Top plays from OTA practice (5/28)

Posted May 27, 2015

Here are the Giants' top plays from Thursday's OTA practice

1. ROBINSON'S OVER-THE-SHOULDER CATCH

Tight end Adrien Robinson, who is entering his fourth NFL season, made the highlight reel for the second day in a row.

After catching a touchdown on Wednesday, Robinson followed up with another nifty over-the-shoulder grab on a well-placed ball from Quarterback Ryan Nassib during 7-on-7 drills.

2. SOUP’S ON


Nassib and wide receiver Marcus “Soup” Harris were cooking together today at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center during the Giants’ second OTA practice. Nassib hit Harris twice -- once on the left sideline and another on the right -- in full stride for big gains. 3. ELI AND RANDLE CONNECT

While adjusting to the Giants’ new-look offensive line, Eli Manning and the offense are settling into the second season under offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo.

Manning made the list today with a perfect strike to Rueben Randle, the Giants’ second-leading receiver from last season, during 7-on-7 drills.

“I think you can still simulate the real speed,” Manning said yesterday about OTAs. “There are different rules. You can’t have certain techniques by the defense; you can’t play press. So you don’t get all those things. But it’s still good to be out there, having a defense and having a rush and feeling the pocket for me.

It’s easy to drop back there with no defense and complete balls all day. You have a pass rush and you have guys in your face, so you have to find windows and find lanes and make smart decisions. That’s important. It’s a good thing to work on these next few weeks.”

HONORABLE MENTION

Defensive end Kerry Wynn batted down a Nassib pass during team drills; wide receiver Juron Criner made a leaping catch of a pass from Nassib; cornerback Prince Amukamara broke up a pass intended for wide receiver Corey Washington over the middle; and Manning found an open Preston Parker for a touchdown during red zone work.
