Jalin Hyatt makes catch of the day at OTAs; Deonte Banks grabs INT


OTA No. 6 is in the books.

The Giants wrapped up a busy week of spring practices on Friday at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. They have one more week of OTAs before minicamp and summer break.

Here are the touchdowns, takeaways, and other top plays from the day:

It took a while for the offense to get going against the talented defensive front four, but it broke through during 11-on-11 drills in the red zone. Tommy DeVito threw short touchdown passes to wide receivers Darius Slayton and Jalin Hyatt, who made the catch of the day with a leaping one-handed grab in the end zone.

Drew Lock threw a handful of touchdowns, including two to wide receiver Bryce Ford-Wheaton, who is coming back from a torn ACL that he suffered in the preseason finale. Lock also hit rookie tight end Theo Johnson, the team's fourth-round pick from Penn State, for a score.


The Giants are putting a lot on the plate of cornerback Deonte Banks in his second season, and the former first-round pick has risen to the challenge so far this spring. Aided by a Kayvon Thibodeaux pressure, Banks notched the lone interception of the day during 11-on-11 drills in the red zone.

More Top Plays

Daniel Jones took his normal 7-on-7 reps to start the day and completed passes to Slayton, Johnson, and Allen Robinson II.

Cornerback Cor'Dale Flott showed good coverage on a deep ball during 7-on-7 and forced an incompletion. Coach Brian Daboll and the Giants have "a lot of confidence" in Flott playing opposite Banks on the outside.

"It gives me confidence too that the coaches have confidence in me, that the team has confidence in me," Flott said last week. "Like I said, just continue to be the best version of myself."

The defense racked up the pass deflections in the final practice of the week. Jalen Mills and Jason Pinnock got their hands on multiple attempts. Tyler Nubin prevented a touchdown with a breakup in the end zone. Fellow rookie Dru Phillips also broke up a play.

And then there were the would-be sacks. Outside linebacker Brian Burns would have had at least two quarterback takedowns in a live setting. Thibodeaux found his way into the backfield on multiple occasions, while Boogie Basham and Azeez Ojulari also would have had sacks.

Dexter Lawrence batted down two passes at the line of scrimmage. D.J. Davidson also had one of his own.

Yesterday, Lawrence was asked by a reporter about the title of best defensive tackle in the NFL being up for grabs following Aaron Donald's retirement. Could it be him? "It could be," the two-time Pro Bowler responded. "I've just got to keep working, working on my weaknesses and getting better with my strengths. It took me by surprise honestly. Look, 10 years is a long time, but you know you expect more things like that, but he left the game on top. A lot of respect to him to what he brought. There probably won't be another one of him. A lot of respect."
