This is the time of year when teams begin to come together and players set the stage for training camp before rosters are finalized and the season commences.

Here is a look at players who stood out at OTA No. 3:

WR RUEBEN RANDLE

The fourth-year pro opened up 11-on-11 team drills with a highlight catch, snatching a pass from quarterback Eli Manning with one hand on the very first play.

Randle followed that up with another reception for a sizeable gain during no-huddle drills later in practice.

SAFETY LANDON COLLINS

With no starters returning at the position, the Giants need major contributions from their young safeties, including rookie Landon Collins, whom they traded up to draft with the first pick of the second round.

And through rookie minicamp and now three OTAs, he’s starting to look the part.

Today he jumped in front of a Manning pass intended for running back Rashad Jennings out of the backfield during 7-on-7 drills. Collins was able to swat it to the ground for an incompletion.

CB PRINCE AMUKAMARA

With the departure of safety and defensive co-captain Antrel Rolle in free agency, cornerback Prince Amukamara became the longest-tenured Giant in the secondary.

Preparing for his fifth NFL season since he was selected in the first round in 2011, Amukamara made a couple big plays today, including breaking up a Manning pass for wide receiver Julian Talley during 11-on-11s.

“My expectations never change,” Amukamara said this offseason. “It’s always to be the No. 1 cornerback on this team and then hopefully become the No. 1 cornerback in this league. I want to accomplish all -- from Pro Bowls to All-Pros -- and hopefully just keep getting more and more interceptions, personally.”
