Check out what TE Travis Beckum said in this afternoon's media session.

Q: How do you feel about your development so far?

A: I always thought that the only way for me to be at my best is the chances for me to get those reps. My opportunity and the more time that I am able to run those routes, the more I am going to be able to perfect it as far as that and blocking as well. Like I said, the more reps, the better and now I am getting that opportunity so I am trying to take advantage of it.

Q: Have you gotten a lot of reps in the past?

A: I would say not as many but I think that guys are put in different positions especially me coming out of the backfield now and out of the slot and the Y. I think different positions are key for me, especially moving me around. Like I said, I am just trying to take advantage of it.

Q: How do you feel being in the middle of the field?

A: Whatever we need, I am willing to do and get the job done. That’s what the NFL is about, if a guy goes down, somebody else needs to step up. I think they brought a couple good guys in to try and help us and all we are trying to do is get better each and every day.

Q: How do you feel the Giants will use you this year?

A: I don’t know. As far as now, I am kind of everywhere. I have been out wide and I have been in the slot and at the Y and in the backfield. I am moving a lot more in the motions and slides. It is something different but I am definitely excited about learning it and going forward in this camp. 

Q: Are you comfortable moving around?

A: Yes, I think that I was really big in college with it. It is something that I have been doing since my sophomore year in college is moving from the back field or from the slot. That’s when I am at my best is when they get me out moving in space and I can take advantage of the opportunity.
