereen ready to go    Fri May 19, 09:54 PM

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) is fully recovered after tearing his triceps twice last season.

Footballguys view: Vereen is going to have a chance for snaps in a Giants backfield that is up in the air in 2017. Paul Perkins and Wayne Gallman will compete with Vereen for touches, but both of those young backs are currently ahead in the pecking order.

  Giants | LeGarrette Blount had offer from NYG    Wed May 17, 10:44 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount had an offer from the New York Giants before he agreed with the Eagles.

Footballguys view: The Giants are looking for a big back to pair with speedy Paul Perkins in a RBBC. Instead of adding Blount, the Giants added Wayne Gallman (Clemson) in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL draft. We'll see Gallman worked in the rotation behind Perkins when the team needs a little more power.

  Giants | Kevin Snead signs with Giants    Mon May 15, 11:38 AM

Undrafted free-agent WR Kevin Snead (Carson-Newman) was signed by the New York Giants Monday, May 15. OL Martin Wallace was waived.

Footballguys view: Snead was with the team on a tryout basis after going undrafted, and he must've done enough to impress them in order to earn a contract. He's one of the fastest players in the league, and his game is all about speed and getting on top of the defense. In addition to his receiver duties, Snead also played some defensive back and returned punts and kicks in college.

  Giants | Chad Wheeler signed    Sun May 14, 10:40 AM

The New York Giants signed undrafted free-agent OL Chad Wheeler (Southern California) Friday, May 12. Complete terms of the deal were not disclosed, although it is believed that he received a $20,000 signing bonus.

Footballguys view: Wheeler might be a starter at tackle someday, but he needs to add core strength. He showed athleticism on the edge during his college career at USC, and he's drawn comparisons to Ty Sambrailo (Broncos) by some in the scouting community.

  Giants | Wayne Gallman to see important carries    Sat May 13, 01:01 AM

New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman will likely serve as the primary backup to RB Paul Perkins and could see carries at the goal line, according to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News.

Footballguys view: Gallman is the big back in this situation, so he may play a larger role than some think. We love Perkins' ability, but as a smaller back he's likely to have his touches monitored. We could see Perkins as the lead back, the pass-catching back but Gallman the powerback, short-yardage back and goal-line back in 2017. Let's see how things unfold in training camp and the preseason.

  Giants | Evan Engram a complete tight end?    Fri May 12, 09:34 PM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram is 'not just a big receiver,' offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan said Friday, May 12. 'We do feel comfortable about the things we want him to do when he has his hand in the ground,' Sullivan said.

Footballguys view: Yeah...we'll agree to disagree here. We love Engram's ability as a receiver. He impressed on film and at the Senior Bowl...but it was as a receiver only. Engram is a work in progress as a blocker. The team needed a pass-catching weapon at tight end, and that's why they selected Engram in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft.

  Giants | Dalvin Tomlinson agrees to terms    Wed May 10, 05:09 PM

New York Giants second-round draft choice DT Dalvin Tomlinson agreed to terms on a four-year deal with the Giants Wednesday, May 10. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Tomlinson is your classic Alabama defensive tackle, so the Giants get at least a quality run stopper here. He's got the athleticism to work on twists and stunts when asked to get after the passer too. Tomlinson could start as a rotational player for the Giants, but he's got the skill set to be a three-down player when fully developed.

  Giants | Mark Herzlich cross-training at tight end    Wed May 10, 12:13 PM

New York Giants LB Mark Herzlich has accepted the team's challenge for him to learn the tight end position this offseason in order to address the teams need for a blocker at that position, according to NJ.com's Dan Duggan.

Footballguys view: The Giants could use a blocking tight end, and it might just be Herzlich who gets the job done best. They drafted Evan Engram (Ole Miss) in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft, but he's an "F" tight end who is there to rip the seam and star as a receiver.

  Giants | Geno Smith good to go    Tue May 9, 07:44 PM

New York Giants QB Geno Smith (knee) said he's 100 percent healthy and believes he would be fully cleared to play if he had to.

  Giants | Brandon Marshall to play a few more years    Sat May 6, 02:32 PM

New York Giants WR Brandon Marshall said he plans to play two more seasons before he retires.

Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick of the Broncos in 2006, Marshall has been one of the most consistent WRs in the NFL...even though he's bounced around to more than a few teams. He signed a two-year deal with the Giants, but nothing is set in stone. If his body feels good in a couple of years, Marshall could easily change his mind.

  Giants | Paul Perkins will start for Giants    Mon May 1, 04:32 PM

New York Giants RB Paul Perkins will be the starting running back, head coach Ben McAdoo announced Monday, May 1.

Footballguys view: An important note here, but it doesn't mean Perkins will be without competition for touches. Perkins has speed and quickness to make moves in the open field and be dangerous with the ball in his hands. However, he's not a big back and the Giants could be monitoring his touches even if he's the starter.

New York Giants QB Keith Wenning was waived Monday, May 1.

  Giants | Big Blue takes Wayne Gallman    Sat Apr 29, 01:51 PM

The New York Giants selected Clemson RB Wayne Gallman with the No. 140 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Saturday, April 29.

Footballguys view: The Giants have been looking for help in the backfield. Gallman is an angry runner who doesn't shy away from contact. Even though he's not the biggest guy (215 pounds), Gallman will provide a power element to the Giants backfield. Paul Perkins should get work as a change-of-pace back along with Gallman in a RBBC.


  Giants | Davis Webb drafted by NYG    Fri Apr 28, 10:46 PM

The New York Giants selected QB Davis Webb with the 87th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.

