Top Plays: Darius Slayton, Jalin Hyatt go deep at Sunday's practice

Following a day off, the Giants were back on the field Sunday for training camp practice No. 4.

The session featured a few team periods, where the offense and defense faced off against each other in 11-on-11s, along with some 1-on-1 drills.

Here are the top plays from the day:

🔹 For the second consecutive practice, wide receiver Jalin Hyatt put together a strong performance. Team drills primarily took place close to midfield, so touchdowns were at a minimum. However, Hyatt was able to get behind the defense and make a nice catch for a touchdown on a deep pass from Tyrod Taylor during 11-on-11s.


🔹 The offense lined up at the 5-yard line for one play, which resulted in safety Jason Pinnock making a leaping, one-handed interception in the end zone, although the play might have been called a sack in a game.


🔹 Hyatt wasn't the only receiver who caught a deep pass on Sunday, as Daniel Jones connected with Darius Slayton for a 40+ yard contested reception. The two linked up for an additional two receptions during practice, with Slayton making a nice move to get open near the sideline on both.

🔹 Rookie cornerback Tre Hawkins III continued his strong play in training camp with an impressive, diving pass breakup.

🔹 Taylor hit tight end Lawrence Cager on several occasions, including one in which Cager reeled in the ball with one hand. The fourth and final reception between the two players resulted in a 20+ yard gain over the middle.

🔹 There was nearly a second interception in practice when cornerback Darnay Holmes got his hands on a deep pass, preventing a long reception. The ball popped up into the air and safety Bobby McCain was almost able to come down with it for a turnover.

🔹 Similar to the first three practices of training camp (and all of spring practices), Jones was able to find tight end Darren Waller over the middle for a big gain. It feels as if those two connect on at least one big pass during every practice.

"That boy's something special," Shepard told the media following Sunday's practice. "I was telling people today, I don't even like for people to be on (Darren Waller) Wall's back. Like they've got tight coverage and they want to make a breakup but don't jump on my man's back. That boy's a monster. Did you see him go up and get that ball the other day? I was telling DJ (Daniel Jones), I was like, 'Man look, that thing would've been sailing over my head.' That boy Wall came out of nowhere! He looks good though. He's a freak."

🔹 Prior to team drills, the wide receivers lined up opposite the cornerbacks for some 1-on-1 drills, a period which saw cornerbacks Adoree' Jackson and Deonte Banks each record a pass breakup.

🔹 Both Hyatt and Sterling Shepard made nice moves to get open in the back of the end zone during individual drills.

🔹 Collin Johnson made a contested, one-handed catch during 1-on-1s.

🔹 Isaiah Hodgins was able to get both feet in right in the corner of the end zone for a toe-tap touchdown.
