3 Standout Players at OTA Practice (6/1)

Posted May 27, 2015

Giants.com highlights three players that made an impact at Monday's OTA practice

The New York Giants held their fourth of 10 organized team practice activities on Monday at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center.

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. 4:

1. WR RUEBEN RANDLE

Randle is becoming a mainstay on this list so far this year. With Victor Cruz -- and Odell Beckham Jr. today -- not practicing in team drills, Randle has made the most of being the go-to receiver.

He began the new week with a pair of touchdowns during the first portion of 11-on-11s inside the field house at the QDTC.

The first one was a grab over the middle in the back of the end zone, and on the second, he caught the ball at the goal line and turned to take it in for the score.

2. TE JEROME CUNNINGHAM
With fellow tight end Larry Donnell sidelined due to lingering Achilles tendinitis, Cunningham, like Randle, capitalized on the increased reps. Left and right and from multiple quarterbacks, Cunningham made a handful of catches today. His best was a grab over the middle from quarterback Ryan Nassib.

“Yeah, he made a couple plays today,” coach Tom Coughlin said of Cunningham. “He has gotten plenty of playing time. Hopefully he will continue to benefit from it.”

3. SAFETY COOPER TAYLOR

Taylor, a third-year pro who missed all of last season because of a foot injury, now has four OTAs under his belt in the top safety tandem. Playing alongside rookie second-round draft choice Landon Collins, Taylor flashed a couple times today, catching the attention of Coughlin. Meanwhile, Nat Berhe, who lined up with Collins during rookie minicamp earlier this month, is still dealing with a calf issue.

“Those that are here are going to get a good look,” Coughlin said. “There are not that many guys working right now and they all are getting a lot of reps. We are looking for Nat to get back in there and help balance it out.

“[Taylor] flashed a few times today and I was glad to see that. Big, strong man. If we can keep him healthy and he can stay out there.”
