Sideline View: DJ throws perfect TD to John Ross

JOHN-ROSS-SIDELINE-VIEW

It was the second straight day of padded practice before a day off for the team on Sunday. It was another warmer day with temperatures in the mid-80s and humidity continuing to rise.

* Daniel Jones had one of his best throws of camp today, fitting in a pass over the middle to John Ross. He threaded the pass through a number of defenders and hit Ross perfectly in stride. After the catch, Ross had room to run and quickly accelerated off to the races.

* David Sills continues to make plays, this time scoring a touchdown at the end of practice. Glennon put great touch on the ball and Sills came down with it inside the sideline, dragging his feet to score the touchdown.

* Leonard Williams was unblockable for most of practice. He was living in the offensive backfield and could have had several tackles for losses and sacks if tackling was allowed. He looks primed to build on a breakout 2020 season.

* Williams was not the only one having a strong day on the defensive line. A 2020 undrafted free agent, David Moa found his way to the Giants last season after brief stops in Minnesota and Atlanta. At 6'3 and 296 pounds, Moa got through the middle of offensive line and got to the quarterback a couple of times.

* Ifeadi Odegnibo also won around left tackle and would have had a sack on Daniel Jones if tackling was allowed. Cam Brown got into the backfield off the edge on a pass play, too. The defensive line was able to keep pressure on the Giants offense for most of the day.

* Darnay Holmes was a standout. On a pass into the flat, Holmes accelerated in front of the receiver and made a diving catch in front of the receiver to secure the interception. Holmes is in prime position to be the team's nickel cornerback, but he will have to outplay the Giants safeties, who each will want to be on the field when the team plays more than four defensive backs.

* James Bradberry continues to quietly play well. Whenever a pass is thrown in his direction, there is not a lot of separation between him and the wide receiver.

* In a series of red zone team periods at the start of practice, the offense got the better of the defense. Devontae Booker ran into the end zone through a huge hole in the middle of the line before Daniel Jones hit CJ Board for a touchdown. Booker had another touchdown run a couple plays later. Alex Bachman also caught two touchdowns in the red zone from Mike Glennon. Jones had one more touchdown pass to Evan Engram in a separate red zone drill at the end of practice, but he might have been sacked before getting the pass off in a true game situation.

* Corey Clement has had consecutive strong days in practice, with a long run yesterday followed by a touchdown during goal line drills today. He has shown solid burst and reliable hands. When healthy, he was also a very reliable special teams player in Philadelphia.

* The field goal kickers had a strong day with Graham Gano and Ryan Santoso making all their field goals except for one miss by Santoso from 50+ yards away at the end of practice (He appeared to make one from 58 yards earlier).

* The Giants ran the tackling drill that trains defenders to take the proper angle on the ball carrier in space. They also brought back their short-area blocking drill, where one offensive player has to block one defensive player 1-on-1 for a ball carrier. There were good blocks from Kaden Smith and Nakia Griffin-Stewart.
