Standouts: Colt McCoy looks sharp; WR depth shines

COLT-MCCOY-STANDOUTS

Here were the standouts from Monday's practice:

QB Colt McCoy

Colt McCoy had a sharp day. The veteran 33-year-old was added this off-season to be a stabilizing presence behind Daniel Jones, and from the look of it he has been exactly that. He always looks in control, makes good decisions, and is decisive running the offense. He tends to stick to the short and intermediate routes, but he is always accurate when he makes those throws. His highlight came at the end of practice when he hit Eric Tomlinson right on his back shoulder near the back of the end zone during a "move the ball" session to score a touchdown for the offense.

LB Devante Downs

Devante Downs dropped the hammer on Sandro Platzgummer after he caught a pass over the middle. Downs hit him shoulder to shoulder, sending the rookie running back to the ground. Downs wound up in Saquon Barkley's vicinity a lot throughout the day. Judge has praised Downs for his athleticism, and said it was a reason the team decided to use him at inside linebacker. When he arrived to the Giants last season, he was considered an outside linebacker. 

WR Alex Bachman

Alex Bachman continues to take advantage of his reps. He gets open and catches everything throw in his direction. There was only one plausible pass in 1-on-1s that he failed to hold, but that might have been the only time I have seen it throughout camp. He later made a catch going to the ground for a touchdown. He also made catches later during team drills. He is quick in and out of his breaks, and deceptive at the top of his routes to create separation.
