2. Do they tweak the offensive line at all? With left tackle Will Beatty sidelined and right guard Chris Snee limited, the Giants regularly lined up with Charles Brown, Geoff Schwartz, J.D. Walton, Brandon Mosley, and Justin Pugh on the first-team offensive line during OTAs. We’ll see if the coaches keep it the same and how second-round draft choice Weston Richburg fits into the depth chart.
3. How are the tight ends coming along? The competition at the position remains open as minicamp sets the stage for training camp and the upcoming preseason. “What I do like is the fact that the young guys have jumped in there and done, I think, a good job of understanding what’s been asked of them and really doing well in limiting their assignment errors,” Coughlin said last week.
4. Will the pace of picking up the new offense speed up? Coughlin admitted the learning curve under new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo has been “slow but steady” during OTAs. This will be the last time the entire team is together before a brief hiatus before the players return for training camp. “We’re getting there,” Coughlin said. “There’s a lot of things that have to be converted in the guys who have been here, in their minds and the new people who have not been in a system such as this, you’ve got a lot to learn. It’s a work in progress.”
5. What is the injury situation? We already know that Beatty, who fractured his leg in the 2013 season finale, will sit out minicamp after not participating in OTAs. But wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., their first-round choice, hopes to return to the field for minicamp. The rookie from LSU missed several OTA practices due to a hamstring strain.