Footballguys view: Originally a starter at Texas Tech, Webb lost his job to Pat Mahomes in 2015 and decided to transfer to Berkley to replace Jared Goff. Webb has a nice release and can drive the ball, but doesn't adjust to defenses--the ball goes where it's supposed to go on paper, and damn the consequences. Is slow to get setup, and between that and his tendency to not look off corners, too many of his balls are contested. Plenty of his throws came under 10 yards and anything beyond that suffers from inaccuracy. Webb has upside but also a lot of work to do. He's going to be getting plenty of education behind Eli Manning. Two, three years from now if Manning is done? Webb could be the next man up.


  Giants | Dalvin Tomlinson selected by the Giants    Fri Apr 28, 08:57 PM

The New York Giants selected Alabama DT Dalvin Tomlinson with the No. 55 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.


  Giants | Evan Engram ticketed for versatile role    Fri Apr 28, 01:31 AM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram will be used 'in a variety of ways,' according to head coach Ben McAdoo. GM Jerry Reese also said the team viewed Engram as someone that could 'line up anywhere.'

Footballguys view: Will one of those ways be replacing Ereck Flowers? Because that was a big need they ignored for a guy who, right now, replicates a lot of what they are paying Brandon Marshall to do. Hopefully the Giats can get some quality offensive line help in the second or third rounds, because all the weapons in the world won't help Eli Manning if he's horizontal.

  Giants | Evan Engram selected by the Giants    Thu Apr 27, 10:51 PM

The New York Giants selected Mississippi TE Evan Engram with the No. 23 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Thursday, April 27.

Footballguys view: A bit of a surprise from the standpoint of protecting their quarterback, Engram is a nightmare to matchup against. He doesn't have the size you look for but the speed and overall athletic ability make up for it. He's a dynamic playmaker who joins a lot of other playmakers, including Brandon Marshall who plays a similar role in this offense.


  Giants | Odell Beckham's option picked up    Thu Apr 27, 03:58 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. officially had his fifth-year option exercised Thursday, April 27.

Footballguys view: In other news, someone will get picked first overall Thursday night. This, like the probability someone is selected with the first overall pick, was a pretty sure bet. Even with some of His tantrum issues, Beckham was going to get that fifth year activated.

  Giants | LeGarrette Blount has mutual NYG interest    Tue Apr 25, 08:14 AM

Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) has mutual interest in the New York Giants, and that situation could heat up as we get close to the NFL draft.

Footballguys view: The Giants could close in on Blount so long as the price tag is agreeable. Blount would give them the power element they're missing. If added, Blount would be the banger between the tackles while second-year pro Paul Perkins would work as the speed/receiving back.

  Giants | Paul Perkins wants to be three-down back    Sun Apr 23, 05:48 PM

New York Giants RB Paul Perkins said his goal is to become a three-down running back for the Giants.

Footballguys view: Perkins is a speedy change-of-pace back, but he's got the chance to be more. He's intent running inside even though that's not his forte. Perkins has the speed to make the corner, but he doesn't try to take every run outside. The Giants are looking at veteran thumpers like Adrian Peterson or LeGarrette Blount, and they could also try to find a big back in the 2017 NFL draft. Needless to say, Perkins is going to have competition for touches this season.

  Giants | NYG still interested in veteran running backs    Sun Apr 23, 09:49 AM

The New York Giants are one of several teams continuing to keep close tabs on free-agent RBs LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) and Adrian Peterson (Vikings), in the hopes that their salary demands will go down prior to the draft.

Footballguys view: We like the upside of second-year pro Paul Perkins, but the team could see him as more of a speedy change-of-pace back only. The interest in a two-down banger like Blount of Peterson shows they will likely be using a RBBC in 2017. Stay tuned here. With the 2017 NFL draft coming up this week, we could see the Giants add a big back to the mix.

  Giants | No decision yet on OBJ's fifth-year option    Sat Apr 22, 11:18 AM

The New York Giants remain noncommittal on whether or not they intend on exercising the fifth-year option on WR Odell Beckham Jr. worth around $8 million. The deadline to do so is May 3.

Footballguys view: The Giants should have no problem deciding that Beckham is worth that price tag. Then it would give them more time to work out a long-term deal that likely pays him over $10 million annually as he's one of the best young WRs in the game.

  Giants | Elijah McGuire visiting Giants    Mon Apr 17, 08:31 AM

Louisiana-Lafayette RB Elijah McGuire is visiting the New York Giants Monday, April 17.

Footballguys view: McGuire is a dangerous change-of-pace back who can excel in space. He's not a banger between the tackles, but he's good as a receiver and can make defenders miss in the open field. McGuire is likely to be a late-round pick or priority free agent. The Giants have Paul Perkins as a dynamic runner or receiver out of the backfield, but they could be looking for additional depth.

  Giants | David Njoku's visit with NYG canceled    Sun Apr 16, 09:58 PM

Miami (Fla.) TE David Njoku's scheduled visit with the New York Giants for Monday, April 17, has been canceled, according to a source.

Footballguys view: There's no word as to why the visit was cancelled. Njoku should be a first-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft, and he'd be a great fit for the Giants with their pick at 23rd overall.

  Giants | David Njoku meeting with Giants on Monday    Sun Apr 16, 12:45 PM

Miami (Fla.) TE David Njoku is set to visit the New York Giants on Monday, April 17.

The Giants have the 23rd pick in the first round, and Njoku may be the best option there.
