Top Plays: Jalin Hyatt, Nick McCloud highlight the day

Tuesday has been circled because it's the first practice in pads, but Monday didn't disappoint as an appetizer.

So, without further ado, let's get into the highlights from the jam-packed day at training camp:

Catch up on all the action from training camp at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center.


🔹 Daniel Jones threw three touchdowns during team periods, one apiece to wide receivers Parris Campbell and Darius Slayton and another to Daniel Bellinger. If they were in full game mode with live contact, the latter would have been a good battle to the end zone with Xavier McKinney as the tight end and safety met near the goal line on a bang-bang play.

🔹 Bellinger also hooked up with backup Tyrod Taylor, who shook off a blitz coming off the corner, for a score.

🔹 Running back Saquon Barkley rushed up the middle for a short touchdown.

🔹 Rookie wide receiver Jalin Hyatt looks to be getting more and more comfortable at his first NFL training camp. In addition to a great sideline grab, the third-round pick hauled in a deep pass in the end zone from Taylor.

"He's worked really hard," coach Brian Daboll said Sunday. "He's an athletic young man who has long speed and short-space quickness. He's done a good job since he's been here. He's got a long way to go, but we're just trying to bring him along day-by-day and maybe keep adding a little bit more to his plate each day, if he can handle it."

🔹 Taylor also threw a touchdown to wide receiver David Sills V and made a nifty shovel pass over the top of the defense that looked more like Pop-A-Shot to tight end Tommy Sweeney in the end zone.


🔹 Defensive back Nick McCloud had a big day, intercepting one pass among a handful of other pass breakups. Claimed off waivers from Buffalo just 11 days before the start of last season, McCloud played a career-high 14 games in 2022 and made his first eight NFL starts. He broke up seven passes to go along with 1.5 sacks.

"I would say he's been a very flexible player, not just here, but in Buffalo," Daboll said. "He has played safety, he has played the nickel, he has played corner. He has been a special teams player. So, again, it goes back to the more you can do. He's kind of moved all around. I'd probably expect similar throughout camp. But he's a smart player. It's a benefit when you can have a guy who can move in a lot of different spots."


🔹 Rookie Deonte Banks and fellow cornerback Adoree' Jackson each had a pass breakup.

🔹 Jamison Crowder, the veteran wide receiver who was activated off the non-football injury list on Sunday, wowed the crowd with a one-handed catch, plucking the football right out of the air.

🔹 In addition to his touchdown, Campbell made two difficult catches, leaping for one and snagging another in between two defenders as he fell to the ground near the sideline.

🔹 Second-year outside linebacker Kayvon Thibodeaux had a nice cat-and-mouse game with Jones during 11-on-11 work.

🔹 Inside linebacker Micah McFadden, another remember of the 2022 draft class, also got pressure on a play.
